I wonder what the required velocity is to blow one's head off? Some of those summer line squalls that come up so fast in the Chesapeake seem like they could do that - nasty little storms that always make me nervous if I venture out in the Main Bay in a kayak or with sails aloft. I've seen large sailing yachts have their sails trashed in seconds by these storms, and the storms are invariably followed by some maydays on the VHF.
