Now I'm thinking what other things die for which sins.

theweaselking explains why just duct-taping your torn-off bumper cover is a bad idea:

Yeah, no, crazy dangerous.

Bumpers exist so they can Die For Your Driving Sins. As a consequence, they sometimes die when they shouldn't - but the principle is still sound, and a busted-ass bumper should be professionally repaired to professional standards so that:
A) it saves your frame the next time it Dies For Your Driving Sins
B) your insurance company aren't JUSTIFIABLY being dickheads about your next claim. They're going to be unustifiably dickheaded by definition, but please do not give them more ammunition.
