Do you guys have nothing better to do than a hi-jack a thread?

Get AOL or Yahoo and message each other. Everytime I try and read a thread you guys ramble about stupid stuff and don't stay on topic. There is no need for that. If you can't stay on topic, then don't reply.

Is it that hard?

OK, here's my polar bear story.

In May 1994 some Australian tourists visited the Anchorage Zoo in Alaska. One woman got too close to the polar bear cage where Nuka (female) and Binky (male) lived. Binky bit her arm off and it was an international story. Polar bears are known to be mean and attack things that move, so it's not like they have to be provoked very much. They're all about survival in the Arctic north. Let's zoom ahead to August 1994 and the first day of school. Two high school boys decided to skip school and drink alcohol that day. They paid a visit to the zoo and decided it would be cool to swim in Binky's water pool. They jumped the first little fence and climbed the second fence to enter the realm of Binky. I don't know what happened to one boy, but the other one left the bear cage that day minus his male anatomy. When I heard this, I said, "I HAVE to go see Binky." I did go to the zoo one day right before I moved, but I was severely disappointed. I didn't care that Binky was a little dirty compared to Nuka, but was very disappointed that he just layed around. He wouldn't hardly move at all.

The moral of the story is, "Don't mess with polar bears!":D

Since the original topic of this thread was about bear attacks, did any of ya'll catch "Grizzly Man" on the Discovery Channel. I have to say, the footage of Treadwell, who fancied himself a "protector" of Alaksa's Kodiak Bears (the largest in the world, btw), made for a truly compelling film. He really belived he had a special relationship with them, and that they would not harm him. I can't go so far as to say that "He got what he deserved" (if you didn't see the film, Tim Treadwell and his girlfriend were killed and partially eaten by a bear), but I will say that any competely rational person could have seen the ultimate end to his actions. What were your thoughts on the flick. It was one of the better movies I have watched this year, and it was a documentary.

Treadwell was a person with an addictive personality. He had earlier struggled with alcohol, and came to view his "work" with the bears as sort of his redemption for his earlier life.

Despite the Park Service's insistence that poaching of bears on Kodiak Island and in Alaska was not a problem, Treadwell believed that his presence was needed during the summer to protect the bears from phantom poachers. He claimed to be "studying" the bears and often landed gigs as an educational speaker when he wasn't in Alaska. Nevertheless, most serious researchers considered his "studies" to consist mostly of emotional, romaniticized views of bears and nature in general. He gave "his" bears names like "Mr. Chocalate" and "Sergeant", and repeatedly violated park restrictions to maintain a distance of 100 yds from bears. He did, however, manage to live about 7 summers with the bears and avoid being killed.

Most of the movie consists of his own footage, as he was preparing his own film about his "work". He did capture some spectacular nature footage. Still, I don't know what to think of him. Like I said, nobody "deserves" to be mauled and eaten by a bear, but I can't see any other way his actions could end.
