Susan:

You have to quit dating those "California Sensitive Guys" who always consider the other sides take on things.

I think the male of all species is inclined to try for the last show of power whether winning or losing a fight because I believe it is part of the genetic makeup allowing the strong to survive so that the species continues.

Besides, if it wasn't for all us "macho halfwits", there would be no California and therefore no sensitive guys in the United States.

I have to think about that for a minute, Bountyhunter! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Actually, most of the guys I know tend to be heavy on what women call "testosterone intelligence":

They all hunt, but I wouldn't want to be in the same county when they are.

They are champions of hot loads... in town, esp. (& hollow points are for sissies).

When asked what happens to bullets that miss, they give me a blank look. I guess they use projectiles that evaporate.

One guy went after a bear with just a chunk of firewood as a weapon.

But I must admit, the nearly-local Darwin Award-Winner who is my favorite of all time is the guy that decided to rob a GUN SHOP here in WA, a state that probably has more CC permits than any other US state (the rest of the pop. don't have permits).

He parked nearby, & had to walk around a black-&-white PATROL CAR parked at the front door. When he entered, he saw the UNIFORMED OFFICER leaning on the counter, drinking coffee and chatting with the shop owner. Serveral other people were browsing the shop.

The DAW then pulled out his weapon, fired a couple of rounds in the ceiling and yelled "This is a holdup!"

The officer & the shop owner apparently fired at the same time. Every customer instantly had his/her weapon out, covering the officer & shop owner, but held their fire.

If it wasn't for guys, there wouldn't be this kind of entertainment to admire! There wouldn't be any "Scariest Police Chasees" & other whacko video TV programs, and the news would be nothing but social events.

But, in all fairness, I must admit that when I first found this site and started going through the past threads, I was astounded at the intelligence and knowledge of the people here which are, obviously, mostly guys.

So, keep it up -- you're doing good!

Sue

Afirmative, Roger, 10-4, loud and clear. I always knew we provided entertainment for the fairer sex. I just never knew to what extent before now. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Good Points fellos about not going after the Bear for Pure Revenge, etc.

But some Food for Thought concerning the other side of things too.

Which are, -What if the Bear shud again change it's mind!? To again go back on the Attack!?

Additionally, the Bear knows his initial victim is wounded. He (or She) could wait things out from nearby, -or move in to try to more actively Finish his Victim Off!

This Bear Victim may have been Reacting Rationally, -and Not so Rashly. [color:"black"] [/color] [email]brian[/email]

>>What if the Bear shud again change it's mind!? To again go back on the Attack!?

Why would it do that? A bear will only attack a human for one of two reasons - it's defending itself or its young against a perceived threat, or it's looking for an easy meal. If it thinks you're a threat, then attacking it is going to tick it off big time. If it's looking for a meal, then it probably thinks you're dead and pointing out its mistake is not the wisest move.

>>Additionally, the Bear knows his initial victim is wounded. He (or She) could wait things out from nearby, -or move in to try to more actively Finish his Victim Off!

Bears don't much care whether you're wounded or not. If it thinks you're wounded, that's only a good reason to move in and finish the job. If it wants to finish you off, it'll just walk in and do it.

Black bears that kill humans for food (rare, but it does happen) will usually treat them like any other animal they kill - they'll drag it around in the dirt, then leave it for a couple of days until it gets nice and gamy and softer to chew. Often, they'll bite a chunk out of the buttocks to tide them over. As far as I'm aware, there's only ever been one recorded case where a grizzly killed a human for food - all the other attacks have been because the human startled the grizz, got between a mother and her cubs, or was just too plain stupid to realize the bear was getting upset with them. And even in that one case, the victim was an amateur nature photographer who was probably taking care not to make a noise - the last thing you want to do in grizzly bear territory, since it greatly increases the risk of surprising one.

Well Folks:

It has come to the head known as "litigation".

I read on the web today that someone is sueing a school district for allowing young children to play "Dodgeball" (Also known as "War", "Elimination", and probably a host of other names).

It seems an 8 year old girl was playing "Dodgeball" in the school gym, fell down and broke her elbow.

Next thing you know, all tree houses will be outlawed, and no one will be allowed to have trees higher than 3 feet tall on their property because a heck of a lot more kids and adults get hurt falling out of trees than playing "Dodgeball".

When will this insanity end?
