    Default Bear Encounters

    I've had a few.

    This one isn't mine, but it's an interesting display of typical black bear behavior (the ones who don't run at first sight of a human that is).

    I'm at 4-6 by now.

    Most were harmless. One was scary but went just fine.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I live in Colorado and have gone camping in the mountains a number of times. My sister lives in Crested Butte, right next to a little stretch they call "bear alley" (every trash can in that town is bear-proof). As a result, I've seen/been fairly close to wild bears a few times. Never felt endangered. I don't have any friends who have stories of feeling endangered by bears either (that I know of).

    Hell, despite my sister's town being a hotspot for both bears and drunk ski bums stumbling home in the dead of night (including me once or twice: a few drinks goes a very long way at that altitude), there hasn't been a bear attack in many years, maybe decades (not counting the occasional pet). They're generally just considered a nuisance, not a threat.

    Every so often one wanders down to Boulder or even the areas surrounding Denver as well.

    I had one up near Mammoth.

    Thing was straight frolicking thru the snow like a giddy fucking child.

    All of a sudden it stops, about 25 ft from me, at the bank of a little stream.

    Didn't even know I was there til it heard the velcro from my leatherman, and then it bolted.

    On both a related and unrelated note, I've always found dancing bear videos hilarious:
