    Man survives bear attack with small caliber pistol

    "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain."

    I'm horrified. Honestly, I could never do something like that. This is why I only bring poor runners with me when I go hiking

    All it takes is a knife. That is especially useful when SCUBA diving near sharks.

    Ha-ha - pragmatism at its best. The only problem with this methodology is that after this happens a couple of times, you can't find anyone that will go out in the woods with you anymore. ;-)

    We camped in areas where it wasn't a matter whether you would see any bears, it was a matter of how many and when. We took many precautions with food, etc. But, my Ex one day asked me why I didn't seem real concerned about the bears.... and I told her , "because I can run alot faster than you can". I could see this look on her face like the wheels were turning in her brain.... and she seemed to be thinking that one over all day.

    When I read the title I thought the bear had a small caliber pistol.

    So is that why she is your Ex?

    You could have had a save if you had immediately added "After all, honey, your meaner than any old bear. My money would be on you."

    On second thought, that may not have helped.

    Or did she become 'the ex' the next day, when she got eaten?
