"Swedish man scares off brown bear"
Saw that one yesterday. The bear's reaction reminds me of Skurka's encounter where he threw a trekking pole at one. That said, this guy (IMO) was asking for it and just got lucky. He was...

Re "At least he died doing what he loved..."
Jeffrey said, "'...died doing what he loved.' Nobody would ever say that they were happy to be swept off the mountain by an avalanche. The headline is, they died. Everyone would take a...

"Foot shape getting wierd ..."
