Doesn't that look suspiciously like Nutsack News?
2006-02-17 04:33:38 PM  
Amazing. Yes, that mom deserves a medal for jumping a polar bear or a psych exam at least.
2006-02-17 05:15:20 PM  
Man, what kind of equipment he have? Hunter jumping in there like that, pulling all the aggro off the main tank. Lucky they didn't wipe.
2006-02-17 05:30:09 PM  
Does a bear shiat in the woods?

Not polar bears
2006-02-17 07:06:16 PM  
This sucks. We have enough kids. We need more polar bears.
2006-02-17 07:25:45 PM  
i got that right away.
2006-02-17 07:48:41 PM  
Gamma rays!!!!
2006-02-17 07:49:47 PM  
Why didn't they just feign death? That woulda wiped the aggro completely.

BadSpeller: Man, what kind of equipment he have? Hunter jumping in there like that, pulling all the aggro off the main tank. Lucky they didn't wipe.

I got that right away as well. This is one of those moments when I am both incredibly proud and greatly ashamed.
2006-02-17 07:50:19 PM  
that bitach got it all wrong

the polar bear was just trying to tell the kids that he had some klondike bars in the back of his van if they wanted some. I tell you, try to do one nice thing and all that happens if you get shot by some psycho woman

There's a joke in there somewhere about Popeye, a can of spinach, and what the Inuit would use in place of spinach...

/walrus testicles?
// nuthin'
2006-02-17 07:51:00 PM  
Poor bear, courageous woman, kids are safe, all is well.

That is all.

2006-02-17 07:52:11 PM  
False reporting. The woman beat up the bear for taking her cloudsong
2006-02-17 07:52:20 PM  
speaking of Nutsacks, that Woman has bigger balls than the entire front line of the Pittsburg Steelers...combined

Speaker Hastert how big were they?
2006-02-17 07:52:26 PM  
I heard a story in the news a long time ago about a guy who lifted a HELICOPTER off of his friend's broken leg, and pulled him to safety with his other hand. And yes, you're correct... That does mean he lifted a helicopter with one hand. That was an awesome video.

/Mama, I want some titty.
2006-02-17 07:52:46 PM  
<fnorgby>I fought a grizzly bear for a salmon once. You may have seen the commercial.

True story.

2006-02-17 07:54:50 PM  
Global warming = Polar bears starving (pops) = dead bear from story = Bush's fault (pops)
2006-02-17 07:54:55 PM  
You know, I'm thinking she could've only been a 3rd or 4th level character at the time... how much experience would that be for a single encounter? Does she get extra xp for staying in-character?
2006-02-17 07:55:58 PM  
Ainalik? That's not a good last name...
2006-02-17 07:56:05 PM  
I heard a story in the news a short time ago about a woman who tackled a polar bear to protect her kids. You may have read the same article.

she could have just fired up aspect of the cheetah and kited it around
2006-02-17 07:58:03 PM  
This "fight or flight" response must be investigated.
2006-02-17 07:59:14 PM  
It's Nanook of the North
2006-02-17 08:00:01 PM  
It's amazing what the fight-or-flight reflex can do in humans.

I mean just by triggering some chemicals to be released by some glands, your brain causes you to literally gain an exponential increase in things like strength, speed, stamina and pain threshold, among others.

It's bizarre and amazing.
2006-02-17 08:00:45 PM  
7of7: Doesn't that look suspiciously like Nutsack News?

My first thought exactly
2006-02-17 08:02:11 PM  
2006-02-17 08:02:49 PM  
B with a capital b, S. See how the reporter tried to "scientifically explain" it at the end? Well, folks, I'm tellin COULD happen! Fight or flight!

And how wasn't she shot? One half-swing by furry and white ends her life.
2006-02-17 08:03:23 PM  
Every parent should be willing do this.

If you wouldn't, do the world a favor and don't be a parent.
2006-02-17 08:03:35 PM  
Vulcanon: she could have just fired up aspect of the cheetah and kited it around

Where was the enraged white tiger pet?
2006-02-17 08:04:24 PM  
What, no PETA tards crying crocodile tears for the poor bear?
2006-02-17 08:05:07 PM  
Jesus, when she tells you to eat your veggies, you farking better get right to it.
2006-02-17 08:05:11 PM

Steven Colbert is happy
2006-02-17 08:07:23 PM

Wanted for questioning!

"Let's face it: bears are scary. And they want our honey."
2006-02-17 08:09:24 PM  
It's coming right for us!
2006-02-17 08:11:53 PM  

Every parent should be willing do this.
If you wouldn't, do the world a favor and don't be a parent.


However, the 'journalist' should have been left to the attentions of the bear.
2006-02-17 08:14:19 PM  
"attentions" = "intimate relations" ?
2006-02-17 08:15:25 PM  
I've done some stupid (with two O no less) crap in my time.

Wrestle polar bear? Nope, not even after a 5th of Yager and case of Heiney. Nope, not even close.

Kudos to the mom though, I'm just shocked she can walk with that ginormous brass pair swinging between her thighs.

Damn, just damn. No, really, a farking POLAR BEAR. Wow.
2006-02-17 08:16:33 PM

Im kind of dissapointed this image doesnt show the wood chipper
2006-02-17 08:21:05 PM  
This eyewitness told police that when she saw Angyiou in front of the youth centre trying to kick the bear, she screamed polar bear!

Whoa!!! It IS different up there. When we were playing street hockey, the worst thing we had to call out was "CAR!!!"


2006-02-17 08:23:23 PM  
Daaamn, them crazy snowstompin' canucks sure know how to whallop on a polar bear's biatch ass.
2006-02-17 08:23:25 PM  
It was the Coke that made the bear crazy, damn junkies.
2006-02-17 08:24:06 PM  
so can we gut her and her family if they were to 'eye' us?

I'm all for protecting my son and am admittedly over-protective, hoever, if an animal is simply 'eyeing' that is not exactly a 'fight' trigger, especially if 'flight' was still an option. How about go the fark inside and call the authorities? or walk the fark away?

Clearly this lady works for Pepsi.
2006-02-17 08:24:34 PM  

Man, what kind of equipment he have? Hunter jumping in there like that, pulling all the aggro off the main tank. Lucky they didn't wipe.

I partly got that. I understood all the terms except "hunter", which I assume is from WoW. The rest applies to EQ as well, which is my only MMORPG experience, but enough to make me pathetic.
2006-02-17 08:26:25 PM  
Great googly moogly!

Was that woman Miss Trunchbull or something?!
2006-02-17 08:29:46 PM  
Is the "fight or flight" thing proven, or just a myth? It sounds quite intriguing.
2006-02-17 08:32:10 PM  
If that happend in the states, PETA, or some other Damningly Far Left group would be suing everyone involved for taking away that bear's right to live, and blah, blah, blah.

/not thread-jacking
//just speaking d mind.
2006-02-17 08:37:31 PM  
oh sorry deschit i didnt realize you were there as an eyewitness, please tell us more.....
2006-02-17 08:38:32 PM  
This is just another case of humans interfering with animals. The woman should have left the bear alone. She can make more children. She cant make more bears.

She should be put in jail next to Cheney for killing inocent animals who are the children of Gaia, mother earth.

Support the right to arm bears!!
