hmm... someone should give the bear a chainsaw. A bear with a chainsaw, nature's most perfect killing machine

I am glad I live in Florida, we have a nude beach here and do our polor dive at midnight as well.

I am just glad the waters are still in the 70's

I jumped in the Whissahickon (goes through Fairmount Park, if you're from the Philly area you know this creek) with a friend one chilly late october day last year. That was fun.

I take issue with the use of the word "acting" in the headline:

1) It's offenseive to REAL actors everywhere.

2) It assumes those mentioned are NOT, in fact, dumbasses.

friend of mine is a memeber of a polor bear club that jumps into lake erie each year. they use it as an excuse to goto the closest bar afterwards and get shiatfaced.
good enough reason for me..
