    Default some days you are the bug some days you are the windshield

    Here is a story about a fella that was mauled by a grizz. I say he was one lucky fella.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    When I was in Yellowstone hiking I was carrying a sidearm and bearspray. Some duffus asked me if I had ever had to use it. The conversation went something like....

    "Ever had to use any of that?"
    "No."
    "Do you think you will?"
    "I hope not."
    "That's why I don't carry it."
    "If you find you need it then please don't come running to me. Lead the bear in the other direction."

    He walked off after that.

    Even though I know there are a lot of stupid people out there, I keep getting surprised at just how stupid some people can be.
