    I wonder if he had to make a trip to the porta-potty after that.

    The first time, those cars were moving at a pretty good clip.
    But it looks like they slowed down the last time around...I guess they knew he was there by then.

    Not a Darwin winner... he got the shot and lived.

    Now this guy IS a Darwin winner...

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...onal-park.html
    A San Diego man was killed by a grizzly Friday at Denali National Park in Alaska, the first fatal bear attack in the park's history.

    Rangers told reporters that Richard White, 49, photographed the animal for eight minutes Friday before the attack.

    He came within 50 yards of the bear, far closer than the quarter-mile of separation required by park rules, officials said.

    A state trooper shot and killed the male bear on Saturday. Investigators examined the bear’s stomach contents, looked at White’s photos and used other tests Saturday evening to confirm that it was the animal that killed White.
    Unfortunately this idiot's close contact with the bear caused officials to also kill the bear.

    So while he is a Darwin winner, he also helped reduce the number of an endangered species.

    Which means that they tied. The bear also did something that got it prematurely removed from the genetic code, though we don't know if the bear had previously reproduced.

    No tie. It acted like a bear.


    With 7 billion plus, humans are not endangered.
