"Grizzlies, black bears, and even polar bears can attack humans, leading to fatalities. In fact, all bears have the potential to be dangerous when humans get too close or don't respect their space. There are an average of 11 bear attacks in the United States every year, with around half of those being fatal.Oct 5, 2023"

Unlike black bears and grizzlies, polar bears are vicious predators who seem to have few inhibitions about killing humans or anything else that is moving. Polar bears even catch, slaughter and eat small whales. They may arguably be the most formidable killing machine on land in all of nature (excepting humans, I guess.)
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Except the ones that drink Coca-Cola. Those are friendly.

Great quote, I don't know. Useful possibly.

Its just a forum. Nothing here to get obsessed about.

“ The pessimist will never be disappointed”


I don’t know about this one. Seems like some are disappointed if not enough misery is occurring to those around them.

I don't think that is a common trait of pessimists, maybe people with other issues that are also pessimistic.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.
