Yea bad luck to run into a mother. Otherwise, If you act intelligently like that guy did (don't run and never turn your back on it) its not likely to attack.

While I haven't heard of any local attacks there have been a lot of recent sightings in the area I am at. Weird thing is they've been in suburban neighborhoods not hiking trails. One was found in a parking garage near the downtown area too.

I had always thought they were much more elusive but there's at least one local one that isn't as scared of people as it should be.
I wonder if that has something to do with the fires?

These sightings were before the recent string and, in the past, haven't been exclusive to fire season but I suppose that is still be a part of larger habitat change/ reduction.

I know they're around but normally sightings are when they're caught them on motion activated cameras. Coming up on someone's property at night.


I've never seen one in the wild but I did see two at the Oakland Zoo. They were actually much bigger and more intimidating in person than I thought.

That thing could definitely kill a person with ease.

Not a fan of DM but they had the best article.

All you need to do is get some of these people in the right situation and their true colours come out. They don't care about diversity, they want to improve the lives of people who look just like them.

Humans really are stupid fucking creatures.
I don’t understand why there’s so many anti Semitic black people out there.

a football player for the eagles posted some retarded anti semitic stuff on Instagram and got an outpouring of support from other black athletes and celebrities. Ridiculous.

There's a lot that goes into that.

Even this event recently. Plenty of videos of BLM protesters getting fucked by police. Then when the Orthodox Jews start burning masks in the street, all of a sudden "we can't do anything about it." As you can imagine that discrepancy creates a lot of anger, for example.

This immediately comes to mind too

I just realized Lou Reed's New York was released as a deluxe edition a couple weeks ago -- as a result of your post. :D :tup:

Its funny how often these types get revealed as actually being the most intolerant and hate filled people.

But if you're a fat rights activist its probably a requirement to be a fucking idiot. someone who goes through life driven by your insecurities which you lack the intelligence and maturity to deal with in a healthy way.

Her comments at the end of that article on how she has many great conversations over the years with her Jewish friends on their culture remind me so much of Zach and him telling us about his great conversations with various minorities that allow him to make racial jokes. :lol2:

Women are "plus size", men are fat.
Nah, they been “taking back” the word fat too. Fat acceptance is just as big in that movement now. I see all sorts of these ninnies referring to themselves as “fat” now and saying it should be a source of pride. Lol

I would think having friends of a different race would mean you have less reason to make racist comments against them. :boh:

Saying I have no friends of that race and pleading ignorance seems like a better excuse.

You don’t think her many Jewish friends appreciate her super clever and witty “Auschwitz gas chamber music, lmao” post? :shifty:

I've just read the article:
"Ms Yeboah wrote: 'There have been bigger and more horrific genocides. They happened to brown people, though, so I guess it doesn't matter, huh?'"

It always has to be a contest :sergio:
The Holocaust seems to trigger a lot of these folks whose identity is totally wrapped up in victimhood. It makes them feel inferior desperate to reassert their status as top tier victim.

I cringe a little every time I read the words "body positivity".
It's often coming from some big momma type as well. Amazing how often you can pair one with the other for extra protection from criticism.

Yeah it's great that it helps you feel better about yourself but you're still decreasing your quality of life whilst increasing risks to your health.

The other thing to point out is that slavery was certainly horrific and the numbers are considerably higher than even the WWII camps, but it wasn't genocide.

Idk. its helping them feel better about themselves in the same way giving an alcoholic a free night of drinking is.

tbf i've never been fat but I imagine longterm depression goes hand in hand with it.
