Warning: Polar bears do NOT like playing patty-cake

April 12, 2009

The German woman below thought a polar bear at the Berlin Zoo needed a hug. So, she hopped a fence, a “prickly hedge”, and a wall to then jump into the polar bears’ enclosure. She proceeded to swim toward the polar bear when the polar bear did what polar bears do: mauled a weaker, slower potential threat/source of food. Can we already crown the 2009 Idiot of the Year? Huh? Can we?  The woman was pulled out by Berlin Zoo personnel and she remains hospitalized.  Check out the pics and video below.

Darwin lets one slip by: Man plays chicken with cars on highway….in his underwear…and lives.

(this pic. has nothing to do with the story, I just imagined someone that might play chicken with cars might have a similar haircut. That and it’s funny)

SYDNEY (Reuters) – An Australian man’s dare went horribly wrong when he tried to play chicken with cars on a freeway wearing only his underwear. The 18 year old was critically injured after being hit by a four-wheel drive on a freeway in the southern city of Melbourne in the early hours of Wednesday, police said in a statement.

“Police are dismayed at the utter stupidity of a man who decided to play chicken on the Tullamarine Freeway,” the statement said.

“It was lucky nobody was killed as a result and police couldn’t believe anybody would be foolish enough to take such grave risks with their personal safety and that of other road users.” The driver and passenger in the car were unhurt, though the vehicle was a write-off.
