That's interesting. I was under the assumption that it was best not to attract attention to yourself. So apparently, it's just the opposite. I was concerned about my headlamp essentially screaming "here's dinner right over here; come and get it". I'm sure it's not as good as the bells though since even the headlamp could take them by surprise.

You are statistically safer operating under the assumption that they're more scared of you than you are of them, and that they will therefore want to be long gone if they hear you coming. When they attack it's because you startled them and they were either defending themselves or saw you running and instinct kicked in and they ate you before they had a chance to realize that you're not food.

There are the exceptions where this is not the case, but if you're playing the odds you just have to hope that it's not one of those exceptions you come across and put on the proverbial bells Big Grin

Yes, why?

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

So, I haven't worked out in two days, I'm horrible. Weeping

But, tomorrow the gym! I think I've been run down this week, had a couple of nights of weird sleep, so glad the weekend is here.

Be true to yourself. Heart

It's a joke... You don't... generally find good ideas for avoiding bears in jokes whose main premise is people getting eaten by bears.

The best way to avoid getting eaten by bears is to eat the bears Big Grin

They don't have long distance endurance, but at short distances they can outrun a race horse. They're also quite adept at navigating hills and obstacles without getting slowed down. I wouldn't suggest testing your luck Tongue

Oh, LOL, I guess that one went over my head. Blush

RE: Atheists who work out
5 miles today, pretty steady pace run. I haven't been timing my pace for a while, unless I'm working on speed. It is distracting I've found, and takes away the fun of running sometimes. Then, did about 30 minutes of light strength training afterwards. Tomorrow, more of an intense gym CF workout planned.

There's no animals to worry about at the gym, so that's always a plus.

Be true to yourself. Heart
