    A couple on a cabin holiday at Spitsbergen was rather rattled when a 305 kg male polar bear sought to join them inside by pushing through the window. They had already sent of several warning shots (that is usually enough to make a bear understand he isn't welcome), but this particular bear was persistent. Unfortunately, they had to shoot him. :frown:

    What's next? Do people over there eat bear meat?

    I read in wall street journal that Europe is having a strong bear market.

    Actually, in our current natural household economy, owning bee-hives has become the mark of nobility, because they can then pay their bear guards.:smile:
