While walking down the sidewalk texting, you meet a Bear. What do you do?

Sometimes the news is exciting, and sometimes it's somber. Other times it can get people riled up, while occasionally it makes us laugh. This next story falls into that last category. Basically this piece exemplifies how much we have come to rely upon, and become enamored by, technology to such a degree that we become distracted by it, potentially to our detriment.

"Enter a Bear" - stage left - to remind us we still live in a real world. Luckily, in this instance, only hilarity ensues at about the .25 mark in the video.

Update: The previous video was taken down by the OG user, but I found another to put in its place. Enjoy!

To be fair, on most days he could probably be certain there is NOT a bear standing in his driveway! I do love how the bear just strolls along though.

He's lucky he didn't trigger the bear's hunter instinct by running from it.

That does give fuel to the don't text while walking camp, does it not?

This is a more clear version, with a little more humor: [video=youtube;KMh10A31464]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KMh10A31464[/video]

You don't have to out run the bear... you just have to out run your friends. And it will have to be a very, very good friend for me not to trip them

I would probably run as quick as possible as well. Screw standing still!
