  1. Teddy Bears Were Invented Because We Forgot That Nature Wants To Kill Us

    "Bears know who they are, but they often don’t know who you are, which is why they kill you." - Mike Birbiglia

    Pretty much everyone has fond memories of a stuffed bear toy they once played with. That's weird when you think about it, because actual bears are vicious animals that will maul you to death. In this TED talk from March, writer Jon Mooallem has some ideas about why we've gotten into the habit of cute-ifying all of our most terrifying predators.

  2. Canadian Mountie Delighted To Find Tumblr’s Cartoons of Her Stopping Crime With Bear Cub Partner

    Bear Time

    Two and a half years ago, Constable Suzanne Bourque was interviewing witnesses about the activity of a too-friendly-for-his-own-good bear cub who'd been pestering visitors at the Terra Nova National park in Newfoundland and Labrador when the bear cub himself showed up. The ensuing pictures were un-bear-ably adorable, but, in the way of things on the internet, ran under the radar for a while until they finally got their chance at becoming internet gold.

  3. Play This Right Now: Fist of Awesome

    Time travel. Punch bears. Save humanity.

    When it comes to video games, we love a bizarre premise. A wacky plot accompanied by odd characters. A time traveling lumberjack who has to stop a "complex interstellar plot to enslave Earth by populating history with homicidal wild animals?" Yeah. That definitely hits the sweet spot.

  4. #FollowFriday: A Bear (@A_Single_Bear)

    #FollowFriday is the feature where we tell you about a great person on Twitter whom you should be following. Okay, well, this week it's not a person. It's more of a bear. But he's a pretty great bear, believe us.

  5. Meet Champa, the First Bear to Undergo Brain Surgery

    Operating on animals is a bit different than putting humans under the knife, due to all kinds of different physiological and even chemical differences. But it's not like it's brain surgery. Y'know, usually. In Laos, a veterinarian recently performed the first ever brain surgery on a bear. Despite her wary -- I daresay resentful-looking -- expression in the photo above, Asiatic black bear Champa is in fact improving after her surgery.

  7. Now Even Alaskan Bears Have Webcams

    The internet has proven time and again that folks are more than willing to watch animals just being animals if given the opportunity. With that in mind, the good people at Katmai National Park in Alaska have partnered with explore.org to bring the Internet to their bears and their bears to the Internet. Due to being so difficult to visit, they've installed four different stations that can be streamed live for your viewing pleasure.

  9. Nearly a Full Minute of a New Scene From Brave Covers Reruns Over Dinner [Video]

    Bear Time

    Disney Pixar has released a 48-second clip from Brave, showing Merida's father Fergus regaling the tale of a confrontation with a bear. Apparently, he has regaled this story many, many, may times. It's a lesson -- every kind of family has had to hear the same family stories every year of their lives. (via Nerd Bastards) Previously in Brave

  10. New Assassin’s Creed 3 In-Game Footage Shows Devastating, Graceful Combat. Also A Bear [Video]

    We've been pretty excited about Assassin's Creed 3 here at Geekosystem. Between its unique setting and totally awesome tomahawk-skull interface, the game seems pretty promising, and this new in-game footage only heightens our anticipation. The combat shown here looks strikingly more balletic and visceral than previous games, and some of the movement has an unprecedented kind of momentum and weight behind it. All that pales in comparison to the bear though. There's a bear. I can't be the only one who thinks video games need more bear fights, can I?
