Footage Of A Bear Waking Up From Hibernation And Leaving Its Den

May 5, 2017

This is the nature-cam footage captured by Bernie Barringer of a one-eyed American black bear (one-eyed is not part of the species name, it just lost an eye in a fight with another bear) waking after months of hibernation, and slowing leaving its den. It takes almost a full month for that sleepy bastard to finally wake up for good! Obviously, that reminds me a lot of myself. It takes me almost a full month just to get out of bed every morning, which may explain why my FitBit says I've only been alive five days so far this year. *shrug* I just love sleeping so much. If I could be any superhero, you know who I'd be? "Superman?" Rip Van Winkle. "Rip Van Winkle is not a superhero." Well he is to me.

Keep going for the video (be sure to play with volume for commentary) while I plan for my daily siesta in a men's bathroom stall.

Thanks to cnasty, who dreams of sleeping for months at a time. Dreaming of sleep -- I do that too!

    They kind of did - they had this promotion to weed out the forests most hated people - hipsters. They had a scavenger hunt map to the only cave in the world that naturally created it's own free wifi and it was inhabited by vegan, transgender and gender fluid bears. The ones that went out in search of it were eaten. So win/win.

    According to Rule 34 of the internet, if it exists there is porn of it. So... now I want to see porn of vegan transgender/gender-fluid bears.

    Still, not the sickest thing I've ever gone searching for.
