i sat on a slug in my garage the other day. that's where i draw the line with wildlife.i might try it with a deer but where do you draw the line?
We just had a kid mauled by a mountain lion here in the San Jose area.
Picked up by the back of the neck and hauled into the woods .
I had a black bear come running down the hill last weekend and in front of my truck(ask SunnyvaleX).
I had to fight the urge to get out and pet him.
Mountain lions are cute.....
No, there's some basic outdoor ethical guidelines that everyone should follow. If you don't understand them them you are part of the problem that gets sh1t closed or access limited. Or someone has to go make a sign because someone was too stupid to calculate some basic logic. Your mentality is exactly why lawsuits involving too hot of coffee result in required warning signs on cups.Well, I think it's cool. Kudos for enjoying that rare moment.
As for the others, live a bit. If you are that worried about every risk in life, you are in for a very dull existence. Don't dare drive your Xterra or put your kids in it. Car accidents are very common and quite dangerous.
It comes down to common sense. The guy getting too close to 2000lb buffalo for a picture is an idiot for a few reasons that I'm sure are obvious to everyone. The deer in those pics is obviously used to humans and isn't looking to make a meal out of small kid or protect anything. Is it a foolproof move to let them get so close? No, but the neighbors dog is more likely to hurt the kid than that deer is, statistically.
The hot cup of coffee thing is because people tried to make money off burning themselves. They would have been angry if they got cold or even warm coffee but when the hot coffee they wanted burns them its someone else's fault.
And you still don't see everyone running out and selling their cars to buy planes haha. It just further proves the point that you can't live life scared of everything and that every situation calls for a different amount of caution and skepticism. ccasion5:Also more likely to die in a car crash, then a plane crash
