ONE WAY TO GET OUT OF A BEAR ATTACK!
At Each Other's Throats: Chase Dellwo is recovering from being attacked by a bear. He and his bother were hunting near Choteau, Montana when the 400-pound male grizzly woke up and attacked. The bear bit Chase's leg as he tossed him in the air.
Chase tells the Great Falls Tribune: "He let go, but he was still on top of me roaring the loudest roar I have ever heard. I remembered an article that my grandmother gave me a long time ago that said large animals have bad gag reflexes. So I shoved my right arm down his throat."
The bear fled.
Man Nails World Record: Shridhar Chillal, of Pune, India, has set a new world record for the world's longest fingernails. He hasn’t cut them in over 60 years.
Chillal says his thumbnail is over six feet long. “I can’t move much, so every half an hour or so I wake up and move my hand to the other side of the bed. Finding a job was also difficult, as no one was ready to employ me.
When I am on my travels, people will recognize me as a Guinness World Records title holder. Now that I am 78 years old, my nails have become much more delicate due to my age, so my wish is to preserve these nails in a museum.”

Finally a Video Game Where Death Means Death!
A new video game is generating quite a buzz in the gamer community and will definitely separate the men from the boys so to speak. If you get killed while playing Upsilon Circuit, you can never play again. While in most video games, death is little more than a temporary setback, Upsilon Circuit's "perma-permadeath," changes everything. Basically two teams of four players each navigate their way through obstacles and enemies, while being observed in live time by online spectators at the game's website or through streaming services such as Twitch. Those spectators can pay to help the players or sic evils upon them, a la the Hunger Games. "We're monetizing trolling," says co-creator Calvin Goble of the Robot Loves Kitty studio. Once a player dies, a spectator is randomly selected to replace him. Goble says, "What I'm hoping happens is that the experience evolves and that the people who live longest will respect their one life, be more cautious and careful." No date yet on when the game will start. (Wired)
Three Cheers for Pee-Repelling Paint!
San Francisco's experiment with pee-repelling paint is working out so well that the city says it will expand the trial in an attempt to prevent further public urination. Since treating nine of its walls with a liquid-repelling coating that causes urine to bounce back at anyone seeking relief, the incidences of peeing on walls is way down. We know this because the city has been sending one unfortunate individual to smell the city's walls and look for moist areas. "So far so good," says Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru. "We have had a daily monitoring program, and it seems to be 95% successful." Once the program's trial period wraps in December, city officials will review the effectiveness of the paint, which has worked "really well" in Hamburg, Germany, says Nuru. (San Francisco Chronicle
