He tells KOMO that he was walking in the woods with his dog Abby when he was mauled. “It was just running straight for me, The dog went running by me, and I just had this deja vu. It would whip around, do this 180 and go for my leg, my shoulders, my head, and just come in and bite me again, and I would just try to nail it when it came in. He was definitely after my head. So I was trying to protect everything up here and I was holding onto that stick and that was about the only thing that saved me. I still say it. I’m just getting too old to fight ‘em anymore, to tell you the truth.”

The Ultimate Kickstarter!
In maybe the most Epic Kickstarter proposal ever, Aaron Schlechter is hoping to raise $1.2 Billion on Kickstarter... to buy Kickstarter! When Aaron first launched his kickstarter campaign he only wanted a relatively modest sum of $3,700 because he wanted to name dogs and write a book on the art of dog-naming. But when Kickstarter told him his campaign violated their guidelines, he decided their rules were stupid, and would set out to change them by buying the company. On his campaign page, Aaron wrote: "Kickstarter has informed me that I should focus on the 'book aspect' of my project rather than naming dogs, which-while a noble goal-does not fit within one of our 15 categories." He then explains if he raises the $1.2 Billion, he will buy Kickstarter and amend its rules so that only projects related to the naming of dogs will be allowed on the site. Ahh -- I'd give anything for a life with that much free time!
