Rider Killed by Cougar in Washington State
@taquitos: but to give it peace from my side, no you don’t educate inner chimp, you train it, there’s a big difference. You can also train it to shut himself up and let the frontal lobe do the work depending on a situation. Like not jumping into conclusions and judging people on how they acted in extreme situations. Honestly, trying to be too smart about a cougar attack is not the best thing to do. Trust me. Have a nice day ;)

@taquitos: what I meant was: without training, or at least without being around nature a lot, seeing things, like hunters or wardens would, like humans just 3-4 generations away would, you are highly porbably not the one who decides whether to fight or flight. Your inner chimp does. A city chimp like mine, just doesn’t have enough software for this kind of computation to go fight consistently. For fks sake my inner chimp goes rampant in first hand confrontation with a woman that sleeps next to me and I have 50/50 success rate at best. What I mean is I would not judge anyones reaction in such situation. Look around in areas of potential danger, don’t ride alone, don’t clip in, don’t wear 5.10s, wear Pumas. It’s not about outrunning a mountain lion, it’s about outrunning your friends

@taquitos: bullshit, it doesn’t matter what you prepare yourself mentally for. The only thing you can do is watch your bacck, look around in areas you may expect them to be. Then you can maybe prepare yourself mentally a bit if you have spotted one stalking you. Even then if it charges its your genes. Your fight or flight reflex takes over, completely, your frontal lobe checks out - it’s science. Unless off course you are trained, which is completely unrealistic in case of general population. Then you may get chimp part of your brain to be much more likely to go fight instead of flight.

@WasatchEnduro: that’s one of the best arse grown assumptions on this page ever, like 12 year olds describing how would they kick a bad guy in the alley if he was holding a knife. I Come upon a moose 2-3 times a year and although I have a strategy of action put in my head in case they charge, I always find myself stunned for the first few moments. But I didn’t serve in special forces. My uncle who spent half of his life in the woods, told me stories about meeting wild bores a few times and one of the last times when he stumbled upon the cubs in tall grass, he panicked and run as if his arse was on fire. And you are sure about your reaction taking place within 1-3 seconds between seeing a mountain lion charging at you and it being on your head. Come on... big wheels roll faster but are less playful

@AMGoran: I don't know what to say to this... that I'm sorry for you? That it will be better in 10 years? The angst will be gone but you have to go through the pain? I hope you are using the possibility and the privilege of having a lot of inconsequential sex? instead of just wanking to Zara Larsson? I don't know... be well

jaame - you do all that in a week? Did you get a hold of a container filled with euphedrin pills? Your doc overprescribing Ritalin? How the fk do you regenerate? Football 5 times a week alone would kill most 30 year olds. I'm impressed and curious. And please send me some of that stuff.

@Fix-the-Spade: no I didn't, but if you expect racers to stop and wait for someone who stumbled without a rule being written, you should get fkd, honestly. And writing such rule would be even dumber. Hey, how about slipping all this podium mess and giving everyone participation trophees?! Fkng entitled beigist snowflakes. Your parents set you up for failure. Your parents suck. If you fell, got a mechanical, guess what, sht happens! Nobody cares who's fault is it, the result is: you. are. not. winning. deal with it. I'm angry, I'm fkng angry...
