Bear Charges Into New Jersey Elementary School (Video)

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

And now, here is video of a bear charging into an elementary school in New Jersey.

Quote of the moment from Ogdensburg Elementary School custodian Earl Hornyak, who chased the bear cub through the halls before it chowed down on some math books — “Then I see a bear, running down the hallway…”

Those amazing animals. All they want is an education.

Seriously though, this would be pretty freaky, right? A bear in your kids’ elementary school? And how not fun would it be to be the administrator who has to field calls from parents? Oy + vey = this.

Then again, maybe this isn’t an unusual event. According to the CBS News report, Ogdensburg is in “bear country” and the kids are taught how to handle the furry creatures; they even carry “bear horns.” A commenter on YouTube wrote, “I’m from Ogdensburg and don’t know anyone who carries a bear horn… lol just saying.” So who knows. Still, the community is clearly bear aware.

For some reason I find it amusing that the bear cub ate math books. I think this is a sign that I’m immature.

Angry Wife 2 for Android (No, Seriously)

Haven’t played this Android app, or its predecessor, which was presumably called Angry Wife. Unless this is a Mormon-themed game where you have 2 wives. We doubt it.

According to the description, this game actually features a wife throwing dishes at her husband. She’s mad at him for drinking too much and being a hero. Or something like that.

Here’s how the development meeting probably went: “Hey guys. I have an idea. What if they had smartphones in the 1950’s?”

Why Are We Still Debating The Benefits of Bilingualism?

Speaking Klingon does not count as a second language.

I’m not going to bother reading this New York Times essay titled The Benefits of Bilingualism.

Why not? First of all, I’m busy. Second, I’d rather write this post and I really am kinda busy right now. Third, and most important, I truly cannot believe that there are people in the world who don’t understand that it is a good idea to know how to speak more than one language. (And Klingon doesn’t count. Sorry.) Read more »
