I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    Is the bear with the LAPD?

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    He could have flossed first.

  4. Peter says:

    That’s probably the most disturbing video involving bears and explicit oral action that I’ve ever seen.

    Mr. (Mrs?) bear at the end catching a salmon was awesome. *Bound*

  6. headcode says:

    I can’t be the only one that thought of “Alien” while watching that.

  7. He has pretty good teeth.

    (Or she. I assume the number of female camera-eating grizzly bears is comparable to the number of male camera-eating grizzly bears.)

  8. Finnagain says:

    Maybe next time bring the non-salmon-flavored camera? And yes, the second part of the footage was really great.

  9. Matt says:

    I’ll admit it. When I saw the video started with the bear eating the camera, but was more than a few seconds long, I expected the middle to be dark and the end to be a brief drop to the ground from the hindquarters of a bear.

    And then we’d finally have INCONTROVERTIBLE VIDEO EVIDENCE about whether bears shit in the woods!

    Another million years and it could have been them instead of us.

       If we had their attitudes in our bodies, man, we’d be awesome.

        Really, I’d go the other way ’round myself. I’m already a human-sized ravenous eating machine. The strength and terrifying stabby claws could only be a bonus.

        A culture built around sleeping one-fourth of the year would be kind of interesting, though.

    Reminds me of this – Alison Mosshart eating a punter’s cellphone while he was videoing the Dead Weather’s performance.  The change from hearing the song through the PA to hearing the cellphone owner screaming into the cellphone mike is quite profound. (About 2:00 to 2:36 into the clip.)

    I gotta hand it to GoPro… They are masters of viral marketing. Every schlub with a blog can’t resist passing on one of their videos.

    Poor thing must have been crazy hungry to try chew camera off.
