Insane in the membrane
Plenty insane
Got no brain

We watched Grizzly Man tonight.

Timothy Treadwell was a guy who lived among grizzlies in Alaska. It appears he thought the bears were people in furry bear suits. He thought he was "guarding" and "protecting" the bears.

He lived among the bears (in violation of many Park Service rules... such as coming within 100 feet of the bears). They became habituated to his presence. He often got close enough to actually touch the 600 pound bears.

And one of them got tired of his shit and ate him.

The only true tragedy is that the bear that ate him and his girlfriend was shot by park service employees.

If I was a Katmai Grizzly, I would have taken his head off with one swipe.
