Boy left alone in bear-infested woods as punishment by dad found alive and unharmed

I think the "bear-infested" woods is a big exaggeration by the media. From other articles, they say that the big forrest was home to some bears, that rarely attack humans.
I hate it when the media does stuff like that. Hypothermia and falling accidents kills way, way more people lost in the woods than bears.
I bet they would call the woods around my house, "predator infested" because a couple of wolves and and a few lynx have killed some sheep here over the last year.



Lynx? You have kitties in your back yard?   :dd:

Yes.
They are very shy though. I have only seen one in the wild once.
Beautiful animals!

We have them also in the woods around here, tho I haven't seen one live yet. Hunters seem to want to kill all of them, as well as wolves... Why is completely beyond me, because the hunters wouldn't eat them anyways...

And I agree, Lynx is a magnificent beast :tu:

Obviously, someone did not follow orders as :

“They are on no account to be allowed to fall into the hands of the enemy and are to be destroyed by fire on conclusion of the operation.”

I have long admired the German sense of humour and appreciated their skill at getting it across in the English language. This made me laugh:

Germany’s Bild newspaper promised on Thursday that Germans would not hog hotel sunloungers and would ditch their goalkeeper for the next penalty shootout, playing on friendly stereotypes in a last-ditch plea to Britons to stay in the European Union.

“Dear Brits, if you remain in the EU ... then we ourselves will recognise the Wembley goal,” Bild declared above a picture of Geoff Hurst’s controversial extra-time goal in the 1966 World Cup Final, when the English soccer team beat West Germany.

Touching on decades of rivalry on the soccer pitch, the paper said Germany would go without its goalkeeper in the next penalty shootout between England and Germany.

Germany is considered by English soccer fans to be their main sporting rival. Germany defeated England in a penalty shootout in the semi-finals of the 1990 World Cup and the semi-finals of the 1996 Euros.

Leaning on decades of jokes between the countries, the mass-selling tabloid promised to put towels on sun loungers to reserve the best spots for Britons by the hotel pool, and to not use suntan lotion out of solidarity with sunburnt Brits.

If Britain were to stay in the EU, Bild also pledged to supply the baddie for every James Bond film, put its clocks back one hour so they were on the same time zone as Britain and introduce an EU guideline that bans froth on beer.

Earlier this month, Germany’s Der Spiegel published a bilingual edition of its weekly magazine in English and German containing a strong appeal for Britons to vote to remain

Brexit won overall, though in Scotland and Northern Ireland most people voted to stay in the EU.

It's going to be interesting!

Cameron's resigned (Osborne next please!) and I would imagine Scotland will push for another referendum to split with the UK.

It's a bad day when you can't celebrate Cameron resigning. >:(

Still, my wife was born in Edinburgh, so there may be a way out for us at least.
