(Case in > point, a bear will maul you whether or not you are > a Level I, Level II, or Level III CFA) Not entirely true. I was recently hiking through the woods and while I usually whistle “Eye of the Tiger” when I hike (I’m told this tricks the bears into thinking that Sly Stallone is coming and they run away), on that particular day I was trying to perfect my wounded animal yelps. I must have done a pretty good job, because after about 45 minutes a rather large bear emerged from the brush looking hungry. He seemed a bit confused at first, as he was expecting a wounded black-tailed jackrabbit, but then he seemed really pissed when he realized that it was me pretending to be a wounded black-tailed jackrabbit. He decided to charge me, but luckily I happened to have my charter on me (it’s still in the shipping tube so it’s pretty easy for me to carry it around) and was able to beat him down with it. So if it weren’t for my CFA charter, I would be bear poo.
^^ last two posts are great
Hi Iginla Thanks for answering the questions in detail. Because I thought this place offers “free lunch” which I can get Stalla/Schweser-like materials for free. I was told this site offers great resources for CFA Materials. Yes, plenty of discussions here and many are very interesting to read Thanks everyone
I really like cats. Why aren’t there more dedicated topics to this subject matter?
I like this one post about bear.
I thought you could stop bear attacks by asking them “If CFA is so important, why am I not earning more money?”. You can make your escape while their heads explode.
I like lamp
Hahahah if this post doesn’t answer your question, you can head on to whatever forum you’ll enjoy more. I love this place on it’s good days…
