Easy 8 on the annoyance scale.

Never leave your Granola bars in the kayak. Not sure how that bear was able to listen to that voice without losing it's temper.

Did she even consider that the bear's name wasn't "Bear"? The foolproof way to shoo any powerful self-sufficient creature away is to simply play some Dylan at high volume.

To hell with the kayak, I would've run away.

Where's Marlin Perkins when you really need him?

Brilliant distraction while the bear's mother sneaks up behind the idiot with the iPhone!

She's ordering that bear around like it's her husband in that old-lady-who-still-thinks-she's- a-young-girl voice. Bleh.

Dear God that voice. That high pitched up talk Berkley left wing envirokook voice makes me want to kill puppies and burn old women to death and foment the beginning of the apocalypse.

She wanted to live with one with nature, and the bear just wanted her to put things up when she was done using them.

Are we sure the video wasn't filmed first and the audio added later?

The comments are fun. The fact that she felt a need to video the whole thing adds another component to the story.

What I hear is the voice of a little girl who reached a point in her development where speaking up for herself and knowing how to use anger as a life saving, protective energy force was not something she learned to do without placating, pleading, wheedling, and shouting. When she encounters a crisis, she reverts back to the tools she has available in her box, which doesn't appear to involve a useful blend of emotional awareness and critical thinking skills.

The cat went nuts as I was listening to her. I don't know if it was the high pitch, the intensity, or fear present in her voice, but it definitely ruffled his fur. He was glad when it was over.

That would put them on the road to ninja-hood. Can't have that. They all died out.
