Depends ... am I in the water, and is the laser beam of a frequency that will transmit through water, or not?

How do you tell the difference between a black bear and a grizzly bear?
If you climb a tree to escape it, the black bear will climb the tree after you. The grizzly will push the tree over.

Being as inland as I am, I'm more likely to run into a bear than a shark.

What frequency is the laser?

I said "shark" because it rolls off the tongue better. Really, either one would be terrifying to encounter in its native habitat, with or without a frickin' laser beam.

Actually, I think a grizzly bear would be *less* terrifying, because it would probably be distracted by a massive electrical appliance on its head. A shark would be less likely to notice, or care.

And besides, you didn't mention whether it was a comm laser, a rangefinding laser to target the pony nuke, or a particle beam weapon laser.

If this were Star Trek, a comm laser means it wants to talk, and the previous 45 minutes were all just a tragic misunderstanding...

you mean because it forgot to invert the polarity of the beam by shunting the path through the medical transporters, around the gravitational anomaly in the port-side jeffries tube, via the tachyon shunt in the auxilliary phaser control runs, and out through the deflector dish?

Bear definitly.

A Shark, if you get out of the water, and/or out of range, get behind cover, you're safe.

Bears Frickin SWIM. And they run a Shite of a lot faster than people, so they'll not only chase you down as you RUN for the water to get away, they will BEAT you there and eat you before you can get to the water.

Tho a bear fishing Salmon out of the river with a Laser would be frickin cool.

I can more easily stay out of the water than I can outrun a grizzly bear :-)

Not true. A shark can be bought off with a smaller, slower mammal.

yeah, you don't have to outrun the dragon.. you just have to out run the halfling.

enh, i've swam with sharks. no big deal there. as long as i'm not bleeding, i can hide. you can even toy with them with shiny metal objects. ;)

i'm not as effective being sneaky sneaky out of the water....limited directions to go to hide....and i apparently smell very sweet when scared...yeah great in some applications, but bad to be the candy bar when faced with a bear.

You could, theoretically, reason with a bear, or trigger their maternal instinct, or act dead enough or non-threatening enough they no longer care. These statements do not hold true for a shark.

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS POLL

The bear *is* the shark. They are one and the same. It's a laser shark-bear. The false duality is just a way to lull you into a sense of safety and get you into range so it can zap you and then bite you!

I have the better chance of running into the griz. Don't do the ocean thing much

Neither would be that particularly more terrifying than unaltered animals, as they both primarily hunt by scent and not sight.

And it depends on whether we're on water, or land?

The grizzly bear with a laser on its forehead would be sort of comical, while there is nothing funny about sharks.

Wait... sharks have foreheads?

I said grizzly bear, as I figure there's a decent chance the water will deflect the laser beam, so the shark's aim would be off. Plus, if you get out of the water, you're golden.

Sharks.
You have a better chance of reasoning with the bear, or distracting it with something.
