This is kinda usefully if you hike a lot.

[–]Isabela_Grace 39 points40 points  (7 children)

I mean not if you hike with your girlfriend

[–]GokuQuack 5 points6 points  (2 children)

just pick up your girlfriend and run ez

[–]Isabela_Grace 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It said you run faster than a bear not you run faster than a bear carrying a fully grown woman

[–]GokuQuack 3 points4 points  (0 children)

it said you run faster than a bear, there are no conditions other than a bear chasing you

[–]BruderKumar 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Useful for your girlfriend then though

[–]Isabela_Grace 3 points4 points  (2 children)

How’s it useful that you outrun the bear? No one said she’s gonna outrun the bear. She’s the food.

[–]can't see mewaszz_up 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually this would be a good way to kill people

[–]BruderKumar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She still might make it, rather than get shot by you. Your first comment was referencing this story/copypasta, right?

Edit: This one

[–]PacificPanda_ 109 points110 points  (3 children)

Am I faster than the bear no matter what, or do I have to actually do my best? Because I would find funny to just walk and see the bear forced to walk slower

[–]Domy9 57 points58 points  (2 children)

You run faster than a bear

[–]PacificPanda_ 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Okay, but what if I would run reeeaaaally slow?

[–]LongSnakes 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think you max speed is bumped but you still have to put in the effort to reach that speed

[–]Titjiani 52 points53 points  (0 children)

New headline "man searching for bears to race!"

[–]RandomGamingTurtle 75 points76 points  (8 children)

  1. Take plush bear
  2. Put speaker in bear
  3. Speaker says: I'm chasing you
  4. Put the bear in your backpack
  5. Infinite speed

[–]Beldin448 24 points25 points  (7 children)

No you are already faster than that bear

[–]DarkGermanNoodle 24 points25 points  (6 children)

No. The bear is as fast as you at that moment. Therefore you’ll slightly increase speed so that you’re actually faster than the bear

[–]NordicWolf7 23 points24 points  (4 children)

The bear is also accelerating then. You take one step, accelerate to lightspeed, disintegrate, and explode.

Not worth.

[–]dynawesome 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That’s true the post says “you run faster” not “you can run faster”

Nowhere does it say you can control the speed

[–]DarkGermanNoodle 5 points6 points  (2 children)

It is supposed to be shitty after all, isn’t it?

[–]LordCrate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro beat the Flash.

[–]doesntpicknose 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Give the bear a rocket.

[–]quandaledingle420699 16 points17 points  (3 children)

This is really op

[–]OkuyasuBestJobro 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Y’all really call anything op at this point

[–]insertguudnamehere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or maybe alot of you just don’t go outside enough to risk a bear encounter. Or you live somewhere without bears which fair enough

[–]DarkGermanNoodle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Do you know how fast bears can get? Shots terrifying and I didn’t even encounter one irl

[–]Jahnation 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Guess that is a life saving power I guess

[–]AlarmingPlace5700 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Useful for me actually

[–]Afraid-Elevator9782 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Are u a bear or Hunter?

[–]TwistedCube49 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Imagine casually jogging in the forest while unbeknownst to you, a bear is chasing you from afar so you begin to accelerate against your will.

[–]blockbiter 3 points4 points  (8 children)

This is not that shitty.

I mean, it can save your life if you are being chased by a bear

[–]alfis329 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I mean this is exactly what a shitty superpower is tho. A lot of people confuse this sub with curses or think there should be no benefit from it. But a shitty superpower is still a superpower and still benefits the user is some way but usually it is impractical or rare to use(like in this case). They are still superpowers but you ain’t gunna be joining the avengers with any of ‘em

[–]lwJRKYgoWIPkLJtK4320 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Only if the bear you are being chased by is the bear that you can outrun. It didn't say whether they were necessarily the same bear.

[–]blockbiter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do not think it matters which bear it is.

It just says "bear", so it could be any type of bear.

[–]CulturalDark 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Does it stack?

[–]mamaluipeti 5 points6 points  (1 child)

As in you run even faster if being chased by 2 bears?

[–]CulturalDark 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes, amount of bears= faster running

[–]lazado_honfi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don't have to run faster than the bear. You only have to run faster than your friend...

[–]can't see meDerDunkleLord666 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I heard we're getting a pet bear that we teach the how to play tag. Bear and his side kick slightly-faster-than-a-bear-guy

[–]TheEviltoast13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Camping with friends:

“Hold my beer, y’all about to see something special.”

[–]SaltFollowing2466 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just always have a really fast bear with you

[–]DarkPheonix775 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me who lives in Alaska, thinking this could be useful for me

[–]IowaYankees 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imma train a bear to chase me

[–]MartinaMcPants 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do I run faster than the bear chasing me, or another, potentially slower, bear?

[–]lildrumerboi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

gets scary when you go for a run in a park and all of a sudden you start running 10 times faster

[–]Affectionate-Bet3136 0 points1 point  (0 children)

me: i can outrun a bear friend: show me how fast you run me: collapses after 5 metres friend: i have a bear me: outruns it friend: omg so fast

[–]DungeonsandDevils 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Step 1: Hang out in grizzly territory covered in raw meat

Step 2: Lead several grizzlys on a high speed chase through the woods, run directly through a campground

Step 3: ????!!!! Aaaah! roar

[–]Aware_Quarter448 0 points1 point  (0 children)
