After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on Earth.

Well, you know times are tough when people are going all “stoic and zombie-like” and (possibly) trying to off themselves by jumping into bear pits. With real bears, a.k.a. godless killing machines and the number one threat to America.

That’s what happened on Sunday when a “transient” named Kenneth Herron somehow wrangled his way into the “grizzly bear grotto” (no joke) at the San Francisco Zoo. There’s a video of the thing, but we couldn’t figure out how to embed it. Alas. In any case, it’s pretty funny. In a mildly confusing kind of way.
