Bears in Physics
- Law of Bear Inertia
- A Bear at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon
by some outside force - such as the opening of a box of powdered
sugar donuts, or a nearby scurrying fox.
- Law of Bear Motion
- A Bear will move in a straight line, unless there is a really
good reason to change direction.
- Law of Bear Acceleration
- A Bear will accelerate at a constant rate, until he gets good
and ready to stop.
- Law of Obedience Resistance
- A Bear's resistance varies in direct proportion to a human's
desire for it to do something.
- Law of Bear Disinterest
- A Bear's interest level will vary in direct proportion to
the amount of effort expended in trying to make him go away.
- Law of Bear Embarrassment
- A Bear's irritation rises in direct proportion to its
embarrassment times the amount of human laughter.
- Law of Bear Composition
- A Bear is composed of Matter + Anti-Matter + It Doesn't
- First Law of Energy Conservation
- Bears know that energy can neither be created nor destroyed
and will, therefore, use as little energy as possible.
- Second Law of Energy Conservation
- Bears also know that energy can only be stored by a lot of
- Law of Random Comfort Seeking
- A Bear will always seek, and usually take over, the most
comfortable spot in the woods.
- Law of Bear Landing
- A Bear will always land in the softest place possible.
- Law of Bear Sleeping
- All Bears must sleep whenever possible, in a
position as uncomfortable for the people involved as is
possible for the Bear.
- Law of Bear Thermodynamics
- Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case
of a Bear, in which case all heat flows to the Bear.
- Law of Bear Stretching
- A Bear will stretch to a distance proportional to the length
of the nap just taken.

- A Bear can make its body long enough to reach any
hanging backpack that has anything remotely interesting in it.

- If a Bear watches a vehicle long enough, someone will
come along and take out something good to eat.
- Law of Grocery-Bag / Ice-Chest Occupancy
- All Grocery-Bags and Ice-Chests in a given campsite must
contain a Bear within the earliest possible nanosecond.
- Law of Sugar Consumption
- A Bear will eat his weight in sugar, squared, just to show
you he can.
- Law of Fluid Displacement
- A Bear immersed in honey will displace its own volume, minus
the amount of honey consumed.
- Law of Tent Replacement
- A Bear's desire to destroy a tent is directly proportional
to the cost of the tent.
- Law of Bear Magnetism
- All wounded buffaloes attract Bears in direct proportion to
the amplitude of their moaning.
