Ok…let’s pretend you find yourself walking in the woods of Norway. All of a sudden, you’re surrounded by a pack of wolves. What do you do first? Blast some music from the quasi-Christian rock group [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Creed[/lastfm]? Yeah, me neither, but this is the tale of one boy who did…
13-year-old Walter Eikrem was walking home from school when he saw the pack of wolves approach him. His mother had warned him never to run away from wolves, so naturally, he took his headphones out of his ears, turned up the volume, and blasted Creed’s “Overcome.”
Turns out, his crazy idea actually worked! Walter told a TV station:
They just turned around and simply trotted away. The worst thing you can do is run away because doing so just invites the wolves to chase you down … but I was so afraid that I couldn’t even run away if I’d wanted to.
So maybe the next time I run into mountain lion, I should blast some [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Britney Spears[/lastfm]? A little “Crazy” should do the trick, right?
