Seems like most of the UF fans I run into are drunkard boors. Seems to run in the ethically challenged Gator program. Oh well.Ironic that "cracker" is viewed as an insult, because Florida crackers were resourceful...
Saw the movie on DVD. Made sense to me because I was not trying to "interpret" it. I enjoy movies like this and will see Melancholia tomorrow. I assumed the younger brother died in Viet Nam, and the scene with the bb gun in the woods reinforced that assumption.
The polar bear will take on male walruses, which is astounding.
In the bear vs tiger battle, it would probably fall within some range, like 65 / 35 percent one way or the other. I believe bears have an advantage because their front legs and paws are so powerful. The tiger, however, may be able to use this to his advantage, because tigers attack by clamping down on the throat. If the bear were to miss, the tiger may have access to the bear's trachea.
