Drop bears are the biggest threat to Australia today, not terrorism not boat people or climate change not even our terrible politicians.

Yet drop bears are considered a fairy tale, a cute joke to scare tourists but they are very real.

You see i have a theory and you should go over to  kickstarter and check out my proposal to find and document drop bears and if your generous throw some money my way and do your part to end this menace.

Drop bears or Thylarctos plummetus to use the scientific name have been documented in the Australian museum but many detractors and deniers have claimed this was just a joke. much as the platypus was first considered a joke despite being quite real.

As the distribution map shows all of Tasmania is a home to drop bears and because there are no Koalas I will not find a false positive.

Now some of you will scoff, quite frankly I am fine with that. Because I know when I find and prove the existence and stop people from ignoring the drop bear menace i will have made a difference. I will have made the world a better place.

so please even if you doubt the existence of drop bears swing over to kickstarter and throw $7 my way to watch the documentary you might just learn something.

Oh shiny!

I like shiny things the way they glint and sparkle,  they give me warm and happy thoughts.

Where did it go?

Hmmm I need to get to the shiny. Oh its up on that ledge. I don’t think I can reach that high.

I can’t quite see what it is but it’s definitely shiny maybe its valuable?

Maybe its gold…

or diamonds…

or a robot.

I hope it’s a robot!

I like robots, they are friendly and smart and helpful. I would love a robot friend. I need to find a way up there.

It’s just out of reach maybe if I find something to stand on. Yes! That rock if I can roll that rock over here then I should be able to reach it.

There we go. Now if it will just stay still I can grab the ledge and pull myself up and see  what the shiny is.


Ahh the rock moved


it hurts


my feet are stuck


I… I can’t feel my legs?!

I can’t move my arms

Ohhh my head hurts so much I cant take it.

I’m seeing spots!

Ohhh good the pain is fading

I’m so very tired….
