2. You have BEARS! AND random crazy people are allowed to buy guns (this is hyperbole, please don't get political at me). From the outside that looks pretty scary and yet millions and millions and millions of you manage to survive. Despite the bears! We all just learn to live with our own local dangers, I guess.

LOL, I used to live in Yosemite. Bears are fine. The only bears that need worrying about are mainly in Alaska and Colorado. Polar bears and Grizzly bears. Almost everywhere else are just brown and blacks. And as long as you don't bug momma and her babes, or come between them and bacon, you're fine.
Lived in Colorado, never worried about any of the bears. Worried about my cat
, who kept trying to go out and throw the mama bears out of the carport...
And yes, we have bears, but ya know what? At no point have I ever got up in the middle of the night, walked to the bathroom, flicked on the light, and seen a grizzly hanging out on the toilet seat. And I sure as hedge have never looked down to find one crawling up my arm or leg. Bears are chainsaw-maniac scary, spiders are "the calls are coming from inside
the house" scary.
Like this one?
Its cute, fuzzy AND thoughtful.
Awwww! Give me a tiny jumping spider over kittens any day!
Yes, I know, I'm horrible at being scared of spiders.
