    And here I thought cougars were attracted to Metallica. Maybe those are just the ones that frequent the bar scene. ;)

    I've been wondering if laser pointers would work to protect oneself from wild cats. Just make the cat chase the red dot.

    Personally, I like the "Black Album". That cat must be a "Guns'NRoses" or a "Megadeath" fan.

    If Metallica is hardcore enough to scare off a cougar then Cannibal Corpse or Dying Fetus should work for grizzly bears right?

    Always figured a bugle version of Deguello was adequate for most situations, if not, then the Pipers play.
    This Metallica sounds like a synthetic imitation of a real brass band.
    Sorry, I am old and cantankerous. :)

    I may put some yoko ono on my phone for such an occasion. Seriously, she sounds like a cat being dragged backwards through a combine. I can't imagine anything not wanting to get away from that noise.

    This is why I got a new day pack a few months ago. It's a Hidden Woodsman Noisy Cricket edition. It only plays Slayer and Pet Shop Boys.

    Ok should I create a soundtrack of songs so that I will have the right song ready for whatever I should encounter in the woods?

    For that, you need Michael Bolton

    It's one of those sticky roller things to get pet hair off your clothes. Made by the same company as the Swiffer dry mop.

    I have a lullaby on my phone, when attacked I just hit play. Puts them right to sleep.

    Oops, I thought I was at the Liars Bench.

    A "Taylor" Swift is to some a song bird, identified by its red beak, yellow to white plumage. Others consider it a vocal member of the grackle family..... with legs that are too skinny.

    Playing Yoko Ono might be a bit risky. The cougar may share my opinion that her "vocals" sound like a big cat in heat and consider that track as (a) an invitation, or (b) a rival.

    Good to know for possible future use, lol. Should have played it a tune off of 'kill 'em all' instead, though; the cat might have broken its neck headbanging. Whiplash! :D

    Fan of early, fast Metallica, mostly...;)

    Weird, most of the cougars I've met like Metallica.

    I wonder what would have happened if she'd played that "Baby Shark" song. It's catchy at first but after your kids play it a thousand times, you'd rather eat a bullet than hear it again...

    That's pretty awesome. I need to show that to my two daughters (4 getting close to 5 and just turned 8) - they're both baby shark fans, though the younger one is more so. The younger one, too, has been digging metal more (think '80s Metallica, "Master" and "Justice") while the older one likes it at first but gets bored with the longer songs...

    On a side note, is it sad that I noticed they skipped the "let's go hunt" verse? :p

    Anything by Heilung might cause the cougar/mtn lions to either run away, attack, or become a totem ;)
