## METRIC UNITS below. USA UNITS here.

# BEAR STATISTICS

# Grizzly Bear

**Weight: 250kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 56kph = 16 m/sec**

**More bear stats here. **

# Brown Bear

**Weight: 680kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 35kph = 10m/s**

**More bear stats here.**

**Comparing these speeds to the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt:**

# Usain Bolt:

**Top speed: 243kph = 12m/s**

**So Usain Bolt could out run a Brown Bear but NOT a Grizzly!**

# Bears are NOT as dangerous as:

**In fact more Americans die choking on their own vomit each year than a re killed by bears.**

**More death stats here.**

**But bears are very fast so Park Rangers recommend the following survival tactics:**

Death by Caffeine: The Math Part 1 USA UNITS here.

The lethal dose for **caffeine** is about 150 milligrams per kg of body weight. While the average person’s **caffeine** consumption is around 200 milligrams a day, the Mayo Clinic advises against exceeding 500 to 600 milligrams per day.

This work titled Timing is Everything is by street artist ABOVE in London.

You may want this much energy but be warned, energy drinks can kill.

It would take a ridiculously huge number of ANGRY WOMBAT energy drinks to kill a 14 year old weighing, say, 48 kg. Nevertheless, some kids are more sensitive to caffeine than others and then much lower levels of consumption of energy drinks can be fatal.

See Death by Caffeine: The Maths Part 2 METRIC

Here is the work (see below) TIMING IS EVERYTHING by street artist ABOVE in London showing the timing.

**This math mural is on a high school wall, somewhere. It works because it has a street art vibe. Not a grade school math book look. That’s cool. **

**Why not do something like this for your school.**
