Depends on the setting. If it's a cage match, the bears win since the Marines won't really have any easy way of doing much damage to the bears. If it's in a realistic venue, like in a forest, I'll take the Marines. They'll eventually figure out something to use as a weapon like a rock or a tree.

The only thing I could think of would be to somehow MAKE a weapon. You have to get really specific on this. For example, if the Marines are wearing belts, you might be able to choke the bears to death. A Marine or two would fall in the process, but they might be able to win that way.

If it's literally hands and feet only, the Marines are toast.

You have never been close to a grizzly bear, have you? The power in those things is unreal. They can bring down a full grown 7 foot tall bull moose.

The bear would flick the marine and his belt off like a house fly. They can also keep up with a race hose in a short sprint. A grizzly bear is nothing but muscles, teeth, speed and nasty.

Oh, I don't disagree. I'd still bet on the bears. But I could see it being POSSIBLE. If you get 3 or 4 guys distracting it from the front and another rides it like a bull, you never know.

This reminds me of something that went around the internet like 5 or 6 years ago, where a Taiwanese(?) wrestling promoter made an event where a 100 midgets fought 1 lion. The 1 lion won hands down. Now I don't know how real that was of course, but this sounds like a similar match up. I think 1 bear would kill all 8 marines. With there being 2 bears, it is not even close. The bears by a mile. I mean this scenario doesn't even give the marines an area to try to sneak attack. Large flat field?
Yup bears 8 -marines 0.

allen_kcCard
06-09-2012, 06:50 PM
Yeah, in that situation I don't know how many marines it would take to take down even 1 grizzly. The only chance they would have would be to try to dogpile it enough to get so many bodies on it that it could be held still for someone to try to kill it incapacitated. And even then, a belt choking a bear would be a feat I would think. With all that hide and all that muscle it would take a lot to keep that things windpipe closed. And even with unlimited numbers of marines, that bear would leave quite a body count.

I would say it could be comparable to how many 1st graders would it take to take down one marine if the marine had leather armor, claws, and huge fangs, while the 1st graders were somehow intellectually superior.

One of the men in the Lewis and Clark expedition had the dubious distinction of being the first European to be attacked by a Grizzly. The bear slashed his chest with its claws, he broke his musket over the bear's head, and shimmied up a tree. The bear sat there, looking at him, for something like eight hours, until it wandered off at sunset. No one else knew where he was until he came wandering back in to camp, bloody and with a broken gun.

Well, yeah. Early hunters were able to take down mammoths with primitive weapons. But these Marines would have nothing - just fists and teeth - and humans really are amazingly unprepared biophysically for that sort of thing.

There are too many variables missing to make an accurate assessment.
- What is the size of the battleground?
- What are the variables of the battleground? (i.e. trees, boulders, hills, etc...)
- How far apart are the combatants when they start the battle?
- Do the marines, (or bears), have any prep time?
- Are the marines wearing their standard uniform?
All of these factors were stated in Rainman's CP Gladiator thread last year and would be highly significant in deciding the victor of this particular battle.

BTW - I'd wager most on this board would likely be killed by a rabid raccoon if you ever came across one, let alone a grizzly.

Indeed.. I'm mad lol.

I picked my Marines with the believe that the bears wouldn't coordinate an attack together as a team, and that you mentioned the battlefield environment was usable. Bear see fire... bear no see camouflaged Marines.. bear 1 gets ambushed.... bear 1's bones become weapons... bear 2 gets raped.

just have it chase something down a narrow path with a big ass hole 15 feet deep with spears pointing up at the bottom. The bear will fall to its death. 8 marines can dig a 15 foot deep hole in an hour.

We do dig a shitload of foxholes..... a coordinated attack would be lure and bait each bear into a hole. I say have 4 Marines take turns running bat shit for a while while the other 4 Marines dig holes.

Marines are just people with some training. There's no way bears don't win this one. The only way 50 marines win is if they get their hands on splintered femurs of their fallen brothers and somehow stab a bear to death.

I watched it... If the scenario was set to where the

environment was only 100 yards with no terrain alterations(making camo useless) and the bears see the Marines as a threat then Marines are bear meat.

Do people think every Marine has Macgruber-like Ninja skills? The baddest ass Marines would probably tell you to go f*ck yourselves if you offered them this challenge.

You ain't "choking out" a Grizzly bear with a belt. Some people watch too many movies...

Capitalize the M in Marines k.

and to answer the question/poll ... it would be the (8) Marines.

I was getting ready to argue with you on this point because it wasn't capitalized in my day unless you were using it as a proper noun. Apparently the AP and NY Times have changed their minds on this in recent years and they capitalize it no matter what. So, I'm glad I research before I stick my foot in my mouth. I think I will pat myself on the back.

in a weaponless fight, the only thing that can kill a bear is a bigger bear. Unless a bear wanders into Africa.

I am voting for the Marines, and I think they would use the Kill Bill technique.

First, a group would go after the most surly bear and snatch it's eyeballs out, rendering it helpless to put up much of an attack.

Hopefully one of the Marines would know the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique and apply it thusly to the second bear. In the meantime, they could finish off the first bear with no eyes. They may incur a few injuries at this point, but probably not get killed.

Marines two, bears zero.

Wait a minute. The new Corps is allowed to call them "foxholes"? The army sits in fox holes. In my Marine Corps they're called Fighting Holes. No wonder 8 Marines can't take a couple of bears. They're all a bunch of pussies these days. "Foxholes" --- pshhhh

Still fighting positions. False comparisons though, as there is no such thing as an unarmed marine otherwise the 8 people would be in the peace corps. And since they were listed as marines, 1/3 of them would be in aviation so they have close air as that is how we fight. Fight smart. Time and place of our choosing-hibernating bears at 3 in the morning with thermobarics........

Need clarification...

Are the Marines enlisted, commissioned, or mustangs. Finally, are they Florida aviation Marines POGS or Cali Grunts?

Okay, we all know you are a Marine. You can stop reminding us now.

In all fairness, eight Marines stranded in the Pacific Northwest, being stalked by two Grizzlies, would have a pretty good chance of surviving, even if they had no tools. They could fashion spears, use the terrain to their advantage, set up ambushers or deadfalls, or do any number of other things to improve their odds dramatically. This is humanity's great advantage over animals in the first place: we can think.

But that's not this question. This one is a walled football field, with eight unarmed US Marines on one side, and two angry Grizzly bears on the other. With no tools, weapons, or time, all of the humans' advantages have been stripped and they - despite being in peak physical shape, with extensive training, and among the biggest badasses in the history of the world - have no measurable chance of winning.

True enough. All the 8 CP members would have to do, is drop their pants, whip out their 14" Johnson's and the bears would no doubt kick the bucket on the spot, out of fear.

That would work from 300 yards, no doubt. If the giant peckers and rock tossing didn't do the trick, little question a quick twist of the neck, would make short work of the bears as well.

I've seen just two black bears scatter 50 or more basically unarmed soldiers like roaches when they came barreling into the area... armed with only a leatherman & some blanks, outside of Anchorage, Ak... i found the roof of my machine pronto.

A black bear at the zoo once eyed & stalked me so bad that it stuck with me for several days, was never so glad to have zoo barriers & believe me, i was checking their status.
