True story: I listened to Justin Bieber. (via kp.ru)
We all know that Justin Bieber is repellent, but until now science was unable to say just how repellent. Thanks to a near-death incident between a Russian fisherman and a huge predator, however, we know that he is, at minimum, bear-repellent (i.e. 4 to 80 times stronger than human pepper spray).

Igor Vorozhbitsyn was walking from his car to his favorite fishing spot when "there was a tremendous impact on my back and the bear was on top of me." Not a cute little black bear trying to get at some snacks in his pocket, either. A big-ass brown bear, a 1000+ lb. predator and the national symbol of Russia. At that moment, however, someone happened to call Igor, causing his phone to begin playing its pre-selected ringtone, Justin Bieber's 'Baby.' Naturally, like any creature that values its own life, the humongous bear ran off into the woods.
Sadly, human expansion has decimated the Bieber-free environment bears need.
Said Vorozhbitsyn, "I couldn't believe my luck when the phone went off and he fled. I know that sort of ringtone isn't to everyone's taste, but my granddaughter loaded it onto my phone for a joke." I hope his granddaughter is in slightly less trouble, seeing as that horrible joke saved his life.
Let's be honest: if you were a bear, he'd look pretty tasty. (via kp.ru)
No word yet on whether Orlando Bloom and the bear have teamed up to avenge their reputations against the young Canadian musician, although the bear has been romantically linked to Miranda Kerr in the past.
