Try to figure this out


Question

A guy walks a mile south from his camp to collect some resources, when suddenly, HE WAS ATTACKED BY A BEAR!!!!! Quickly, he ran 1 mile west to get to safety. "Phew! That was close!", he thought. So he walked a mile north back to his camp.

Question:

What colour was the bear?

Think about it. He went 1 mile south, 1 mile west, and 1 mile north. Where on earth is it possible to do this? The north pole, of course!. Therefore the bear was a polar bear and was white.

He didn't have to be at the North pole...there are infinite places he could have started (specifically any point 1+1/2pi miles from the south pole).

Of course, since there are no BEARS in that area, I guess the North pole is the only valid place that it could be since he in fact was being chased by a bear...

This question has can be seen here...
