    You leave your camp and walk 3 miles due south. You then turn 90 degrees and walk due west for three mile. You then turn due north and walk three miles and see a bear tearing up your camp. What color is the bear?

    Must be huge bear to be seen from 3 miles away. Unless of course it's a white bear.

    Well if you are back at you camp you just walked in a Triangle, the only way to do that is if your camp is at the north pole. Therefore the bear must be white.

    If you didn't walk back to your camp then you are observing the bear from 3 miles away and can afford much better optics than I can.

    White is the correct answer. You guys are pretty good. And yes, you are at the north pole and do not have huge optics.
