BinaryBear.pngIt is likely that, in the future, terrifying robot bears will decide the fate of the human race. At that point, the only people who will be able to repair and fix their corrupted programming will be people who have a BEAR license.

This is the license you need in order to keep bears in Davis (Philip?). Or something like that? The greatest threat to America? No?

BEAR stands for the [WWW]Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair. They're the state bureaucracy that extorts collects license fees from people who repair appliances and electronics professionally in the State of California. Electronics installers who work in cars also need to be licensed by BEAR in order to be legal. Unlike a state contractor's license, a BEAR license requires no demonstrated proficiency and no bond. Anyone can pay the $160 fee and get their license after filling out a form. It seems the biggest penalty for performing work without the appropriate license is a nominal fine for not asking the Nobility for permission.

Computer repair businesses need these licenses, but it seems that few do, mostly out of ignorance of the law. Note that a license is only required for consumer repairs. JimStewart had a nice chat with the lady at BEAR and asked if he needed a license since his company repairs it's own products, both in and out of warranty. She said a license is not needed for industrial or commercial work.
