A man builds a rectangular house. After he builds the house he wants to place a clock on a south wall. Because there are so many south walls he places the clock on a random wall. He sits in front of the clock for ten minutes until he hears a knock on his font door. The man opens the door to see a bear on his front porch. The bear kills him. What color was the bear and why?

"There are so many south walls" implies that the house is in the north pole as all the direction for anyone in a north pole points to south so the color of the bear from north pole has to be white.

How?
