'Bare' has only one application - meaning naked or stripped (and its logical extensions, such as 'bare-faced cheek')
'Bear' (as a verb) comes from 'to bear', usually in relation to a burden.
'Bear' (as a noun) is, of course, the animal.
Pedantra you are wrong dude lol...
How about if you bare left?
Or "bare left" your mind, as in because it means a lot, it may sway you, or bare.
In my opinion, bear is the accurate answer, using only the word bare makes it erroneous but adding the word "left" to bare makes it sensible.
Secsee Devil - I think you'll find it's "bear left" when talking about directions. Pedantra is absolutely correct.
I voted wrongly. Of course it's "bear". Think of keeping your bearings...Bear that in mind!
Oh course it's bear. By the way, you bear left, not bare.
