    I'd give you links, but I've had a morbid fear of snakes since I was a young child and can't even stand looking at pix of them.

    If you're really interested, there should be two stories of religious rattlesnake handlers dying from snakebite within the last six months.  I've seen the headlines on my Yahoo news feed, but haven't clicked on the stories.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

      I recall specifically one of them, but I may have missed the other.  It's just not much of a shocker that it would happen.  

      If it's not a harmful one, just remember all it is is a differently shaped animal.

      •  Yeah, I have no problem with snakes (3+ / 0-)

        if they're non-poisonous. Back when I was a student at a local university there was a guy who came to campus with a huge boa (the snake, not the feathered stole) around his neck; I was the only girl that would even approach him when he had his friend along. (Nice guy and a damn good pinball player; had some awesome competitions in the arcade in the student union.)
