    I guess when you live in a place where even the cute things are trying to kill you, you have to be that way. :evil4:


    I once read a field guide to dangerous critters in Australia and it was a simple 2 step to ID anything dangerous.

    1 - Is the creature living?
    2 - Then it will try to kill you.

    I was misunderstood as a Chinese at a tobacco shop in Sydney.
    I said "I'm Japanese". Then, all of a sudden, a Chinese old man jumped out from a room behind the shop owner and said "Japanese! You come from us!".
    I said "Yes, you are our ancestor!". I was fearful.

    After two beers, it might have been "Man eats snake after it devours croccodile".

    To hell with releasing that nasty a$$ snake back into the wild. I would have slowly killed it for revenge. The only good snake is a dead snake. I lived in the southern U.S. for the first 10 years of my life and we were taught to killem.
