Suave, you've got plenty to work with if you're assigned horror or thriller - truth is stranger than fiction! Smile


This last one was just a couple of miles from my house!  there is really no winning with the snakes: if it too hot then they come out to find shade or a drink.  If is raining then they come out to find somewhere dry.  I found one going past my front porch the other day, not too big only a yard long, so I have been snake proofing my back screen door that had a bout half and inch space underneath it - bubble wrap does wonders.


In Thailand it's ALWAYS too hot, raining, or both.  I guess this is the point.  Wake up, de-snake the bedroom (is it possible to snakeproof a dwelling there?), de-snake a path to the bathroom...

So what took you to Snakeland anyway?


Never 100%, but you can cut down the odds.  I try and turn on lights when I am going somewhere in the house, but you get pretty blasé after awhile, if you move slowly they have a chance to get away from you, they are much more afraid of you. . . but they do move quickly.  Some friends found a green tree snake looking out from where they keep the coffee cups last week when they went to make coffee, they are harmless and really a beautiful little critter when they are not in your cupboard looking at you.  I am living the life of the rich American in a foreign land - well, without being an asshole - or being that rich.

Could be worse. You could have started your day by planting both feet in a pile of broken glass.

And the broken glass is from the whisky glass that King Cobra was drinking, waiting for you to wake up. But he lost his composure, good old K.C., and slammed the glass upon the very ground to wake you up. 

Mattrick's right. There ARE worse ways of waking up (besides Folger's in your cup).

When I think of King Cobras, or really any snake in general, I’m reminded of the Imgur post/list/whatever you call it where they were giving animals their ‘proper’ names. They had a picture of a cobra with the name “Danger Noodle” Seems appropriate.

But here in the states, particularly where I live, we have one important little smarmy individual we have to look out for. Science calls him the Diamondback rattlesnake, Imgur calls him the Audible Nope Rope.

Nothing inspires creativity like the chance to fall flat on ones face.

There was no king cobra in my past. I just broke a drinking glass in my sleep and woke up in a horrible, horrible way. I still went bowling though!

If there was a King Cobra in Canada, the shock of that alone would probably kill me.

Zoos don't count. I mean, there are Kangaroos and Rhinos and Elephants in the zoo. But they ain't out in the wild. I mean, if they escaped, they would be.
