Dear Guy Who Was Arrested For Driving Around With 53 King Cobras In His Car,

No woman can resist a guy who lives a rock n’ roll lifestyle. In fact, I’ve previously written a love letter to a guy who was so obsessed with heavy metal that he was forced to quit his job and receive disability benefits. I thought that dude was hardcore, but daaaaaamn, your badass ways make him seem like a fluffy, cuddly kitten in comparison: you were recently arrested in Vietnam for driving around with 53 king cobras in your car. I’m terrified by this story. And also intrigued. Let’s grab a bite to eat and talk about your rock n’ roll lifestyle. We’ll take my car.

Xoxo,
Winona

The unnamed girl. who interned at the Connecticut Science Center, said the experience helped her overcome her fear of snakes:

“I am usually a very shy person, and now I am more outgoing. I was able to teach those children about certain things like snakes that we have and the turtles that we have… I want to do something toward that, working with children when I get older.”

Rep. Hewitt was heard on audiotape replying:

“If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here.”

Worst Nightmare: Toddler Hides Eggs In His Closet; Hatches 7 Deadly Snakes

Boy Steals Parents' Life Savings...
...and uses it to buy candy. Read More »

Kyle Cummings, a three-year-old boy from Queensland, Australia, was delighted to find a pile of eggs in his backyard, so he did what any toddler would do: he scooped them up and stashed them in his closet. Three days later, his mother discovered the not-so-delightful result of her son’s curiosity, when seven eastern brown snakes–the second most venomous snake in the world–came slithering out. Luckily the newborn snakes were not big enough to inflict dangerous bites (the amount of venom in one bite from an adult brown snake is enough to kill 20 people), and a wildlife group was able to capture the snakes and release them back into the wild. In the understatement of the year, Kyle’s mother, Donna Sims describes her reaction to finding a deadly snake nest in her home: ”I was pretty shocked, particularly because I don’t like snakes.” Shudder.

How PMS Can Save Your Life

Breaking news in the world of snake detection. And no, I’m not talking about trouser snakes. I’m talking about actual snakes. Those slithery things that can kill you, either because you are freaked out to the point of cardiac arrest or because they are poisonous. Those things. A new study found that women are better at sensing the presence of snakes right before their periods. Add that to the list of amazing PMS symptoms: Bloating, cramping, irritability, food cravings, heightened sensitivity to snakes. And why does PMS make us so snake sensitive? Because our premenstrual hormones make us more aware of perceived threats. In case we are pregnant and trying to keep our spawn safe from things like snakes. Certainly, if I ever go camping (which I don’t plan to), it will right before my period, so that I can save myself from snake death. [Live Science]

Salma Hayek Is Not A Fan Of Snakes


Fun, newly learned fact about Salma Hayek: she is terrified of snakes. No, seriously, terrified. Like, will practically s**t her Gucci if she sees one, and is willing to climb over chairs in stilettos and maybe even dive into a lake to escape. Here is proof. Guess she won’t be starring in “Snakes on a Plane 2″? [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Snake Ear Wrap: Creepy Or Chic?

I normally stick to simple hoops or tiny stud earrings, so it’s a little odd that I’m so drawn to this elaborate snake earring. I just can’t help loving how it winds around, going through a regular hole and wrapping itself up the ear. What would you pair with it in your other ear? Or would you buy two and wear both at once?
