RE: Chat hub
I was head of chemistry in the school there.

Made sure I had the necessary to deal with the venomous reptiles there - napalm works wonders on snakes and huge monitor lizards.

And spitting cobras.

I'm blind in my right knee - would have been my right eye but I was cutting the bugger's head off with a panga at the time. Spitting cobras are a pain.

Napalm works pretty well on thieving toe rags too. The night my folks arrived to visit some toe rag decided to break in. They were a bit alarmed by the guy I shared the house with throwing a spear at the thieving bugger (My father was a judge) but were even more worried when I went out to call the cops with a couple of bottles of napalm and 12 feet of chain.

"What do you need the chain for?"

"To wrap round the neck of the thieving bastard"

Father goes into meltdown till I fetched the cops who asked why we hadn't killed the thief. They understood the explanation that we missed. 

And went out to beat the crap out of the guy who looked after the house as houseboys counted as the usual suspects. Unfortunately for Mubita, it wasn't him.

Then father really melted down - the rule of law there was a bit different.

And while I remember.

Yay Michael!

It's good to see you back in good form.

RE: Chat hub
I'm not into venomous reptiles only like seeing them from a distance lol if i kept them i would prob be dead the amount of times i've been bitten lol The spitting cobras are the black ones aren't they ? All mine are none venomous from corns to house snakes right through to boas carpet pythons and recticulated pythons which are my favorites, I can imagine you have to watch your back over there with some of the people, does the venom effect you if its just on the skin i know it can blind you if they get you in the eyes and getting bitten is never a good thing! lol I bet its harder to get anti venom over there

RE: Chat hub
Trick was not to let them close enough to find out.

Napalm is good that way - when you have cremated everything within 6 metres, species etc. is of strictly limited interest.

Crispy critters have no interest at all to me. Trick was to keep the cats out of the death radius. (Even though I hate cats. They are very, vey good at eating vermin if you don't feed them very often)

I have tales. Most of them gruesome.

There was the time I got my motorcycle up on it's back wheel to run over what i thought was a puff adder. The 6 metre monitor lizard whose tail I'd just run over was less than happy.

Fortunately it could only run at about 20 mph - running over it's head a few times at 70mph quietened the monster down enough for me to get away.

I like snakes, probably because I haven't had to deal with them too often. Killed a couple water moccasins, but other than that my experience has been garden snakes or pets. I'd like to have a scarlet king snake as a pet, just to freak people out because they look like coral snakes Tongue

Most snakes are harmless a hamster would cause more damage than the average snake lol its surprising just how many people keep them and there prob one of the easiest and cheapest pets to keep some of mine only get fed once a month others once a week Smile there's not many wild ones around here and only one venomous species the adder, i bet the ones you come across the most are corns and kings were you are

Yeah I've seen some corn snakes, don't usually see kings, they seem to stay away from the suburbs. I see a lot of green garden snakes, those are fun, only about 3' long and they'll wrap you up like a little constrictor! (they're actually probably trying to climb your arm like a tree I'd guess)
