We just watched some yahoo on television dance with a highly venomous snake in the desert somewhere. He made a comment that one drop of this snakes venom could kill a man in about 10 minutes. A very short while later, the snake bit him. So he and the crew flushed the wound and applied suction at the scene, and then drove 14 minutes to the nearest hospital. The next shot was of him in the hospital, where anti-venom was being administered. He said he was getting too old for this, and he would not do it again.
THE VERY NEXT DAY, that yahoo was back in the desert telling us that snakes don't move very far in a day. Lo and behold, he found that very same snake. And the dimwit ended up doing the same stupid dance - the snake trying to attack him while he was trying to get its picture.
Now, I'm not a particularly violent person, but after watching that, I was cheering for the snake.
