Don't suck, sing! [Aug. 4th, 2008|05:37 pm]

Being bitten by a rattlesnake is a staple of Western movie plots. The hero shows his courage and resourcefulness by husing his trusty knife to make an x-shaped incision over the bite and then by sucking out the venom. This practice has led to a number of jokes involving snakebites on various parts of the anatomy, with the punchline "You want me to what?!" -- But you can't believe everything you see in the movies. For instance, an incision near the wound can introduce serious nfection, and venom can be absorbed through the mouth. The recommended treatment includes washing the affected area with soap and water, wrapping a bandage above the bite ( but not so tight as to cut off blood circulation) and seeking immediate medical care for treatement with antivenin. The victim should try to remain clam, since activity only speeds up absorption of the venom.

A good word of caution, There are a ton of rattle snakes where I am right now, the odds of getting bit seem to high. Here's another, babies arn't alwasy harmless. Baby rattle snakes are sometimes more dangerous than their parents, becaus eif they strike they don't know yet to control their venom release, so you get a massive dose of venom.

i thought the treatment was to relax, and enjoy the trip? it takes a whole lot of venom, like ten bites maybe? to kill a man.

(dave tells me this, having had psychedelic experiences on accident due to snake bites... eaaaahhh i am afraid of snakes)

Absolutely beautiful voice, but I swear there were a few time when it looked like he was about to put the moves on that puppet.

Like Zibacco above me.. I thought the same thing when Andrea Bocelli was telling Elmo to go to sleep. Either he doesn't know "personal space" when talking or he was ready to touch Elmo's "special area". Sesame Street needs to do a background check on his ass cause he might be a sexual offender.

OK this is horrible.. but i didn't know he was blind. I just found out a while ago. I guess that explains why he was so close.
