Why I hate snakes

They cheat.

From here
Incidentally, I'm realizing what a good thing it is I never had decent internet coverage in the field.  If I'd been able to read about scary, deadly creatures that inhabited the very areas where I was working I'd have behaved way stupidly.  Entertainingly so, perhaps, but way stupidly.  Like, keeping a broom by my cot to sweep the area for snakes and scorpions before putting my feet on the floor stupidly.

Also, does anyone else think that snake in the picture has an accent?

Yeah, I never really looked up the poisonous insects in Hawaii until after I'd lived there five or six years, and then I wished I hadn't. (None of the bugs are native, which made me want to go smack the people who imported them.)
