    I saw a young teen spot a watersnake (non poisonous) in a pool. He yelled "hey, a snake" and grabbed it by the tail end. Wow, did that snake turn fast. It grabbed him and he just about jumped out of the water. The snake left about 100 teeth in his hand (yes, if you grab a snake and pull him away, the teeth stay behind - but only non-poisonous snakes). He had to get the teeth removed and a tetanus shot.

    I've seen that happen twice. once with an 8ft King Snake.

    I've also seen a teen try to grab a chipmunk as he thought it was "cute" and it seemed to be cornered. It took over 100 stitches to close him up from wrist to shoulder. Oh, did I mention the tetanus shot and the rabies shots?

    Sudden lead poisoning is a risk in places like South Central.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    That's two kinds of dangerous "wildlife" you've spoken about in the last two posts. I'll take my chances with a King Snake any day before a U.K. tabloid newspaper. Hell, I'd even take my chances with Mr Romney before a U.K. tabloid newspaper

    Um, I don't know. That might not be that bad. Substitute any US politician and the blindness would go way beyond my eyes!

    Seems to me there have been quite a few of those pictures in recent years.

    Prince Harry would be easy on the eyes compared to many politicians. If it had been John Boehner, I think I'd have to put my own eyes out. I have never had the desire to see what an Oompa-loompa looks like naked, and after finding out involuntarily, I might well never want to see again. And Haley Barbour, Boss Hogg, and Barney Frank would round out a top trio of auto-blindness candidates, in the spirit of bi-partisanship.

    And don't forget Bill Clinton! I doubt even Hillary is still interested in smokin' that cigar!
