Champers tagged me: five things I’ve done/do that the opposite sex doesn’t know about:
I thought of a whole lot of stuff concerning my grooming habits, as well as my favourite sexual position and why I think missionary gets a bad rap, then thought, 'fuck it. I'll talk about snakes and shit.'
I am terrified of herpiecreatures. I therefore took it upon myself to find out everything about them. Know thy enemy they say. The three snakes to look out for in South Africa are:
The Puffadder: Can strike a balloon three times before it pops. Is the only snake that won’t move out of your path. It pumps so much venom into you on multiple striking, but chances are you won’t die. It’s a cytotoxic venom, which means it’s purely localised. You’ll probably lose the limb (hand/foot/finger) from gangrene. There is still no anti-venom available, so according to the University of the Witwatersrand Toxicology Unit, this is the snake you do not want to be bitten by (if there was a choice involved.)
The Boomslang: Fairly docile and shy, and to its detriment, back-fanged. It strikes from the side, often only delivering poison on the second bite. However, it takes a pinprick of poison to kill you. Its venom is haemotoxic – so your death is a nasty one. You haemmorhage uncontrollably from orifices in your face (ears/gums/nose), and internally. Large bruises will start to form under your skin. Without anti-venom, you’re toast in 20 minutes.
The Black Mamba This snake is the most feared amongst farmers and superstitious black tribes. Firstly it’s very aggressive and can grow up to 12 metres long. It can rise half it’s body upright and has known to bite men in the face. Cocky fuckers. They attack and corner people when they feel threatened, and have reportedly followed chosen victims at lightning speed. It’s neurotoxic venom shuts down your nervous system, and you die of asphyxiation. Your diaphragm stops working. You suffocate basically. Other neurotoxic snakes are cobras.
Yeah. Don't fuck with 'em.
