    I don't run into snakes to often. If I had to be in snake territory I'd probably weld a machete on 10' of 1" rigid conduit. F*** snakes

    One time when I was at Korat AFB in Thailand me and a couple buddies were doing a FOD inspection of the runway, actually it was just running the shit out of an old Dodge Powerwagon down the runway supposedly looking for foreign objects that could get sucked into a jet engine.

    When we got to the hammerhead on runway 34 there was a little shack that I had noticed when we were taking off or landing, so I drove over to it and we all hopped out to check it out. It was just a cinder block building, but there was some corrugated sheet metal nailed to a wooden frame, so I went over to see what was under it, when I picked it up, a huge ****ing King Cobra rose up with the lid, I know he wasn't that tall but I swore he looked me in the eyes. He hissed and showed me his hood swear it was a foot wide, that isn't exaggerating, I slammed the cover down and ran like a little school girl:lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen:

    My buddies yelled at me to come back to the truck, I told them to drive it over to me I wasn't getting near that big ****er :lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen:

    Any snake is out of place in this case.
