    1. Comments are getting so predictable…I just won a bet with my co-worker that someone would comment, “Snakes…Why’d it have to be snakes?” and yup, you proved me right! Thanks for the free pop! 

    1. The first sentence of that article reads:

      Laita is lucky to be alive as he was bitten by a black mamba, which is 100 percent fatal.

      This is possibly the most stupid thing I have ever read.
