Snakes in a Tub

Stupid human tricks:

Jackie Bibby with 87 Rattlesnakes Another day, another bizarre world record for Jackie Bibby, the “Texas Snake Man.” Bibby spent about 45 minutes in a see-through bathtub with 87 rattlesnakes Monday, fully clothed, shattering his own record by 12 snakes just in time for Guinness World Records Day, which is Thursday. A Guinness official certified the record.

His mama must be so proud.

    No amount of money in the world could make me do that. I will have nightmares after just seeing that picture.

    I think we should take out an ad in al jezzera saying this is what Texan’s do for fun. Are you really sure you want to Jihad against us?

    It might discourage a few and it might get a few to take it as a personal challenge and try their local equivalent. Because there is an art to doing this, I suspect it might lower the potential suicide recruits through self selection.
