i found a snake in my yard this week while mowing the lawn. i tried to play with it but it seemed very angry. it must have been having a bad day. maybe we will cross paths in the future when it is feeling better.

I was mowing the yard and didn't see a snake until it was too late. RIP

All the animals in Australia are horrific. I suspect one of those clawbirds got our lovely Alice. RIP also.

I can handle the animals just fine. As long as I have feet to run from things bigger than me.

It's the smaller things that scare me. Also, you can't outrun a kangaroo.

............ O_O My god that spider's freaking me out. I have a few friends that live in Aus, one of which lives in Cooma, She posted a pic of a snake that freaked me right the eff out. It was HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE, like the size of a bus in length, and it was just chillin out on the side of the road slithering along at crazy speed. I think I crawled into a ball and rocked myself for a while. Insane.

Did I ever post that pic of that two meter brown snake I almost stepped on?

That is so awesome, but Australia is a death trap. I can handle all the land animals, but the real bad things are in the ocean.

I tell Alice that I'd be dead within 30 seconds of arriving from trying to catch all the animals.

Duh. That's why I said meter and not metre. Old people in Alabama still say meter.

Old people here sometimes still measure stuff in feet even though they switched to imperial long ago. The boss and I were at one job trimming a hedge and the old man asked us to take about two feet off of it. The boss waited until the guy was gone, cut a bit off, turned to me and said, "Was that two feet?"

Seriously? Fuck Australia. If I ever go there it will be in an airtight high-rise hotel.

Don't forget the blacks! They're just like our blacks but with accents.

Not French Canadian blacks, though. Uppity bastards.

What really blows my mind is we now have French Canadian (insert any nationality here). That didn't exist when I was a kid. It's awesome though.

For you guys, it would be like meeting Asian people with thick Southern accents.

Yet even MORE reasons not to mess with Australia...print this off and keep it nearby.

I'm sure it eats brains, so +20 to the gross factor.
