I found a snake in my garage today. I think it's a corn snake but it is all black and gray instead of being red like most.

It scared the crap out of me at first because it's markings look very similar to a rattlesnake. It was in a box of hunting clothes I was going through early this morning before I left for the woods. (Cycle's almost over so I took a day off. Passed up a couple of does but saw no bucks.)

Anyway, I came home and dumped out the box, thinking I would kill the snake. As weird as it sounds, I kind of felt sorry for it. It seemed so friendly I decided to catch it and keep it for awhile instead. (mainly just to show my wife lol.)

I start looking up species to find out what kind it is, and like I said, I THINK it is a black and gray corn snake. Regardless, I have had it out to play with it a few times and it hasn't bitten me yet.

Does anyone know anything about corn snakes?

Everything I've found says they make great pets.

(My 5 year old thinks it is cooool... she has already named it and everything)

UPDATE: My wife is soooo pissed lol...

Bush's fault - Episode 1,231,537

Someone explain to me how the shortage of flu vaccine from a company in England is George W Bush's fault.

Seriously... it's all I've heard from the Kerry people lately but nobody has given any real explanation of WHY it is his fault. They just seem to reflexively point at the President any time something bad happens lol.

Did you see the letterman spoof where they had a fake Kerrry commercial blaming Bush for the mysterious phenomenon of all the leaves turning brown and falling off the trees?

And by the way...

I had an opportunity to help out with something really cool today. If you haven't checked the link below you should do so. A lot of people came together to try to save a little Iraqi girl's life. Hopefully everything will work out. I'll post a follow up when I find out a little more.


Reaffirming my faith in the basic goodness of people... check it out.
