Do not let others be your reference for who you see in the mirror.

Stop allowing people to hurt you, because you don't love you enough to walk away.

Thanks, Tred. I am not in Cali at the moment (whew). I may never go back.

In other news, I heard on NPR the other day that in the Dakotas rattlers are evolving to have no rattle. Still venomous, though. Yikes.

The friend who posted this is in LA. (ETA: City of Angels)

I saw an Eastern Diamondback (not in captivity) a couple of years back. It was a BIG snake, but NOWHERE NEAR this one! The head on that thing is huge!!

Are you pulling my leg?? Did you know that is where I live?!? That doesn't look like LA to me!

ETA: Out of curiousity, how did it become an ex-snake? Did your friend hit it with his truck?

That picture has been making the rounds for quite some time. See story about it (and other alleged giant snake pics/stories) here -

I'm not saying it isn't a fake. It could be.

I know I've seen a snake so huge it took a row of men to hold it up- on my grandfather's farm when I was a kid and I've more recently personally seen snakes a LOT larger than they were supposed to be, according to the books.

Thank you, NIK.

I may just move to Ireland anyway. There have been far too many snake/sbake postings on SI lately for my liking.

I could see a rattler (Eastern or Western diamondback) getting that big. All it takes is good eatin'...

Alaska. No snakes in Alaska.
