Meanwhile...back in Australia

Very general discussion about absolutely anything at all, go wildly off topic and chuck stuff about. Chit-chat. Witty banter. Crash air-planes. Bring your own "lemonade"

I like this one!
'Major Bigglesworth' said Von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Wow, that's some super woman right there! Saw this on the TV news last night, but I'm afraid if it was me, I'd still be running fast in the other direction. :shock:
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.

Personally, I just know I''d have died from an instant heart attack the moment I opened the BBQ and saw them :?

Every time I open the door to our back yard shed I take a deep breath and pray there's no creepy crawlies lying in wait for me...

If you know anything about snakes -- and you should if you live in Australia -- pythons are easy to recognise. She clearly knew they were not poisonous. Also, being winter (and a coldish one at that), and sitting in the shade, they would be fairly lethargic.

Me? I would have called the local snake wrangler:

Venomous or non-venomous - makes no difference to me, Capt Wilks. If it's a snake in my barbie, I'll be guaranteed to freak!!! (Despite the many close encounters we've had in the bush over the years :D )
