Oh, and you have to give a snake credit. Say what you will... slimy reptilian, product of sin, whatever. In the morning a snake is a snake. At the end of the day? A snake is still a snake. No games, No pretending. Just another freakin' snake. Which only goes to show that snakes are still better than some academics I've worked with lately.
