I hope I never get to experience hell. To me, hell would be a place full of tangled Christmas lights, tangled coat hangers, men with their hair in buns, women who want to speak to the manager, and of course snakes.

I don't know why I don't like snakes. They make such fine boots I should really appreciate them for their contribution to my footwear but I don't. I really have a deep fear of snakes and snakelike things. They simply creep me out.

I must tell you I got very anxious watching this video from Folsom Lake in California. The snake, identified on the video as a rattlesnake, appears to be swimming toward and desiring to get on the boat in which the videographer is riding. Why the captain of the boat didn't go full speed ahead the moment the snake was spotted is beyond me.
