    Justin, could that drone possibly have something to do with the neighbor's property line issue? I suppose that you'd be seeing someone operating it, but my surveyor friend was just telling me today that drones are getting used more and more in surveying. With the arial photography a tremendous time saver he mentioned.

    My wife hates snakes. We were shopping somewhere and the place had some rubber toy snakes. I put one in her shopping basket and gave her a little nudge to look down. She gave a shout, dropped her basket and did a little dance. Ha..mean...:D Speaking of snakes or snake like, grilled freshwater eels make for some delicious eating.

    Ray, it was so long ago, I honestly don't recall the name of the company, though Silver Springs seems to ring a bell. That thing is, they also supplied some four legged creatures, so the place I bought from was more than just a reptile institute. It must have been well before the days when laws were implemented to prevent importing certain species. They might have even supplied zoos. I seem to recall that there were some animals on their sales list that might make the neighbors a bit concerned if they knew what was also living on the block.

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread SNAKES! in The Rec Room
    In the big town not far away there used to be a snake blood serving establishment. They had snakes in cages along a wall. It was kind of dark in there. You'd tell the proprietor what you wanted...or maybe he'd tell you want you wanted. He'd kill the snake and bring the blood in a whisky glass with an alcoholic chaser., I seem to remember it being whisky. Then he'd bring the grilled snake to eat. The establishment's sign had a big snake on it. It was the coolest place, the owner's wife was very attractive too....a snake in a former life? I figured that she must have drank a lot of blood, she was tall thin and her long black hair was very shiny, or maybe she put it in her hair? I was only in there once many years ago, but salary men wanting a boost in their energy to tackle their jobs frequented. Unfortunately, the owner died and his wife closed up.

    Down Okinawa way that have a common poisonous species called Habu. They pay good money to people catching them. Many of the captured snakes get put in a large glass container containing shochu, an alcoholic beverage. The dead snake remains permanently in the container and the liquid grows darker. Drinking the extract is supposed to greatly improve sexual function. I was given one once by a friend whose wife refused to let him keep it in their house. Whether his sexual function was wearing her out or she didn't like snakes, I'm not sure. Anyway, I tried drinking a small cup full and the taste was about the most absolutely horrible thing that I have ever endured. I quickly found a buyer for it though, sold the big jar for a hundred bucks to a guy employed at the city office, people really believe it works.

    The Starbucks at the hospital even has a little library where you can read about medical stuff. While waiting for your exam results, you can be sipping your soy latte and reading about prostate cancer. Nice!

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread SNAKES! in The Rec Room
    When I was a kid there was a wildlife supply place in Florida that you could order an amazing assortment of creatures from, even foreign species. Snakes came in the mail in special packaging. If one died in transit or shortly after arrival, if you cut off the head and packed it in salt and sent it back, they would send a free replacement. I dig snakes, purchased a couple from that outfit. Boas came in small, medium and large. When I sent back a small Boa after it died in a couple days, a much bigger package arrived. They said that they were out of small and sent me a medium. :O It was quite a large snake and it made my mom very uneasy. Big snakes put out a certain smell. I had to really scrounge around for the money to buy mice from the pet shop to feed the thing. Beautiful snake though...

    Cory, highly talented people often get bored with the things that they learn easily and are naturally so good at. It's not like most of us that say to ourselves, "It took so long to learn this fricken thing I'm never going to quit".

    Jomo, taxis are big, and the drivers all wear dainty white cotton gloves! There is also a transport service where two people will come to the drinking establishment in their vehicle, one will drive your car home following their vehicle with you in it giving directions. They won't let you ride in your own car for some reason. Some legality issue I believe. The people doing that work are pretty patient, sometimes having to follow directions given by a very intoxicated person. Probably if they assess that the drinking person might pass out before getting them home, they won't take them. I've used that service once or twice. I dunno, it just feels weird getting driven by a stranger in a strange car and getting followed by another stranger driving your own car. It's some kind of Asian thing.

    It works because you're a highly disciplined individual, Justin. :/: It seems like that for most people, an absolute abstinence from drinking policy if they are going to drive, is what works. Of course the laws here now help to implement that policy, you get arrested practically if you have just smelled the stuff, and besides losing your license, a heavy fine is also imposed on anyone else riding in the vehicle. The cops will clean up if there is a car load full. I think it's like five grand now per individual. It's put a lot of drinking establishments out of business. Needless to say, drinking at home is big.

    I just listened to Chris Cornell when he was on the Howard Stern show. He was saying what a waste Kurt Cobain's death was and how he feels bad for the children. Now he's gone and done the same thing apparently. Go figure....

    Its an odd paradox, Jomo. Though it's illegal to grow GMO food crops in the country, Japan is a big importer of the stuff.
