The Best Weapon...

...the deadliest weapon in the world is the mind of man....or a set of nailclippers..I forget exactly how that quote goes......heh..I guess it just goes to show you...where there is a will, a way may be found...

Man killed snake with nail-clippers

A 24-year-old Zambian man saved himself from being crushed to death by a python by killing it with a pair of nail-clippers.

Morgan Mulenga, from Mkushi, was attacked by the snake as he relieved himself behind a bush on his way home from selling fish in local villages.

The python coiled itself around his waist but Mr Mulenga's left arm was free and he managed to get his nail-clippers out of his pocket.

He stabbed the snake with the clippers until it was dead and then ran to the nearest village for help.

Mr Mulenga was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for serious internal injuries

That moves onto the Top 10 of Tommy's nightmares....taking a dump behind a bush, and I look down and see my arm enveloped by a large python....

I lost my "first" set of keys the middle of December. There was a whistle, for emergency attention in case of potential muggers, a very small penknife, for opening boxes with that impossible to remove tape, and a round disk "screwdriver" with four different sizes of slots around the perimeter. The most important missing element was the leather strap with a heavy-duty snap, which always was snapped around my shoulder-bag purse strap when not in use. (I can't abide having to look for my keys. My purse is only put in one spot at home.) I lost the keys after I took them off my purse to move my car, and in the confusion of not needing to move the car, didn't get them back on the purse strap securely.

I've already spent over $21 dollars for replacement parts, and may have to buy a $10 set of cheap screwdrivers, just to get the flat quarter-size disk with the four slots on it, if I can't find it by itself at the suggested Discount Auto store. I purchased an aluminum "thingy" that doesn't have to be snapped closed to hang on my purse strap, therefore can't come off accidentally.

I'm ready for a Python, any time any day!
