    I suppose I should appologise for my country. This crap is deplorable. Its not even for purpose really, mostly for show. And, just for the record, in most of America, you can't "bring your shotgun and blast the **** out of any rattlesnake that you ever come across." At least not legally. That, for the most part, is Texas. We definitely have more than our share of idiots, and most of them work in the media. Anything for ratings and crowd control.

    No need to apologise for your country mate. Unfortunately arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand (as well proven in mmafan's post) and when states are entirely self-governing, or near enough, it only takes one boot scooting hillbilly who appeals to enough ill bred, semi literate yokels to become elected then allow practices that would make a large portion of the country hand their heads in shame.

    Actually The Bible never says that snakes are evil or bad.
    Acording to the acount in Genesis Satan manifests himself in the Garden Of Eden in the form of a snake.
    The snake in itself is not evil, although many have interpreted it to be.

    In other parts of the Bible a snake is actually used as a symbol of healing and a
    'Type' or 'figure' of the Messiah. Interestingly, this is lesser known.

    I don't meant to be 'preachy', just thought it interesting to mention. :-)

    Yeah I was being sarcastic...especially since I bashed the idiots who participate in these type of events on the 1st page of this thread...But damn I'm sensing some Anti-American feelings in this thread lol.

    And for the record I don't think America is any more/less "free" than any other western democracy...and I don't know nearly enough about the subject to make a statement on it either way....


    As for Texas...Well the state does produce outstanding Governors lol..You got to give them credit for that

    I'm not familiar with the laws on killing rattlesnakes...But I'm quite sure one could just yell "It was attacking my family dur de dur" and get away with putting some lead into any snake they come across....even in the most wildlife friendly states...

    I did not pick up the sarcasm so, um, sorry.
    Americans do, however, produce idiots and some are exceptional idiots. I have no idea of the percentage of Americans who are world class idiots but I suspect it is only a tiny but obvious minority. I could be wrong though, following American politics at the moment does not engender hope for the American people.

    PS Almost all Americans I have dealt with are warm friendly people.

    I'm sorry man, I actually bought that last statement And you are right, if someone killed a rattlesnake in thieir house or yard, near their family, just out of ignorance of better safe options, noone would fault them, not even me. It's the showtime thing gathering them up and slaughtering them that kills me.

    I am american, but my father was British, traveled, I have half siblings in the UK, and in Cananda. I'm not claiming to be wordly by any means, but I do enjot conversing with people from all over, kinda keeps me grounded. And yes, we do produce some spectacular idiots. But I think everyone does, the difference here is they are louder and encouraged. It is a minority, but I wouldn't call it tiny unfortunately, and the vast majority are too complacent to give much fight about it, and just let them go on. That pretty much sums it up. As for American politics, well, that's a whole seperate subject. Seems to be, if a politician goes against the herd, they either get gathered back in by the handlers, or trampled by a stampede. I am actually ashamed to talk to anyone else in the world about our political system, So I'll stick to pythons...
