Damn near stepped on a black snake just now.

I jumped a mile back and he hit the road. That's today's excitement! What's yours?

Dealing with my laptop. I believe it had a huge buildup of static electricity. It completely died two days ago, even the charging light wouldn't turn on, and kept making a very low but audible static crinkling sound.

And this morning, I guess electricity was discharged as I saw and heard a spark, followed by the charging light turning on and a slow booting up processing. Thankfully it's still under warranty lol never had anything like this happen.

[@761112,deadgerbil] Whew that was a close call! Sounds like god is on your side today!

[@717388,GaiusJuliusCaesar] ikr. I'm glad that it's operating normally. Imma play some games later and put it through its paces

This was the screen that was presented to me when it started up earlier

[@761112,deadgerbil] Aw man, that is foreign to me. I hope my laptop never goes through something like that. I'd be rather upset

What kind of snake?

[@549497,uncleshawn] Cobras, hey? That would be scary. I don't know what it is about snakes that make them so creepy. Oh damn, a bear would be much more preferable

[@717388,GaiusJuliusCaesar] Snakes seem very smart and evil....something like they hate you and want to kill you for fun, even though in reality they keep their distance from people if they are able to.

[@549497,uncleshawn] Hahaha yes they look like nasty fuckers. Couple of summers ago, this massive black snake used to hang around the front porch. I was out there smoking, and he crawls up the rock wall directly behind my head and just sits there, hanging out with me. I think he was sucking out my soul or something. I couldn't move fast enough

They always startle the f out of me too, even though they are harmless, scream like a girl, look around, yup, nobody heard me, carry on

[@895143,tddyd9] I left him waaaaaaaaaay over on the other side of the house to do whatever it was he was doing before I walked up on him. Live and let live!

Uh, that might’ve been me

[@526179,TurtlePink] What, the snake? Noooo, I wouldn't have jumped if I had run across a hot lady
