Someone realized they didn't want a pet snake.

The comments are full of rat snake advocates, even posting links to their FB group. Takes all kinds I guess.

That's awesome Freddy. I've been obsessed with ancient history lately. Currently listening to Dan Carlin's King of Kings podcast (about the Persian Empire)... So damn good. It's incredible just how much we have been able to glean about such a distant time.

It's also crazy how much of that history the Greek historian Heroditus recorded. Even if he did exaggerate in spots

I went to law school in Minnesota and have never heard of 'spark of life' doctrine as it's used in the Chauvin trial. They were allowed to bring in character evidence about Floyd. The AP article below says it may have backfired on them.

Just thought it was amusing the prosecutor is using a similar tactic that message board posters do; lets look at the victim and whether or not they might've deserved it.
