May 21, 2007: Blood of a cobra



It's the Monday Neatorama collaboration image!



The translated caption from 20minutos.es says

Quote:
Selvaticos. Marine American drinks the blood of a cobra after an exercise of survival in the jungle in a field of training in Chanthaburi, Thailand.
Aye carumba! Zippy you never engaged in such an act, didya?

Be sure to visit our friends at Neatorama for more neato stuff all the time!

Why don't they do it with rattlesnakes instead?
Where is the WWF ?

Like a beer bong.....but tastes better.

More proof that large groups of men do unnatural things when left to their own devices. Somebody needs a Den Mother.

WWF = World Wrestling Federation - Do they do this also?

If it was really training, why aren't they all doing it rather than one volunteer?

Coz it was a dare?


Sundae  Monday May 21 12:28 PM

I think they're all queueing for their turn. You know, like at a vodka ice sculpture. One at a time please, plenty to go round.

Forget raspberry sauce at thanksgiving!


Happy Monkey  Monday May 21 02:00 PM

Yeah, the wrestlers lost the name. They're now WWE.



Gravdigr  Monday May 21 03:19 PM

The guy in the yellow shirt looks kinda sinister. Like he might be thinking "Ah, yes. My plan is working perfectly. Your soul is now mine, and you will do as I command, evil yankee pig."



Medic63  Monday May 21 10:40 PM

I'm new here, but...
The caption says they are American Marines, but check the writing on the left front pocket of the guy holding the snake. What language is that?



xoxoxoBruce  Monday May 21 11:03 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, Medic63
Notice the guy with the snake is wearing different camo. I'd assume he was a local military instructor.



Medic63  Monday May 21 11:07 PM

Oops! I was editing my post, and decided to delete it, then I saw your reply.
Thanks for the welcome!
If anyone cares, my first post asked what the writing was on the pocket of the soldier holding the snake.



Aliantha  Monday May 21 11:07 PM

isn't snake blood supposed to give you 'special powers' or something?

Maybe 'the power to be never kissed by a woman again' for example.

Poof.. it's back. If you really want it gone you can delete it again or ask and I'll kill it.

Yes it makes you "STRONG LIKE BULL "

Naw, leave it there, I'll just be more careful in the future.

LOL

No problem, I occasionally stumble down the Cellar stairs, myself.
