Work Crew Finds 18-Foot Python

http://www.msnbc.com/local/wtvj/a1167571.asp

DAVIE, Fla., 8:41 p.m. EDT April 18, 2002 - A local work crew got an unpleasant surprise Thursday when they encountered an 18-foot python on their work-site, just off the Florida Turnpike.
I don't like snakes - although some are unbothered by them. Didn't Britney Spears have one crawl on her or something during a concert? Or was that someone else? Anywho, what kind of things freak you out the most? Vote and discuss.

Snakes are one of God's most unique creatures. They are evil looking, but probably serve a good purpose I really don't know about. I have stepped on snakes, seen Moccasins floating down the creeks and my friend use to raise all kind of snakes. He kept them in one of his bathrooms. Boas and all other kinds. He is weird but a great guy. He's a whacked out Vietnam veteran but a cool guy. That crocidile guy is strange but funny. One of those deadly snakes is going to get him one day. If you play with fire you will get burned eventually.

Snakes don't bother me. Spiders do, and ghosts don't exist.

No difference IMO. (now am I expecting a PM?, hehe )

Heights don't bother me at all. In total in my life, I've been on 8 airplanes. I've also been up and down again on the world's tallest free-standing structure, the CN Tower in Toronto. I was on the Calgary Tower also and rollercoasters that keep taking you up higher and higher don't bother me either.

I don't find myself being really scared of anything mentioned.
What freaks me out is Beard Woman.

I'm not fond of heights, but I love airplanes, and if it was a real fear, I conquered it last year when I started jumping off an abandoned bridge 20 ft. up into a river. That's a rush. I would assume like a little mini-skydive. The things that scare me is complete silence and being alone and abandoned.

That was a great looking blonde python. (the snake, that is. Briteny doesn't do much for me...I guess I'm old.)
Talking about airplanes, my brother is a jump-master (for those who don't know, that means he has made over 200 combat jumps) and had taken off over 250 times before he landed. He was scared to death the first time he landed in an airplane. He thought the plane was falling apart.

I guess it's pretty freaky to be jumping!
