(KHOU Houston)   Man fleeing the Somali civil war gets attacked by an anaconda and although he escapes the snake's jaws he is left blind for two years and loses his upper lip. Kind of puts the wrong order you got today at Starbucks in perspective   (khou.com) divider line 28

Yeah, that dude's probably glad he's not me. I said NO foam, dammit.

A man from Somalia fixed up by doctors from Texas. Seems custom made for certain contingents of Fark.

Starbucks set me back $3.70. Just how much did he have to pay for his picker upper?

For a minute I thought a (new) civil war had broken out in Somalia.

Then I read TFA.

"Not long ago, a walk in public would have made 30-year-old Mohamed Abdulle self-conscious. When Abdulle fled civil war torn Somalia with his brothers at 10-years-old"...

Bad Subby. *rolls up newspaper*

Nice catch.

Sure it does subby, but I still have jury duty today so this guy should thank his lucky stars he doesn't have that problem.

So anacondas have migrated from South America to Africa now?

I fled Ohio, ten years ago, and was attacked by a "road gator", on the way to Florida. My Airstream still has scarring from that horrible day.

Still better than Ohio.

I wear glasses and have a pretty nasty chickenpox scar.

I know exactly how this man feels.

At least he won't have to worry about burning his upper lip on overheated Starbucks coffee.
How nice would that be?

mltain: So anacondas have migrated from South America to Africa now?


Yeah, I was wondering about that too. My guess would be that it was a python that was misidentified as a andaconda. That would make more sense, as andacondas like water, and probably wouldn't crawl into someone's tent.

Hint:  If you volunteer to be foreman, you get paid a LOT more than $6/Day.  Nobody will tell you that, I found out by accident because I wanted to get done in a reasonably timely manner.

Unless he had buns, hun..

When I see people freak out over little things, or better still when the woman in front of me orders a bagel and wants one side not toasted and the otherside toasted, but not too much, sort of toasted, and butter on the side, and the untoasted side topped with just a little low fat plain cream cheese on one half and regular with chive on the other half of the half, and for her coffee...

I think about having to deal with this person when the grid goes down for any considerable length of time. Not fun.

Good thing he wasn't British.

brimed03: Good thing he wasn't British.


Yeah, our anaconda's leave you blind for 3 years and take both lips.

Goddamn where'd that apostrophe come from? I blame the tea.

lol. When I did three months of one-weekly grand jury duty (ah, the stories...), we each got $15/day and the foreman got $17.50.

They are rare, because all the tigers in Africa prey upon them.

Huh.  It's different here, I got $50.00/day. (In 2006)

damn, that's badass.

really glad my life doesn't involve giant killer snakes!

I don't understand how Starbucks is still in business. Who in the hell still pays $4 for a cup of coffee these days?

Point02GPA: Starbucks set me back $3.70. Just how much did he have to pay for his picker upper?


Oh...
