The best snake can play bass guitar. A snake, w/o fingers, can play bass. Come on, man, that's the best one.

Metal gear was the wonkiest POS I ever played. If it wasn't for Nintendo Power magazine I never would have got as far as I did. I heard they did a remake on one of those new type consoles. Bet it crashed and burned, never to be heard from again. It's probably pretty obscure at this point.

I'm going to go with solid, given that all the liquid likely burned off.

What's this Snake Plissken nonsense all about? How about the guy who killed a snake with a nuke?

Ran a skating rink in West Point, about 45 minutes SE of Richmond..  power blinked a few times, I went outside to look around, and the whole sky lit up east of my location, and power was gone.. knowing there was a power substation there, went to check it out.. got there as a service truck showed up ( guy lived nearby) and watched him use a hotstick to poke at something.. turned out to be a snake..  remnants indicated that it was a blacksnake, about 7 ft long.. 5 ft of it was pure carbon.. a very black blacksnake.. had no weight to it at all..crawled across two insulators to get 34.5 kv.. the extreme brightness was the carbon snake becoming a 'filament' without the bulb...

Plissken? You should see a doctor about that.

How do they know the snake was single?

If this happened today, we are looking at probably 95 or above and about 30 to 50% humidity. Not the kind of weather you would like to be losing AC in. I have heard very little blackout news in Japan despite their concerns about hot weather. They told everybody that they needed everyone to cut their power consumption by 5% or whatever, and people probably cut 10% off. I have not used AC yet, just a dehumidifier switching on and off intermittently. Giving 5 kW solar to all my neighbors so they can chill.

Muddling through, as usual. Snakes notwithstanding.

I have been doing arboreal work. The weather is not too bad if you are under canopy

Liquid Snake is best snake because he's also Leonardo who leads while Donatello does machines.

The three main states of matter - solid, liquid, and plissken.
