I'm not often for over hunting, but the pythons need to go.

How can we get python and PHP expunged from other regions too?

Removing an invasive species isn't "over hunting".

Won't happen. People just farking love Python. Had to get a cert on it just so I could write notebooks for folks who really like to run code piecemeal...

The comment is remixing this into a somewhat bad taste BLM joke.

Perl's status changed to "critically endangered" as other languages invade its habitat
 
2022-08-07 11:37:09 PM  
Boots, belts, fried, gumbo, all sorts of things they can do with trapped snakes. No bag limits. Make it a self financed extermination.

17,000 ... since the year 2000.
There are probably 1/4 million of those farking things down there, maybe more? Most of them places people can't even get to.
Enjoy your snake hunt! But it's not making a lick of difference.

I guess what I find most interesting about the destruction of our ecosystems, is how easily people can be distracted with useless measures.

how bout a waterproof seal bomb inside a peice of chicken? one could make it fire electrically, let ol monty eat it wire and all then detonate it from a non messy distance...

The story blames all the killing of local small mammals to the Burmese Python, but it's technically the fault of stupid humans that kept them as pets and let them loose in the everglades. I'm not saying what they're doing to correct it is wrong, just saying.

I was forced to learn Python when a bunch of non-programmers bought a Django-based developers version of a CMS to run a large newspaper site in Charleston.

After learning it, getting it running and swinging their income from a $800,000 loss to a 4 million dollar profit, fired my ass.

The Aristocrats!

Lsherm: Invasive species is an invasive species.


You sure about that.

The honeybee that everyone knows and loves are invasive.

Plenty of birds too - should be eradicate the starlings and sparrows?

We have bobcats, which are genetically compatible with domestic cats, so their genetic path was already here.

I'm not sure how close a Bobcat is to a housecat.

House cats are derived from North African desert cats.

Maybe they should open the season on them for longer than ten days. Maybe also have competitions for snake cooking too, push up demand for the bastards.

Why do they want to get rid of the Philippine Peso (PHP)?  Seems some Filipinos might have a problem with this.

That is not even remotely true. White space is significant in pretty much all languages. What significance varies.

Years ago I visited the Florida Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa.  Outside there was an exhibition featuring various snakes--a large python among them.  Snake guy got the python out of its cage with the help of his comely, blonde assistant, and stretched it out so we could all see how long it was.  Somehow python got away from snake guy and bit the top of blonde assistant's head.  Nobody panicked, even with large amounts of blood leaking from pretty blonde woman.  That was until the python started wrapping itself around said assistant--then there was panic.  A few young, burly teenager boys volunteered to help the snake guy, and managed to unwrap snake from pretty assistant, but the snake wouldn't let go of her head.  They finally managed to pull the snake off the assistant's head, but the snake retained a significant patch of hair and scalp that had formerly belonged to the pretty girl.  Girl was rushed away to get some medical care.  I'm just guessing here, but I bet she never went back to the temp agency that sent her to an "easy job... Just stand there and look pretty."
