    One event I have always wondered about happened 15 or more years ago. I was driving in the country and saw a giant rattlesnake on the road. I attempted to run it over and kill it by driving up and down that road multiple times but each attempt the snake dodged the car and stayed on the road taunting me. I found this behavior unusual for a snake as I have never seen it before so I have to wonder if the snake was possessed by a devil. I know that Devils can control animals and examples of this happen in Africa often. So what do you say? I know this sounds crazy but something kept that snake from being crushed by my car so many times I tried to run him over.

    Evan- Why would you wish to wantonly destroy one of Our Lord's creation that was not a threat to you?

    Shame on you.

    Self-preservation is not demonic.

    I had a friend who told me about experiencing a song ocularly.....after dropping half of a four way window pane.

    My point being it seems to me it may have been a matter of perception. I doubt the snake was taunting you. He was probably thinking "I wonder if that dude is possessed....he keeps running up and down this road trying to hit me".

    Not to seem dense, but I am not sure that I understand. He saw music?

    He dropped two hits of LSD. Said he spent the rest of the night watching grass in a ditch beside the road. It was the 70's and he was a Dead fan.

    I suspected but did not want to offend by mentioning the use of drugs.

    Cheers, dude.

    I don't know how to interpret this, since rabbits are high on the nom nom list for rattlers.

    ....no offense. And I wasn't implying anyone here was on drugs either. Evan's story of the rattlesnake taunting him reminded me of some of the things this friend told me ......not "friend"..... as in me...but friend... as in someone other than me.....I never did drugs.....not even without inhaling.....:cool:

    Never occurred to me that "friend" could mean you.

    That's common knowledge....Don. And if it happens in Africa it can happen here too.


    Isn't it illegal to intentionally kill snakes in the wild?

    All cats are possessed. Take Chester (please) for example. He's a temptation machine.

    How can a snake continue to avoid a car?
