For a minute, I thought Michael was doing his usual, "Try the local cuisine" thing...

Oh dear, that sounds interesting. My computer is having emotional problems with me at the moment and doesn't feel that I deserve to see your link.

Just Google the headline & you'll come up with lots of papers that carried the story. Some of them have a picture of it, too... Ewwwwww.... Glad it wasn't Michael!

Eee! It sent shivers down my spine! Let that be a lesson to other pythons! Can you imagine the indigestion, if the python had lived!

Imagine the indigestion if the alligator had lived.
This is utterly irrelevant to anything, but it sure isn't worth it's own thread. If anybody listens to "Talking Point" on the BBC World Service on Sunday, and if everything goes to plan, you'll have a chance to hear one intrepid caller trying painfully to be articulate about "Turkey and the EU" and breaking the land record for the most "um"s in 30 seconds.

On edit- scratch that, I've been pre-empted. They're doing the earthquake in Kashmir. My position on earthquakes, by the way, is 'against'.

Thanks for the pictures Bruce the computers here at work are also fairly temperamental. You have to admit that is one brave python. I've tried Crocodile before but it was only a small piece and hopefully it was dead first!
