After watching a very fun playoff game this afternoon (YAY SKINS!), I decided to take it easy tonight and just hang out and watch TV and keep catching up on all the fabulous gadgety goodness coming out of CES coverage that I couldn’t read whilst my comp. was in the shop.
But then, I read a weird story title on Fark: “Farkette’s friend has daughter’s 7′ Boa Constrictor stuck in dashboard of her Subaru Wagon. Difficulty: Boa has eaten recently and has no reason to leave. Any suggestions for removing Boa intact so friend can drive home? Details in thread.”
That was bizarre enough to pique my interest, so I went to the thread and ended up reloading the page once every half hour or so for the rest of the night, reading about the continuing saga of Chester the Boa Constrictor.
I’d say read the first 50 posts to get an idea of what’s going on and some of the suggestions people made, the rest are all basically duplicates, but some of them are damn funny.
And as of right now, they still haven’t managed to get the Boa out of the car yet, and the woman who’d been posting updates went to bed. But damn, that’s an amusing way to kill time.
