The pipe is actually called bungi. The snakes get hypnotized and they just can't help themselves. It's said it attacks their senses and they just wanna dance to it. Some like it so much they get wild when the charmer stops it.

They simply spread their hood out and display their dancing prowess to the female snake. They don't dance to other music. And one better not disturb them in their trance, coz that is when their bite can be fatal, like in minutes

In my dad's village, snake bites, if not so hard are treated in a bizarre way which noone around the world may have heard of. They catch 10 hens from the farm and put the hen's naked bum on the bitten area. Hen's colons have such sucking power that they suck the poison, and the hen dies eventually. But if the bite is so hard and tons of poison go in, then it's knife time. They cut the flesh open and someone else without any sore wound in his mouth sucks the poisoned blood out.

Oh, and, I got a new pc this week with windows 7. Anyone used this form of windows yet?

The GUI is pretty awesome and even astonishing. I am sort of annoyed with some of its characteristics, but the user interface is so pleasing

We stopped our migration to Vista at work because there were so many problems with it. Unfortunately, my dept. was the first to go on it, so we are stuck there until we move to Windows 7. So I can't wait!!

Somebody made a bad decision Vista has been continually disproved to be ineligible for corporate wide roll-out.

Everyone's pretty much still on windows xp, for it's a more durable OS, and very well built. Those who followed the vista route pretty much backed out. This is the very reason MS rushed windows 7 out. It's more like windows vista patched and importing some durability from xp, and they named it 7, in hopes that companies around the world will finally agree for corp-wide roll-outs.

I truly like windows 7, but like all bastards, I want windows xp, vista and 7 together on this new pc coz I am used to running heavy applications on the other two, and it's pretty much been adamant at not letting me partition and make way, it's been built so strongly that it's annoying.

It's a superb set-up where while I can be online on windows 7, I can simultaneously be offline on windows xp, it will behave like two systems or three

TELL me about it. Our CIO made the decision...felt that we all needed to be on it so that we matched the OS that most of the students have at home. We took a poll of our own - and only 20% of US have VISTA at home! DUMB.

CEO and CIO always form the dumb and dumber duo of many orgs

And obviously, there is a new CEO/CIO every 2 years and people wonder why, LOL.

That really is the test, whether you travel well together.

I could have done it myself, hell I set two posts for a gate just few weeks ago, and built one new gate last spring, but I sure do appreciate him doing it - without me even asking. Reminds me of that stupid thread from a few days ago.
