How About a Binky With That Rattle? Oh, Never Mind!

Mouthfull : Jackie Bibby, aka "The Texas Snakeman," holds in his mouth ten 2 ft. 6-inch-long western diamondback rattlesnakes for 12.5 seconds without any assistance to set a new Guinness World Record for Most Live Rattlesnakes Held In Mouth. (AFP/Tim Clary)

Scarier than the fact that this constitutes a "world record" is that somewhere along the line it occurred to someone that this might be a cool thing to do!

Just looking at that monster (the rattlesnake, I mean) is scary enough. But to put it inside your mouth really takes something more than guts!

I learn something new every day. Like the fact there are records for things like this.

Generally, though, I prefer that the learning happen without a traumatic cauterizing of the synapses. Can't always get what you want, though.
