    I got this in an email today.

    The story goes: A person was driving to work at highway speeds when he/she heard a very loud pop in the engine bay and pulled over. Thinking it was a flat tire, they pulled over. After popping the hood, it became immediately obvious what was wrong. A co-worker saw the owner of the vehicle on the side of the road and stopped to help out. The co-worker that stopped had a camera on hand and snapped the pictures below.(photograph evidence of why the owner of the vehicle was going to be late to work)

    OH! I've seen that before!

    I should try to find the picture of the moose and the Jetta. There were no winners.

    I would have been trying to kill a dead snake for snapping one of my belts and screwing up my engine bay. Oh and refusing to get back in the car... just in case there was another:shock:

    That's aweful! Poor snake...

    And I don't mean to cause an issue or anything, but I thought I read a comment from you on a recent thread that had a posted image of road kill, and I hathered that you were opposed to such photography...? I find these images much worse, seeing as the snake is being burned alive,rather than what I asume is a quick death for small road kill...

    Please don't get me wrong on this, I'm not trying to offend, just figuring out where you stand...
