I like the first comment, "Dumb and Dumber"!
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Perhaps contenders for the monthly Darwin Awards?
I can just picture the scene:
"oooh ooooh my friend has just been bitten by a poisonous snake. I should pick it up and see if it bites me too."
"oooh oooh, that is sore. oooh oooh I am cleverer than my friend, I only getted bitten one time."

Would love to see what his hand looks like 2 weeks after the bite.
