Just a couple things going on in my head…
1. There is a guy catching cobras near Nong Khai that can’t tell what a monocled cobra is, versus a King Cobra. He has two of them setup in what appears to be a nice big enclosure for them. How does someone catch cobras and yet not know what kind are being caught? There are cobras here that spit in your eyes 2-3 meters away and fark up your eyes REAL good. You could literally go blind. Could he tell that kind of cobra from 2-3 meters away?
I’m not mentioning any names of course, it just make me go – WTF – real loud when I got the photo of a cobra with a monocle on the back hood – VERY clearly – and he asked whether I knew if it was a King cobra.
People catching snakes that can kill them in 10-30 minutes shouldn’t be asking those questions I think.
What do you think?
2. On the same road that I saw a brain laying on – I’m assuming human, I saw 3 accidents today. WTF? I went over 2 years without seeing one accident where I live. As soon as I travel on this road to Nakhon – bang – accidents all the time. It’s strange.
3. I saw my first Thai person with obsessive compulsive disorder. She was selling me something and counted the money, recounted the money, wrote down my purchase, wrote down my discount, did it all again, did it again. Did it again. And, did it two more times before I left. You don’t usually see people with OCD in Thailand. I see them much more often back in the states.
4. This wasn’t today – it was 1-2 nights ago. Nights are running together now, not enough sleep. I went into the garage. There was a snake hanging out of the ceiling. It was exactly the same size and type of snake that I have in a plastic container that I got a few days before. EXACTLY. I have never seen another snake of that size – baby – about 15 inches long – before in Thailand. And I look OFTEN.
I checked my container – and there it was. I looked up at the ceiling – and there it was. WTF? Cool, we’ve got Golden Tree Snake babies at the house! I tried to catch it but he saw me coming and pulled up into the crack in the ceiling.
You got any WTF”s you want to share?
