Yes it's true. Happy (kinda') Friday!


he staff at a Downriver pet store are asking for help identifying a man who stole a python.

On Wednesday, March 20, someone wandered into the I Love My Pets store in Rockwood, Mich. and scooped up the 4-foot adult ball python out of its case.

In a story full of euphemisms, there's a video to compliment the illegal actions. On tape, a dark-haired man in a blue shirt and jeans can be seen shoving the reptile down his pants, before exiting the store.

"The staff at I Love My Pets are in disbelief...someone stole our beautiful ball python who had just been adopted and was going home that same day he was stolen," wrote Emily Scheiwe on Facebook.

Sessions

"That's the problem with being implacable foes - no one has any incentive to treat you as anything more than an obstacle to be overcome."

Are you familiar with the British slang term "one-eyed trouser snake"? I'm certainly grateful to learn the synonym "ball python".

I guess he needed a pair.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

— Carl Sagan

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.
