Audio Herpetology

It's a term I like to use every so often... especially when dealing with these:

studio audio cable snake
Vicious critters... the cable snake


These days, these are the only snakes I've got in my house (if for no other reason than my fiancee would kill me, but not before leaving a hole in the front door that was approximately shaped like her as she fled for her life).  I'm good with that, as there's enough going on right now that I'm more than busy with things.  The snakes in the picture above 


Back in the day I happened to work with a Herpetologist.  Why would I do such a thing you ask?  Simple... I was not the biggest fan of snakes.  I wouldn't say abject terror at the sight of one, but if I could get out of the same room as one, I would do so, and do so quickly (much as I do when near a cast member from "Jersey Shore").

Now it may not make sense to you to directly confront something you dislike, or even fear, but the truth of the matter is this.  What you do when faced with an unpleasant situation goes a large way towards defining the type of person you are, and the type of person you want to be.  Too many of us never choose to face things, or to do what's hard (duh!  That's because it's hard).  When you take the time to think about it, it usually doesn't speak well to the type of people they are.  Seriously, how many people do we as a society look to and associate with true greatness?  Not many, right?  When you take a look at nearly all of them, what made them a great person wasn't so much their success... but the obstacles they had to overcome in order to make that journey.

Think about it...
