I wrote the article partially a while back, when I first heard about the movie, and no amount of hype has changed my mind. Snakes aren't frightening. Sure they hurt. Sure they can kill you. Maybe I have seen too many Crocodile Hunter shows where Steve Irwin grabs one by the arse and swings it around with out coming to harm, but I don't have the least bit of fear for them.
Good god most snakes are more scared of you than you are of them. They only strike when forced to, usually they just run. I have heard that there is an exception to this rule, but that snake doesn't live where I do, so I really don't care.
So the idea of a terrorist putting snakes on a plane to take out a specific person, is laughable. I mean at best, he would win the Most Retarded Terrorist Attack EVAH award.
