I was on a retreat with my youth group this weekend and i heard this story from one of the kids there. it was so far-fetched that i had to post it. no wonder people hate snakes. "When you're sleeping in the dessert you have to be careful because anacondas will try to eat you. If an anaconda is trying to eat you remain completely still. They eat you from the feet first, I don't know why, but they always do. When the anaconda gets to your waist, slowly remove your knife (like you would be sleeping with a knife ) and put it in its mouth. Slice the top of the mouth and the anaconda is dead." Uneducated people get on my nerves.
