And they say love is dead. You know how they say “till death do us part”? Well this guy took that saying as gospel. He woke up to find out he had been bitten by a venomous snake went “well, shit” realizing his time was coming to an end, and tried to bring his wife along with him. You can’t knock the guy for following his vows to the letter. Women are always talking about guys with commitment issues and here comes prince charming, biting his wife, in hopes of taking her hand to the pearly gates. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is.
Sadly for this wanna be Romeo, his bite was for-not. As it turns out, venomous snakes are not like vampire bats, in that you gain the ability of the creature that bit you. As our friend Shankar Rai was unable to transfer over the venom that entered him, into his wife.
Side Note: The craziest part of this story, is that the guy just woke up and accepted his death. He knew he had been bitten by a venomous snake, he’s seen this shit before, and threw one last hail Mary. I wouldn’t be surprised if we found out he was just trying to equal out the venom like the infinity stone in ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’. But once he got caught, he went with the whole “love” angle. This just goes to show why I will never go to a REAL foreign country.
My biggest worry currently, is leaving the door unlocked, having the wind blow it open, only to wake up to a raccoon nibbling on my toes. I can’t imagine being in a place where a snake can just bite you in the middle of the night like some venomous tooth fairy and kill you without you even having a punchers chance.
