Snakes on a....

...muthafuckin' paper airplane.

Our local Alamo Drafthouse in Austin held a "Snakes on a Day" endurance contest. The film was screened for 24-hours and anyone surviving all 11 or so screenings could then leave without paying for any tickets. Fines were involved for those leaving early to benefit a charity:, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of our poisonous friends and rehabilitating injured venomous reptiles.

If you bailed after the first screening, you forked over $1000. For each subsequent screening, the price was reduced down by 50%.

Had I participated, I can assure you I'd be $1000 in the hole.
