Living In A Room With 40 Venomous Snakes

If your roommates bite, take solace that at least they're not venomous unlike those of David Jones. The 44-year-old British carpenter is trying to break a world record by sharing a room for four months with 40 of the world's most venomous snake:

We found him sitting in front of a laptop computer, updating his website (www.snakeman.co.za) and contemplating making a cup of tea, though that would require some care, since a cobra had taken up residence in the cupboard with his tea bags.

"I had a cobra try to strike at me the other day, while I was making a cup of tea." [...]

His roommates include puff adders, snouted cobras, boomslangs and green and black mambas. "Collectively they are very, very dangerous. They would all put you in hospital. And untreated most of them will kill you," he said.

Shouldn't suicidal people be locked up for their safety. If he just wants attention I hope they don't waste any valuable antivenom on him.
