Two heads are always better than one.

Darn, to think that we're wasting our son's tuition money at Ball State...

"Two-Headed Rattlers" would be a good team ninckname... a quick look at the San Angelo webpage told me their womens teams are the 'Rambelles' which is either a ram with gender issues or a movie where a Sylvester Stallone character, disheartened by the treatment of Vietnam veterans, undergoes a sex change.

in my younger, singler days, i used to "scour for interesting specimens", too.

but, never under rocks.

of course, considering some of the things i brought home, my mom would disagree.

I went to Angelo State back in the early 80's.

You can get a degree there in Animal Husbandry.. (which I did NOT, btw, I was a computer geek)

The sheep always looked panicky...

"...although the left head seemed to be the more dominant."

So Rush Limbaugh is right, after all...

In fact, it was lethargic and refused to eat so he euthanized it.

Remind me not to nod off in that guy's class.

Goshdarnit! The mysteries of life are being solved for me, finally!

Q: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
A: Three (well established by the commercial media).

Q: What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?
A: Forty-two (thanks, Douglas Adams!).

Q: How many rocks do you have to turn over to find a two-headed rattler?
A: 400 to 500. (Chris McAllister, a visiting professor of biology at Angelo State University in San Angelo, said he found the snake after turning over 400 to 500 rocks last month at a Christoval-area ranch, where he and students were scouring for interesting specimens.)

With all these important, life changing questions answered...I'm not sure what's left.

Euthanize (v): to cut into small pieces with a shovel

McAllister discovered it had two hearts, two gall bladders, two tracheae and a divided liver.

"They're very important in controlling the rodent population," said McAllister, who was hospitalized for a week in 1996 after being bitten by a rattler. "They're an important part of the ecosystem."

Divided livers are an important part of the ecosystem?
