Ok snakes, love em or leave em. Personaly for me they are amazing creatures and 1 of natures finest hunters but as long as they stay away from me im
Researchers writing in the bioligy journal Biology Letters have found that the snake population has dropped, dramatacly. Even up to 90% in some
Here is a snippet from the news source at the BBC.
"Researchers examined records for 17 snake populations covering eight species over the last few decades, and found most had declined markedly.
For reasons that are not entirely clear, some populations shrank in number abruptly around 1998.
Writing in the journal Biology Letters, the researchers describe the findings as "alarming" but say much more work is needed to understand the
"This is the first time that data has been analysed in this way, and what we've shown is that in different parts of the world we seem to have this
steep decline in a short period," said project leader Chris Reading.
"It surprised us when we realised what we were looking at," he told BBC News.
"And we don't have a clue what it was about that period of time (around 1998)."
So whats this with 1998? If there is not a conspiracy behind this of some sort then im going to damn make sure i make 1.
So lets take a look at 1998 according to Wikipedia
"1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year that started on a Thursday. In the Gregorian calendar, it was the 1998th year of the Common Era, or of Anno
Domini; the 998th year of the 2nd millennium; the 98th year of the 20th century; and the 9th of the 1990s."
Ok so if we take 1998 or 1+9+9+8= 27, then 2+7=9. And the year 1998 was on the edge of the 3rd millenium so this would signify 999 or otherwords if
turned upside down 666
But that is not all because 9+9+9 = 27 and 2+7= yes 9.
So there you have it, i have in true ATS style proved a major conspiracy against the snake population by none other than "The-Antichrist/snake"
On a more seriouse note according to the study they beleve this could be due to extreme weather patterns like El Nino's (January 4 – January 10 –
A massive winter storm, partly caused by El Niño, strikes New England, southern Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick). And on the completly insanse
irrelivent side i noticed in 1998
January 6 – The Lunar Prospector spacecraft is launched into orbit around the Moon, (spaced based antin snake weapons)?
January 26 – Lewinsky scandal: On American television, President Bill Clinton denies he had "sexual relations" with former White House intern
Monica Lewinsky. (snake is also representitive of a penis or a cigar if you do not have a penis).
February- The United States Senate passes Resolution 71, urging U.S. President Bill Clinton to "take all necessary and appropriate actions to respond
to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." (nuff said)
February 10 – Voters in Maine repeal a gay rights law passed in 1997, becoming the first U.S. state to abandon such a law. (penis thing again, this
time no cigars).
February 23 – Florida El Niño Outbreak ****
February 23 – Osama bin Laden publishes a fatwa, declaring jihad against all Jews and Crusaders (are snakes cosiderd Jewish)?
May 26 – Bear Grylls, 23, becomes the youngest British climber to scale Mount Everest. (ahh bear Grylls, the enemy of the snake).
I could go on but i will leave it to the members of ATS to try to decipher what happend in 1998 that started to
lead to the demise of the snake.
i will leave you with a few pictures of our scaley friends. Goodnight
