Another day in the Sun


I really don’t think I will ever get tired of waking up to another beautiful day, except when you find a centipede bigger than your hand.

 

W T F !!!

 

For those of you who don’t know what that means ask one of your kids… And this is the crazy part. These centipedes are poisonous. I swear these things are some form of mutated or radiation experiment. I am not a conspiracy theorist but this is NUTS. You really need to see these things. They are crazy big… My coworkers say these things can put you in the hospital and if you don’t get in to the hospital quick that’s it, you’re dead. I really don’t know if this is true but, I am not going to find out.

 

 

We truly are blessed to be living in such an incredible place and every day brings us new surprises. I am really glad my lovely bride didn’t see this.


BTW: that's not my hand in the picture.

  2. That is poisonous. In Jamaica they call them "forty-legs". The locals keep a cure on hand in their cupboards...a dead one in a rum bottle, with about an inch of rum in it. Apparently the rotting centipede makes an antidote inside the bottle, and you are supposed to rub it into the bite, should you get bitten. Not sure I ever want to find out...(about the bite or the cure).

  3. I found one of these in my bedroom once here in Arecibo, fun day. It was pretty slow so I think it was on its last legs...lol. From what I read on Wiki they (Scolopendra gigantic) are mostly fatal to small animals, rodents, etc but the bite will make a human very miserable. Unless you are allergic, your chances of dying are slim.
