comment Snake on chest while sleeping?
@ThatIdiot: Yeah, makes sense. I am kind of a guy who would never want to be bitten by a snake, whether it is venomous or not. Yeah, you rightly pointed out about covering the snake with the heaviest cloth is the thing to do, but I doubt, if everyone can have that presence of mind as first natural reaction most of the times that one will have is panic!
