    With all those snakes in one place, was your business actually the Well of Souls? Because I think we know the culprit.

    I guess sometimes count out Touchdown Tom.

    It is likely this will get a mention within the letter.

    She knows the loss. I hope things can heal.

    Oh my holy shit.

    Boomer, I'm so sorry to hear this. For you, the animals, your bosses. Damn.


    As a side note, however: Did you really work at a reptile place and once in awhile drive there in a Jurassic Park Jeep? Because now I love you even more.

    I'm so sorry. I think snakes and lizards are awesome, beautiful animals, and this is so sad.

    I truly hope the business can rebuild, because people need to have more clean, sustainable, humane places to get their awesome pets, not fewer.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    That...is a lot of dead animals.

    They're all lounging in plastic containers in heaven, now. And possibly boning.

    Man they're firemen, if there had been a smouldering yet alive and concious grizzly bear in that pet shop, one of those dudes would have carried it out.

    D: Jesus Christ I hope I never end up working at a fire like that.

    I mean

    damn.

    Hope things work out for you, dude.

    Merciful Lord, that is horrible.

    Just to see that image of the shop, with dozens of little compartments each with a reptile container in it with it's own reptile. And then seeing that same room, reduced to an ashen ruin.

    My heart goes out to you, Boomer. That is just... brutal.

    Jesus, that's just terrible. I've never really been a snake person but I wouldn't want them to burn either.

    Is there any suspicion of foul play at all? Or is it too early to tell?

    There's just this nagging feeling like some PETA nut decided to set the fire to "free" the animals.

    considering PETA euthanizes about 85% of the animals they "rescue" that really wouldn't surprise me

    God, this is terrible.

    And then I thought about the firefighters being told they were going into a burning building filled with snakes, and I laughed for a second. Which is probably awful of me.

    Seriously, though, this is terrible.

    This is such a crazy doublespeak way to live a life that part of me thinks PETA is made up of space lizards who crave mammalian spinal fluids

    Wow, this is a real huge downer to read in the morning. Not that it can compare with actually working at and raising all those snakes and lizards. fffffffffffff

    Don't accept centrism. Don't let them bully you.

    As humor is a coping mechanism, I feel fine in saying I laughed more than a bit at that.

    Not to lessen the impact of all the animals dying, but there's also the issue of whether the dude still has a job if there's no place to have a job.

    Are you gonna be okay, Boomer?

    I'm still struck by the fact that the Jurassic Park Jeep Guy works in a reptile shipping establishment.

    I know, fucking weird how it worked out.

    For the time being it looks like my job is stable. Which of course comes with some degree of survivor guilt, since I've only been with the company for a few months. I haven't really lost any investment. Robyn and Chad though... man. I can only imagine what this must be like for them.

    You tell 'em I'm postin'! And Hell's postin' with me!
