RIP Snake God 

It is with a most heavy and venomous heart that I relay the news that Bill Haast, renowned snake handler, has passed away at the epic age of 100. While Haast is most known for injecting himself with snake venom every day for over 60 years, he worked tirelessly to create a range of anti-venoms by milking his serpentine friends. It is thought, that with the help of a Florida doctor, that Haast’s anti-venoms helped save more than 6,000 lives!
