    Horrible, yet amazing at the same time. I wonder if there`s a use for a less potent version of that venom in treating haemophilia?

    Emmettyville, if I remember correctly, you live on the continent with the largest number of venomous creatures. Lucky you!

    (If you count Republicans, North America comes in a close second.) =^.^=

    @Squirlz4Sale, emmettyville is not actually from Australia, but from New Zealand as the flag shows (we have very similar flags so I don`t blame you for not realising). IAB has long needed the New Zealand option for countries.

    @Gametank: Thanks for the gentle correction. Out of curiosity, I just looked up the Australian and New Zealand flags on Wikipedia. They`re both beautiful flags and now I know the difference.

    @Emmettyville: Sorry for mistaking you for an Aussie!

    In other news: I`ve just learned that neither New Zealand nor Australia has squirrels. Plenty of great white sharks, but no proper squirrels. ~shudder~ In response, I will be establishing a fund shortly to raise money for the establishment of the First Gray Squirrel Colony in the South Pacific (hereafter, the FGSCSP).

    Please give generously. Aussies and Kiwis must not be deprived of squirrel cuteness any longer.

    @con_uk: >> KuKluxKlan = Democrats
    >> Vietnam? Started by Democrats, expanded by Democrats, ENDED by a Republican.
    >> Iraqi babies? You mean from the UN Sanctions, the ones the UN imposed before Gulf War I??

    Wait, leech blood sucking? Eeew that`s gross! You Europeans have even filthier minds than the Japanese...

    Vitamin K
    Not from the venom. Only specific snakes have this type of haemotoxic venom (others with haemotoxic venom prevents coagulation), and it`s not by vitamin K, rather, by thrombin activators.

    "

    No but this was in response to a query re: a natural coagulant. Which vit k is. It` plays a big part of the clotting cascade.
