Here's a new addition to my family. A female Central American Boa. She's about 18 inches right now.

Boas are great,in college,I had a friend that was a boa collector.
I was a gecko collector,so at least we could loan each other 'pinkie mice'.--- http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Wait,that sounds "odd",to say the least. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

if i ever get another snake itll be a emerald tree boa or something similar. something that stays small. <div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Just out of curiosity, in IL-2 I've never seen crews bailing out while plane is still in movement/augering during crash landing. In this occasion they jumped/dropped off just before 110 came to a halt. They never ran, program doomed them?

I landed a burning TB-3 once (ran out of fire extinguishers), I pressed the bail-out key, the crew proceeded to jump out and fall to their deaths one by one. Died like lemmings they did, a little heap of them under the A/C. They only fell about 10ft.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The AI aircrews, being the geniuses they are, will do that every time. Kind of amusing to watch them jump out of a rolling wreck then get run over by it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Slightly OT, but I've been killed by that non-intuitive bailout thing myself. I bailed to avoid getting strafed, and ran straight into the path of my wingman who was landing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

The stupid part was that I had taxied off the strip already, but the 'cartoon me' ran straight back into the middle of the concrete and lay down. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I didn't die but last night I crash landed on a beach. I bailed out and instead of staying on land, "I" ran strait for the water, inflated my boat and jumped in. I thought it was pretty funny.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Crashed landed in a DO335 the other day. I survived, but feared the plane would erupt in flames, so hit the bail out key. Bad idea...

That TB-3 story reminds me of a movie somebody around here created 2 or 3 years ago. Can't remember the title but the whole movie was just miscellaneous expertly created crash sequences: a 109 rolling backwards down a mountain, a TB-3 crew bailing out and all dying where they lay in a pile, planes landing on top of each other, etc etc.. I can't remember the title but I do remember it made good use of the theme song from "*******".<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I landed hard once online and bailed just as another guy in a mosie was landing , I ran right through his left engine and kept goin. He just rolled over due to the loss of the wing and blew up . It was freaking hilarious. And it has always bugged me that they bail out even though they're bouncing down a beach at 80mph<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
