Good, I hate snakes so much. I think other species can adapt.

Banana banana banana!

Sorry, it is what I hear every time I see or hear the word "ramifications".

I think its a sign of a major global cataclysm.
Snakes are historically considered harbingers of Doom.
Just like Frogs and Dodos.

I don't really understand why people have such a problem with snakes. They aren't really scary, and they are pretty cool creatures.

However, I don't live in an area with very many poisonous snakes.

I'd certainly want more snakes than mice or squirrels (assuming snakes eat small rodents) because most rodents are a menace to society. Hell, I'd rather have a snake live in my house than a colony of mice.

You'd rather have a nice rattler living under your couch than a few mice that can be dealt with some mouse traps?

I'd rather have Megan Fox live in me house.

99.9% of all species that ever lived are extinct.

We, humans, won't notice a thing unless it's related to us close enough that the species who enjoyed eating snakes die as well.

Snakes don't scare me as much as spiders. Show us an article that says SPIDERS are disappearing!!
