This is more an example of people being aware of related news thanks to the Zeitgeist, in this case the movie, Snakes on a Plane. From the Uneasy Silence blog, which I have frequented more of late, there is a link to a Reuter report of a man releasing his pet snakes inside a bank in South Africa:
He later threatened to blow up the bank, demanded payment of 10 million rand (933,000 pounds) and eventually released what he described as his “pet” snakes in the bank, SAPA said.
Note, however, that this incident predated the commencement of ﬁlming of Snakes on a Plane. Who was ﬁrst? (Actually, the ﬁlm script was.) In which case, why, all of a sudden, were snakes in the Zeitgeist in 2004?
Plus, Flickr reveals people are doing Snakes on a Plane parties.

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
