This Just In: Australia Is Still Incredibly Terrifying

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

As winter is well on its way here in the States, summer is making its sweltering return Down Under. With summer comes a marked increase in the number of terrifying creatures that can be encountered at every turn in Australia.

Nowhere in this monster-filled country is safe -- not even your friendly neighborhood gas station. That's something that Redditor Lugozi learned the hard way.

Notice anything weird about that gas pump on the left?

Yeah...that's a python.

As one commenter pointed out, "It's only a python. He won't kill ya. He'll just give ya a little cuddle."

I'll pass.

At this point, I don't think there's anything that could convince me to move there. This is creepy, but somehow, I think Australia can do better. When that happens, I'll be sure to tell you all about it.
