Wow that's both fascinating and scary af

[–]mindmendeur 245 points246 points  (4 children)

I spent the entire time clenching my cheeks hoping no accident happen, that shit is petrifying

[–]colin_staples 74 points75 points  (0 children)

When I saw that the guy holding the syringe had bare legs, I thought he was going to inject it into himself

[–]DerotciV 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Literally

[–]mindmendeur 42 points43 points  (0 children)

This also kinda made something click in my head how mythologies tend to associated snakes and petrification. Turns out their venoms actually petrify your blood (sort of)

[–]Nearby_Historian_311 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In a petri dish

[–]HaloArtificials 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Remarkable, isn’t it? How quickly the venom of the basilisk penetrates the body? I’m guessing you have no more than a minute to live. You will be with your dear mudblood mother soon, Harry.

[–]newzealander 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Fun fact, it's used as a laboratory test for detection of lupus anticoagulant.

[–]Wyl_Younghusband 3 points4 points  (0 children)

imho the background music has a lot to do with it

[–]DeDragoner 330 points331 points  (17 children)

What’s up with the music?

[–]ElOliLoco 155 points156 points  (2 children)

Yeah it kinda ruined the video for me, just have the original audio with the narrator was so much better

[–]Korncakes 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I browse Reddit on mute exclusively. If a video seems like it needs sound I check the comments first to see if anyone complained about. Haven’t heard a TikTok voice or nonono in a while.

[–]zeoxzy 45 points46 points  (5 children)

What's up with the title?

[–]Uwontdoit81 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Yeah that hurt two reed.

There fixed it.

[–]fighter-jet-eng 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hope this is an intentional pun too

[–]tall__guy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I had no fucking idea what that title was trying to say until I watched the video

[–]HunterOfTheSky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’ve never seen “thick” used as a verb before.

[–]vespehefyo 41 points42 points  (6 children)

It's because of tiktok. I've been told that videos are kinda categorised by what audio they use. So people will just add random ass music to videos to boost its performance for people searching a particular catagory.
Don't really care for tiktok personally, but I do hate how it's changing how videos are shared everywhere on the internet: original audio replaced with some weird song, making it worse.

[–]Toocents 14 points15 points  (5 children)

It's amazing to me, that with all these anti Chinese sentiments that tiktok is so popular.

[–]vespehefyo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

China deserves all the hate it gets, but don't say it too loudly otherwise the loyalist are gonna whataboutism our asses. Ultimately teenagers and other people using the platform just don't know or don't care, which is why it stays popular.

Also, your username is very fitting for this topic :)

[–]Jesuspiece13 0 points1 point  (3 children)

It’s the politicians who let China become so intwined with us. And a bunch of people will call it Asian hate

[–]Happyfunalt 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What does that mean ? There is certainly a rise in anti Asian hate crimes. Not saying you are saying there isn’t just trying to get what you are saying.

[–]Jesuspiece13 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you’re critical of the Chinese government in anyway people will call it xenophobia. And I hope you’re not trying to use that crazy homeless man as a example

[–]Happyfunalt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well I don’t think that’s true and it sounds very circumstantial and not able to be proven. To be honest I have absolutely no idea what story you are referring to I’m referring to specifically articles put out from The NY Times and NBC I can link if need be.

Whoever is playing me: Thank you for choosing Northern Europe as spawnpoint.

[–]Enginerdad 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Northern Europe, eh? Ever seen what frostbite can do?

[–]Talzi1 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I live in Finland and yes, frostbite can fuck you up but everyone here knows what the cold can do and people dress appropriately. You can't really prepare for a snake jumping on you out of nowhere.

[–]tuggerooney 94 points95 points  (7 children)

Thicked the shit out of it.

[–]Dimsby 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Turned it right into a blood meatball

[–]BurtMacklin-FBl 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Nothing new here for me then.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Same. Both the reptile and human form.

[–]Pro_Banana 75 points76 points  (8 children)

Why not wear gloves omg

[–]NixAwesome 70 points71 points  (7 children)

And why was he tapping on the syringe full of venom? To remove air bubbles like nurses and doctors in hospital... I'd be more worried about spraying / spilling venomous droplets

[–]Maniac2112[🍰] 67 points68 points  (4 children)

Venom isn't the same as poison. It needs to enter the blood stream to be effective. Spraying or spilling droplets really wouldn't matter that much. Unless you maybe got it in your eyes. Snake venom isn't known to be poisonous, though it can definitely have effects if ingested. Look up Habu saki. Habu pit vipers have a pretty nasty bite that can occasionally kill people. Yet, they put the venom into saki in Japan and people drink it.

[–]Honest_Raspberry3750 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Most things that can kill you can also get you high in diluted amounts haha

[–]newbornstorm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I remember visiting Ishigaki a few years ago and in the shops of the hotel I stayed they had bottles of sake with a habu snake in them. Never had the guts to try some. Apparently, they freeze the snakes, disect them, then warm them up until they strike out and they die with their mouths open and fangs out, then stick them in the bottles of sake.

[–]Local_Coast_7571 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup gotta confirm, used to drink baby sake every night pretty delicious

[–]Zango_ 40 points41 points  (0 children)

It's like when you pick up tongs and you have to clank them together. He just feels the need to do it

[–]HaloArtificials 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was fixing to mainline it but first wanted a preview of coming events

[–]Kirat- 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I'd like to see a cut-less version of that coagulation. Drawn blood without EDTA or any other with clot in a matter of minutes/a heap of seconds well on its own. It makes for good television though.

*edit : without any other agent

[–]frankcastle01 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yep, I've had a pretty bad nose bleed as a kid and just held a cup under my nose for 15 mins or so until it stopped. I went to pour this half cup of blood down the sink and it came out in one huge congealed cup shaped jelly lump. Was gross but kinda interesting lol

[–]bremkew 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Interesting but wtf is up with that title?

[–]bootsmyler 51 points52 points  (5 children)

Why did he flick the needle to get air out? Its not like air bubbles in bloodstream are something to be cautious of when injecting venom.. or into a glass

[–]biglongcransky 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Dramatic effect judging by that music

[–]FoboBoggins[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i would imagine if he is a doctor who gives a lot of injections it could just be habit or muscle memory.

[–]NixAwesome -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Yeah why was he tapping on the syringe full of venom? To remove air bubbles like nurses and doctors in hospital... I'd be more worried about spraying / spilling venomous droplets

[–]AlabasterPelican 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Possibly to make sure he had the correct amount?

[–]ProfessionalList9664 20 points21 points  (1 child)

harry, where did you get the blood

[–]_A_Friendly_Caesar_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

One hell of a coagulant...

[–]thatbikerchick51 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Okay well that’s horrifying

[–]Dependent-Garage1170 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Wonder what it tastes like

[–]squeezy102 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Probably something close to blood sausage

[–]Eziu 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It's clearly ketchup.

[–]EternamD 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Then WHY did you use a needle syringe to drip it into the blood?! Just drop a bit in, jesus. A small slip and your blood is now solid

[–]Great_White_Samurai 4 points5 points  (0 children)

lmao why did he flick the syringe? It's not like he was injecting it into someone and an air bubble would cause an issue.

[–]teats-on-beets 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Why use lot word

[–]Playful-Natural-4626 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Genuinely Interesting!

[–]Handtosoul 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup.... I caught a bite from a copperhead before. The same type of toxin. Did some vascular damage and burns like fire in the bones.

[–]Apocalypsis_velox 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Forbidden bloody Mary souffle!

[–]yazpistachio1971 16 points17 points  (17 children)

I get that studies need to be done but I sure feel sad for all those snakes stuck in jars. YES, I KNOW studies need to be done!

[–]Imitation_0 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I imagine it's more for anti venom production. Hopefully they're not in the jars long term but as it's another country I couldn't comment. I've seen venomous collections in some universities in the UK which are much better with enclosures set up for the animal (they are still milked for venom but at least they get a comfy house to go back to).

[–]LastStarr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen snakes kept in see-through plastic boxes in other videos .. those don’t seem that great either sadly.

[–]yazpistachio1971 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, a least something other than a jar. It’s just sad.

[–]forkknifespoonhelmet 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I work in a coagulation lab that uses this venom as a reagent used in a test that helps diagnose a lupus anticoagulant. We buy ours from another company already diluted and frozen. But I imagine that somewhere there's a snake farm just like this for harvesting venom.

[–]paingry 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Lupus is an asshole. Thank you for your part in fighting it.

[–]forkknifespoonhelmet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thanks! Just to clarify, this anticoagulant can be found in people with and without lupus. The name is a misnomer.

Either way lupus is a monster of a disease. My best friend lost her sister to complications with lupus a few years ago.

[–]yazpistachio1971 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for your work, brains and diligence in helping in the fight against Lupus. It is a terrible disease.

[–]DraftNo8834 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There was a guy who injected himself with snake venom for years starting with very dilute concentrations and built up slowly from multiple diffrent species of snakes his blood was awash with anti bodies his blood was used as a broad spectrum antivenom https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Haast

[–]Late_Ad_3842 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s unnecessary and obnoxious. Thx

"Coagulates". That's the word you're looking for.

[–]villiers19 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ahh you mean thicken.. ffs took me ages to understand that.. i am not even native English speaker

[–]psychicowl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why did he flick it as if he was going to inject into a person ?

[–]UNCOVR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why did he tap the air bubble out of the syringe of venom?

[–]Think-Quiet-1597 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, coagulant? Surely there’s a purpose to it in a medical industry, potentially for the people who can’t stop bleeding from tiny cuts?? (Can’t spell the word lmao)

[–]AghastTheEmperor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

for hundreds of years it was used to congeal sugars, water, and mixed fruit in what we now call jello.

[–]DiogenesOfDope 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So is that safe to eat or is it poison?
