Snake Bites Model In Breast and Dies of Poisoning 25

f1vlad writes "A snake that bit model Orit Fox in the breast has died of silicone poisoning." It seems almost impossible to me that the boa's teeth could have gotten deep enough to hit the implant but The Daily News, Breitbart, and many other sources say it happened so it must be true, right?

    Read a little more about the incident [livescience.com]

        Really, for those who know much about the breast implant procedures, they'd know that the silicon is not just under the skin. A boa, if not defanged, would have fangs that are maybe 1cm (0.3") long. Since she apparently didn't have any blood dripping, nothing pierced the skin.

        Now for the NSFW portion of this message.

        Here is a comparison of subglandular breast implants to subpectoral breast implants [aestheticare.com]. ... and the full page, with more illustrations. [aestheticare.com]

      Here is a doctor talking about the subglandular implants (over the muscle) [psinteractive.net]

        As you should be able to spot from the first link, there is skin and fatty tissues that would have been thicker than the fangs are long, regardless of the implant type. Consider it's a constrictor and not a viper.

        Also, the snake would have bitten to scare its attacker. It didn't like the way it was being handled. If it thought she was lunch, it would have curled up with her for a nice long nap. When biting, it wouldn't have been sucking.

        If it did die, it was most likely treated like most animals who attack humans. It was put down. Maybe she and the station demanded it. Maybe the trainer just said it was put down.


    • Who would have expected one guy on Slashdot could be an expert in both breast implants and herpetology?
      • Well, an expert in breasts. 8 years working in the adult entertainment industry can teach you an awful lot. Well, more than you'd ever want to know. Really. I don't recommend it to anyone, unless you want to have a jaded view on the world. Well, I guess working that long in customer service could do the same thing. :)

        Snakes? Well, I hate them, almost to a degree of phobia. It's good to know your enemy. Understand them. Rationalize them. Then you can work it out. Wel

          Please...elaborate on your 8 years in the 'industry'!!!

          video? What did you do? Why does it give you a jaded view on the world, seems like one of the best jobs in the world for a guy!!!

          • Ya, it would seem like something fun. Until the reality hits you. Conversations between the girls revolve around fingernail polish, clothes (even though they're usually not wearing any at the time), PMS, and pop-culture things that I could do without hearing. There are plenty of discussions about body mutilation, which can include stupid piercings, tramp-stamp tattoos, and of course plastic surgery to satisfy their own insecurities. Everything (and everything) that can be cut, poked, mark

            • Surely you'd have made out with at least one of those ladies. Or is this part of the reason for your jaded outlook?

              I was with you until you started talking about rib removal. That's been debunked [snopes.com] over at Snopes. That comment sort of throws a bad light over the rest of your post. Though, I don't doubt that working in the adult entertainment industry does suck some of your soul away.

              • Actually, that Snopes debunking is in relation to specific celebrities. It can and does happen. It only took a quick Google search on "Rib removal surgery". The second link is for Dr. Aaron Stone [aaronstonemd.com] in Los Angeles, who does do the surgery. The third link is the Snopes article you mentioned, and then the fourth link is to the Wikipedia article [wikimedia.org] referencing the procedure. I know, Wikipedia is the weakest evidence you can possibly provide, but still.

          Good sir, what are you doing on this website? Are you lost?
          (well, I suppose they needs 'techies' too...)

          • Someone has to run the servers and network that will support you millions of perverts ^H^H^H^H^H^H users. Our network was one of the first in most facilities, to need GigE connections, and our bandwidth was high enough to compare to the Mae-East graphs (when they were public) and be able to say we were responsible for 10% of their aggregate utilization. :)

            I haven't worked there in several years. The only thing I miss is my well tuned server farms, and massive bandwidth to do

    • I thought the model died. Headline should be revised for clarity.
  • Poor snake. It tries to improve humanity by eliminating something that horrible, and dies for it's efforts.

    This was on The Daily What a few days ago and proven to be false. Apparently someone made a snarky comment in a news article on an entertainment site about how the "snake died of silicone poisoning" and the traditional news outlets, instead of checking their facts, ran the story as if the comment was vetted. It's not, the snake is alive and slithering.

  • You could probably drink it. Outside of some diarrhea, it'll go right through you. Best guess is that they beat it do death in revenge and used the silicone story as a coverup.
  • The story is pure nonsense. Boid snakes (boas) may have relatively long teeth compared to colubrids (typical snakes), which come in handy when catching and holding on to flighty prey, (especially birds), but they will not have gone deep enough (perhaps a few millimeters at most) to reach any silicone breast implants, which are typically placed subglandularly. I'm not even sure if the teeth would be able to pierce an implant if the snake's head had been mashed onto her breast.

    Then there's the question of

  • ... but i still don't understand... which of both animals has died? The ugly one or the reptile?
  • What was this ugly girl trying to do with that snake ?

    She looks really DUMB.

  • damn, I was hoping the bimbo died from snake poison, not the snake from bimbo poison. :(
