What I donít know about snakes could keep a
book-of-the-month club going for years.  Yet I have to
ask, is this really standard advice?  Thatís a sincere
question, not a rhetorical one.  My concern is this: 
I would be afraid that kicking my leg, no matter how
slight the motion or honorable my intentions, might
look to the snake like an aggressive act.  Are there
any qualifications that should be placed on this piece
of advice?  Like, "Never when a snake is coiled," or
"Not when a snake is facing you," or  "Only when well
outside of striking range?"  Thanks! -- RW
