[[A man with wet hair and a towel around his waist thinks with his hand to his chin.]]

Man: (What situations might I prepare for? 1) medical emergency, 2) dancing, 3) food too expensive…)

[[Close-up on man’s face.]]

Man: (Okay, what kind of emergencies can happen? 1)A) snakebite, B) lightning strike, C) fall from chair…)

[[Still thinking…]]

Man: (Hmm. Which snakes are dangerous? Let’s see… 1)A)a) Corn Snake? b) Garter Snake? c) Copperhead?)

[[Sits down in a chair with a laptop, still wearing towel.]]

Man: (The research comparing snake venoms is scattered and inconsistent. I’ll make a spreadsheet to organize it.)

((Bottom panel is larger than top four, and aligned to right.))

[[A woman meets the man on his front stoop. She is carrying a purse, and looks down at his towel. The man holds his arms in the air triumphantly.]]

Woman: I’m here to pick you up. You’re not dressed?

Man: By LDsub50, the Inland Taipan has the deadliest venom of ANY snake!

Caption: I really need to stop using depth-first searches.
