[[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…)
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.
