Snake Bites Model In Breast and Dies of Poisoning

Idle 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?

breasts 0 - snake 1. (4, Informative)

JWSmythe (446288) | more than 3 years ago | (#35510462)

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?

Re:breasts 0 - snake 1. (1)

JWSmythe (446288) | about 3 years ago | (#35582842)

    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. Well, maybe. I tolerate snakes up to 8 feet from me, and behind something solid enough for them not to come any closer.

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, marked, de-marked, enlarged, shrunk, and ... well, I'm sure I missed a few. Everything from the toes to the hair, including all the naughty bits that I really don't want to disgust anyone with.

    If you're really desperate, start searching Google for abdominoplasty, labiaplasty liposuction, mammonplasty, otoplasty, rhinoplasty, ... I can't even find a technical name for plastic surgery of the toes, or removing the 10-12 ribs, but they get done too. Between several dozen idiots, you can get a lot of facts. :)

    The most attractive ones, are very frequently the dumbest. That doesn't mean the ugly ones (on the end of the scale of still hot enough to be filmed naked) are smart. They're dumb as rocks too. Intelligent ones who recognize a quick buck to be made are equally distributed throughout, but probably only make up less than 5% of them. The worse are probably the ones who stay in the industry to feed their expensive drug habits. They'll do film gigs where they can, and then various strip clubs when they're not filming, and go from making money dancing, to "private entertainment" at the location of your choice.

    What were you asking again?

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

Re:breasts 0 - snake 1. (1)

txoof (553270) | about 3 years ago | (#35608642)

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.

Re:breasts 0 - snake 1. (2)

JWSmythe (446288) | about 3 years ago | (#35619750)

    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.

    If you want something done, if you look hard enough you'll find a doctor to do it. But hey, live in your happy little world, where you believe everything you see. If I wanted to BS you, I would have come up really good lies. The truth is weird enough.

    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 with as I wished (as long as the customers were satisfied). We gave back to the net at large, such as hosting a few distro mirrors, anti-spam services mirrors (Spamcop, and our own in-house service), sites and streaming for indie music labels, etc. Although they used "a lot" of bandwidth, it never accounted for even 1% of our total usage. What's 20 to 30 Mb/s on multiple GigE lines?

I thought the model died. Headline should be revised for clarity.

The headline is perfectly clear. Snake bites model and dies. Where's the ambiguity?

That is one ugly slapper. (1)

RockDoctor (15477) | more than 3 years ago | (#35514402)

Poor snake. It tries to improve humanity by eliminating something that horrible, and dies for it's efforts.

Sad.

Please... (3, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35516182)

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.

Re:Please... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35534878)

Exactly. The first time I saw this video posted online, there was no mention of the snake dying of silicone poisoning. It makes no sense at all. Obviously the story expanded somewhere along the way and the new 'punchline' was added.

Oral silicone not sufficiently toxic (1)

DrHeasley (1059478) | more than 3 years ago | (#35520486)

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.

Pure nonsense (1)

FridayBob (619244) | more than 2 years ago | (#35541384)

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 the girl's alleged implants. After reading this article [wikipedia.org], it seems that many implants these days contain a saline solution as opposed to a silicone gel, and even when they contain the latter it's a semi-solid substance "that mostly eliminates filler leakage." Anything else and the girl would probably have to be at least ten years older.

Actually, at first I misread the title of the story and thought the girl had died of silicon poisoning. However, in the unlikely event that an implant had been pierced and resulted in a death, I would still be more surprised if the snake had been so unfortunate. After all, in that case the snake will have made contact with only a minute amount of silicone and, as opposed to the girl, the substance would not have entered its bloodstream.

In the highly unlikely event that any silicone did get into the snake's mouth, it's unlikely that this will have caused the snake any harm. Snakes frequently and inadvertently ingest all kinds of organic and inorganic matter when swallowing meals (dirt, grit, leaves, the contents of the prey animal's stomach), but this almost never does any harm. Short of getting (or forcing) the snake to swallow an obvious poison of some sort, the only normally non-toxic organic substance I can think of that turned out to be harmful for snakes was vegetable oil, which I once heard ended up killing a specimen after it was used to make a force-feeding session easier.

Finally, if the snake did actually die afterwards, it seems to me more likely that this would be due to unrelated causes, such as a poor state of health, which with snakes and reptiles in general can often be difficult to detect until its too late.
