In Australia VB is known as a beer. Much use of VB leaves you 
legless and useless for any serious work. Australia has several
kinds of python, one, the water python is very fast and agile in
its environment and is powerful enough to kill small crocodiles,
feral cats, foxes and dingoes. And the occasional (small) VB
user. It is sometimes mistaken for a Taipan.
