Pictured above, a venomous snake with its head chopped off. I personally ate this snake with a delicious garlic flavored batter and then tanned his gnarly hide to make a wallet or hatband or something.

OR DOES IT?
In the course of trying to determine the address of a house fire described in a mainstream media story, I searched the 2000 block of 21st Ave. N. by driving around in the frigging dark and then I did an online search of Minneapolis property records for any clues to the precise address.
I didn't manage to turn up the address.
Allow me to point out it's very annoying when the mainstream media reports on tragic house fires but then describes the address as "the blah blah hundred block of whatever avenue north."
Like, WHAT?! Is the information...
....classified in the interest of national security? Does a Level Three Sex Offender live there and we have to protect his pervert privacy? What is this, FREAKING NORTH KOREA? Why is the media involved in actively censoring stories and failing to provide useful information?
Anyway, I didn't turn up the address of the house fire, but in the course of my search I did discover something interesting about 2008 21st Ave. N., which is one of a number of properties owned by infamous Northside slumlord Mahmood Khan.

And so the Khan empire crumbles, bit by bit and day by day.
