A well known example of execution by this method is that of the Viking warlord Ragnar Lodbrok in 865, after his army was defeated in battle by King Aelle II of Northumbria.
In common usage, "snake pit" also means an institution (such as a school, prison, hospital or nursing home) or organization led in an inept or inhumane way.
Snake Pit is based off of an old fun classic game, that you may recognize as Snake. The game is simple, but has hours of fun put into it!
To make suggestions, report bugs, or just give feedback, there is an in-game verb called 'Report' in which you fill out an HTML form and it sends me what you say, whether its a bug, a suggestion or just feedback. You can use this function if you wish to contact me and I am not in Snake Pit, or just around and you can't find me. You can also use the forums to report bugs, give suggestions, or post your feedback on the game.
Fixed a minor but important bug with savefiles.
Fixed some minor bugs, and made it so textures are MUCH easier to get. The old highest one was 500 kills, whereas the newest is 100 kills.
Added a timer to end games faster (Hiead), added an onscreen display of your length, and fixed a bug with people staying while logging out.
You may have some problems losing your savefiles about now, because I recently added in some new savefile features which should prevent cheaters from editing their savefile.
Added in more textures.
Version 25 & 26
The game is now client-side savefiles! Any server that has "Client-side server" as the status will accept your savefile. Enjoy.

Added in alot more unlockable colors, and fixed a bug with the who button.
