brain worm

Oh, great, now neurosurgeons have to be entomologists
Dr. Peter Nakaji told KSAZ-TV in Phoenix that his patient's MRI looked clean at first, but she still had the unexplained blurred vision and numbness, so he looked more closely at the Image, then decided to open her up. In the deepest part of the brain was a worm. Hey, stuff happens. Maybe undercooked pork, maybe stray fecality. (Bonus: On the video of the surgery, Dr. Nakaji, upon encountering the worm, is heard to chuckle.) KSAZ-TV

Alex beat you to this yesterday Chuck 😊 Brain worms are very interesting, to me at least, but the worste one (get ready for this guys) is the parasite that lives in water and can swim up your stream of urine into your urethra. It has spines too.Ăº

If you ever look up candiru on YouTube, I challenge you to keep following the relatede links on the right-hand side. Nature is seriously out to get us.

kingmonkey, that sounds like a challenge that will have to wait until I get home this evening. And, yes, nature is out to get us. :gulp:

Brain worms, Piss Stream Parasites....What's Next Bed Bugs?

Well, since you did ask, avmayes614 - PINWORMS!

"Pinworms are tiny, white, thread-like worms that live in the rectum. The worms crawl out of the anus (bum) at night and lay their eggs on nearby skin". According the article, Pinworms can be unpleasant and uncomfortable, but they do not cause disease. That is some comfort I suppose. They are very common in children and spread easily among children in child care.

I have a mental image of two Pinworms sitting on the event horizon of one of my butt cheeks while I sleep. They are gazing into each others, um, whatever end may or may not have eyes. Suddenly the female tilts her back end and deposits a multitude of eggs in the underbrush. Parasitic love on the olive skinned moon.

agent j, if you have underbrush on your butt cheeks you might want to invest in some wax.

Pinworms, ah yes, those are fun. How about the bot flies? You know, the ones that lay their larva under your skin and there it stays and grows until it's time to emerge...
