Yeah - I basically don't like clustered patterns of holes found in fuman/animal flesh. I also HATE lotus seed pods. Weird, I know but they just revolt me.

Other holes are fine though.

^^^ already on here @ #4 but deserves reiterating: lamprey eels will fuck you up

also i saw someone mention loa loa & filarial worms are FUCKED UP (google @ yr own risk) but ill rep for roundworms specifically Ascaris lumbricoides:

http://www.thaimedicalnews.com/wp-content/uploads/round-worms.jpg

Ascaris lumbricoides is the giant roundworm of human, belonging to the phylum Nematoda. It is an ascarid nematode responsible for the disease ascariasis in human. It is the largest and most common parasitic worm in humans. A quarter of human population is estimated to be infected by this parasite. Ascariasis is prevalent worldwide and more so in tropical and subtropical countries.

It can reach a length of up to 35 cm

PARASITES ARE THE MOST DISGUSTING CREATURES ITS A KNOWN FACT

Yeah - I basically don't like clustered patterns of holes found in fuman/animal flesh. I also HATE lotus seed pods. Weird, I know but they just revolt me.

I am the same way, esp about the lotus seed pods, and I didn't even know it was a thing! Every once in a while i have a really awful dream along these lines the specifics of which I will not divulge here, and even thinking about it makes me kind of queasy and disturbed feeling.

Also, I snortOLed at "spidermerkin.jpg."

sinister chemical wisdom (Jenny), Tuesday, 18 May 2010 02:41 (seven years ago) Permalink

I didn't know it was a thing either until a friend told me about how she felt that way and I realized that I wasn't alone! Even just getting a quick glance at some of the images when I googled it for quoting purposes earlier had me nearly crawling out of my skin. *shudder*

ok uh

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7235205.stm

The team recorded footage of a female worm-like amphibian, called a caecilian, allowing her young to peel off and eat her skin.

Scientists have only recently discovered this bizarre parental behaviour.

The female caecilian's skin becomes thicker and more nutrient-rich when she bears offspring.

And the young have specialised teeth for tearing and removing it.

the hagfish

http://pirosfera.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/hagfish.jpg

the hagfish's trick is exuding loads of mucus-slime to escape predators and clog fish gills to suffocate them. then they tie themselves in knots to scrape the slime off. they are known to eat their prey from the inside out. they have four hearts and two brains and their gametes are released through openings in their digestive system.

demiurge overkill (Trayce), Thursday, 20 May 2010 06:22 (seven years ago) Permalink

I waitered at a fine dining restaurant in Chicago in a building in which a major US advertising firm is based. In one of the dining areas they would display enormous prints of ads produced by that firm. For months, there was a wall-sized print of a n@ked m0le r@t for an IL zoo (I think?) above the tables of this expensive seafood restaurant.

I am full of so many conflicting feelings about this animal. Do I want to run away from it? Or do I want to hang out and party with it?
