Body Bugs

I just saw a disturbing report from a Miami news station about people who have bugs coming out of their bodies. Ewwwww! http://www1.wsvn.com/features/articles/investigations/MI39689 Have you ever heard of this before? Last year, there was another disturbing news report about people who have these weird, colored threads coming out of their bodies. I thought that was weird -- until I saw the "body bug" report. What do you think is causing this?

Now I'll really scrub myself raw in the shower. I had heard about the threads, but bugs are animate, mobile, vile creatures! Thanks for making me itch! By the way, I started a discussion earlier about the best avatars on mylot; you were in my top three!

Thanks!! :) A long time ago I saw this on another site and asked the guy who made it if I could use it because I think it's the funniest avatar I've ever seen. Now I use it almost everywhere. It also reminds me of my favorite Saturday Night Live skit (from 30 years ago): No photographers are allowed in a trial courtroom so a newspaper uses an artist to draw the defendant, plaintiff, etc. Except the artist sucks and all his drawings are of stick figures. They credit the drawings as "artist's rendering." You had to be there. :)

Oh my word, this is really freaky! I can't believe this.. I don't even want to think about it, lol! I feel really sorry for the people who this is happening to, unless it's all a hoax, but it doesn't look like it is. It does look like a lot of doctors have been really skeptical about it, though, and i can see why.. it's just so bizarre. How horrible would it be to know that you had something wrong with you, and a doctor wouldn't even believe you? :( I feel so badly thinking about it!
