EDIT:  Immediately after posting this I almost swallowed a shard of plastic from an ice tray that got in to my water and seriously freaked myself out.  Be careful of everyday situations...

Thanks to you, now I'm reading about dermoid cyst. ಠ_ಠ

There's that South American water nematode thing, I forget what it's called - great scene in The Rundown with The Rock that should explain it: "nuh-uh - not this boy's pinto!" And it's real. And it requires surgery to remove in most cases iirc. Compared to that, nothing I've ever encountered in North America approaches or stands a chance as being sufficient nightmare fodder. Depending on the type of centipede, they're actually helpful creatures - they hunt and eat other bugs (a lot like spiders, and in some cases they eat spiders too). Some of them are dangerous to children/pets though (and I don't even want to care about those 10ft long things from the rainforest).

The "shooting spiders out of the car" thing also made me chuckle - a few weeks ago it started to warm up and the moths came out, and they end up in your car as a hiding place (doesn't matter what car you own; really fun as an example of how high end luxury cars are not as sealed as you'd like to think - and I know my car is a big leaky boat). Flipped the A/C on one morning, and it shot a moth out. I had to pull over to stop laughing, because I all could think of when it happened was the Simpsons with Burns' dogs "What, are you going to send out the bees, or the dogs, or the dogs that shoot bees out of their mouths?!" Was also fun watching the birds swarm the intersections and snatch up dozens of moths at a time as they come flying out of the moving/loud/now scary cars to find another hiding place. Was very Hitchcock.

Anyways, this is all a diversion to seeing those pictures and reading about an ant COLONY inside of your headphones (and I'm wearing my 'stats right now and it feels creepy to think about). At least they weren't FIRE ants, right? tongue.gif

Oh, and just to top off every horrible thing mentioned above that exists out in nature where you have to go outside and experience it or in some cases actively look for it:

They're increasing in prevalence in first world too. wink.gif

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX07j9SDFcc (yes I know it isn't the right song, don't e-mail me) - years ago I had a roommate who programmed an alarm clock using this. It not only ruined The Lion King for me, but it also was rather obnoxious at 5 AM. Scared the hell out of house guests too.

Here's the one you want though:

I knew there was reason I never wear shorts anymore.  Take heed my fellow male brethren!  Ditch the shorts!  Do not leave your jewels vulnerable, lest you share the same fate as those unfortunate souls.  Never leave home without your trousers!  That is all, thank you for your time.

Somehow I had forgotten about those.

 

The world is indeed filled with parasites that make nightmare fuel...

T'was my niece that ultimately put me off Lion King. I could have lived perfectly happy the rest of my days never seeing that thing again or hearing any of those songs. Thanks, man. tongue.gif

lol even if ants cant damage the headphones, the idea of them crawling into your ear (ewwwwwww) while listening would put me off enough to find a solution. That's just disgusting man

That ad was, without a doubt, the most laughter that this site has ever evoked from me. I love your avatar, too. At least you've got a good sense of humor about it :)

 

On the other hand, this thread has induced more cringing (cysts can have TEETH?!?!?!?!!!! spiders to the face?! ants in our most precious babies?!? and WHY OH WHY did you have to post a VIDEO of it....ughhhhhhhhhhh) than even the general wallet-draining miasma that these forums emit in general.

 

Fortunately, I'm not one to just sit idly when paranoia strikes. Witness my new listening room:
