Want to see something really gross? Check out how to remove botfly larva from your back. Not for the squeamish or easily nightmared. I couldn't even watch it 1/8 of the way through. I've read naturalist's accounts of similar removals - it's probably where the author of Alien got his inspiration.

First of All Jimbo.. you should know that All Baltimore Jedi carry disruptor phaser pistols (similar to the Klingon phasers in ST.III)
We shoot first then whip out the light saber.
We dont like to waste time ;-)

I don't know, I think my favorite is the guy in the back-right of that picture, rubbing his hands together and trying his best to resemble Emperor Palpatine in the climactic Luke vs Vader battle from Return of the Jedi.

Well. OK. Second-favorite. After Betty White.

That video is nasty....I could not take my eyes off it.....

I'm not going to watch, but isn't that botfly thing where you have to pull it out an inch at a time, and leave it there until you can pull more and more? ew.

I'll have nightmares for years to come over this...

This is what I miss at Blowoff?

Don't try that at home.

cb - you're thinking of the guinea worm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinea_worm#Treatment

I managed to get through the video. Eww. I have to wonder what would've happened to that man had the botflies continued to grow inside him, if they'd have burroughed in further. The man himself seemed aloof compared to the people around him.

Personally, I think the duct tape on my back (when pulled off) would be far worse than the botflies.
