    parasitic worms have always creeped me out, the Cordyceps was no problem, Just Worms always make me squirm.

    OMFG, come on use your First posts wisely, not like some moron Duchbag, it doesn`t make you "famous" or cool, Just amkes you an Annoying retard by pointing it out.

    That was interesting for the first half, but then it got kind of boring. The narrator`s voice was just kind of boring and he only talked about the grasshoppers for like 45 seconds. I don`t know, I guess it was interesting but I`m just not in the mood to listen to some guy drone on about bugs and diseases.

    Frrreeeeeaakyyy...I read about a cow in Australia that walked into the ocean, swam out as far as 300 yards, and finally drowned. Makes you wonder if the worms are working thier up the food chain! :-O

    Oh yeah, to add to KoalaMeatPies comment about "first post". I think whoever just writes "first post" without adding any comments about the link, didn`t even watch the link. They just clicked on view/add comments as quick as they could just so they could write "first post". Which all translates to "Hey I`m a dweeb".

    Daaammnnn... yet another thing that we hope doesn`t evolve to going for humans. Course we already have emo kids... so a parasite telling humans to commit suicide would be tough to find.

    fodarexiii, there is something similar that effects people. It doesn`t make you commit suicide, but you might wish you had. Here`s a link to wikipedia for the Guinea Worm. Hope the link works. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinea_worm

    By the way, the reason his voice was so boring was because it was a translator. They were originally speaking French.
