← Brainwashed by a parasite

Yes I'm nearly thirty years old and I still play video games. And proud of it.

There ain't a damn thing wrong with that. :) I'm a gamer myself and I'm 35. In fact, I need to go back and finish RE4. I enjoy that game, but I really hate when the tentacles pop out of someone's head. Just nasty. The infected wolves really freaked me out the first time I fought them.

On topic: Yuck. Parasites are very fascinating to me, but I just hate reading about them, especially when there are pictures. ;)

I once saw some autopsy photos of an elderly Japanese man who had lived nearly all of his life eating sushi. His body was riddled with parasites, and eventually they reached critical mass in his skull and he apparently killed himself to stop the headaches.

I will never, ever, eat raw fish, even if my life depends on it.
