MurphyMurphy: mesmer242: Well, subby, is there a disease you do want?

A priapism wouldn't be so bad, at first anyways...

/yeah i know, condition not disease


You do not want priapism.  If you do not get the blood out of your penis, it will cause the tissue to die and well, the surgeon will have to do a Bobbitt on your gangrenous penis.  Of course, you could go to the doctor early enough and they insert a large needle into your penis and drain the blood out.
So, do you want priapism now?

Cagey B: You know those raccoons you see running around in the street sometimes near your house?

They may be carrying this.

"If the larvae are in a paratenic host, they break into the bloodstream and enter various organs, particularly the central nervous system. A great deal of damage occurs wherever the larva tries to make a home. In response to the attack, the body attempts to destroy it by walling it off or killing it. The larva moves rapidly to escape, seeking out the liver, eyes, spinal cord or brain."

Sleep tight.


Guess I won't be hand-feeding any raccoons then!

Lordy... contagious RSD with the effects ramped up worse.  I literally cringed away from the article subby - /farkin' rude gesture.  Constant RSD pain is plenty bad enough without having to think about a version that can be passed around and I'd be even MORE sensitive to pain.  Christ, screw you for putting this up here for me to read, I'm gonna go gibber in a corner under my blankie now.  Ain't enough meds in the world to get that image outta my head.

From Wikipedia:

Humans are incidental hosts of this roundworm, and may become infected through ingestion of larvae in raw or undercooked snails or other vectors, or from contaminated water and vegetables. The larvae are then transported via the blood to the central nervous system (CNS), where they are the most common cause of eosinophilic meningitis, a serious condition that can lead to death or permanent brain and nerve damage

Enjoy those raw vegetables vegans, num num nom. I'm sure a little more salad dressing will do the trick.

Sounds like a mafia type way to die.

If my memory serves me correctly: A few years ago a guy in Australia ate a slug, because of a dare from his friends.  He contracted this and came down sick.    I'm pretty sure he was in intensive care for a month from it.

After a few days, a doctor diagnosed him with Rat Lungworm Disease. Extremely rare and as nasty as it sounds, it can only be found in that part of Hawaii. And it comes from a microscopic parasite in a rat.
