He should probably have that looked at.

Sounds like a typical NHS wait time.

Probably got it from eating an egg salad sandwich from a vending machine in the restroom of a truck stop.

Well now we know what "the winter of our discontent" was all about.

Ringworm's a biatch.  Damned near impossible to get rid of.

Are we certain? Maybe someone took an infected sh*t on him after they buried him.

Those Brits sure don't know how to spell "fecal" correctly, though.

Well, he did spend a lot of time loitering in a parking lot.

Or, you could argue that maybe WE don't know to spell it correctly.  The Brits add a lot of extra letters; faecal, paedophile, travelled, humour, and of course, my favorite, cheque.  Maybe British English is the correct spelling/pronunciation of words, and we've been farking it up all this time.

If you're even remotely interested, this is a wonderful article detailing all the boring and pedantic differences between the two: Comparison of American and British English

FTA: "A soil sample from the region where his infected intestines would have been during life, revealed multiple roundworm eggs."

They buried him alive?

Interesting how dead kings look just like dead peasants.


Being pedantic here, whilst Kings and that lot tended to have longer bones due to more protein, because of the fact that onions and cabbage and such were considered peasant fare, the peasants had better teeth- unless you were very high up the economic ladder, sugar was quite a luxury and at least with all the onions and cabbage whilst your cesspit, if you had such, might smell like the ninth pit of hell when the weather warmed up at least you got a modicum of vitamin C during the winter.

According to the article I read about this issue, its a one-time treatment by pill.  Im not trying to be confrontational, just posting what I read.

The worms go to the lungs as part of the infection routine.

The next time you hear someone romanticizing the middle ages, remind them that the King of England, a man who lived in the greatest amount of luxury available, had parasitic worms.

And was a hunchback, had to shiat in a jar on the floor of his bedroom, clean his bum with his fingers, and never took a bath in his life.

Someone had parisites before modern plumbing? Nothing shocking about that. Before modern plumbing most of the white people in the south were infected with hook worms.

And you can tell when a skeleton was from someone who served as an archer - when they recovered almost 100 skeletons from the Mary Rose, the longbowmen all had remarkable repetitive stress injuries in the shoulder and lower spine.

This only serves to confirm my conclusion that life in pre-modern times really really sucked.
