I want to un-read that article.  I was better off not knowing.

I have the sudden urge to soak my head in isopropyl for several hours.

Mite as well face it.

Burning off my face with a torch actually has a bit of appeal for once.

Suddenly, so very...itchy.

I've always wanted low maintenance pets.

So I don't sleep alone, nice!

I liked having this story in front of my face a mite.

I think this kind of thing is pretty interesting. Like how there are microscopic plants living inside everybody. How do they do that? Why are they there? Where do they come from?

If we examine the mite's DNA, do the mites we have match pretty universally or do we have mites matching our parents, siblings, significant others, or even pets?

Yeah, but eyelash mites are the things that keep your eyelashes clean!

I knew it wasn't the meth!
 
2014-08-28 05:51:22 PM  
I could've went my entire life without knowing this
 
2014-08-28 05:56:56 PM  
No.

No no no.

Not reading the article. Not reading the comments.

Nope, not going to do it.

They're creepin' around my shorts
They're under the bathroom sink
They're ridin' inside my car
They're swimmin' in my drink
They're hidin' between my toes
They're lurkin' in every kiss
I got 'em way up my nose
In every orafice
I'm gonna show them who's boss
I'm gonna get even yet
Just gimme some Lysol spray
Just hand me a moist towelette
Don't tell me I'm paranoid
I know that they're after me

Your face mites are watching you masterbate.

Your genital mites are helping you masturbate.

The denial here is great.

Here's another juicy bit: if you count the cells in and on any person there are more foreign than native cells.

Cell size has a lot to do with it, but the margin isn't even close.

Do you still think you're sexy, Rod?
 
2014-08-28 08:57:53 PM  
Are we born with them? I would think not. So, at what age do we acquire our first face mites?

I'm gonna start charging rent and levying taxes.

That'll teach the little bastards to freeload on my face.

That, is actually a great question. I'd suspect that they show up extremely early. Being close to mom during breast feeding probably helps.

"Goddamnit mom, I don't want your face mites!"
