If you could somehow keep it alive for more than a week, I'd be interested.

The parasite inside is apparently quite active for several days (4 - 5 days by most accounts), after which it becomes more inactive and eventually dies. Then you left with a dead parasitic worm to stare at, which somehow sounds even worse.

Well now that's quite a compelling sales pitch.
