        That was special. Never seen anything like that. I've heard of ladies getting wood ticks in their nether region but how would you like a few of those down there?

          Those larvae are basically the human type of warbles that cattle, horses and other animals can get. Had a 4H steer once that had few in his back - weirdest thing watching dad pop those out.

            do they start with a fly bite and some microscopic egg gets planted? WTF? Can't stop thinking about Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan.

              Needles. I just dread going for bloodwork and It's mostly because the nurse has a hell of a time finding a decent vein and when she/he does it will usually roll on them. Had a blood clot when I was in the hospital so I had to have shots in the stomach to combat the clot and blood tests every so often to make sure I was getting the proper dose of Warfarin.

                  Human botfly are found in Mexico, Central and South America. Eggs are carried by mosquitoes and enter where the mosquito bit.

                    Pretty sure that was debunked on mythbusters.

                        Needles don't bother me a bit, nor does an IV, just don't watch when they put them in. So I wasn't freaked at all when I was told I needed a needle for a Arterial blood gas test. Son of a $$$$$ did that hurt. It should have dawned on me that the name Arterial meant they were going to stick the needle in an artery and not just a vein.

                          I do platelet donation and that needle just plain hurts.

                              C'mon you guys, those are small gauge needles. The ones in dialysis are like framing spikes in comparison... LOL

                              Even after 7 years, I still hate needles. I have no idea how some people are able to canulate themselves. It would freak me out.

                                I don't want to compare it to Dialysis because I'm fortunate enough to never have gone through that. I will say that if you ever have had a blood gas you don't want another one.
