Dracunculus (Guinea worms)

One more parasite for now; these girls get into human stomachs and after lazing around feeding for a while decide it's time to spread the species, and will generally head South, the irritating making people soak those parts of their body in water, spreading the eggs. They tear (and fatally infect) when yanked, so the way to remove them is to slowly wind them out around a stick over days. Some sites claim this is what the snake-around-stick medical symbol comes from. Don't they look like spaghetti?

Vic, my feet push out the sides on EEE.

If I just went with a larger size (which I actually do), for them to be wide enough I'd have to 3 sizes too long.

Can I really nerdily point out that, the act of them, breaking the skin and such. Like in this picture, is an insanely strong burning sensation, hence like HareTrinity said. It does this SO you will put your foot in water. The pain is said to be excrutiating and as it is slowly pulled out most victims scream in pain, they get to enjoy this for many days as it is slowly pulled out.


My point? Someone get a video of it!
