Attack of the Eyelash Mites
"raw dogma" by Nkrumah Steward, creator of 8BM.com
Ok, so this guy take a photograph with one of those high powered electron microscopes and shows us a picture for all the world to see of eyelash mites, ass up in the air feasting on the dead skin cells of some poor guys hair follicle.
And then, just before you throw up you read
that all of us have these parasites living off of all of us, the filthier we are, the more of them we have on us and that we have literally millions of animals and plants that live on our bodies.
Then you do throw up.
I need to get a stronger stomach.
Either that or I need a less active imagination.
Something’s got to give.
I love to hear about asteroids colliding with the earth, outbreaks of infectious diseases, earthquakes, super volcanoes, terrorist attacks you name it.
I am a news guy.
But what I can’t stand are little things like what is really living in your tap water, what kind of insects are eating you alive while you sleep in your bed and what kind of God awful creatures have been living on your skin every since the day you were born.
That stuff makes me itch.
Think about it, bed mites have one mission and one mission only, they are intent on eating you alive every single night that you crawl into bed to go to sleep.
And their plan is foiled every single morning when your alarm wakes you up because God, in his infinite wisdom, cursed them with mouths too small to feasilbly consume all of you in an eight hour peroid.
But don't believe for a second that they aren't trying.
Because they are.
