    Gordian worms live inside crickets for long periods, feeding on the cricket's diet. Once fully grown, they inject chemicals into the cricket's brain, brainwashing it and forcing it to kill itself by jumping into water. Once in water, the worm wriggles out of the writhing body and swims off in search of a mate. Article published in Apr 06 Nature magazine.

    I dont believe so...how scary is dozens of human beings walking straight to the water and drowning themselves, and then the worms come out and have an orgy? It'll be funny at worst.

    @topic: thats from last week's BBC's nature programme, saw this one live, absolutely beautiful! nature at its best!

    .. you know .. i dont get it? how is this all, weird, or ewwww, or spooky or nauseous? ... i think its rather, a spectacular testament to the nature's ingenuity!
    i know i know, having a fish wriggling up your penis would not be a comfortable experience, still ... just imagine! never in a million years can one come up with something that original as that!!

    i wish darwin was alive today ... ;)

    [EDIT] .. as for the gore flick .. yes please, i would like to see 'plants' rise out from the skulls of dead, dry and rotting humans, and then the 'plants' would just stand there spreading the spores while we sit there for 2 hours watchin the splendid dance of 'spores in air' ... jk
