    Brain eating amoebae kill people: Didn't we see these things in Star Trek 2?

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    You see, their young enter through the ears and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex. This has the effect of rendering the victim extremely susceptible to suggestion. Later, as they ...grow..., follows madness - and death.

    These are pets, of course. Not quite domesticated.

    And I thought television was the thing that ate my brain. And recreational drugs. It was an amoeba?

    Yup, it's killed 6 times this year. All in hot-weather states. 23 times in the US since 1995.

    That is scary, sad, only consolation is that I can now claim an excuse for the left side of my brain when posting in Redszone.
