    Skin. It keeps your innards warm and shit. It can be white, it can be brown, IT CAN BE YELLOW (but only if you have jaundice). But you know what else your skin does? It gets infected. It gets wounded. I GETS BETTER AND BETTER. Not sure what I'm talking about? Allow me to deliver unto you what's in with skin. IT'S FILTHY SKIN MALFUNCTION TIME.

    Cystic acne. OH YEAH.

    Now, I'm sure you've heard of acne. Hell, you've probably had it. But this is better. THIS SHIT IS CYSTIC. It's the most severe form of acne vulgaris, and let me tell you, it's pretty goddamn gross. Instead of being filled with pus like normal zits, it's filled with anything ranging from blood to chili. Sure, you CAN pop one, but you'll get pock marks. EW.

    Then again, we aren't just dealing with pimples in this thread, oh no. The skin is natures BUFFET. Acne is just the appetizer. In nature, there are parasites. And some of these parasites, well...the really know how to get under your skin. Literally.

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls....the bot fly.

    Yes, yes, it seems so innocuous, don't it? It looks like a fat, jolly housefly. But oh, is it ever nefarious. You see, the bot fly KNOWS animals will recognize it, so here is what it does. It snatches up a common housefly, no big deal. Glues a few eggs to it's abdomen and let's it buzz off into the night. The housefly lands on an animal or a human and the magic begins. The glue melts and the eggs hit the skin. The heat causes the eggs to almost instantly hatch, allowing for the tiniest of wriggling little worms to burrow into the flesh of the unlucky victim. CHILLING, YES?

    This chubby little bastard lives in you, feeds off you, and generally mooches off you until it's time to leave or you catch him.

    They burrow out. Best to intercept and destroy. Interrupt the life cycle.

    It is like Chicken Pox's sexier, more experienced cousin. Sure she will probably end up killing you, but what a wild ride it will be.

    On another note it's hard to tell the difference between having roundworm and just eating way too many beansprouts.

    I truly thought this thread was going to be about eating scabs.

    Now it is.
