As the person who edited this article, I did not watch the video either, and just seeing that pic gives me the willies every. single. time. *shudders*

Japan has arcades up the yin-yang. Many pachinko ones because pachinko machines are too expensive to keep at home, but many many video game arcades. It's a social meeting place more than some place to turn your back on the world. Well, except for the pachinko, which is kind of like the slots. Kind of. Imagine if pinball paid out in Green Stamps.

Worm and compass I knew, but the rest was interesting, thanks!

I've always thought a cool bit of trivia is the possibility that the caduceus, the symbol of medicine, a serpent wrapped around a staff, may in fact be a representation of exactly this process. It's probably a myth, but I like to believe it anyway.

And while these things are indeed horrific, I still think parasites are awesome.

Well, to you and everyone else that didn't watch the video, you'd be interested to know that the bug is at point of being nearly eliminated from the planet. There are ongoing programs that are systematically wiping out the worm, by interrupting its life cycle. That way, no new generations are being born, until the old ones die out. They will continue this until they've cleansed all lakes and rivers of this pest.

Well, this is one of the few cases where we're doing it intentionally, and one where we can say "good riddance" too. The Guinea worm is one of those pesky parasites that choose to specialize on human ancestors hundreds of thousands of years ago and there's nothing in nature that relies on its existence.

Wow, what an article! This is everything we like. Tech, Science, weird animal life, Medicine, and Gaming. Check and check.
