Gonna eat your brains!

Okay, so there's the whole, "God made dirt, so dirt don't hurt" playground statement. So your food got a little dirt on it. It won't kill you right?

Some days your little personal fictions get smashed into a million pieces. Take for example the amoeba that lives in dirt, and is more prevalent in California than elsewhere, and that amoeba eats your brain!!! Whimper.

I know, I know, it's probably not from eating dirt. And I know, I know, this is like number 6,212,741 on the list of things that are likely to kill me, but come on! That's a horrible way to go! I mean really - do you go camping and sleep on the dirt and the amoeba crawls into your brain through your ear (like Chekov in Wrath of Khan) and eats your brains? Or do you consume the amoeba in food and it gets into your bloodstream and goes for your brain as a tasty snack? Or what? Ye gads that's not what I want to consider. It's one of those weird things that makes people turn into OCD bubble boy shut-ins. Gah!


  • actually, they go up your nose when you swim in lakes and such and disturb the sediment. that's what they told me in florida, and hence why i have a huge phobia of swimming in non-swimming pool water.
