Has no idea which board he is on.
I've always wanted one of these as a pet; they aren't aggressive and can eat anything.
Chinese woman's body riddled with parasitic worms and cysts, as a result of eating raw pork for 10 years
The condition she now has is called Cysticercosis and is caused by the pork tapeworm Taenia solium. Basically, when pigs get infected with this (don't worry, it's uncommon in the first world because it's reportable) by eating tapeworm eggs, the tapeworms set up camp in their muscles as cysts. This isn't super detrimental to the pigs, but like I said this is reportable in the first world and shouldn't get into the food chain. When a person consumes infected raw pork, they are eating these cysts, which happily find their new home in the intestines of people as tapeworms. They then begin shedding eggs which exit in feces, and when these eggs get consumed again (poor hand washing, vegetables contaminated with infected fecal matter...) cysticercosis results, meaning people end up with these cysts in their muscle. In humans, it can get really nasty and actually get into your central nervous system (brain!) and cause all sorts of havoc.
>eating raw pork for 10 years
Now why would you even do that?
this is my favourite pic. Look at the size of him!
If anyone is wondering what these pictures are, the first one is actually her legs, the second one is her brain(those dots should not be there, if you couldn't guess that), and she is NOT dead yet, but will probably never fully recover since it's difficult to repair all the dead matter or remove the larvae embedded in her brain and organs.
She didn't even realize anything was wrong with her until she went to the doctor to complain about headaches and nausea, after 10 years of doing this. Apparently the worms actually shut off the nerves that make you feel the wriggling and itchiness of your body when they start hollowing out your brain to make you into a walking flesh suit filled with worms.
It was part of some ritual bullshit she had been doing since she was 10 years old where everyone in a village would eat the most tender parts of a pig raw.
Apparently it can sometimes slip under the radar or go unreported in some first world countries too, and there have been cases where it occured even after eating cooked meat and fish. It could happen to literally anyone, it could happen to you.
(okay that last paragraph was entirely bullshit)
But its not. Ever grill up a steak yourself and make it rare? Ever make chicken or pork chops and you aren't ENTIRELY sure it was above 165 for at least 10 minutes? Ever have a fish fresh from a lake? Ever have a ballpark hotdog, gas station hotdog or sammich, or off a food truck that might not have sufficient equipement? Ever have any meat from any place where that meat was cooked by hand leaving room for error? Yeah. It can happen. Only sure fire way to avoid it is to eat purely processed foods which is unhealthy as all hell.
Dude, don't worry about it, you will know within the first week that something is wrong with you long before it gets like this. The symptoms are super obvious. You only need to worry if you’ve ever been for a walk in the woods, laid in the grass, live in or visited a insect common area, or have a pet cat or dog, then you may have exposed yourself to infestation and associated co-infections.
This is a multi-systemic infestation, and may affect every part of the body causing fatigue, stiff neck, headaches, light and sound sensitivity, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), anemia, dizziness, joint and muscle pain, brain fog, tingling, numbness and burning sensations of the extremities, memory and concentration problems, difficulties with sleep (both falling asleep and frequent awakening), chest pain and palpitations and/or psychiatric symptoms like depression and anxiety. This of course varies from person to person, you may only exhibit one or two of these symptoms, but if you do you should immediately consult a doctor.

My fucking sides.
Award for the most disgusting thing i've ever seen on the net. What adds to it is the less graphical and restrained nature of the x-ray as opposed to a straight up gore photo.
You did it anon, you made me chuck my lunch by posting a picture on a Tibetan pipe smoking IRC conference.
I'll be eating meat well-well-done now.
This isn't actually true, this is what the meat looks like when it's infected, and everything run through the industry undergoes extreme inspection before being put out there. And even then, if there was a small tiny chance of something this obvious and easily detectable slipping past all the measures against it, the eggs become utterly ineffective after being remotely cooked.
You are welcome.
This is how I know your just some damn teenager, I work in the industry and we have FDA inspectors coming by the plant quite frequently, and they are complete hard asses that can really fuck up operations, if we don't inspect our own and this gets caught, the company can lose a shit ton of money and can even be shut down and no one wants that
FUN FACT: This is actually the reason why religions such as Judaism and Islam are against the eating of certain meats, back when such things were being founded a lot of people fell victim to this sort of thing due to poor meat or lack of knowledge/hygiene.
Of course it seems archaic now(or does it?), but the more you know!
He's a different anon than me entirely. I'm just saying we have a LOT of health and safety gateways and inspections and STILL people get fucked up in america from time to time. Its like the hardest most shit lottery to win but people win it nonetheless from time to time.
This is the idiot i'm talking about to be clear here.
>muh first world special snowflake
yeah those tape worms would be running all over inside you, doesn't matter which imaginary world you are from. It's reportable, but that doesn't prevent it from accidentally slipping in
Yeah, sure. Fucking first worlders, thinking they're protected by their hygiene, proper medication and more controlled diets.
Nobody is denying that people get tape worms in the first world, except we actually have the knowledge of the symptoms, means to avoid it and medication to flush it out were it ever to occur. Hell, it actually gets flushed out naturally over time if you're health enough and wash your hands after scratching your ass.
Lets put a stop to the forced fearmongering for a minute. The case with the woman being full of these worms occurred under unusual circumstances, IN CHINA, and not only that, but the others in her village who had participated in the same meals were found to be completely clean. In order for it to even reach the point it did in that woman and not die out she needed to literally eat her own shit which contained the eggs every so often until it developed into Cysticercosis.
It isn't unheard of in the first world, but it is super rare. If that shit gets into the food chain someone would lose a lot of money, you can be paranoid all you want but you're not as paranoid as a company when it comes to avoiding a lawsuit that would ruin said company.
Most reported cases in the first world actually happened due to vacations abroad in countries that don't properly regulate their food. So not only is it extraordinarily rare to get such a thing via meat, but in the case you do get a tape worm from eating first world meat the symptoms are obvious (Taeniasis due to T. solium or T. saginata is usually characterized by mild and non-specific symptoms. Abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea or constipation may arise 6–8 weeks after ingestion of the cysticerci when the tapeworms become fully developed.) and can be treated within a fucking week.
nigga do you not realize you're on /x/? You're preaching to conspiracy fags who have been convinced president nixon has watched them take a shit for the last ten years.
You cannot convince someone who won't attempt to see your side, as is the case here on /x/.
I just wanna make it clear i've seen it happen thats why i know it can happen in a domestic homeland setting with no visit to other countries. Usually its within poorer area's and too people who don't take great care of themselves and yes we clear it up within a few weeks. Just don't like the idea that things designed to keep us in healthy food and water can be so fallible.
I don't support the "muh first worlder" asshats attitude though.
>nixon watching us shit
Now what kind of bullshit is that? Kennedy i'd understand, but nixon?Who'd believe that?
>What the fuck is this picture
You'd lose whatever it pinches. They crack open coconuts with that shit. I've broken hatchets on coconuts before. Thats why you get them from behind cause at least they aren't as hard as coconuts.
Hagfish. Super flexible and when threatened it secretes a substance tirns sea water into this mucous like substance that is both sticky and slick. Ugly as fuck and tastes like shit. Fishing trolleys and the like pick them up in nets and gotta weed them out and throw them back.
How much $$$ would it take for you guys to interact with these things?
>all those different colors
So it really is a cultural thing.
skinwalkers (or now they're called fleshgates)
some OC here. took this camping last week. barely made it out alive.
Pyrosomes can be as big as whales.
Agreed, but the fact that they're so massive and otherworldly looking is very unnerving to me.
They're actually colonies of tiny organisms, though they function collectively as one big worm. They eat by siphoning plankton and other things things (hopefully not people) through their entire body, which is hollow like a tube.
>meet cute Australian online
>they say "come to Australia"
>they were actually a swarming mass of insects, nopes and animals luring prey
>Australia has been devoid of human life for years
>it's all just horrifying giant insects in hollowed out flesh suits trying to mimic human life to attract food
Come to Australia.
>Apparently the worms actually shut off the nerves that make you feel the wriggling and itchiness of your body when they start hollowing out your brain to make you into a walking flesh suit filled with worms.
From the looks of every animal in pain/dying, they all try to live no matter what.
Cut in half, gored out, stabbed in the eye, riddled with painful tumors, they don't care they will keep going.
They will still try to live and make a baby. The will power of these creatures is insane. I've never seen an animal not try to live regardless of how many fangs are jammed in it's throat.
She's just a insect host shinobi from the Aburame Clan like Shino.

You must be some special kind if tumblr fag. Its life, its natural selection, regardless of your fucking feels its what was meant to happen. If humans could learn to take this appraoch with fellow humans the world would be a much better place.
The distinctive smell of bananas and whipped cream.
A vocalization that sounds like hyenas.
Ultrasound that can see through solid walls. Antennae that can detect human body odor from a mile away. Infrared sensing pits that can sense body heat. Limbs that can sheer the body of a car like tin foil.
Cause the circle of life is a thing and its uncles job to help keep the spiritual ideals of the tribe alive. he can just give up ob his idealogis and morals when shit gets hard cause what would be the point of having them in the first place. He did drive around with his buffalo rifle in case he saw whoever was trapping on his land though.

If the land belonged to his uncle then there would be no "ranger." It's not a national park. The closest thing to a ranger in an area like that would be the game warden who usually works for the county and monitors hunting through a kind of honor system.
>believing what you read on /x/
I knew a guy who's dad was a meat inspector out west. He said that 90% of his time was spent cutting cancerous tumors and other shit out of meat. This is modern times. Guy was a vegetarian
I can't even remember what this is called but we've had a ton of deer found dead around here (bumfuck nowhere, Illinois) that suffered from it and some other disease. It's sad that they clearly suffer. Less sad, however, that there are fewer that I might hit with my car.
Due to the pig feed itself being treated if you live in the first world you can actually eat a medium rare porkchop... just don't ever expect a restaurant to give it to you that way.
Look at that absolute monster. There's a reason I don't swim in lakes and play in rivers. Don't get me wrong, I think alligator snappers are cool. Just as long as there's something between us, be it a TV screen or metal bars.
Communion. Great book you should read it. Horrible horrible horrible movie you'll lose brain cells just watching it. Movies so bad its almost entirely unrelated to the source material, though there are some legitimate creepy parts.
>inb4 whats dat?!?! :O
Its a soliphugae
No. That is a Tyranid. I refuse to believe that thing came from this planet.
I used to hate these but then read that they can live to be a couple years old and only eat other small bugs and are really afraid of humans so now I kinda find them endearing. Also they have cute little black eyes.
Yeah pigs don't have hard hooves so they're a lot more susceptible to getting hook worms (they hide in mud and hook themselves to the soles of your feet and then burrow in) so don't go walking around in the mud barefoot anytime soon.
Looks like we beat the covies to the punch this time
Wolf dies to "natural selection" by bear trap.
Uncle wants to "naturally select" whoever left it
I know x is retarded but this is extra bad
Random people always tell me that I look like a young Mel Gibson. I don't.
I think that's one of the craziest things about nature. Humans are the only animals that die on purpose sometimes, with knowing that death is the only reward for taking that action.
Nah, that's not true mate. We're all easy going and just want to have a good time lol.
Come visit us and you'll see. We'll crack open a cold one, just for you.
I once read a couple chapters of some sci-fi book that had a vermiform character. Something about dimensional shifting as a theme or something. This was years ago and I'd love to read the whole thing. Wormbro was pretty cool.
I never there could be anything to surpass that level. This is a new level if existence. All hail the god of autism. His name is Anon.
Wrong. Some parasites especially eggs, namely tapeworm the one in question, can survive upwards of 165 degrees for around 5 minutes. Thats why its mandatory and ServSafe required you get all pork products above 165F for at least 10 minutes on the inside thickest part of the meat. You're thinking of fish at 145F but thats only because the way their muscle is shaped lets heat through much easier.
pork tapeworms don't form cysts in you when you eat raw meat (containing live cysts), they happen when you eat their eggs, e.g. feces. that woman ate dirt and shit.
Interesting side-note: the hagfish has no pineal gland, and it feeds by burrowing into corpses on the seafloor and absorbing nutrients through its skin. It is a soulless parasite.
>tastes like shit
I can't give you a link to prove it, but 2 weeks ago I saw a japanese tv show that interviewed a small village that figured out how to "de-slime" hagfish and subsequently cook them. Obviously a lot of initial washing involved. Then iirc a lot of handscrubbing while the hagfish are hung up to dry. I think the issue is the skin, which would probably be the source of the slime, but the flesh itself was said by the host to be excellent, presumably like fine eel.
No idea about that but you boil the skin to seperate it then skin it then wash the flesh. I've had it prepared this way and it still taste like shit. Maybe they got a different way to season or cook it or something like brining or pickling.
Looks like the juvenile stage of the alien from dreamcatcher...
Looks kind of creepy when standing up.
Also, fucker here can kill a human with its claws.
Not true. If kept in shitty conditions and abused for too long, dolphins will sit on the floor of the tank and just stop breathing until they go unconcious, at which point they drown.
You can always like rocks anon :)
