Eppendork has a very large tattoo on her back - it is beautiful and it hurt lots - especially over the spine. However, I don't have one of my science and now I am thinking I want one - where should I start methinks? I do believe it will require much thought - the last one took around 10 years to happen. What made Eppendork think about this? I was reading Carl Zimmer blog "The Loom" and I came across this - the Science Tattoo Emporium and it's tre cool. I also love Carl Zimmer's Parasite Rex - a very rocking parasite book - it's still on my bookshelf. You should read it.
Check out those fangs! How cool is the very ordinary tapeworm?! Click on the picture it will take you to Parasite Rex.
PS: Did anyone see that House episode where they pulled the twenty foot tapeworm from inside someone who couldn't feel pain - awesome!
