Water Boogers





The video above was taken with a sewer cam. I can honestly say that I've never laid eyes on creatures as disgusting as the ones that it captured. At first I wondered if slimy aliens might be colonizing our sewers and feeding off our . . . well, you know.

But then I learned that they MIGHT BE byrozoans, otherwise known as water boogers. (A fitting moniker if ever there was one.)

(Or it might be a hoax. Or viral advertising for a new movie. Or aliens.)

ew.

question: is it illegal or just funny if you place a fake water bottle at CVS? just as a joke, or as a touch of...something. not stealing, not vandalising, just...leaving it there.

i'd love to know.

and for those people who read my blog occasionally (the one called the Chronicles of Eris McLane), thank you so much for commenting! it makes me feel happy.

Excuse me while I throw up in my own mouth. Are those living things?! I'm not sure if I want them to be alive ('cause if they are, that is the most disgustingly pointless living thing EVER) or not ('cause if they're not, I'm kinda worried about how they're, you know, moving...)

Somebody kill them before they kill us!
Note to self: Must take trip to NC. Pack headlamp and rubber boots.

They're clumps of annelid worms, clinging to each other:

Clumps of worms. Clinging to each other. In our sewers. Plotting to lay waste to humanity. Yes, I see.

Hazel, can I come with you?!

OK, that definitely sounds nasty.... *shudders*

But, Kirsten, could you post the link for the video? My computer doesn't show it, for some reason (it's done that before). Thanks!

i don't think so. also, i am cultivating a rotten egg in my closet in hopes of smashing it in a crowded public place. i don't know if this is illegal...most likely, if i was caught, i would just be given a lecture. after all, i am an innocent twelve year-old *adopts wide-eyed expression*. (for information on how to create your own stinkbomb, search it on wikihow.)

so i'm trying to think of the title of a book i read, but i can't remember it. have any of you guys read a book about a girl who's mom was a good witch but the villgers killed her. so the girl ran away a met these goblins. then of course she meets a prince. and for some reason they have to get the goblins out of the world. so there's this wall that the girl opens up and the goblins go through it. if any of you guys have heard of anything like that will you PLEASE tell me!
