Body Snatchers

Murphy’s Body Snatchers Law states that if a body can be snatched, it will be. Watch a wasp turn a cockroach into a zombie by blocking a neurotransmitter and then leading it by its antenna to the dining table to be eaten [via Slashdot]

Reminds me of a recent short story I read. Greg Egan’s Steve Fever at MIT Technology Review.

The brain is such a strange playground!

    Murphy’s Body Snatchers Law

    Leave it to Murphy to get into this area too! He has been working overtime with so many people in so many other areas! LOL!
