Here's a little something I made for a project I'm working on. A blend of science and surreal humour. Tell me what you think. Yay or nay?
Cordyceps unilateralis is a parasitic fungus of ants. It really does exhibit mind-control capabilities.
I vote yea. I like it!
Fell off my chair laughing.
Of course, only hard-core science geeks will think so, but who cares about anyone else?
Yay, very good. I guess you might freak people out if you put the Cordyceps fruiting body sprouting out of the guy's forehead, right?
You may also have seen the piece about the parasitised zombie Ants, but this would make a good subject too ;-)
Great idea! The perfect present for all our geek friends, they will like it for sure.
I buy two sets (don't have more friends)
Very nice. You should make another one for the Leucochloridium paradoxum parasite that infects snails. :)
