Marty Online   happy

Mark W. Moffett is the only human male to have given birth -- watch the video for proof!

This amazing video is excellent mealtime viewing, so sit down at your desk, pull out that sandwich and get ready for a fascinating story about biodiversity!

Mark W. Moffett (a.k.a. "Doctor Bugs") tells his horrifying yet humorous tale of the parasitic botfly larva that drilled its way into the back of his hand during an expedition to Belize. The maggot took ten weeks to grow to "maturity," surviving Mark's subsequent trips to Honduras, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. It finally emerged on 2 December 2010, at the end of a meeting with ant expert and environmentalist E.O. Wilson at Harvard.

i did not know what was going on until about 3 weeks into it a hole opened up and he/she was poking it's breathing tube out at me.
then i smothered it with vasaline and that bandaid over night. it was a corpse when it came out.
