Can we have permanently open threads in the sidebar? March 5, 2006 5:30 PM   Subscribe

My favorite pony: Perhaps certain posts could be set aside in a Hall of Fame nook, like certain creatures of Hollywood — ever-youthful, never far from our thoughts, and always open to comment. I'm particularly thinking of this thread. All kudos to washburn, but in this case, the comments have been so wonderful that I hate to see this thread inch down the blue, creeping slowly slowly into oblivion. Save the worms! Anybody?

Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

That's what the sidebar is for.

It's an interesting post, but I'm not inclined to put ass worms on the sidebar. Maybe you can lobby mathowie to do it?

I came so close to missing that thread.

*sigh*

What do you have against ass worms, Jess?

I think a lot of people are trying to FORGET that thread, actually....*shudder*

That airnxtz thread definitely belongs in the Assworms Sidebar.

A sidebar for intestinal worms and eBay scammers? Yes. Possible name: Ass MetaFilter.

konolia between this and "I don't want to be exposed to anus" it's like you're becoming a proctologist's version of a Holocaust denier.

Well, there is a difference between 'denying the existence of anus the holocaust' and 'not wanting to look at pictures of it'.

A very large difference.

That should go on the sidebar!

A buttload of difference.

Oh, I believe in worms, alright...and shudder.
posted by konolia at 5:21 AM on March 6, 2006


konolia believes!


...in worms!

Seriously, though, while I appreciate the value of a good assworm thread, the idea of keeping it open indefinitely is, well, dumb. It's just another thread.

As one of the purveyors of the ass-worm video site, I'd say the original post missed the best of the Ascaris videos.

If you've got the stomach for it, here are some more foreign bodies and parasites in the GI tract.

And especially for all the hypochondriacs with stomach pain, let me recommend: retrieving a swallowed toothpick.

Great, thanks a lot--I ate raw meat in Korea about a year ago.

I eat raw meat in Korea a few times a month. What doesn't kill me makes me stronger.
posted by stavrosthewonderchicken at 3:15 PM on March 6, 2006


(Nobody eats raw pork here -- if the meat was not fish, it was beef. Which is no guarantee of anything, as basic food hygiene is still a magical, futuristic and fanciful concept here for the most part, but there you go...)

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but didn't Charles V like eating worms?
