Yucky Awesome


A group of flatworms called monogeneans are among the closest relatives of tapeworms, and instead of living inside their hosts, they mostly live on the outside....some monogeneans give birth to offspring without releasing them from their bodies. Their offspring mature inside them and give birth as well. Like a hideous Russian doll, a monogenean may contain twenty generations of descendents inside its body!


Suppose someone stops and asks you for directions. You start giving them the goods, but a couple of guys come down the sidewalk carrying a door and they walk right between you and the direction-asker. After they go by, a different person is standing in front of you, patiently waiting for you to continue. Would you notice the switcheroo?

Probably not.

No, seriously.
