I've been following news on Morgellons disease for a little over a year now. For some reason it's something that has completely just captivated my curiosity.
If you don't know anything about it here is a great article I just read that kind of sums up
what Morgellons is as well as new research they've found linking it to fungus
or possibly genetically modified food.
This is a new disease that people are becoming afflicted with that
a lot of patients are being prescribed anti-psych medications.
Then others are being tested demanding answers to what they believe is a very
What do you think about it? Do you think it's just delusions of parasites or that these people really
are afflicted with something that causes lesions, fibers growing out of their body and other serious symptoms?
There are a alot of great youtube videos and websites about moregellons disease too.
"In New Science magazine, Sept. 15-21 edition, Daniel Elkan describes a patient who for years has been "finding tiny blue, red and black fibers growing from intensely itchy lesions on his skin." These fibers appear like pliable plastic and can be several millimeters long. Some appear in a zig-zag pattern. These fibers can be as fine as spider silk, yet they are strong enough to distend the skin when pulled." Read More
I thought the site was starting to look a little devoid of photos.
I found this picture the other day when I was cleaning out my photo folder.
I was making fajitas and cut open this pepper and this is exactly what it looked like!
No altering what-so-ever.
It gave me a great laugh!
Laika (from the Russian: Лайка, a breed of dog, literally meaning "Barker" or "Howler") was a Soviet space dog (c. 1954–November 3, 1957) who became the first living mammal to orbit the Earth and the first orbital casualty. Little was known about the impact of space flight on living things at the time Laika's mission was launched. Some scientists believed humans would be unable to survive the launch or the conditions of outer space, so engineers viewed flights by non-human animals as a necessary precursor to human missions. The United States used chimpanzees; the Soviet program elected to use dogs. Laika, a stray, originally named Kudryavka (Russian: кудрявка Little Curly-Haired One), underwent training with two other dogs, and was eventually chosen as the occupant of the Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 that was launched into outer space on November 3, 1957.
Laika died a few hours after launch, presumably from stress and overheating, probably due to a malfunction in the thermal control system. The true cause and time of her death was not made public until 2002; instead, it was widely reported that she lived for several days. However, the experiment proved that a living passenger could survive being launched into orbit and endure weightlessness. It paved the way for human spaceflight and provided scientists with some of the first data on how living organisms react to spaceflight environments. On April 11, 2008, Russian officials unveiled a monument to Laika. A small monument in her honour was built near the military research facility in Moscow which prepared Laika's flight to space. It features a dog standing on top of a rocket.
