I wouldn't think that a tape worm egg could have crossed the blood brain barrier.

Unfortunately, it's very common.

Too weird, yet another reason not to venture out to our southern neighbors.

he's a vegan too!

at least since it is a tapeworm it sounded better than the dreaded cd worm.

heck, if it was an autotune worm, it would probably remove itself.

There ya go, right there is reason enough to stay offa that stuff, not to mention the broccoli worms recently reported right here on this forum.

If you are a vegan, and you're say eating a big bowl of broccoli, and you don't notice it and eat say a half dozen broccoli worms, can you still claim to be a vegan? How 'bout say 3, or even 1?

Conspiracy theory- Our dread-locked friend was a meat eating vegan fraud to appeal to "fans". Mr Karma T Tapeworm extracted his revenge.

Mick Jagger is a Rock Star, Freddie Mercury was a rock star.

Oh, I see what you mean now.

Interesting point.

What is the cut-off for Rock Star status? Who else isn't one? That's an honest question: can a person be famous in one country, and unknown in another, and be a Rock Star. Or must they be a worldwide household name?

Worldwide household name makes sense. But then again there are probably Chinese Rock Stars with more fans than Mick Jagger (well, one's not in adult diapers anyway).

Is it record sales? Time in the industry? Autographs requested? Or a bank balance? Can't be number of internal parasites ... Keef must have that record.

Oh sure. Plus we're all fat, geographically ignorant, and shoot guns in the air at random intervals for no particular reason.
