@meetapossum Whaaaaaaaaaaaat? I really really hope that's streaming on Netflix, because I will watch it TONIGHT.
@meetapossum OMG, Basketcase. I hear there are sequels too -- with baby Belials
@MmeLibrarian What, that is so cute! Don't regret it!
@Veronica Mars is smarter than me I just couldn't handle it! It was easier to repress everything and pretend it never happened. Even thinking about it now is totally grossing me out.
@shumacumlaude A teratoma is different than that (it can have not only hair, but also teeth and even complex organs like eyes) but I have heard of ingrown hairs that just growing and growing and becoming totally disgusting. I'm not sure what that's called, officially/medically.
@Heat Signature The hair and teeth one was probably a teratoma or maybe a fetus in fetu. If you really want to go down that rabbit hole, Slate had a really interesting article about parasitic twins a while back.
@Heat Signature How do you get a hair ball under your skin???
When I was in college I moved into a house with some friends. The house was nasty and we spent days and days cleaning and getting rid of foul old furniture. I decided to save the desk that was left in my room since, you know, not upholstery. But when I opened the drawer I found that it was full of nail clippings, tiny coarse hair trimmings, and crunched up corn chips. I actually couldn't deal with it and just closed the drawer, never to open it again. When a new group of kids moved in after us, I warned them to never open the drawer either (and of course made clear it wasn't MY bodily detritus and smashed Frito collection). It's probably still there.
@olivebee Yes! I have one of these too and it's the best thing! That rubber nose is like magic for picking up our corgi's hair.
@Jen Whartenby@facebook Grinnellllll! I couldn't believe we didn't get the first comment. Where you at, Grinnellians??
