Stand Back People, I’m Going Full Nerd

Hulton Archive

I love the Ted Talks. And my latest favorite, from science writer Ed Yong, is about the wonderful world of…parasites.

I will admit – this stuff may not be for everybody. But I believe it answers some important questions. Like, why do teenage girls flock to Justin Bieber concerts? Why is it you can’t WAIT to get in the water this summer? And, why do I have the urge to lay around on my couch and not do ANYTHING productive?

The answer, as you’ll see in all three cases, is very possibly…parasites.

And, bonus – Ed Yong is a funny guy. If you want more of him, here’s a link to his “Not Exactly Rocket Science” blog.

Now, sit back and enjoy. And, you might want to put the “gummy worms” away while you watch this one.
