Belize: Vacation Paradise

Thanks to Walter Satterthwait for the tip. Photos and video at the link.

9NEWS - Article - Carbondale resident returns from trip with unexpected souvenirs: "CARBONDALE - A few days after he returned from Belize, Aaron Dallas could not help but notice several large bumps on his head that seemed to get bigger and more painful as each day passed.

'Each day it got worse and worse. The pain started as a minor inconvenience, then by the end of it, it felt like someone was driving a nail through my head,' Dallas said.

When the pain reached extreme levels, Dallas sought help from the medical field. One doctor told him the bumps were bug bites, another said they were shingles, but as it turned out the bumps were something a lot more creepy.

'I went to a doctor on Thursday. He pulled my hair back and I believe his exact words were, 'Oh my god,' because he could see them moving,' Dallas said. "


  1. Well Bill, this is just about as gross as it gets. I hereby vow to never go to Belize.

  2. I report, you decide.

    This has been grossing out Dave Barry's blog for a couple of days. Truly disgusting.

    Global warming should have this all making its way to the US soonish if not here already.

    That was incredibly disgusting. It's only a matter of time before it's novelized.

  6. Thanks, Todd, for the comforting thought.

    Gerard, better get to work on that novel.

    I'm not even going to click through to find out what it is. I'm just repeating to myself--it's an urban legend, it's an urban legend.

  8. Right, and with urban legend photos and video, too.
