No I don’t have fatal familial insomnia, but I have just been swimming and came to the lab to work on my courseworks. I felt something in the outer part of my ear, and pulling it out found it to be a beetle encased in wax and swimming in fluid.
I shit you not.
I had felt something in there recently but thought it was just a waxy build up. Anyway can this sneaky little critter have caused me any harm while it was in there? Laying eggs or eating my brain or something? It was an orangy little bugger, like a common house beetle. I suppose it is remotely possible that he was already floating in the pool, and found his way into my ear, but then my ear feels a lot different (in a good way I hope)since I pulled him out.
