Hope you haven’t finished a large meal recently.

Crazy things happen in 2’s.

A day after we found out about that rugby player who discovered his opponents tooth embedded into his forehead, a much more stomach curdling story along similar lines has emerged.

Look away now if you fell squeamish at the mere thought of an infestation of fly larvae INSIDE YOUR HEAD! Oh wait, I just told you right there.

Eeeep!

Yes that’s right.

According to media reports:

A man in the United States who had recently been on a trip to the Central American nation of Belize discovered five active bot fly larvae living near the top of his skull, which were living in a 2mm to 3mm-wide pit under his skin.

“I’d put my hand back there and feel them moving. I thought it was blood coursing through my head”

“I could hear them. I actually thought I was going crazy.”

Aaron Dallas from Colorado was initially told that he was suffering from the shingles, but after a continuation of unusual feelings within his head, he went back for a further examination, and his doctor Kimball Spence made the spine shivering discovery.

“It was pretty obvious that something was going on”.

“There was an open pit. You could see a little activity, not necessarily the larvae, but a fluctuation of the fluid in the pit,” Dr Spence told media.

Yipes! watch a man have a South American bot fly removed from his back!

Just imagine having those living in your skull…

Jail mysteries: French criminal escapes prison with chopper, while military sky dives into Colorado big house.

Off target

Irony, a word derived from the French language, a word that popped into my head when reading about what happened at a prison in south-east France.

A daring, and arrogant, flying escape from a very tenacious French crook.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp reports:

French criminal jailed for having organised a helicopter-assisted prison break has again escaped from a French prison using a helicopter.

Pascal Payet, 43, escaped from Grasse prison, in south-east France, after a helicopter hijacked by four masked men landed on the roof of the prison, said a source close to the investigation.

The helicopter landed some time later at Brignoles, 38 kilometres north-east of Toulon, on the Mediterranean coast.

Those French dudes sure know how to escaping prison in style.

Now, just a thought, could it be possibly that Pascal Payet and his gang got the idea from an unlikely source…?

This is a clip from an old Australian TV soap called Prisoner, aired from 1979-1986.

You might want to skip to about half way through, otherwise you’ll have to sit through some really horrible Australian accents the generation of Aussies up from me seems to have acquired.

As you’ll see its really lame stuff, but could this story be a case of art imitating life?

Fun times for all.

And since we’re speaking of prisons and air travel…

It’s been reported that in Colorado, USA, a squad of 25 military paratroopers mistakenly landed inside the perimeter of a state prison in the early hours of the morning.

Prison guards quickly escorted the clearly disorientated troopers off the grounds “without violence”, glad to know.

Apparently the US Air Force is keeping a lid on it, officially saying that they are unaware of any such incident.

Update: The US military finally commented today, CNN reported, but were not generous with the details.

“Those were Special Operations Command forces conducting routine training,” Army Col. Hans Bush, a spokesman for the command at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, said Monday. He declined to identify the units that landed at Fremont Correctional Facility but said the target was Fremont County Airport.
