    I love the “no danger” part in the upper left. Ah, innocent naivety….

    I’d seen some story on this not too long ago about how people in the U.S. still do this as a way to lose weight. =\

    @Kurtt:
    Seriously?

    And then what, get it surgically removed, or what?

    @RSIxidor:They have a posion that will kill a tapeworm and not harm the person, then you just shit it out.

    I guess I just can’t help but think about pictures of people removing them out of their noses.

    @RSIxidor:
    Surgically???

    Only for 10 meter monsters.

    Tapeworms are old school.

    Tapeworms have been used many, many times as an acceptable weight loss means. In the 1920’s chocolate coated tapeworm sections (egg sacks) were commonly sold in many countries.

    Killing the tapeworm(s) when you reach your weight target is easily done by several pharmaceuticals and home remedies (hot milk should work). There are almost no problems with tapeworms if managed properly.

    To be honest, if you are a fat-ass, no self-control, shit stain of a person – tape worms are an acceptable solution.

    @RSIxidor:
    I am not aware of a tapeworm that could live in your nose. There are not enough nutrients there.

    @RSIxidor: you may have been thinking about one of the many of parasitic worms that live in the body. I know tapeworms live in peoples intestines, but the eggs can go to the brain, but you be long dead before you can pull one of them out of your nose.

    Tapeworms are actually pretty passive little fellers. They do not move like snakes, but just cling by their scolex (head) to the intestinal wall.

    @ack:
    It didn’t live in the nose, but it was pulled out of the nose. I could have sworn the book (possibly a text book) said it was a tapeworm.

    If you can get past the icky wiggle factor;
    Bovine tapeworms cysts are safe, and work quite well for inducing weight loss in humans. Though, it is recommended to remove them every four months; before they reproduce to control their size.

    Wildly advertised in different preparations (dried, bottled, chocolate coated) in the 20s, a tapeworm consumed such ways would have been dead long before they were in your digestive system. Live cysts should be eaten to gain the desired effect.

    Under NO circumstances should one purposely ingest pork or fish tapeworms; they can really mess you up!

    @nyokki:
    Be glad that you can’t; it’s unimaginable unless you’ve been there.
    Tapeworms, used in this way, are more symbiotic than parasitic.

    @nyokki:
    Users may become anemic, so it’s recommended to take vitamins.

    @nyokki: @jediadept: Tapeworms used to be a very common ailment in the US. They are fully symbiotic if managed properly (keep them small/young). Like I said – if your a fat-ass, it is a good solution. Stomach banding also works, but that’s invasive and frankly an unnecessary surgery. Additionally, unless you are disgustingly fat, your medical insurance will not pay for stomach banding. Ingest a tapeworm segments. Purge your intestine every 3-4 months. Repeat until you have your weight at a normal level. Cost? Hardly anything. Besides this there is a positive psychological element to the tapeworm. The concept is… Read more »

    @ack:
    While not as opinionated, I used to think along similar lines as you.
    I then discovered that not all weight problems stem solely form gratuitous over-eating.
    I wouldn’t wish the obesity experiences on the average person, but in your educated yet glib case, I pass the baton to you.
