The disgusting lump of goo that was filmed in the North-Carolina sewers isn’t of alien origin after all. The city officials report that it is actually a fairly common worm, tubifex tubifex, that lives in ponds or sewers. Reason why it is contracting and acting like that egg where the face cravlers lived from the Alien movies, is because it is reacting to the light from the camera, which is pretty hot. I can’t really decide which is worse, the unknown blob turning out to be a mutated tampon or the fact that those tubifex worms are common in our sewer pipes. Every time I flush the toilet now I picture this tubifex monstrosity jumping out of the pot and nailing me in the face. Oh and also according to Wikipedia it is super endurable:
“The worms can survive with little oxygen by waving hemoglobin rich tail-ends to exploit all available oxygen. They can also survive in areas so heavily polluted with organic matter that almost no other species can endure. By forming a protective cyst and lowering its metabolic rate, T. tubifex can survive drought and food shortage. Encystment may also function in the dispersal of the worm.”
I’d like to know what is the purpose of these tubifex worms ? Why do we have shit like that on planet earth ? What is the point of a life form that vegetates in the darkness and eats our doodoo ? Is there a possibility that when I die I’ll be reincarnated as a tubifex worm ? Next time a Jehovas witness knocks on your door invite him in and show him the video. And over a nice cup of tea ask him if god has a plan for all of us, then what is his plan for the tubifex worms ?
