I was eating a pistachio nut once, cracked it open, threw the nut in my mouth and realised the nut was already wet. Spit it into my hand and noticed a maggot was crawling on the nut. I totally freaked "I ate a maggot, I ate a maggot", then my little sis (7yrs old) came in the room and looked at me "why did you eat a magnet?" hehe.

If you put a drop of alcohol on a scorpion, it'll sting itself to death.

I learned that from a penguin.

It was actually my cat who saved me, too. If he hadn't knocked something over, I would not have discovered the scorpion. But like bonosgirl said, they only sting if provoked--but I could have accidentally provoked it by rolling over and touching it or something. It was the first time I'd ever seen one, but boy you know what they are when you see it. Normally I remove all such critters from my house in a tupperware bowl or something but this thing was not coming back inside so I ... yeah, I stepped on it until I heard a good crunch.

Angela, there is one variety that is really very poisonous to humans but probably not fatal. I don't know if this one was that one or not.

The good news is that scorpions prey on centipedes! Last year my cat woke me up (again) in the night and there was a huge freaking centipede on the floor....it was at least 6". It was too big to just step on so I caught it and took it outside and told it never to come near my house again. My friend had one crawl up his pajama leg during the night a few months ago.

meegannie, that is...awful. That sounds like the equivalent of pouring salt on a slug.

lol at zoney... been there, done that

Iced tea. It was in the bottom of the glass. I thought it was one of those nice thin ice cubes. You know, the ones that have been in the tea for a while and are fun to bite? Well, when I felt the antennae on my tongue, I knew I was wrong.
