    Best list I've read in a very long time. A lot of information I didn't know which is kind of rare on list sites.

    Great job.

    A fantastic list, thank you for sharing it. I had no idea there were that many parasitic insects before. And I had no idea nature was that scary. These are some serious horror story creatures, especially #1.

      Barely the tip of the tip of the iceberg! Parasite species are believed to outnumber non-parasitic species and may manipulate almost every aspect of the ecosystem. 😀

      Kind of makes you want to treat all those SF stories based on “parasitic aliens taking over people” with more respect, doesn’t it? 🙂

      Politicians didn’t make the top ten because their methods lack the beauty, sophistication and intellect we see in worms, fungi and insects.

    Who votes year after year like zombies thinking that they will be better off because the government will take care of them because some democratic politician told them so.

      What? Republicans are far more guilty of misleading the dumbest common denominator.

    I was disgusted while looking at reading at this article but I couldn't keep away because the subject is so interesting and fascinating O_O

    I don't know. Some of the careful use of memetics and such you see from their campaign staff can be pretty impressive and scary, but that's not really the politicians themselves, so you're right.
