The good Rev. Zafod donated a new microscope with a built-in digital video camera, and although it's not the highest-resolution on the planet, it's sure a lot less shaky than holding a camera against an eyepiece. I recently culled many hours of microscope footage of (mostly) fresh-water animalcules down to 8 short videos of 3 to 6 minutes. This one, with music by Rev. Two Beans, is my favorite, because it is really pretty gross. As the water drop dries up, the Philodina rotifers from my birdbath get crowded closer and closer together. The final shot shows a rotifer munching out inside the EYE of a mosquito larva. Hot action! A couple of Cladocerans or "water fleas" are shown at the beginning, one with diarrhea and the other afflicted with parasites. This is probably the grosses of the series. The funny thing is, billions of much uglier creatures live in your mouth and your hair follicles -- not to mention your intestines. Praise "Bob"!
