Itchy-rump syndrome? No, these elephants are playing, and science has no idea why. picked by plurk 5 months ago

Morgellons: A hidden epidemic or mass hysteria?
I meet Paul in a pub in a Birmingham suburb. He shows me pictures he's collected of his fibres. On his laptop, a grim parade of images flicks past. There are sores, scabs and nasal hairs, each magnified by a factor of 200. In each photo there is a tiny coloured fibre on or in his skin. picked by plurk 5 months ago
