The adjective "awesome" is thrown about willy-nilly, but in this case it is entirely appropriate. It's definitely not for the faint-hearted, but here is an awesome blog post from Carl Zimmer on some cutting edge research taking place at Yale. I first heard about this work a year ago when I met one of the researchers at a party - there were rumored to be videos, but they were "too much for You Tube." Yikes. Anyway, the videos are embedded in the post. Two little words - "explosive eversion."


  1. Let's see if they're too much for Vimeo. They've been uploaded for 14 hours, and so far they're still there.

  2. I think one could claim undue censorship if they are - this is science, dude!
