  1. That's so crazy!

    I remember watching a video about parasites that infect snails and control their minds, they force them to the top of leaves where birds can eat them, and then the parasite takes control of the bird! That's nuts!

  2. If scientist find out how to mind control humans what would be the purpose of living any more? I know this research can be beneficial but at the same time it's bad.
