"I like him and I like it that we both are up for a real challenge."

Kanchana Ketkaew, 36, set a world record in 2002 for spending 32 days in a glass cage with 3,400 scorpions.

Bunthawee Siengwong, 29, set a Thai record for enduring 28 days with 1,000 centipedes.

They got married on Valentine's Day in a haunted house.

Her dress had, not sequins, not lace - scorpions. Living, crawling scorpions. Bunthawee, as can be seen in this lovely photo, with centipede in mouth, kissed his bride.

Want another icky bug-related story? You're in luck!

Belgrade, home of men who put pencils in their penises, is also home to a woman who was a home for an 11 centimeter long intestinal worm. She wasn't aware of this until doctors removed it - from her eye.

The worm most likely belongs to the Ascaris family, a common intestinal parasite in pigs and people.

There are photos of the worms here but I wouldn't look if I were you. Really. Seriously.

Ewww aahhhh fuck.

Why didn't you warn me!

But I did warn you. And it is that very warning you took as me spurring you on. But when I say, "I wouldn't look if I were you," I mean, "I wouldn't look if I were you."

And those were, for the most part, not photos of just one worm - but many worms in a slithering mass of internal ickiness.
