    Wow. I can't believe I watched it anyway. "Colon Worm Wrangling" at its finest.

    in firefox select all and then right click to "view selection source" this will show you the html corresponding to what is currently on your screen after all the javascript has run.

    • jwz says:

      You haven't actually tried this, I assume. In Firefox, "Select All" does nothing on that page, and does not cause "View Selection Source" to appear.

      Anyway, I use Safari.

        I don't know about his wacky suggestion, but Firefox + Firebug let me view the DOM, which was handy. I think Safari has something like that built in.

      • gnuyen says:

        It doesn't visually, but if you right click outside the page after hitting ctrl a it gives the option for view selection source.

        It's basically an embed with this swf.

        • jwz says:

          Ok, there's a "View Selection Source" on the popup menu... which just shows me the exact same thing View Source does: the JavaScript code.

          Go ahead and make a page that embeds that .swf and tell me how well that works for you. Oh, how about that, it doesn't. You need the JS-generated args to the embed tag too.

          • gnuyen says:

            I did try it.. that's where I got the name of the swf, the added code was actually

            <embed src="NEJM_Jang_e16v1.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="" play="true" loop="true" scale="showall" wmode="window" devicefont="false" bgcolor="#ffffff" name="NEJM_Jang_e16v1" menu="true" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain" allowfullscreen="false" salign="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" align="middle" height="360" width="400">

            It's after the script tag

            • jwz says:

              Ah, right you are, the embed tag is shown.

              But it still doesn't work when I paste it into another page, even when I correct the src= url to be fully qualified, or when I add a <base href>. I again get the player but no video.

    So that's where that went.

    Still pictures of Loa Loa worms still freak me out more.

  5. rbradakis says:

    I also watched the whole thing. I was cheering for the wrangler to get the worm.

    That guy needs to eat something. The worm looks hungry. And mad. Feed the worm!

    i've read that absinthe was invented specifically as a tonic to rid the body of parasites. it's primary target being worms in the digestive tract.
    i wonder if that's true.
    if it is, then just show this clip to patrons right before directing them to the DNA's absinthe bar.

    Farnsworth: Anyhoo, your net-suits will allow you to experience Fry's worm infested bowels as if you were actually wriggling through them.

    Zoidberg: There's no part of that sentence I didn't like!

  11. mtgordon says:

    Looks like the bowel prep wasn't quite thorough enough.

    I can think of much worse things to come down a colon.
