The experience of living with a stomach parasite is not something a decent person would ever want to share. Which brings me to the point of this article: the parasites I contracted in Guatemala.
Following his deportation from Guatemala, anti-virus mogul turned public train wreck John McAfee is back on U.S. soil. It doesn't seem that he's back on solid ground though, so to speak. Earlier this morning McAfee gave a characteristically far-out interview on CNBC's Squawk Box.
Scientists have bred mosquitoes in Guatemala that will cause mosquito genocide when they mate with normal mosquitoes. The idea is to thwart disease spread by the insects, in this case dengue fever.
The world is trying to swallow Guatemala, one terrifying sinkhole at a time. The latest occurrence woke 65-year-old Inocenta Hernandez, making her think there'd been a car crash outside. There wasn't. The sound was a 40-foot chasm opening directly under her bed.
Finally, someone got a helicopter and filmed the Guatemalan Gates of Hell. The 200-feet deep sinkhole—which swallowed a clothing factory—was caused by tropical storm Agatha's torrential rains. What I want to see now is someone exploring the bottom.
"This can't be real" was my first thought. Then I checked the source: The Guatemalan government. This sinkhole appeared last sunday in a street intersection of Ciudad de Guatemala. Just looking at the photo gives me vertigo. [Updated]
