Adventures in Odd Couples…

My morning class is quite energetic, gregarious and not the least bit shy about discussing any topic. Today, while discussing fears and phobias, we watched a few clips from a recent Fear Factor episode. The conversation then wandered onto the topic of a recently married Thai couple; The Queen of Scorpions married the King of Centepides. The Queen spent 32 days incased in a box with 3,400 scorpions, while the King spent 28 days snuggled up to 1,000 centipedes. The Queen’s wedding dress was adorned with a number of live scorpions. And here I’ve been thinking that the Fear Factor contestants are nuts for spending 2 or 3 minutes with the l’il critters.
