There is a type of sea louse that eats the tongues of fish and then attaches itself to the fish to become it's new tongue.

That is actually awesome. Like the parasite that makes snails' eyes look like caterpillars so birds eat their eyes off and pass on the parasite in their droppings.

But they have been, that's strange enough.

It is said that nobody but David Lynch himself knows what made the "baby" in Eraserhead move. Not even the actors themselves know. Rumors state that:

-Animatronics (far ahead of their time if so) were used
-A rabbit was made up and placed vertically under the desk (this is the most likely option, considering that the baby and the rabbit had similar facial structures and the pillow was unrealistically dipped inwards. Also, this would explain why David doesn't want to tell anyone- he might be charged with animal abuse)
-other.

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliaphobia is the fear of long words.
Just too bad for the hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliaphobic person who was pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis which is a ling condition often seen in coal miners who inhale too much of the dust.
