    Giant earth worms have been discovered on the Isle of Rum.

    Not quite on the same scale as the movie... they must be very bored on Rum.

    Oh. All worms keep growing. These ones just haven't been killed while still small.
    You should post this on the flooding thread - they will help drainage.

    According to my mother I used to eat earthworms as a child. Not the whole thing though, just half and then I'd line up the other half, presumably with other halves, in my toddle truck.
    Random bit of trivia for today.

    I once was found eating wasps by my mother...

    Did you faint because I wrote 'I once got found'? Wouldn't blame, atrocious language.

    No, because you were eating wasps. I hate wasps! Did you get stung?

    No... they'd been gassed and I'd managed to get into the room and then was sat there eating them... I think I was about 9 months old?

    I'm allergic to wasp stings... as in lay me out sick for three days. Not life threatening. But not pretty either.

    I was once found by a woman with a wasp waist, to be eating my mother before I was woken up. Thankfully, Sigmund was long dead when this happened and I didn't need his advice. Many years later, I'm happy that putting that dream down to eating cheese just before bedtime as being the cause was the best possible answer to what caused that dream.

    Big worms aren't going to be a problem for your lawn. If you'd an infestation of megatherium, then you'd have a problem:

    Could be a very small hand! I have worms as big as that in my garden.
