Killer Amoebae

Interesting news coming from the CDC about a variety of amoeba found in lake water that can kill you by eating your brain. See the original article.

Six deaths reported in the US this year in southern states (Florida, Texas, and Arizona).

Granted, you're more likely to be struck by lightning, but it's still creepy.
