Indestructible Creatures Flatworms

Have you heard of a Flatworm?

They range in size from a grain of rice to a foot long, damn that would be a long ass worm. They are leaf-shaped creatures that usually live in water, many of them have an incredible ability to regenerate or regrow their body parts.

Now if these worms are chopped in half each half will become a whole new worm. In experiments scientists have even cut a flatworm into a hundred tiny parts and every part grew into a new worm.

Technical stuff The flatworms, flat worms, Platyhelminthes, Plathelminthes, or platyhelminths are a phylum of relatively simple bilaterian, unsegmented, soft-bodied invertebrates

In other family news I have Leo here all day as he sill feels sick but I can tell he is improving, I took him to a doctor this morning who said it is just a bug and he should be ok tomorrow. His mother has been feeling unwell today herself. Also Blain is off school with the same thing. I hope I don’t end up with it.

Five things Friday No:4

Car green paint

It’s Friday and so I am doing five things Friday, the day didn’t start out too good as I over slept then when I was dropping Leo off at school I misjudged and side swiped the gate and got green paint on the car.

I sent Tim a text and he went on about complaining to the school because I told him the gate moved and that was why I hit the gate but I don’t know how much it moved it did move a bit but not a lot.

So this weeks five things are:

Green paint

Car polish

Lost brooch

A new top

Red hair dye (for Leo)
