I'm reminded of a skit on the old MTV show The State where there's a class of kids and they are talking about how it's treason to say that you're going to kill the president, even if you're just joking, and every time the words come out of someone's mouth a bunch of men in black rush in and drag them away. "So you mean I can't say, even joking, 'Hey, we should kill the president....' Hey! Let go of me! I was just asking!" Sad that in truth we aren't too far from that.

That Morgellon's Syndrome looks like a bunch of lint balls in the pictures posted on their site. From what they show and for how little they explain what we're seeing in those pics I have say the jury is still out on that insurance scam.
