"And as they're telling us to stay calm and seated, I see a maggot looking back at me and I'm thinking, 'These are anaerobic, flesh-eating larvae that the flight attendants don't have to sit with.'"</blockquote>

Um, no. Yes they are larvae but they are not anaerobic (well, the ones I worked with in labs during my BSc Biochemistry were not). They are not flesh eating - they eat decaying matter, not live flesh. Yes, they are used medically to eat away dead flesh on burns patients, but they do not eat the rest of the patient. They cannot look at you. *facepalm*

two: anything can look back at you ;-) my mother and I once made what turned out to be an excess of jelly. for several days my mother would open the fridge and look in and complain that there was more jelly - looking back at her ;-)
