It's called a bacteriophage, and they are do not like you.
I hate it when I sweat after a sixer of Pabst and they get wasted and start partying.
we're just their planets.
I’ve been sick for like 2 weeks, I think I must have 16 billion
Billions Of Them Are Crawling All Over You Right Now
I thought the answer was "little goblins of sexiness"
If it didn't look like a spider, I wouldn't be afraid of it. Having seen it, it's making my skin crawl worse than the bass player's girlfriend.
That one was so ugly it looks like they had to put a bag over it’s head
Actually Phages can be very beneficial to us. But.....some are meanies too. Basically they are a virus that devours bacteria. There is a lot of research going on to use them to kill bacteria that have grown resistant to antibiotics.
Oh yeah.....some Phages can be cool......and they look like aliens to boot
This thread is right under the <Does anyone...
eat anymore> one.
I've had blind dates scarier than that.
Some are just straight thugs

And what brought this post to light?
I was just surfing the web saw the photo, and it gave me the willies. Figured I'd share. Plus... science!
But Gergo is right, they may look super evil but they are not totally evil - in fact they can do a lot of good.
"These spidery-looking viruses may be the most abundant life-form on the planet. HIV, Hepatitis C, and Ebola have given viruses a bad name, but microscopic phages are the good guys of the virology world. Each phage specializes in overtaking certain strains of bacteria—for example, staph, strep, and E. coli—which they attack and use as a host to multiply. To invade a host microbe, a phage uses proteins on its own surface to bind with proteins on the host cell, creating a passageway through which the phage can inject its genes."
