Destination Truth

No, it's not an article about the Freedom of Information Act

It is, however, an article about... THE MONGOLIAN DEATH WORM.

That's right, you heard me.

Slight hitch: said worm (anything up to five feet long, possibly red, possibly black) has never actually been found, although the classic reality TV series "Desination Truth" had a really good go at it in 2007, apparently. But as the UB Post, Mongolia's only independent English semi-weekly newspaper, reveals: Although, scientists from many counties such as Russian, France and Czech's scientists came to find the worm in Mongolia, nobody of them could not see that worm.

By the way, definitely watch the video of Destination Truth's intrepid explorer Josh (and his necklace) introducing his team. It shows clips of crazy Josh EATING A BIG SPIDER. And he says things like "We're going to try and pull off an incredible paranormal investigation".
