Warning: I got a parasight from drinking bottled water that had been left out for several days.
I began having some horrible digestive issues last month. I finally bit the bullet and went to a GI guy. He ran some test to exclude anything serious, and finally deduced that it was being caused by bottled water I left out of the fridge and kept drinking for a few days. Who knew you could get a parasight from this? I've routinely done this and never picked up anything before. Just a warning that you should refrigerate bottled water and other beverages after opening up.
Yikes, op. I don't reuse bottled water in plastic, because of the chemicals that leech into the water after time. I got mono from the gym years ago. I was shaking after a workout, and my water bottle hit the nozzle. Mono can live on surfaces for hours. Gross.
[bold] Oh dear! [/bold]
You probably got it from licking ass, not your bottled water. Nice try though.
My apologies, dear heart at r2. That should be "tests," not "test."
Sure you did, OP. More like from the butthole you've been sucking out.
Or it could be from that ass you were licking last week at the tubs. Slut.
Parasight. How the hell did you come up with that, OP?
Maybe he shared the water bottle with someone who just rimmed a guy's ass?
LOL, I WISH I had gotten it from eating ass, cuz it would mean that I would've had sex within the last six months. No, pretty sure it's from the water bottle.
Don't think it's from bottled water OP.
OP could it be possible someone took a sip of that water, after they just rimmed some guy's ass?
Or could it be possible someone grabbed the water bottle, after using the bathroom?
OP, invest in a spellcheck function. You seem to need it more than most.
As laboratory scientist with extensive experience in parasitology I find this unlikely. What parasite did you have?
Lol! Remember when they tested the water bottles on the View? Joy's bottle had traces of feces on it.
Oh yikes, you're right. Parasite...my bad!
um ... parasite. Geez.
Don't recall the name of the parasite. Some latin term.
I think you've got a brain-eating parasight. You in danger, gurl!
Unh-huh. This. Didn't. Happen.
Are you a cactus? I'm usually able to finish a bottle of water in under 24 hours.
What meddy kayshun did they give you four ur parasight, OP? That will help us narrow the diagnosis.
Your parasight came parasailing in and got into your open bottle.
Youse gots to be careful OP. Ya just gots to.
[quote]Don't recall the name of the parasite. Some latin term.
What can you see with parasight?
You could get a lurgy or two if particularly you left the bottle in direct sunlight. There are a few nasties in bottled water that once opened and not chilled multiply enough to cause stomach upsets.
You might also not want to see the inside of a water cooler just before it gets cleaned. One memorable one I decommissioned looked like it had been attacked by algae.
this was the name of the parasite:
At least it didn't mess with your eyesite!
Dead people, r27.
I've been drinking room temperature water from jugs for years...never gotten sick from it.
Where do you live, OP? Africa?
Does anyone like my joke?
Funny guy at r26, it's Caesar.
So much we can't do. Well I'm going to take my chances and keep reusing my plastic water bottles.
Once I've brushed my teeth, I don't continue to drink something. I polish it off first.
Yes, I did R34. Many a true word spoken in jest and all that...
I thought parasight was what one of the gang on Gilligan's Island got from eating radioactive carrots.
I'm sorry Miss, but with all due respect I have my own problems.
Is parasightedness a disability?
[quote]Is parasightedness a disability?
Yes, but since it's an invisible disability, prepare to be judged if you use the DART bus while on the Land.
Of course, if the dreaded Shigella returns from its long-dormant state to seek revenge...

This is just the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. Unless you took the actual water bottle to a lab and had it tested, there is absolutely no way you could know that it was the culprit.
Did you handle money during this time? Did you open a door? Use a public washroom? Press a button in an elevator? Take public transit? Eat at a restaurant, or eat, really, anywhere? Did you go to work? Use a phone or a computer keyboard? Did you go to see a movie or have a drink at a bar? Did you shake hands with anyone?
Every single one of those things is thousands of times more likely to have caused your problem.
Thank you, OP! You have saved me, perhaps, from getting a parasite. I often leave bottled water out. Am depressed, but that's no excuse. Sorry for what you had to go through, but again: thanks for posting. Take care.
Duhhh? Who drinks old, melted water left out in the sweltering sun to rot? Of course you got an infection! Duhhh!
We need more animal rights!
Don't teast OP - he became a parapleajick after going parasayling.
Then how can he hold is parasaul?
I thought that this *had* to be a parody, what with "parasight" occurring twice in the OP's post. This was the funniest thing I've read in days.
Ok, OP, I'll see your pair a sights and raise you a pair a sols!
What r46 said. MEAT IS MURDER, PEOPLE! SAVE THE KITTIES!
Ugh, I am so over people everyone moving away from plastic bottled water because of chemicals. It is already so hard to drink the daily recommended amount of H2O, and plastic makes water easy to carry anywhere.
Im not drinking water out the faucet that hasn't had a chance to distill. And the thought glass bottles being the next thing is just annoying, expensive and hazardous. Youre damned if you do and damned if you dont.
R53 no matter how long you leave water after it comes out of the faucet it won't spontaneously distill - you'd need a whole distillation set-up for that. Do you mean filtered water? Just fill a filter jug in the morning, put it in the fridge, take the previous day's jug from the fridge and fill your refillable water bottle from that.
I don't understand what's wrong with tap water. It's tested frequently and always safe. In LA, it's delicious.
Can we make parasight the new graxy?
R56 I second this.
No you didn't you fucking liar. You ate ass and got a worm. Big deal. Just go to the doctor and get some medicine, but don't lie about it. We know, and you do to.
I third parasight.
Your lukky ewe dint get dem umeebuhs. Daze a bich.
OP, why are you sipping on a water bottle for days?
Gross. But it's certainly not what gave you a parasite, provided a mosquito didn't lay her larva in there.
OP, next time drink alcohol--you might get an insight.
This thread is useless without pictures of said parasight.
What jandra of parasight was it, anyway?
Does that mean you couldn't see for a couple of days?
It means he's now able to give psychic readings.
Who the hell drinks room-temperature water from the same bottle for days at a time? Bleah!
I use a plastic water bottle all the time, but I empty it out and refill it with fresh cool water at least every hour or two.
And like most North American cities, my tapwater is delicious and is perfectly safe.
Got any of that water left, OP? Ebay it, there's definitely a market...
OMG I love you OP
I had a reusable water bottle with a flip-up straw. I rinsed it out every day and thought that was enough. Eventually, I started having tummy troubles. This went on for a couple of weeks - it wasn't anything horrible, just grumbling and loose stools. I finally took the straw out of where it was hooked to the bottle and attacked it with a q-tip. It looked like it was full of chocolate frosting. I pitched the bottle and my stomach was fine after that.
I keep a bottled water on my nightstand and take several drinks from it throughout the night. I leave it there during the day so sometimes it can be there for a week or more. I've never caught a parasight although I did shit out a parakeet and now I know where it came from!
I'm getting both audio and visual of Miss Dorothy Brown exclaiming, "Someone wipeded his uranus all over MY water bottle. I new this was a middle class hotel, butt I didn't expect this! The nerve!"
R71, I do the same thing only I don't drink the water out of the bottle weeks later. I always buy huge bags of ice from the supermarket and my ice box is always stocked with ice. During the day and well into the evening I ways have a glass full ice and water. No matter how gold it is, I have to have my ice water with a straw. I don't like to drink from a glass.
People who say there is nothing wrong with tap water are nuts and delusional! There is a difference in taste in bottled water verses tap water. Tap water has a lot of chemicals in it. Check out the Brita water filters that connect to faucets and observe the filters thereafter the tap water streamed through, it's cruddy and repulsive.
OP, I never heard that about water although I have heard you never ever leave your plastic water bottles in direct sunlight. For example, like the hot direct intense sunlight that streams into your car.The hot sun ignites the chemicals that are contained within the plastic of your water bottle.
I was sick with major food poisoning a couple a months ago ,and I have never been sick like that in my life! It was truly hell on earth and I had to be rushed to the hospital. The food posing came from something I ate ,but not from consuming water from a plastic water bottle.I hope whatever you have, I hope you get better OP, take care.
This thread is hilarious!
I never had a parasight but I got Molluscum after I was groped by a grouper.
This is my chance to introduce you all to [italic]Aqua Teen Hunger Force[/italic].
The South Bronx Parasite Diet:
You had to have eated ass, just before you drank the bottled water. I don't see how else this could happen.
R29 way way way way way too far out there
Parasight? Did this cause the growth of extra eyeballs in your intestine?
Sounds like that recent cyclospora (sic?) outbreak to me.
So lay off the OP, guys. He doesn't rim dirty assholes. He just likes to eat at the Olive Garden.
"If I knew back then, what I know now...if I understood the what, when, why and how
Now it's clear to me...What I should've done
'Cause parasight is 20/20, 20/20
Is cyclospora related to cryptosporidium?

If he hadn't misspelled "parasite," this thread would have had about 5 replies at best.
I briefly had an Ex who liked to refer to certain people as "Para Skranks". I have no idea what that means. He was suburban Italian. I was a vegetarian at the time, so it was years before I came to understand, "Skrimps".
