**OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:**
>!You can't expect the size of the parasite inside the wasp!<
**Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description?**
**Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.**
[*Look at my source code on Github*](https://github.com/Artraxon/unexBot) [*What is this for?*](https://www.reddit.com/r/Unexpected/comments/dnuaju/introducing_unexbot_a_new_bot_to_improve_the/)
Holy fuckington fuck. Why would he put that on his finger
He's going to give it a new home under his cuticle
Next on Unexpected: surgeons pulling something disproportionately large out of some Japanese guy.
I mean.. I've seen huge dildo and a bottle of vodca pulled out of mans ass
Strepsiptera are an order of insects thought to be closely related to beetles. The females parisitize other insects and leave only their reproductive organs hanging out of the wasp. The males fly around and search for females to mate with. The larvae hatch inside the female and then crawl out from inside of her into the outside world, then seek out a new host which they burrow inside of and start the cycle again.
So in this case, the japanese man grabing this "stepsister" or whatever "by the pussy" was the only way to save this horn(y)et?
I'll just showmyself out
What… did you just… say?
Something that makes people question freedom of speech.
There’s no “I” in team but there is a “U” in cunt
Just read the wiki entry and it's even more bizarre and grotesque than all that. The part that the guy grabbed is the head of the female strepsiptera like he said. When the males mate with them the female stays in the host insect while the male pierces the female's body between the head and thorax through "traumatic hypodermic insemination".
The entire lifecycle of these insects is a nightmare horrorshow. It all gets worse.
Read the wiki...watched the video...
I need therapy now...
Here, take two of these and loop until your mind is purged.
Yes, the "stepsister" was trapped in the "wasping-machine", and had to be slowly teased out.

And then: Surgeons pulling a parasite out of a parasite
What a terrible day to be literate. I gave you an upvote for who knows what unholy reason.
Under his foreskin
I'm going to use this as a pro-circumcision argument from now on
It would have cost you literally nothing to not type that.
The Venom origin remake did not translate well
Is it possible to vote someone up and out at the same time?
Probably isn't a cross species parasite like how humans can't get cordyceps (I'm sorry, the last of us is fiction) or how humans can't get fleas (we can get bit by fleas, but they can't grip our hair. They bite and let go straight away).
"Humans can't get cordyceps"
The bar for entry is a little high, we far outstrip any other creature in terms of neurons, and our systems aren't largely automatic like everything else cordyceps infects.
There no easy random chance way to get us to do the same thing it does to bugs.
For it to work on us effectively instead of just outright killing us it would have to be intelligent or grow up with us from the beginning, like it probably did with ants.
Given there's barely any species that even come close to us intellectually I think we're safe. Also were intelligently social so the second someone starts acting sus we know to eject them out the airlock. I'll reiterate and just say the bar to entry is just so incredibly high.
Also ants are cold blooded 🤷♂️
Nice among us reference (and I agree with you, even more because we don't eat only fungi to survive, and we have lots of different food sources and cleaning methods. A mind hacking organism would thrive easier on human if they were sexual or air transmissible, and made people prettier or funnier when infected)
Being warm blooded is probably enough to stop it from ever happening. Of course as global temperatures rise fungi will adapt to high temperatures and the human body temperature average is declining because of climate control so maybe we will meet in the middle some day.
It's only a matter of time
Pls bro dont jinx it☠
Seriously!!! That was the unexpected part for me, should have thrown that thing right in the fire.
I was thinking the same thing. I would handle this situation with a flame thrower. Giant hornet and parasite dealt with swiftly.
I was like don’t you dare to put it… NOOOOOO
And then that yellow jacket went ahead on to live a happy, wonderful life, stinging everything in it's sight!
That's a hornet. It's much bigger than a yellow jacket
Let me pop a quick "H" on the box so everyone knows it's hornets.
It's cut off but in the start of the video he surgically removes his capacity for fear. Then he picks up the wasp.
They're only a problem for humans if they manage to burrow in behind your eyes. He's completely safe.
Excuse me? That sounds like the worst option of them all. I wouldn't call that safe
Yeah it's fine. That way you can't see 'em.
He should have some fire to burn that thing.
Exactly my reaction, he's a fucking savage
ugh this must feel like taking out that popcorn kernel piece from between your teeth that’s been stuck in there for 3 hours.
Except the popcorn kernel is probably the size of a melon :P
And shoved right into your spine.
And eating you from inside out
Yeah, I expect it to feel extremely painful to pull out with a little relief at the end. That wasp has to heal from all that damage
Correction: it is a hornet, and not a wasp. Also I'm pretty sure they feel less pain than humans, and all of this will help them in the long run
Correction to the correction: a hornet is a wasp.
Correction to the correction of the correction: the hornet is in the was family, but nobody would ever call it a wasp when referring to it. They would call it a hornet.
Hornets are wasps.
Aren't ants technicly wasps? Is that a fact or did I imagine it?
Both Hymenoptera family, but ants are not wasps afaik.
[All hornets are wasps but not all wasps are hornets](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hornet)
Here's the thing. You said a "hornet is a wasp."
Is it in the same family? Yes. No one's arguing that.
As someone who is a scientist who studies wasps, I am telling you, specifically, in science, no one calls hornets wasps. If you want to be "specific" like you said, then you shouldn't either. They're not the same thing.
If you're saying "wasp family" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of Apocrita, which includes things from yellowjackets to tarantuala hawks to scolidae.
So your reasoning for calling a hornet a wasp is because random people "call the stingy ones wasps?" Let's get fire ants and bees in there, then, too.
Also, calling someone a human or an ape? It's not one or the other, that's not how taxonomy works. They're both. A hornet is a hornet and a member of the wasp family. But that's not what you said. You said a hornet is a wasp, which is not true unless you're okay with calling all members of the wasp family wasps, which means you'd call tarantula hawks, yellow jackets, and other insects wasps, too. Which you said you don't.
It's okay to just admit you're wrong, you know?
and it’s just above your asshole but you can’t reach it
More like dragging a super long booger out
How the fuck did he see that big ass parasite inside the wasp?
Yeah, why was he looking up a wasp's ass?
You do strange things when you’re horny
Hungry for apples? Nope I'm horny for hornets!
“What are you doing step-tweezers?!”
No kink shaming
Real question / answer (look at how content that wasp is on letting him take out the parasite it's not moving it's not freaking out in the beginning it was)
doctor: *probes wasps ass with pliers to pull out parasite butt plug*
wasp: " oh, fuck me, i'm about to cum."
The real gem is always in the comments.
Noted. Will avoid link.
Ah it's not that bad. Curiosity got the better of me so I looked.
It's weird like, but it's not like r/Sounding (I strongly advise against clicking that)
It's just some people who like animated girls dressed up like bees from what I can tell. And one pretty funny gif of a bee twerking
Aaaand he clicked the link
I'm deleting my account
maybe its in so much pain it shut down in shock
Bugs don’t feel pain. At least not in the sense of how we know it
What do you mean??? Teach ne
This article does a pretty decent job of explaining it
that article is complete garbage. it has one relevant piece of information about output neurons and the rest is baseless speculation.
This guy linked it like it was a scientific article but it’s just some dude giving his random thoughts on the question
What a stupid article. The physical distress component of pain (like if you were to pinch yourself) doesn't require emotions and their supportive biological components.
Well newborns also don’t have memories - does this mean they don’t feel pain? And also I don’t see any benefits which pain has over nociception for humans - quite the same as for insects. The article does raise interesting questions, but not very consistent on answering them.
I'm no Entomologist, but that wasp (actually it's a hornet btw) looks like it's struggling pretty frantically...
Don't worry, insects don't feel pain. They just experience intense, debilitating fear.
The parasite is big. Maybe those infected will have unusually shaped abdomen. It seem like that guy knows his wasps so he knows what to look out for.
Also [Strepsiptera](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strepsiptera) is the stuff of nightmare.
[The way they parasitized other insects and their mating is just nope nope nope.](https://www.wired.com/2015/01/absurd-creature-of-the-week-strepsiptera/)
This is certainly one wiki I don't want to see a "Relationship with humans" section in...
*oh no strepsiptera, what are you doing?*
Turns out the only "relationship" to humans is that a few people have considered the possibility of using the parasites to help control pest insect populations. Which sounds like a horrible idea to me, but what do I know.
Asking the real question…
They can both die in a fire for all I care.
If we didn't have vespids, every other insect you hate would multiply by the thousands. They control the population of other arthropods.
Fuck you and take my upvote
Can’t we just have thousands of spiders to replace them?
Fuck spiders, rather have buzzing insects than those stealthy fucks
Man spiders are better, just think, they don’t fly and they weave beautiful nets sometimes
If they could just stop placing those beautiful nets directly at face level, we could come to some sort of agreement.
Also if they could oh idk NOT FUCKING SHOWER WITH ME....creeps
Or if they are gonna do that then atleast have the courtesy to not dissappear as soon as i look away
They're trying to keep you safe from other bugs while you shower, stop being ungrateful
Yeah I let the spider over my house door stay, that fucker is probably protecting me from insects so he deserves his place
If they were there first technically you’re showering with them
Also they're usually way less agressive than wasps.
If you see a spider, just let them be, chances are they won't bother you if you don't bother them, since they're also scared as fuck
theres a huge mosquito problem at my place
my solution was to just let a few spiders make nest in my room
it didnt fix the problem but like, I see they're harmless and are catching a fuckton of mosquitos
between the disease carrying, annoying biters that leave itchy spots and the harmless bro that I just gotta remind that my desk is outside his limits every few months. I take my bros
they get fat and I don't get dengue
"harmless bro that I just gotta remind that my desk is outside his limits"
So basically a cat. You have a cat with eight legs that eats mosquitoes for you, sounds like a win-win to me
Don't have to feed it, don't have to clean up after it, it makes it's own bedding...
Why have a cat when you can have a spider?
found the r/spiderbros
Woah woah woah. Spiders are some of the most fascinating and awesome creatures on this planet.
I have phonophobia which is a phobia to a specific sound. For me that sound is bzzz so I appreciate that they're silent.
No because vespids and centipedes also control the spider population.
Stomp it on the floor and solve both problems
Vegans are gonna be mad
bet that hornet* is ungrateful.
[Wasps infected by Strepsipteran avoid all colony work, get fatter and have a longer life span.](https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-86182-6) Now she will die for her colony by working to death just like us.
What are these, American hornets?
Ticking the boxes for everything but the longer life span
And free healthcare. Bet that Japanese guy didn't charge.
Worse, japanese hornets
Thank you. I mainly came to the comments trying to find out what kind of parasite it was.
The... The guy said what kind of parasite it was in the first 5 seconds of the video
... welp, I'm clearly an idiot.
Not a wasp, it's a hornet. They don't sting, they bite. This is why at no point do you see a stinger.
All hornets are wasps. But not all wasps are hornets. 🐝🐝
Is that because they're all vespid?
Yes, all insects in the Vespidae family are considered wasps and that includes the subfamily Vespinae which all hornets belong to.
Im gunna put an H on the box so everybody knows its full of hornets
What are you talking about? Hornets can and will sting you
This. Unless it's a male
There was no stinger to be seen because I’m pretty certain this hornet was a drone, a male.
[Here’s](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=i7VMcMJBjD4) a video of Coyote Peterson getting stung by this very species of hornet.
Also, hornets are a genus of wasp.
It actually stopped fighting when he started pulling it out and continued to remain calm. I still hate those hornets and wasps

This is the funniest GIF I’ve ever seen, and it’s the perfect response to that comment
…who hurt you
This is the correct comment
What are you doing strepsistera? ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|scream)
Take my upvote and get the hell out.
Fuck you, dear sir.
Oh that was so gross but I wonder if it feels much better after that?
Let’s say you have the biggest shit inside of you. It’s 2 feet big and weights 30 pounds. For the past 2 weeks without shitting, your stomach hurts, then you sense that your stomach needs to shit. You ignore it bc you are too lazy. Then your friends come over without asking for entry and have a pillow fight. You tell them to get out but they are too busy hitting each other and so one of them jumps on your stomach and all that shit comes out. You feel embarrassed but at the same time relaxed and relieved. Your friends never come back but you just had the best experience you have ever experienced and decide to hold your shit everyday until you can’t hold it in.
Wot did I just read??
Just imagine it
🌸 Just imagine it 🌸
can confirm, usally i forget to use the bathroom and i go week without shitting usally this is fine with my body since it happens alot. but one time i didnt shot for a while. i felt fat and uncomfortable disgusted. i took lsd just for fun, i spend what felt like 10mins in the br taking the best shit i have ever taken, it felt like i spilled all my guts and problems away, i couldn't stop laughing because how good it felt to be free from all that shitt weight
I went on an 11 day hike in Philmont with the boy scouts when I was 17, and I ended up being semi constipated the entire time to where I pooped a little every day but never felt like I got it all out. It got worse and worse every day, until the very last morning I finally took the biggest shit of my life into a wooden box in the woods. While it was happening, I looked around and saw like 4 or 5 deer peacefully grazing around me. It was the most magical and relieving moment of my life. Then I hiked down the mountain, finally without feeling like I was lugging a sack of rocks in my abdomen, and got to base camp and took the first shower I'd gotten to take in nearly 2 weeks. What a time.
I hate when this happens
why do I feel like you are talking out of experience
just what I needed to watch right before bed.
Yep. No clue why I did that to myself.
Why the hell did I just keep watching it even after reading the title.
The hornet is going nuts until he starts pulling it out then it's like.. oh ok omg this feels good, I can roll with this and calms down.
If you gonna put it on your finger atleast wear freaking gloves
What do you think it’s going to do? Burrow into his skin like the scarabs from the Mummy?
If you watch again, the parasite is under its whole exoskeleton, visible at the base of the head! Yes....watch it over, and OVER AND OVEEEERRRR! If you don't it's ok, you'll just see it again in your dreams
nah. But thank you, though.
Forbidden mozzarella stick
You should be locked in a basement....
“Did he just pull out a joint from a bee wtf oh it’s a worm”
I love Water Boy.
So does the hornet live or die?
he saved that poor parasite from the wasp, now he can squish the wasp safely without harming the parasite
Live probably, this parasite doesn't directly kill the wasp anyways
I mean, at what point isn’t it just cheaper to get a new wasp?
Never thought I'd feel bad for a wasp.
Dermatology/pimple popper recruiters right now: “Sir. You’re hired.”
Wow that’s gotta be lol 15% of its body weight
This is an incredibly skilled individual.
Imagine being able to grasp the wasp firmly enough so that it doesn’t move, but not so hard that it gets crushed. All the while, pulling out that worm-like parasite without breaking the body or crushing the wasp in the process.
i have mercy for every creature except these stupid parasites
they can go fuck themselves, but stay fucking away from other's body
Well, that’s a good a spot as any to turn off the internet for tonight.
