OK, the strange pseudopodous thingie growing on my eyeballs is called a penguiculum, which I gather is either a little penguin or a penguin's butt - what is the most interesting word the medical community has ever assigned you?

coccidioidomycosis, or San Jauquin Valley fever. If memory serves it is a fungial infection, the spores of which are found in the dust in certain parts of the SJV. Many people have it and never have a symptom and other become quite ill, as I did at age 7. Missed a half year of school. The cure then was just plenty of bedrest and high vitamin "C" intake.

If it's a 'white head' (like a black head=sebaceous deposit with dirty stopper) then maybe the origin is the same as that often posited for penguin, i.e. White head (from the Welsh, pen gwyn)

I once had an arthroscopic plantar fasciotomy. It's more impressive than saying you had a heel spur fixed. Fixed my heel pain, AND kept me out of the plant for two of the hottest weeks of the summer.

I missed both schistosomiasis and billharzia, sounds like a couple nowadays, eh?

Apparently the (deeper) root of penguin is fat, so I guess from growing up in the tropics the fat bubbled out of my eyeball(s) and made cornea-freckles, only they're yellow and pseudopodic...

Kinda makes my toes curl, actually!
