Finally, someone else (worms) has to worry more about the world being a computer simulation than we do.

I love knowing that I'll get to be astonished almost every day from between now and when I die. This is today's astonishment. What will the morrow bring?

Soon the Open Worm creators hope to make a virtual version of C. elegans available online so people can interact with it via a web browser.
How does this differ from either "Worms Armageddon" or that Worm game on my 'phone?
