Casting a fire ant colony with molten aluminum
Not saying that killing ants just because it’s cool. But hey.
I’ve seen this post and the original video before.
That ant colony belongs to an invasive species of fire ant (called Red Imported Fire Ants or RIFAs) which cause more harm to the local environment than good. Researchers are experimenting with extremely high temperatures as a means to dispose of invasive insect species and, just so you know, molten aluminum is VERY HOT.
Not saying this is the best way to do it, but these folks are doing a service for the local environment and they got a beautiful piece of art for their efforts.
It’s also good for Science because we get to see what the inside of a fire ant nest look like. That’s really cool.
Thats pretty metal.
It’s literally pretty metal.
that’s the spirit

That is the best reaction to a pun I have ever seen
There’s quite a difference, isn’t there, between what was, and what should have been? There’s an awful lot of one, but there’s an infinity of the other. And infinity’s too much.
i hate it when adults assume i’m on the internet all the time by choice. if i had enough money to travel around and etc, do you think i would be withering away my youth behind a computer screen you useless paperclip.
I dont think i have ever heard the term useless paperclip used as an insult before.
clearly you never tried to write a word document in the 90s
ok so in the lyrics booklet that comes with Soul Punk, some letters are coloured white like this:
so i wrote them all down and together they read:
"Fear is killing us
But true love can survive
If we cooperate
We can beat doubt
But first rebuild trust
Happiness is still free
Though not always apparent
When its right in front of us
So keep calm
It’s gonna get better”
Vampire doctors that can smell if you have a blood disease.
Werewolf therapy animals for sick kids.
Nature sprite and nymph nurses that always make sure people have pretty flowers to brighten up their white rooms.
Fauns that go around and sing and dance for patients so that they smile.
Nice monster hospitals would be amazing
Someone write a book about this.
[Game of Thrones] shows you all the different ways you can wield power. Psychologically. Physically. Sexually… Dragons.
