Welfare Drones are a subspecies of human that lives in Section 8/Project Housing.They are expected to get by on whatever their government gives them on the 3rd of each month,they are allowed to steal,sell dope and live as animals any way they choose and,in return,every two years they are expected to get on a bus to the local polls and vote a straight democratic ticket.
The story of the ants is inspiring,but I was pointing out that other groups can do pretty much the same thing with less intelligence

We could learn a lot from the ant.

Any evidence of any civilization basing its societal structure on an animal/insect observations?

That would be cool.

Incredible. As a child I used to love ants - I played with ant farms, read books about them and studied ant nests in my back garden. Somewhere deep inside my 9 year old self is overjoyed at this spectacular discovery.

Ants are great, their societies are mind baffling not only because the "infrastucture" BUT by the fact that an ant hill works like a giant brain.
Bees are also awesome, maybe even more awesome than ants

Yeah, this is very interesting and reveals the group-hive-intelligence and nature's complexity at work. But when I watched the vid a couple of days ago I couldn't help but feel sorry for the hundreds of thousands (millions?) of ants these guys killed in their quest for knowledge. Like a giant magnifying glass burning them up, only this one made of cement. So here is one poster passing along a RIP to the ants who died in the name of "cool vid!" and groundbreaking (literally) zoological and scientific knowlege.

Thanks! This makes the video more interesting to me. But why would the ants move? When they had such an amazing city (nation?), I would think that twentith or hundreth generations down-line would be living in the mound. But, yes, thanks for the info.

Fascinating yes...

But given what was uncovered, and the complexity of it, and the size of it - did we witness a genocide as they were pouring the cement into the structure?

Complex structures require complex intelligence.

Would have thought a mod would have bothered to read the thread. As many have stated, the queen had died and the workers already moved on when this was done. There were very few ants remaining when they flushed it with cement. So no, there was no genocide.

I loled when they started pouring the cement into the holes. They were like "F the ants" lol.

then when there's a tiny ant walking on the cement formation of one of their tunnel he's all like "wtf happened to our awesome city O_o"

Interesting video though ! Thanks for sharing !

Flagged !
