Ant mega-colony takes over world

I didn't even have to quirk up the title, just went with the BBC's choice, straight up.

I'm not alone in being terrified by this, right?

Awesome!

Impresses me once again with how little we actually understand about nature and her subtle ways.

Only one thing ya needs to understand: They're evil. And they're out to get you.

The colony may be the largest of its type ever known for any insect species, and could rival humans in the scale of its world domination.
Okay. Everybody take one ant and squeeze. That'll solve this issue!
We must do this, before they figure out how to kill a human by blocking our airways or something. It's us or them, people!!

Gotta love the good 'ol BBC, always providing plenty of quirky, drabble-y news stories.

Still, we should be glad that they isn't a worldwide mega colony of these (yet).

Coolio! Ants will someday take over just like the Borg.

As far as Hoppy goes, I love how the news reporters made a big deal about a cat that acts like a cat. And the pansy grown man that was "forced to the ground" by a 19 year old cat? He needs to grow a couple, what a disgrace to humanity.
