If you look real close you can see the little ant faces cast in the metal, screaming.

You could watch their souls as they boiled away at about :45.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

If you're implying Alderaan was populated entirely by fire ants, then the Death Star did the galaxy a favor.

Binro the Heretic
Kill them. Kill them all In the most agonizing way possible.

Fuck the fire ants.

Cue some dramatic music while a few of the lucky survivor fire ants scurry about on the surface of their ant mound wondering what the hell just happened.

I once pissed on a massive ant hill back in my early teens, the population was so large and the ants so angry you could actually hear them after the deluge had ceased.

A 'genocide for science' tag will link to this large scale version

The fire gods are pleased with ye, and now pour forth their mana. Let this fire ant volcano be the new Zion for my... hey, ants.... aaaaants... you even paying attention?

This thing is presently on eBay with 75 bids and hovering over 3,000 dollars.

00 now.

SolRo
and need to find out the legalities of doing this on public land.

I'm not going to look at the comments and just assume that people are bitching about being cruel to animals or something.

An amazing sculpture is made by pouring molten aluminum into a fire ant colony. The resulting cast is huge, weighing 17.9 lbs. and reaching a depth of 18 inches.

See some detailed pictures of the resulting display at http://www.anthillart.com/castings/043/

I disabled comments because I'm sick of your bickering. Also, I couldn't get YouTube to stop sending me an email every time someone posted "What if I poured aluminum in your house." for the 100th time.

EvilHomer
It's a valid question. WHY WON'T HE ANSWER IT? WHAT IS HE HIDING?

Potter
they are god-damned fire ants, how'd those people like to have fire ants poured in their house? Cause that's pretty much what's going on in the south. This man is some sort of saint, making art out of a war we need to WIN!

I am SO doing this the first chance I get.

EvilHomer
I would love to have fire ants poured in my house. I would teach them to be vegans, and then we'd all do ashtanga yoga together.

RocketBlender
I usually just pour a big pot of boiling water down there. Gets the job done, and is fun to watch, especially if you got bit recently.

Seriously, fuck fire ants. Anyone who bitches about mistreating them has never had to live around them.

Lift with your knees, genocider.

My one complaint is apparently it's being displayed upside-down.
Spike Jonez
Duh, that's what makes it art.

It's just one result of the hateful little bastards spreading across most of the country.

SteamPoweredKleenex
Imagine how much more exterminators would make if they did this with every service call and gave you the results to display as a warning to other ants.
SolRo
I actually did some research into how one could quickly melt that amount of aluminum, and the equipment costs are huge.

they'd also have to add on the substantial cost of a large portable generator because house AC alone wouldn't cut it.

Most likely the truck carrying/towing these items would be the cheapest part.

Aluminum is cheap though. about for how much this guy used. Even cheaper if unrefined scrap.

Oscar Wildcat
That is a pretty big melt, you could certainly start with less and have something interesting. Easier to dig out, too.

Aluminum is easy to melt and cast; use gas rather than electric, forced air burners are cheap to make or buy. You'll feel like Hank Hill when you get your Pro-payne! All the stuff you need shouldn't be more than 1K USD, likely a lot less if you're handy.

I have no fireants here, but there's been a lot of mole activity...
