Amazing how many mine design principles that we've only figured out in the last 100 years go on perfectly there.
It'd be cool to somehow transport that huge thing into a museum
And it is worth pointing out that in this show they mentioned that this colony was on a rancher's grazing land and he was going to wipe it out anyway, but he called these guys in so they could study it in the process

But I kinda feel bad for the millions of ants that were wiped out so we could just dig up thier city.

this is what Sim Ant SHOULD have been

As if ants didn't scare me enough before.

Those ants are more productive than any of us will ever be. If that isn't humbling, I don't know what is.
You'd be that productive too if you were programmed to be able to do nothing but find food, carry it back to the hive, and repeat until you were killed or your body gives out.
Jesus, people, they're ants. You're all starting to sound like furries with your "boo hoo poor widdle things" anthropomorphizing.

I didn't say I felt sorry for the little fuckers--they're just ants. It's just hard to not feel a little shame when a bunch of insects can carry off a project like that and some days it's too much trouble for me to load the damn dishwasher. That's all I'm saying.

I love how even the acorn ant colony was callously destroyed. I wish David Attenborough would fill everything with cement in his shows.

I must see this.

Nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure. Or, you know, fill it with cement.

Needs a "genocide for science" tag.
|Mother Lumper - 2008-01-18 |
Boo hoo feel bad for the ants, until you realize everyone has a super colony like this in their backyard. Lurking underground, waiting for the day of uprising.

Creationists never make shows that show us cool shit like this. This is why they will lose.

I DONT BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!
LOOK AT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to say that the writing is very lyrical for a nature program...
|SecretJunk - 2008-01-18 |
need clear cement
|Ersatz - 2008-01-18 |
You load sixteen tons, whattya get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store.

I was waiting for the guy to pop the acorn colony into his mouth at the end.
|Camonk - 2008-01-19 |
Being an ant entomologist must be great. All these other biologists are worried about preserving their species and protecting nature and whatever. Ant guys are like, "Whatever fill that fucker with cement. Oh we found a colony in an acorn? Break it open with a rock and poke the queen with a stick. Hey let's poor kerosene down this ant colony and see if they have fire brigades!"

That was cool. Those are resourceful little bastards.

Five for the acorn colony, and an equivalent number of stars for the Great Wall of China anthill.
|Pie Boy - 2008-07-03 |
Anyone who one-stars this is a filthy bugger-lover.

Totally stealing that layout for my next Dwarf Fortress game.
I have traveled back in time to tell you that Minecraft will be the new hotness of late 2010/early 2011.

Evolution is awesome.

Amazing how much beauty is created in the natural world each day. Truly, nature is the the greatest artist we have ever known.
Holy christ what a fag

These stars are for the ant at 5:07. "Hey! This seems... familiar..."
|Squeamish - 2010-05-25 |
Am I the only one slightly terrified by this?
