        Being that the mass weight of ants on the planet is more than the mass weight of humans, I often think that if an alien race came to our planet, which creature they would relate to and decide what the rightful inhabitant. Humans are so destructive and unfriendly to each other and create wars destroying the environment around them. Ants work together to create massive colonies and they are all in tune with each other. I believe the aliens would exterminate us humans and give their ancient technological secrets to the ants.

                                Queen weaver ants can be neon green, yellow, brown, red and blue and some times mixed colors.

                                            am i the only one thinking he is saying craziest a wee bit too much and trying to build not needed drama to what essentially was a natural measure? i find this very pragmatic and not crazy at all. but hey i am only aquarium keepeer, but have had enough bitey pets to know it is not crazy but necessary.... or am i just easy pissed over simplisticy ?

                                            and what a boring life if it truly is the craziest thing youve done ^^' i thought the craziest thing was moving from canada to the phillipines XD that is more crazy than keeping insects imo.
