Ant Porn

This is going to be random, but I need positivity right now. I need to write something I can read later so I will focus on ants.

I love ants. 

The infatuation actually began with termites on that same trip in South Africa I mentioned once earlier. Have you seen a termite hill in Africa?

Frank Llyod Wright would be impressed right?  Maybe this is where his true inspiration came from. 

Termites amazed me. I know we were looking at elephants, and even lions, but this took my breath away. How is that possible? How can such small creatures build cathedral-like dwellings?

Here’s another:

Crazy right?

And they are as hard as rocks. You can climb them. Stand on them. They are taller than you! They are made with only sand dirt, etc, but they create their own mortar. Their own saliva is their secret ingredient. 

And these hills are just the beginning, the real society, civilization, is underground and they run for miles. WHAT?! CRAZY!

So when I’m sad, I watch my ant porn. This is my obsession.

Welcome to my creepy world.

I’ll start you off with soft porn. Here is an introduction to ant hills. Start here. You can fast forward etc. but don’t miss this factoid 10 tons of cement. 10 TONS. That is what it took. How insane is that?

So why am I obsessed with ants? 

I’m not just amazed by their architecture plans. I like how they work. They work as a team. They work as one. They work on their instinct and they only work for a greater good.

If you haven’t gotten yourself an anthill. Go and get one. NOW. Watch it. Show your kids it. They will dazzle you with their intellect. They will create tunnels at crazy speeds, they will create highways, homes, food storage, and even a cemetery. Yes, the ants bury their dead. 

Be sure to point out how they can only accomplish this by working together. Alone they are an “ant.” Stoppable by just your finger. You crush them just by walking on grass. But together…HOLY SMOKES.

Together they are BIG. They can build things bigger than not just your finger, but your whole body. They make modern human architects look uninspired and lazy! 

Up for more? This is for the real hardcore fans, but I share with you for me later.

This is HARDCORE ant porn. 

I know you are busy so I will give you the minimum you need to watch to have your mind blown.

Start at 6:30 (timestamp) and don’t need to go farther than 10:00. He tends to go on. Us ant people are talkers.

You will need to know the following (to get up to ant speed).

Prior to this episode where the fire ants are introduced to the “Fire palace,” the ants created a nation made of different pods. However, no pod worked independently, they lived still as a unit. They lived in pods out of the lack of space. They adapted.

This video is one of my favorites because this is the first time the ants have been given this much soil to work with. This is a thriller. Action packed.

Did you love it?! How incredible is that! The entire colony moved in. Not just the “queen” and her people, but everyone. They grow and move as one. They unite. They make room for everyone. They don’t just build one big queen palace. No! Everyone comes along. No ant or any embryo is left behind.

We can learn a lot from ants. They seem to really have it going on.

And now I have another reason to love them. They are like me. They live underground.
