Whenever I hear people say that classical music is boring I just want to remind them that Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture called for a cannon to be fired a total of 16 times.

Casting a fire ant colony with molten aluminum

Not saying that killing ants just because it’s cool. But hey.

I’ve seen this post and the original video before.

That ant colony belongs to an invasive species of fire ant (called Red Imported Fire Ants or RIFAs) which cause more harm to the local environment than good. Researchers are experimenting with extremely high temperatures as a means to dispose of invasive insect species and, just so you know, molten aluminum is VERY HOT.

Not saying this is the best way to do it, but these folks are doing a service for the local environment and they got a beautiful piece of art for their efforts.

It’s also good for Science because we get to see what the inside of a fire ant nest look like. That’s really cool.

Thats pretty metal.

Naw man, fuck those ants. They are evil and their bites hurt and they are RELENTLESS and kill native ants too. The researchers also look at how these fucking ants connect their bodies together to make an ant raft to survive floods which is goddamn terrifying.

If you live in those red areas, you totally know that running through sprinklers in summer is never gonna happen. One false step and the little fuckers are all over your legs biting the shit out of you. 

I don’t like fire ants. They are admirable little engineers, but I HATE THEM. they suuuuuuuck. I had them in my apartment a few times because the foundation in this place has gone to crap and they got in. I wasn’t even safe in my own apartment from being bit by these little bastards. 

They totally deserve molten aluminum death. About the only thing they are good for is eating small dead things.

You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all. I was like, “Yo, is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist?” And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.
