The enhanced noise of the ants was sickening.
Cool thing though, even though I would not like to encounter the thing whilst swimming.

And Praying Mantis said unto Noah #72,543,873, "Gather your 129,883,221 sons, and make an Ark, for a flood is coming, and it will be an Enormous flood that covereth over 3 feet wide."

"And you shall make the Ark 60 beesdicks wide, and 26 beesdicks wide, and 16 beesdicks high, and you shall make it out of Gopherwood"

And Noah #72,543,873 said "Where the f*ck am I gonna get Gopherwood, that`s indigenous to the Eastern Mediterranean, not frikkin` Amazonia! What sorta god doesn`t know his own geography!?"

And Praying Mantis said "Ah, frekkin drown then you little pis*ant"

If only humans could do this.

On board the sinking Titanic, 1912:
Woman: "Oh no, we`re all out of life-boats!"
Scared youth: "We`re all going to DIE!"
Naturalist: "Not if we use a trick I learnt from the ants! Quick, everyone! Everyone get into a raft position!"

And they all survived to live another day. Granted, a few were picked off by sharks, but in general it was happy ending.

reasons they don`t rule the world in the video... a) boat does not protect from small fish.. b)human technological advancement at 1:35 ... much faster, stronger... i`m a jerk lol

How do these guys not rule the world? I don`t get it, they basically have a perfect Communistic pseudo-utopia. Perhaps they are a few steps ahead of us evolutionally.
