Did You Know...

Postby Snarfyguy » 29 Aug 2020, 20:31

Did you know that ants will chew their way through two inches of cork just to get at some honey that's inside a jar, and that if you throw the jar in the trash the ants will then come pouring out all over the inside of the trash bag, causing you to just chuck the whole fucking thing out of the fucking house?

I just learned that.

This just might be the beginning of the ants' revenge for the horrible things I used to do to them when I was a kid.

Ants crawled into my black & decker electric screwdriver and killed it. It was totally full of them like you would imagine them on a honey jar. :) I don’t know what was edible or interesting to them but that was a surprise.

Hey kath

Nice to bump into you. So sorry for your loss (I haven't been around much since).

We're hanging in there, thanks. Hope you're keeping well.

Agreed but it might be an idea to disconnect the drill from the mains first
