I can’t tell what my favorite part is, but it’s either
- scientists wasting budget and time to see if ants count their steps
- the idea to put ants on stilts
- there had to be a guy who made ant stilts and put them on the ants
- confused antsYes because understanding our ecosystem and animal behavior patterns is TOTALLY A WASTE OF TIME. just because something doesn’t have a direct obvious application doesn’t mean its not useful research. I mean, the fucking dust buster came from NASA research. Who knows what application this might or might not have, but now we know more about ants.
Hey, you know what would be a cool science? Let’s attach stilts to ants!
