Oh. My. God.

This is how the zombie apocalypse will start.

Wow. That article was fascinating. I wouldn't have ever thought something like that could happen. I found the ant turning into berry-like things part very interesting. Nature is a very tricky and manipulative thing.

That is ten tons of cool. Thank you for sharing.

I already have ant issues!! Why must you do this to me?! And I'm about to go to bed. Which means, I will have dreams of zombie ants coming after me.

I need to go watch a Disney movie now.

the good news is, the fungus can only grow in certain humid temperatures.

for the time, suzie...we're safe.

note to self: live in a dry environment.

Scary! (but kind of cool) Definitely zombie apocalypse possibilities.

So not to freak you out more or anything, but it's known that humans are infected with similar organisms (sometimes the same ones). There's some evidence of subtle behavioral differences in the infected humans, but we don't understand it fully yet.

Fascinatingly freaky!

Drat! These scientists have discovered my plan to RULE THE WORLD! (Stomps off angrily to finish the chocolate and sulk.)

Holy jeebus, that's creepy. But in an oddly wonderful way.

Kalen O'Donnell said...

And thus were a dozen new manuscripts about zombie ants born...

By which of course, I mean - DIBS!

That is freaky, I read about it a bit back. I could only imagine the nightmares to come.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
