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.

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.

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

note to self: live in a dry environment.

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.

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

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

By which of course, I mean - DIBS!
