Dont tell the Americans, their military will use it on the "terrorists"

Usually people don't do this unless the ants migrated to a different location.

thats sad
#340 to #26 - gorbax (12/12/2013) [-]
ah, I guess that makes sense!
User avatar #8 to #6 - goobyman (12/11/2013) [-]
all ants on this planet combined weight more than all the humans combined
i don't think it would matter even if hundreds of thousands of people were doing this.
#9 to #8 - gorbax (12/11/2013) [-]
I don't think you understand.
They poured molten metal on top of ants. I don't think there's anyone happier than the guy the moment he tipped over that container
User avatar #10 to #9 - goobyman (12/11/2013) [-]
what about someone who does it multiple times a day?
#11 to #10 - gorbax (12/11/2013) [-]
I think it probably starts to bore, after a while.

that's what I thought, but here I am, cleaning up the carcass of my tenth hooker, and I'm bored enough to check my FJ updates
#131 to #13 - bann (12/12/2013) [-]
I hope to good you're actually a cleaner of sorts because that'd be really cool
#341 to #131 - gorbax (12/12/2013) [-]
I shouldn't complain, the molten metal is hot enough to take care of most of the gorey insidey bits
#349 to #341 - bann (12/12/2013) [-]
Brutal and classy
#219 to #12 - anon (12/12/2013) [-]
Depending on the size, it can take anywhere from 2-10 hours to dig up, if you are not trying to bend or break any pieces off
#259 to #8 - anon (12/12/2013) [-]
does that mean killing people isnt a problen too?

Something like ten thousand or so per colony, if I remember high school biology right.

I'm pretty sure they're just sleeping, no need to panic.



I think their actually dead.

Yes, as the metal cools the ants sculpt it into the finished product. This process is cheaper than using 3rd world country sweatshops.

This probably only took a couple hours yo.
User avatar #147 to #146 - schneidend (12/12/2013) [-]
A couple hours can occur within a single day, believe it or not.

Also, if you watch the video, the sun is up when he pours the metal but when he digs it up it is clearly night.
#155 to #147 - thecrazyonedf (12/12/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure they all died within a second of touching molten metal...
User avatar #157 to #155 - schneidend (12/12/2013) [-]
What part of amounts of time less than a day being able to occur in a single day is difficult to grasp?
#160 to #157 - thecrazyonedf (12/12/2013) [-]
You made it seem like you're saying it took all day for them to die. Though, I agree with your day-logic argument.
User avatar #149 to #147 - volksworgen (12/12/2013) [-]
I was under the impression that it was dark the entire time.
#154 to #149 - schneidend (12/12/2013) [-]
Watching it again, you might be right. Still, it was within a single day. **** you, I ain't gotta explain **** !

that costs like 30 dollars to do and she sells those for $200+ each
not bad
User avatar #71 to #57 - clickythepirate (12/12/2013) [-]
He's actually selling them for 700$
User avatar #72 to #71 - waitingformydeath (12/12/2013) [-]
there are simpler models for around 200, hence the "+"
User avatar #44 - cfeuer (12/11/2013) [-]
this is actually a common practice. its not done for art or to kill off the ants.

its a scientific procedure of sorts to understand the colony that used to live there, and see how its tunneling system and storage chambers etc were constructed.

it is done to abandoned ant homes.

its art some people do this to sell

I think the cast represents the oppression of the working class. It really speaks to my unemployed soul, and tells me that it's a metaphor for how we work ourselves to death.
User avatar #196 to #194 - itemexchange (12/12/2013) [-]
mhmm
i mean i get what most art is "trying" to do
but its a little overkill theres a sculpture that is a block of cheese....with a few strands of hair stapled to the top....thats it
User avatar #31 - kanatana ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
Damn. If I had thought of doing this for my high school science fair, I would have beaten that ant farm kid.

The irony would have been delicious.
