A is For Ants: A to Z Apocalypses #atozchallenge

At first apocalypse via ants may sound crazy, but if you've ever suffered a home invasion by these mo-fos, you know how ruthless they can be.

Fact: There are approximately 10,000,000,000,000,000 ants on Earth at any given time.  That's so many zeros I don't know what number that makes. (Quadrillion, I looked it up) The Ants, Bert Holldobler


How many people are on Earth? 7.125 billion

That's something like 1,403,508.772 ants per person.  They could easily swarm the ever living shit out of us!

This bug is just practice.  We're coming after you next!

Somethings else I'd like to point out: Paraponera clavata, also known as bullet ants. Why are they called bullet ants? Because their sting, which is said to be 30 times worse than a bee or wasp sting, feels like getting shot with a bullet.


It is described as causing "waves of burning, throbbing, all-consuming pain that continues unabated for up to 24 hours". -Wikipedia

An ant apocalypse doesn't seem so crazy now! Does it?!
