Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell when next ant war vid
AdeptFrenzy Day ago
Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell You should really make a video about the impact on people by use of social media. I used to be a social head who always texted people and over the years I just kinda felt that social media was more harm to me than good mentally. So nowadays I limit the amount of usage on Instagram n shi. But yeah I thought you could perhaps make a vid about that.

What do you mean humans don’t do war anymore? Humans are still killing each other everywhere and war is always happening around the world? Do you live under a rock?

It's like Bits and Bytes formed insect bodies and evolution made the code for them so together they perform complex tasks which a single byte could never hope to understand.

I think leaf cutters could really improve their defence tactics if they held a reserve force that funnelled army ants through one purposefully open entrance. Or maybe even dedicated their whole defence force to defending the entrance. Since their soldiers are larger, this means that the Army ants can no longer use their quantity and lose in terms of quality.

It is not true that 'war is something humans decided they don't want to do anymore'. There are currently wars ongoing. And the only reason world war 3 hasn't already happened is fear of nuclear war. Quite different to just deciding we've had enough.
