The ants you see in the world are just about all females. Male ants live their lives in the colony.

Duck sex facts:

- ducks mate via gang rape, many males forcing themselves on one female
- male ducks have long corkscrew like penises
- the female can "choose" if a male will inseminate her or not. The inside of her vagina is filled with twists and turns and some are "dead ends." The female can direct the duck dicks accordingly.

So, Female Ducks can shut the whole thing down if its not a legitimate rape?

In Michigan you are not allowed to take a photograph of someone with a wooden leg.

You need a camera.

* Hyenas kill prey by disemboweling them, and eat them alive. This is actually considered more "kind" that strangling them to death, like lions do. Lions actually take more Hyena kills than vice-versa. Hyena clits are absolutely enormous (scientists initially thought the species was hermaphroditic), and females are noticeably bigger than males, and bully them mercilessly. They give birth through their super-clits, which tear open in order to do so.



Holy fuck, dude.

In the early 1990s, there was a rumor that the Ultimate Warrior had died of a heart attack explaining why he was off TV for several months. He was supposedly replaced with his twin brother. You could tell the difference due to that one part of the human body that can never be changed or altered in any way: the hair.

In truth, Warrior had been embroiled in a battle with Vince McMahon over receiving more money. He even held up the main event for the 1991 Summerslam (he and Hulk Hogan vs the Triangle of Terror) for more money. Vince acquiesced but the Warrior was sent home after the event and didn't appear on television again until March/April of 1992.

This was the start of his bad blood with the WWF, which lasted for several years, with both sides publicly sniping at the other.

In 2014 however, the Warrior and WWE (WWF's new name) mended ways and the Warrior was inducted into the Hall of Fame and appeared on WWE television for the first time in nearly twenty years.

The next day he died....of a heart attack.

Not to sound arrogant (too late) I thought this was common knowledge?

ANYWHO
there's a fungal form that lives solely in ants, it attracts them, ants eat them, fungus infects their fucking brain.
Ants become ant zombies, and towards the end of their lives (both the fungus and the ant) it makes the ant climb up to the highest spot it can in order to spread spores

This was also the inspiration for Las Plagas in Resident Evil 4, and I'm guessing as well The Last of Us, haven't played the Last of Us to see if they confirm it in game but in Resident Evil 4 one of Carlos' diaries makes a simile to this phenomenon.

and this one is more for fun:
Mars is only inhabited by robots

I only heard about e female ant thing today. I had, however, heard about that weird ass fungus some time ago. Very unsettling.

Coco Chanel, Ghandi, Charles Lindberg, George W Bush's grandfather, and WEB DuBois all had one thing in common... they were supportive of the Nazis and/or Hitler early on.  Chanel might've been a spy, in fact.

Mosquitos are attracted to potassium rich blood. If you find yourself especially appealing to them you may want to stop with all the bananas.
I don't eat bananas, but I have always attracted mosquitoes

A lot more potassium in other common foods. Plus you may just be high on the potassium naturally.

Every fourth generation of monarch butterflies lives three times as long as all the others. The monarchs migrate south over the course of three generations. Then the fourth lives three times as long and migrates back north. I may have the north south parts mixed up, but the generational lifespan difference is accurate. Strange, right?

I knew it was called the dew claw... never knew dogs at one point climbed trees. To my knowledge the shift from dog to wolf happened over a really rapid time course, such that it must be some manner of wolf that climbed the trees, no?

The old 80's show Night Court had (and might still have) the Guinness World Record for the tallest sitcom cast.  All the men were over six feet tall, then there was Richard Moll who was like 6'8.  Most of the female cast were tall for women (the lady who played Roz was 5'11).

There is a soccer ball floating in Earth's orbit.  The ball was originally on The Challenger.  When it exploded, it was one of the few things that were intact.  An astronaut took it up into space not too long ago as an homage and let it float into orbit.
