Did you know that in some species of ants, the queen can live to the ripe old age of 30? Workers of those same species live about seven years. It’s good to be queen.
I enjoyed the OLLI class, The Parallel Universe of Ants, yesterday. We learned a￼￼ bit about ant anatomy and the social structures of colonies, but I’m incredibly thankful there’ll be no tests. Some of this stuff is way over my head.
It figures that in a college town that many in the class would be retired educators. The level of questions asked by my classmates was impressive. Before our next session I’m going to do some heavy duty reading.
The instructor for my class authored this book:
Pretty cool, eh?
I wrote this joke:
What do you call an ant who’s good with numbers? An accountant.
