    I have no idea but it's really weird. It's the same here, the ant nests are spewing fliers. All the non-flying ants are going mental too.

    Saw a few of the buggers out last Thursday. What do I find on venturing out today? Still more of the fuckers. I don't think we get flying ant day any more - they're making it flying ant week, the workshy cunts.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I approve of the casual manner with which you slipped the fact you have a swimming pool into the conversation ;)

    Going mental makes it sound like they are having it large.

    Ant Christmas and new years rave all rolled into one.

    Just saw loads while meeting the wife for lunch, and I observed, "Must be flying ant day!" and decided to check and see if the EG thread had been suitably updated when I got home.

    :D

    ANT UPDATE - I went back outside to the ant nest in the pavement, not an ant to be seen anywhere!

    Seeing as it's ant day, I'll repost this amazing video of a plaster cast (well, concrete) of an ant colony which I posted here a couple of years ago. It's incredible!

    Metro assumes readers are thick as shit and can't find an applicable pic combo

    The day charity died - NEVER FORGET

    Holy shit, the caption under the picture (of a normal ant) "Flying ants are just like this one, but with wings"!

    Journalism is dead.

    Ok it's swarming with the little buggers here in Leicester - I tried to stamp on as many as I could on my walk home but dammit they are everywhere :(

    Bump

    It was yesterday, here anyway. Billions of the fuckers. Still many out today too, but yesterday was ridiculous
  • Deleted user 28 June 2011 13:16:37
    Oh god yeah, I meant to bump this yesterday myself. Went for a walk down the shops and there were thousands of the fuckers crawling over the pavements (but didn't yet seem to be flying about).
