I wish you could just be my husband again, and put the insect aside.

The ants travel in swarms and are attracted to ELECTRICITY and can cause chaos by munching their way through wires and cables, starting fires in the process.

but at least they don't drink & they don't smoke, so that's nice.

The invasive American squirrels did amazingly well in Britain, so there's that.

I was more interested in all the articles where people are having sex in public places.  The banner had 3 or 4 articles linked in a row.  "on a public fountain", "in between parked cars" and the last I remembered was "in a car park".

Here's her quote about that movie (thanks to IMDB):

"I didn't think much of Them! when I read the script. I just knew that [my character] was a scientist, and I was hoping that somewhere along the line there would be some romance or love interest. But [director] Gordon Douglas didn't want to refer to any kind of romance whatsoever. It was totally devoid of any interplay with anybody. The ants were supposed to be the star."

Thus, I believe the movie poster is just a tad misleading.  Another fun fact -- she'll be celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary in another two years.

What the fark is it with ants and electrical equipment? That doesn't seem like a very useful evolutionary adaptation.

Did I miss it somehow, or did they never share with the reader how big these ants are?

Kill them all so all you have left is dead ants, dead ants, dead ants dead ants dead ants dead ants.

it's also misleading. Even during the peak of the famine, Ireland was producing far more food than it would have needed to stave off famine. The problem was that all the non-potato foodstuffs were owned by English landlords for export.

The blight didnt kill a million Irish. Depraved indifference did.

I sincerely doubt those actions were indifferent, I bet the decisions were actively hostile.

It would be awesome to have a japanese hornets vs asian ants death match!

Have about 25 hornets etc and maybe 1000 ants, put them in a giant clear container and enjoy!

What the hell kind of job is that?

Dear Hornets,
    I would advise you to not nest too close to humans because even though you may hurt them, they will kill you.
Sincerely, your local Wildlife and Countryside Adviser

Oh! according the the BBC's "The World" they are super ants because of the size of their Colonies, enormous underground connected collonies, not because of their individual size.

Micro-ionization causing reactions with their scent producing and reading equipment, basically a barking dog wagging its own tail. Probably pretty easily negotiated around if we come up with a better tasting insulator, but as it is at least they're reacting to inanimate property and not viciously attacking people due to the sweet smell of sweat to an invertebrate's chemical sensors.

It's owner is Richard "Dirty" Desmond. He's made his money from soft-porn and garbage tabloids.

That sort of stuff is the bread-and-butter of the Star's target demographic.
