    I did. But in the post you refered to them as red winged bull ants. I agree with the latin name, but the common name used causes confusion. Hence the reason why most scientists prefer the scientific name rather than common name. Anyway, splitting hairs here. Most ant species are preparing to do the same thiing come late summer :)

    MSI will be providing microcode (BIOS updates) back dated to the Z87 and perhaps earlier but certainly all boards that are LGA 1150

    Agreed. In fact most insects are fascinating once you start observing their habits and life cycles. Ants on the other hand work in a completley orderly manner. They all have a role to play and will defend it to the end. Many humans could learn a few things observing ant colony collective networking.

    Wasps, or wasp nests more specifically I'm very wary of. Severe anaphylactic reaction if stung, probably resulting in death if not treated within 15 minutes or so. Nests scare me.

    Yes, now... work that took eons can be done in a flash; We are now in the era of...More...not More's Law but more competition to crack the 50+ Quantum bit saga. Computers are at a stage where we were back in 1982 with the 386SX and Oh my goodness the 486DX of 1991. Soon we will have so............many cores and amazing threads that we will look back at CPU technology as our Grandfathers and Mothers awed at Big Radios with their massive tubes and valves.

    All of the clocks in the movie Pulp Fiction are stuck on 4:20.

    I think Swedish does not have a literal one word equivalent of "please", but they do have several different ways of expressing "please" - depending on the context. This wikihow is pretty accurate IMO :)
