Thread: Humans vs. Ants

  1. #1

    Default Humans vs. Ants

    Every species of ant on earth becomes as large as a Guinea Pig. Speed and strength are scaled to their new mass.

    Assume they can still dig and climb as good as normal.

    They decide human kind is prey.
    Earth is given 1 hour notice.

    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    With that kind of speed and strength, only an hour to prepare and the sheer numbers of ants there are, we don't have a chance.

    Well, the solid areas of the earth are instantly covered in a teeming carpet of pretty big ants...we'd need a lot, lot more than one hour prep to avert the antocolypse.

    At least they're not man-sized, like that one thread where we would have ended up basically drowned under double-digit number stories of suffocating giant ants.

    ...people underestimate how many ants there are, and the fact that they are pretty much everywhere. Basically, we're hosed.

    That's about ten thousand trillion kilograms of ant. Edit: MY BRAIN DID A STUPID HERE SORRY. It's still ten thousand trillion kilograms of ant though.

    *cough* that only really knocks like one zero off the total mass of ants you're making.

    Basically, one must not screw around with Ants. It's a bad plan.

    Don't let it get to you. I've ruined lots of earths. There's infinite quintillions more along the quantum spectrum.

    You say "significant problem", I hear "massive XP and payoff for The MunchKING".

    I got spells of mass-destruction and enough Ethers to keep me going ALL night long. Lets see how many I can blaze through.
    The MunchKING is Back! And he is AWSOME!

    You make it to the next Munch-level, but everyone else is dead and eaten and the world is wrecked.

    What now?

    It'll probably involve more speaking in the third person :P
