Texas fire-ants, insect vultures
I was greeted at my door step with this sight today. It looks like a lizard or a snake (I didn’t get too close) died and the ants were hungry. Usually, all the ants dine on are earth-worms. They must be picky eaters because they never finish the worms off like they are doing to this poor creature. I wish the ants would devour those earth-worms instead of leaving the shriveled up, mummified carcasses on my driveway.
Ants are close to the top of the insect food chain. They are up there with spiders and wasps. But they have no defense against a broom!

Fuddruckers is another example of a company enabling people to eat too much food. But first let me preface this commentary by saying that, so far, it is the only good hamburger place that I have found where they will cook the burgers medium-rare for you. However, the problems can outweigh the benefits. First, they sell burgers up to one pound in size. Then they use a large, buttered bun. Then you may order extra toppings for the hamburger. Next, you may order some sides such as french fries or onion rings. Of course, you need a soda to go with that. Then, place free toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, salsa, mayonnaise). Don’t forget the cheese sauce for your fries!
And if that was not enough, there is a dessert area where you can order milk shakes, cookies, brownies, pies, or ice cream. Of course, they make it convenient by creating meal specials (hamburger, fries, dessert) to further incent you. If only people could show more restraint in eating.
Don’t forget that this is a costly experience. Is 10 to 15 dollars too much to pay for a 2000 calorie meal?
