For the really adventurous - try some of these...

Neal was leaning against a pole in New Orleans while we waited for a streetcar when something bit him. He pulled his arms from around his back and they were COVERED in red ants. They'd bit him a good 6 or 7 times, the little buggers. He managed to wipe them off and I, refusing to touch the things, kicked them off the back of his pants - right when some guy in a truck turned the corner and said, in N'awlins drawl - "Hey, lady - don't do that!"

Ah, the little red bastards, I remember them... One of the biogrids we set up in Zambia was in a little patch of rainforest and in there were those vicious little red ants. If you stayed in the wrong place for too long (like more than 1/2 minute or so) they'd be all over you. One of the guys got bitten in the family jewels...

Also I've seen a couple of mandabili (spelling?) ant tribes - big huge things, they usually pop one in ones and twos scouting ahead and then this millions of ants suddenly appear all in a neat row. It's very impressive and you better get out of their way.

Go on, admit it, the ants were just an excuse.

Nah, T wouldn't do that to Neal. I've seen them together when we met up in Dublin and I almost had to make an appointment with a dentist after that...

Ew! Luckily there are no red ants in Ireland - only bugs that can survive 364 days of rain a year.
