More ant facts

I seem to remember those ant fun facts coming from the printed side of a disposable Dixie drinking cup at the Bachrach for Congress headquarters where the young Krafy and I volunteered. But I could be mistaken.

In the spirit of ‘ants have psychiatrists’, here are other spurious ant fun facts that sound plausible but are made-up:

  1. Ants cannot move backwards.
  2. In order to perform certain tasks, one strong ant will throw a smaller ant, called a ‘jumper ant’, into the air.
  3. If you put all the ants in the world together end-to-end, they would reach the moon and back some arbitrary amount of times.
