This is not a joke thread. I recently considered the movies "Ants," and "A Bug's Life," and came away from them with startling conclusions.
The earliest dominant life on this planet was the dinosaurs, right? But insects existed back then, too.
A mass extinction occured and the new dominant life on this planet became mammals, of which we belong to that group. Insects are still around however.
Both the dinosaurs and humans are temperature sensitive. But insects are not as prone to be.
Furthermore, if there is some sort of natural disaster, a meteor collision with the earth, even an alien invasion and the enslavement or destruction of mankind, do you honestly think things will change in an ant colony or a bee hive?
The truth is that we don't know what those little guys are really up to. We could be the next dinosaurs and they're just waiting for our extinction. When we die, they're going to eat us of course!
But I've started to notice insects more often now - they're spying on us everywhere, patiently prepared for when they are to take over.
There's probably a spider in the corner somewhere along your walls right now. Silverfish and earwigs go on patrol. Cockroaches are much more rarer (one would hope) but they are the heavy artillery for the invasion and they'll appear on patrol at one point or another.
I know that insects provide a valuable staffing role in our ecosystem's personnel roster, but mind you: they are patiently waiting to enact a coup de tat and neither reptile nor mammal life will be able to deny them.
Furthermore, if advanced life on other planets could have followed our own evolutionary model, it would be wise to consider that the alien life we might encounter would be smaller than us, more adaptable, and insectoid!
This means that alien insects could invade our planet and completely alter our eco-systems yet survive on earth in complete comfort themselves.
Insects might be a superior form of life. You're striking a blow for all of us primatives when you step on a bug today!
