2623 : From Lucy Ellmann's Man or Mango

Loved this first chapter from the book (Man or Mango?). Totally sets the tone. Phenomenal !!

3rd Jan 1876 -- I immersed an ant in water for half an hour; and when was then to all appearance drowned, I put her on a strip of paper leading from one of my nests to some food. The strip was half an inch wide, and one of my marked ants belonging to the same nest was passing continually to and fro over it to some food. The immersed ant lay there for an hour before she recovered herself; and during time the marked ant passed by eighteen times without taking the slightest notice of her.
