On Ant Guns: Maybe One Day

Am I crazy? No. Did I waste your time? Maybe. Is Lew Patton still irrationally angry about this morning’s Leading Off? No question. How long can I keep up this question thing? Indefinitely. How long will I? Probably almost done. Did I almost PhotoShop this myself? Yes. Will I still do it anyway? Perhaps. Anyway.

    I want a silk-screened t-shirt of that.

    A quick Google search informs me that an ant can carry .2 grams. Another google search tells me that a loaded 9mm would weigh about 1,162 grams and a single bullet would weigh about 8 grams. If you scale all that down to what an ant could carry the bullet fired from an ant gun would weigh .0014 grams. A single grain of sugar weighs .025 grams — or 18x more than the hypothetical ant bullet.

    I respect your police work, Wes.

    To recap: ant assassin? Probably ok. Ant army? Could be in some trouble.

    Still say I’m printing t-shirts that say “I’m on an auntie gun crusade.”
