Okay, this has nothing to do with ants but I read Temple Grandin's book Animals in Translation a few months ago and was blown away by it. Temple Grandin is an author and animal science expert who is also autistic and her book describes the relationship she sees between how animals think and react to the world as similar to how people with autism think and react to the world. Absolutely fascinating reading. Today I found out (via BoingBoing) that the full length BBC documentary about her is available free on Google video. Go watch it.
