Hot Dog on an Ant Hill....how long till it's gone?
« on: September 13, 2015, 12:56:25 PM »
There is an ant hill about 50 feet from the back door. Had a hot dog left over from the day before. I dropped the hot dog (regular sized Nathan's Famous all beef) on top of the anthill (not obstructing the hole). Within a couple minutes I bet 30 ants were crawling all over the thing.

How long till the dog is gone?

Quite possibly the best poll so far.

If it takes 1.5 hours, no one wins.

Result: 46.5 hours later still about 1.25 inches of hot dog are left. The ants seem to dislike the casing and are taking the meat in the middle first.

Those who said 8+ hours....win! Have a cookie!

I should've known Ants wouldn't like Hot Dogs, they're the ultimate communists

Cookies?  Can I have chocolate chip?

About this being the best poll ever, I don't know about that.  But definitely 10/10!!

Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

I worked at hot dog and sausage making plant one summer in college.  Hot dogs right out of the smokehouse are delicious.
