investigation into the philosophical
basis of physics, asking whether

the theoretical entities posited by
quantum electrodynamics were real or not

when my pen disappeared

    seminal contribution of my

    cousin Bertrand Antkins to
    solid-state thermodynamics,

    or the protein folding genius of
    the Hon. Reverant Hermann Whitaker

    ants in the pants you appear

  2. At the risk of sounding prejudiced, I have to point out that ants and the hymenoptera in general, have made stanty contributions to the world of science to date. Indeed, for many human youngsters with pants, they offer only a risk factor for the development of ADHD. Perhaps they should stick to mold farming…
