    I despise fire ants. I used to burn them with a magnifying glass as a kid. I also use to put lit bottle rockets and cherry bombs in their hills. :hhh:

    I don't know where they did that but the fire ants around here that didn't get fried by the aluminum would be in full attack mode. You couldn't pour that aluminum fast enough and get the hell out of there without getting about a hundred bites. Plus, all the workers that were out of the mound when you poured it would probably be hanging around, looking for vengeance when you dug it up. I bet they'd even use their little ant communication system to bring in reinforcements.

    I bet the person that poured that aluminum would end up with multiple scrotal bites. I don't even want to think about if it was a girl.
