thats life when a zombie fungal virus exists for your species
Sounds like something the Japanese would do.
But, but, how can you execute someone and they commit suicide as well???
@celtics313131, never mind, I read it wrong! The other termite will commit suicide, I’m an idiot! Goodnight everyone
@celtics313131, I’m glad you corrected yourself so I don’t have to.
@celtics313131, I mean the clintons did it all the time
@celtics313131, but why couldn’t the infected termite not commit suicide himself?
@CrazyManInaBox, I was gonna say ask the Clintons lol.
If suicide is involved at all why do they need escort/executioner termites at all? Why wouldn't the infected termite just commit suicide before entering the nest?
@StoneFarb, the fungus is a parasite that basically takes over the termite's brain so it will keep spreading the fungus to new hosts. It's a strain of the cordyceps fungus, most often recognized from The Last of Us games today. It's commonly referred to as the "zombie" fungus
See if the crew of the Nostromo did this we would’ve saved a lot of trouble
I thought the termites were nearly all female, like ants or bees
This is the plot of an awesome sci-fi story
