"Kinda Like Revenge of the Ants"

Las Vegas hotel 'death ray' leaves guests with severe burns Mail Online Interesting article about the new "Vdara" Hotel in Las Vegas that apparently produces roving "death rays" due to the shape of the windows and the strong Sun. In the pool area there is a band of extreme Sun rays that follows the Sun throughout the day. There is no confirmation that this building was designed by a group of super intelligent ant architects out to exact revenge on all the humans, particularly pre-teen boys who used to use a magnifying glass to fry ants on a hot sunny Summer day. It is a fact though that there are many ants in Las Vegas as well as quite a bit of the rest of the land on earth and ants are known to construct elaborate tunnels. Compared with "ant farms" and other ant colonies; designing a hotel shouldn't be that big of a deal. Plus, compared with humans ants for their size have "super human strength" as they can lift objects many times their size and weight.

Somewhere out there maybe colonies of ants are rejoicing as the "ants strike back".
