Hi,

Man is merely emulating the subterranean termites

...and the Common Stalk Borer

plus gazillions of other burrowing animals.

I still want to know how bees manage to take flight when their design is said to be so aerodynamically unwieldy as to preclude flight.

Regards,
Coral

Thanks for drawing attention to Vanishing Point. It's a fascinating project, and I look forward to reading your take on it sometime soon.

Trying to skate through 3-6 inches of water is just about the last thing on my underground agenda. The number of times I've been in bone dry pipe could probably be counted on one hand.
