Now, now.  Before we get carried away....
What signs and wonders in heaven and earth took place at YOUR birth? 
World peace came (6 months) after I was born.  ie. end of WWII.

Maybe should be another thread.  ie. This day, (or year) in history... (of your birth.)

Couldn't find any, but I did see this:

Monster soldier ants with huge heads and jaws have been created by activating ancient genes that trigger their development.
Scientists believe the "supersoldier" ants may be a genetic throwback to an ancestor that lived millions of years ago.

Supersoldier ants can occur naturally in the wild, but only rarely.

In the deserts of the US and Mexico, their job is to protect the colony from raids by invading army ants.

The supersoldiers use their enormous heads to block the nest entrance and attack any ants that get too close.

However, the Canadian scientists showed that ordinary ants of the species, Pheidole morrisi, contain all the genetic material needed to turn them into supersoldiers.

By dabbing their larvae with a special hormone, they were able to induce the
development of supersoldiers instead of normal worker and soldier ants, according to research reported in the journal Science.

McGill University's Dr Rajendhran Rajakumar and his colleagues wrote: "We uncovered an ancestral development potential to produce a novel supersoldier subcaste that has been retained throughout a hyper-diverse ant genus that evolved 35 to 60 million years ago."

The results suggest that holding on to ancestral development toolkits may play an important role in evolving new physical traits, the researchers said.




I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords
