    I for one welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted MacRumors member, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

    Earth metres or Space metres?

    I ask because, when you get a good look at Earth metres from space, they're actually reeeeally, reeeally tiny!

    On the news today:

    Residents in Westhausen were astonished to be confronted by a 200ft long insectoid today asking "Wo ist Godzilla? Kennen sie Mothra?"
