    How scientific of an experiment could it have been when the "scientists" didnt even have the actual insect being used correct?! :confused:

    More likely the it was "Journalists" who didn't know. What we are reading is a story where the journalist did his research by reading another new story. I seriously doubt some guy who writes for the Internet bothered to hire Russian translator and make the 2:00 am phone call to Moscow to ask the scientist.

    When it's stomping Tokyo into piles of rubble, then we'll be sorry.

    Question: How did it survive without food?

    Don't most things normally die fairly quickly without food?
