I have just seen the largest ant hill I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s amazing to see millions upon millions of ants carpeting the forest floor, for - i judge - at least 100m around this nest in every direction. Hive species are so cool

I’ve heard other stories like this. A PR sketched out an ecosystem where they charge thousands to rich clients who want to position themselves as thought leaders. They then place a ‘think piece’ on their behalf in a mag/paper, and contract a ghost writer to put the piece together
