I saw this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGJ2jMZ-gaI
And thought cool!!! So I checked out his website:http://anthillart.com/
Interesting... he currently has a 20.8 pound sculpture up on ebay. At 80 cents a pound that comes to $16.64 worth of raw materials. So what do these sell for...http://www.ebay.com/itm/251400985690
Picks jaw up off floor!!!
There are times I really feel like an idiot. I got a Ph.D. and work my @$$ off to make a living and it looks like I could make one of these a month and do just fine. When I lived in Texas I had fire ants everywhere. And I paid far more then $16.64 while there on ant killer. Looks like I should have simply been buying aluminum. Here in Arizona I don't have any fire ants... never thought I'd miss them. But I do now... oh boy do I miss them.
Seriously... I want to make one of these. It looks fun. Hmmm... I did inherit 80 acres of wooded hunting land in northern Michigan from my father. I used to go there once a year as a child but I get there much less often now but it is covered with many of these.
Now I just need a dump truck full of molten aluminum and I think I know how to make my first million.
