I'm confident they'll eventually flush out the thief.

We had a similar occurrence a few weeks ago but with flying ants.

A cloud of flying ants that hit the south coast on Wednesday was so dense it could be seen in satellite images from space.

The swarm of insects peppered the skies in the counties of Dorset Hampshire, and West Sussex — and were captured on the Met Office's radar, shocking images show.

Ants were also spotted in Kent and East Sussex. The insects were on their so-called 'nupital flight', during which they mate — an event triggered by the current weather.

Ants swarm together to raise the odds of pairs successfully mating and to deter predators at this vulnerable stage in the life cycle of their colonies.

The link is to a Daily Mail article so be prepared for astronomical amounts of hyperbole.

(See what I did there? )

So the flying ants are looking for love in all the high places.
I thought ants had a queen who got all the action, like bees.

Sometime today, a mouse fell out of the White House ceiling into the lap of an NBC reporter.

I knew there was a rat in the Oval Office, but, I didn't know about the mice in the Press Room...

He cannot get anything right. The mafia lets it be known. That mouse must be a rat. And it must be dead. Only then is the message properly received.

A 30-year-old man was gored by a bison [in June] at a Utah state park, then brought his 22-year-old date there and she was gored too

Couldn't readily think of a thread in which to put this

Quote:
Google's paper explains how its 53-bit quantum computer took just 200 seconds to perform a calculation that would have taken the world's fastest supercomputer 10,000 years.
It's called Sycamore.

No wonder he hasn't been around much lately...

Article says same about the Wright Bros.

They did fundamental research that proved fundamental scientific theories work. One of many major steps necessary before even application research can start. Nobody is yet close to application research to make a truly functional quantum computer. But we now know this new technology is proven; has a future; will be coming.

Just one of many products based in quantum physics that, in 50 years, will become dominant in our lives. But only in nations that do what Google, et al does. And not what GM, Sears/Kmart, GE, and other 'we want to make profit' companies do.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai likened the experiment to the first flight by the Wright Brothers. "The first plane flew only for 12 seconds, and so there is no practical application of that," he said. "But it showed the possibility that a plane could fly."

The Transistor was invented by Bell Labs not IBM. Just so you know.
