'Art': Pouring Molten Aluminum Into An Underground Wasp's Nest To Produce A Casting Of Its Shape

October 18, 2018

This is a video of Belgian Youtuber PressTube pouring molten aluminum into an underground wasp's nest to create a relatively unimpressive 24-pound casting of its shape (previously: a guy who did the same thing with ant hills and made a lot of ants dead and people angry in the process). I like how he stresses multiple times that these are wasps he's killing and not bees, and that you shouldn't kill bees. Who are you, God? And, if so, what's the ruling on molten aluminuming an enemy's house? "All's fair in love and war." Awesome, no clue what that means but I've already started melting beer cans.

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to THT, who agrees there have got to be more hobbies out there.

    I'm pretty sure wasps are protected in Belgium as well. Way to go, guy. Killing animals is the best you can do to get youtube-famous?

    Fun time-killer: I hovered my little consumer-grade $100 quad rotor next to a softball-sized hornets nest in the eave of my garage. The hornets started attacking my little drone. It was like they were flying into a food processor.

    It looks like an enlarged version of the thing Shrek pulled out of his ear in the first film.

    Anything that kills yellow jackets is art - though this does look as hideous as I imagined it would. Not nearly as cool as the ant sculptures.

    When I was in high school I was playing paintball at a friend's house. We had weekend matches there all the time. I was walking through some thick underbrush and trying to go around a downed tree. Suddenly a yellow-jacket is sitting on my hand. I shoo it off. Then ten yellow jackets are swarming me. Then who knows. I was out of there. Started running and those nasty fuckers started stinging.

    I've never had bigger welts from a paintball match than the stings of god damned ground bees trying to fuck my shit.

    My tongue swelled up a little and I had a very hard and painful feeling in my gut. It all went away after a long nap though.

    That is a terrifying story. And right in time for Halloween too. Gosh I really hate yellow jackets but now I think even more than usual. They are just assholes.

    I am making $46000 per month by freelancing from comfort of my home and you can also do the same. In office job you dont have that freedom that you really deserve, therefore company job really sucks. On the other hand in Internet income, you will have the freedom to enjoy your time with your family any time you wish and go on family holiday together with them any month you choose. This is what I do> https://sowsesit.tumblr.com

    Janet - you're a filthy liar.

    This is a lovely sculpture of death. Take care now. Bye bye then.

    Social ground wasps (e.g., Vesapula sp., or yellow jackets) do not engender much sympathy, but this is a stupid waste. That aluminum could have been used to create cans for any number of delicious Belgian beers, and those wasps are no longer able to eat vasts numbers of flies, mosquitoes, and other disease vectors. Also, the "result" is not attractive even by modern art standards.

    Happy Thursday?
