Humans as Ants

Hey you! Get back to work!
--Modern Times
(1936)

They're not creatures you can fight--

they're an elemental--an 'act of God!'

Ten miles long, two miles wide--ants, nothing but ants!

And every single one of them a fiend from hell;

before you can spit three times

they'll eat a full-grown buffalo to the bones

--Leiningen Versus the Ants
(1938)

A fascinating little time-lapse video of life at a 24-hour Walmart.
Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times" has arrived.

Found via GlobeSt.Com's blog "Counter Culture":

This is what happens at a 24-hour Walmart. It's happening right now. And it will never stop. Things are surprisingly busy at Walmart around 2:30 in the morning. Think of this as an ode to the engine of consumerism. (from Bernstein & Andriulli, created for Fortune magazine.)
