Look Out Indy 500- Here Comes The ‘Moth Team’

Ok, it was far from an Indy race car, and hardly qualifies as a ‘car’ at all, but the fact is, 14 different male moths showed that they had no problem operating a mechanical vehicle efficiency and accurately, especially when they were using it to pick up chicks.

Ok, so they weren’t actually chasing lady moths, just the pheromone scent of lady moths, but the similarity to young male driving behavior simply cannot be overlooked. Except in these case there were no squealing tires, speeding or drinking and driving. Just male moths, operating a vehicle to arrive quickly at a point where they think a lady moth will be.

Could driver-less cars soon be replaced by professional moths who drove us where we need to go? The future is wide open…
