Imperial, California - Strange thoughts can infiltrate your brain when you are isolated as most of the nation is during the current COVID pandemic, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. For example, some people - more than you might possibly imagine - let their minds wonder and imagine they are members of an ant colony. 

Far-fetched, you might say. But the fact is that there is a group on Facebook whose members -- a massive 1.8 million of them, and counting -- actually do engage in role play as members of an ant colony. They diligently act out chores that serve the colony’s queen. As one aficionado of the game put it: "I think people are searching for something to do right now.” Ya think?
