Why can't we just get along?

Yahoo! News - Giant mutant ant colony found in Australia
A huge ant colony measuring 100 kilometres (62 miles) across has been found under the southern Australian city of Melbourne, scientists said. [...] "In Argentina, their native homeland, ant colonies span tens of metres, are genetically diverse and highly aggressive towards one another," Suhr said.

"So population numbers never explode and they are no threat to other plants and animals.

"When they arrived in Australia, a change in their structure occurred, changing their behaviour so that they are not aggressive towards one another. This has resulted in the colonies becoming one supercolony."

Find this mutation, apply to humans, presto! global peace. And a message to intelligent life in neighboring star systems: Watch out! Just you wait until we get our act together!

Too bad it ain't that easy.
