If one fly can ruin a large set of 596,229 dominoes set up by 22 people, then surely it could have stopped Thanos during the Infinity War. Instead of Spiderman, The Wasp and the Antman, the Avengers should get a Flylady on their side. Imagine how she will bzzzz the mind out of the enemy.

A German domino entertainment group attempted to break their own 2013 Guinness World Record and recruited 22 people to fit 596,229 mini dominoes with tweezers. But a fly landed on the one of the tiny tiles and triggered a chain reaction before they had completed the set-up.

The tiles were no bigger than a fingernail and took two weeks to set up. However, they managed to break four other world records, including the longest domino chain reaction, which took 15 minutes to complete.

Who would have imagines that a fly could wreak such havoc. But flies have superpowers to distort any mind, frustrate even Zen masters and could have woken up Kumbhakaran, if Ravana had tried them to wake up his sleeping giant brother.

Not only flies, but other birds and animals too manage to cause some wreckage without realising it. How about the puppies who try to squeeze in to the cradle with babies. Or the cats that lick your ice cream when you are not watching. Or the parrots that bite innocent fingers trying to pet them.

It is a worthy topic of research to find if animals too have malafide intentions. Why else would monkeys snatch snacks from unguarded hands. Why would elephants spray harmless travellers with jets of water? And what about those crazy looks that cats give to photobomb pictures.

In fact, even research has proven that animals have a sense of humour. Koko, a gorilla in Woodside, Calif., who has learned more than 2,000 words and 1,000 American Sign Language signs, has been known to play with different meanings of the same word. She also once tied her trainer’s shoelaces together and signed, “chase.”

After all, animals too need to have fun. And this fly must surely have been a Jew, trying to sabotage the domino record in Germany.
