Links: animals that are taking over the world, animals with sci-fi names and updated laws of robotics

Watch out! A flurry of links is heading your way!

First, comedy site Cracked count down, “5 Species that Seem to be Trying to Take Over the World“. The global mega-colony of Argentine ants at number 5 is my personal favorite, but those smirking dolphins are scary, too.

Second, MSNBC writes, “Science fiction’s robotics laws need reality check“. The experts are not calling for a complete revision, though, more like an update. Their amended first law states:

Their first law says that humans may not deploy robots without a work system that meets the highest legal and professional standards of safety and ethics.

Third, io9’s triviagasm section has a gallery of  “30 Real Animals with Science Fiction Names“. Agathidium vaderi is seen below next to its eponymous Star Wars character:

Darth Vader?                                                              Agathidium vaderi?

Darth Vader?..................................................Agathidium vaderi?
