comment Why do moths not die when they fly into a window?
If an ant was the size of a human, it would die of hypoxia. Arthropod respiratory systems can't scale that big with the Earth's current oxygen levels.

comment How could 45 milligrams of a substance equal 4,500 micrograms?
@AliceD, It's only trivial if you have a certain amount of experience. With vitamins and "nutraceuticals", I've seen errors caused by conflating and mislabeling between "mg", "mcg", and "Mg" (where "Mg" was perversely meant to be convey micrograms!) . This is so serious that the FDA has repeatedly warned about it

comment Is thinking with language efficient?
Yes. And your "Milk tongue" greatly influences your cognitive style. See Dennett, et al.

comment Why do smaller mammals move intermittently?
Motion not only greatly increases your chances of being seen by something that wants to eat you (or something you want to eat), but it also increases your chances of being heard (or vibrationally detected), and/or smelled.

Not just mammals. Insects and reptiles do this too.

Thanks! Looks like a reputable counter-example. This answer will do unless an authoritative analysis or statistical result is posted. (Previous comments are now obsolete.)
