I learned something in high school

I remember a discussion of the cube/square rule in high school geometry. Volume increases by the cube of the length while area increases by the square. The teacher went into a brief explanation of what effect this would have on size of living things, giant ants in particular. Here’s a very detailed explanation of the effect with some more interesting physics thrown in just for fun. Enjoy.
