Flies and men are at war. Bloodsucking carriers of deadly diseases, flies have killed more than the wars of men over centuries. In the Middle Age, an ecclesiastic court could judge and excommunicate the flies.
Thanks to an international survey we can now discover their countless talents. Police Flies: the police crime squad uses flies as auxiliaries to date the death of victims, or to get information in drug and paedophilia cases. Patented flies: scientists have studied the fly genome more extensively than any other. Neurobiologists copy the vision of flies in order to invent rocket guidance systems. Armies of patented mutant hatch every jour in laboratories. Eating Flies: flies contain 50% more protein than a hamburger, are five to six times more digestible and taste delicious.
