An insect works against the surface tension, but never quite escapes. Below, sunlight only penetrates a few hundred feet deep, but oceans can extend as far as 7 miles below the surface. I bought a venus fly trap today. It makes for an ugly plant, but it's fun. But my apartment is devoid of insects--maybe it's the season. Someone left a taco on the floor by the entranceway to my apartments though, and sure enough there was a trail of ants. So I killed a few hours, trying to position them in the trap. Not something I'd do regularly.
