Ok have I let the tension build? Because thatís totally what I was doing waiting that long...had nothing to do with laziness or allergies making me want to sleep till the next ice age. Not. At. All.

So, question? What is the fastest  living thing on Earth relative to itís size? For example, some of you might be thinking of the Cheetah. Yes very fast but not even close. Others might think, this is easy, the peregrine falcon. Well, while a peregrine falcon can dive at the equivalent of a human running at 380 mph (170 m/s) it is actually not the fastest.

Some of you are getting tricky right now and thinking...clearly itís...the tiger beetle! A beetle that can run at the equivalent of roughly 480 mph were it the same size as a human. Thatís 215 m/s for the civilized among us.

And yet...you are incorrect. Because the mighty fungus wins again.

The spores of Pilobolus Crystallinus accelerate at 20,000 Gís. Which for itís size makes it much faster than these other speed demons. Of course it doesnít go all that far but damnit...if you are a gnat and you accidentally fly too close, itís going to kill you dead pardner!

Ok fine...Ill shut up hereís a video.† Grin

And though I have no reference to offer there is much evidence of  fungal spores in the high atmosphere...... As well as fastest could it be spores are also the most travelled organics , could float in the jet stream for years 🤔
