Watch How Silk Is Made, SPOILER ALERT: They Use Computers, and Worms

We humans, afraid of dying of starvation, when we can actually survive up to 11 days without food (by most estimates). Well, this does not in any way apply to these tiny creatures who, if even 45 minutes late in eating, dies - the beautiful, hard working, and ravenously hungry Silk Worm. These buggers would eat nearly every second of their 1st month of life just to weave cocoons made of silk some time before they make babies and die themselves. These silk cocoons are then boiled, releasing filaments, 6 of which are then combined into one single silk thread that the locals use to make anything from rugs, clothes, and any other importable products.
