Swarm

Back when I was a kid, when we weren't worrying about getting nuked by the Russians, we were spending way too much time worrying about killer bees coming up from the south. My mother always answered my questions/concerns with "It gets too cold up here for the bees." Well, we watched a Monsterquest episode last night and my mother needs to get her facts straight.

They're coming.


Advice.

I got attacked by a swarm of hornets one time. (apparently I was by their nest) Wasn't fun.

After I regained myself, I went back and made sure I killed everyone of them and torched their nest once I found it....I win!

I remember first becoming aware of the Killer Bee Thing arount 1st or 2nd grade. I remember being convinced that they would be coming ANY SECOND.

I worried about that for about a week until I forgot about it. Kids!

Thank you. Very helpful... I'm reading a book and the main character gets chased by bees near the ocean so he runs for the water but there was too many and he didn't make it. He woke up with thousands of stings all over him. It wouldn't have mattered if he made it to the water. They would have been waiting and waiting. Especially since they were quig (demon) bees.

Killer bees, nukes, global warming, 2012, seems like people can't live anymore without thinking were all doomed.
