Bees…Good or Evil?

Like all of you, I fear bees. The sting is like having a lit cigarette ground into you and you don’t have the knowledge that your captors are attempting to pry from your stubborn mind.

And yet honey goes well with chamomile tea.

The ultimate dichotomy! Choose!!!

Strangely enough, I get no pain from stings. I do not fear bees, bees fear me.

I've been stung a few times and it wasn't a big deal. I'll go with cute and good.

Got stung in the foot once when I had 2 min to get to work and parked 2 blocks away. That was a painful walk.

Honey is the food of the gods though, so bees get a big from me.

when i was 12 years old, I was at a party. Volleyball goes over a fence, and I jump over to grab it. A bee comes at me, and I swat at it...next thing you know a swarm of bees are after me. I was stung over 150 times, while running for my life...i Ran so long and fast that I finally passed out. Four high school kids picked me up and carried me (dropped me as they were stung) about 50 yards to a pond.

They gave me and adrenaline shot, and sent me home for bedrest for a week. A producer from the television show Rescue 911 called to interview me, as it was in the local papers.

Evil.

I don't know about cute, but they are definitely good. Been stung many times as a kid, but not as an adult. Now I try to attract as many as I can come spring gardening time.

That's a big fuckin' bug.

I hate bees, yet love honey. When the killer bees move up into southern Kansas, I'm moving north. Gonna stay a year or two ahead of those bastards.

Bee's are cool, they make honey for me. Everything else that stings is evil.
