I had my first bee sting this year - man, that hurts like a mother . . . the number of bees is rapidly declining - a decline that would have a devastating effect on agriculture in this country and world wide. Save the Bees!

I've been terrified of bees my whole life, their amazing savant-like learning ability only further frightens me. Death to bees!

The big thing is brain size doesn't matter.
Take Children vs Adults.
The human brain reaches maximum size ~at age 15 (1.315kg on average).
Now how many children do you know have a full time job and kids??
Case closed-children are way smarter
I'm just sayin'

More bee movie trivia...special thanks to the makers of The Transformers movie for bumble-bee's rear view mirror decoration with the word BEE-OTCH on it...my 7 year old found it last night while watching the DVD...look Dad...the "B" word...

I just discovered that you started your blog again. This is the best news EVER.

Wow...

I had just purchased this book, and thought about how much you might enjoy it.

At the same time I purchased
The Dangerous Book For Boys and
The Intellectual Devotional
they look to be in the same vein.

Sounds like bees wax to me!

While on the topic on interesting facts about bees, in recent years entire colonies of honey bees have been mysteriously disappearing. Check out Colony Collapse Disorder. This can have huge impacts and can effect the quality and price for the food we eat.

That is rather amazing. It's amazing how tiny they are in comparison to us...and how much we as a species have accomplished. Yet, these teeny creatures have a bleepin' built-in map of the earth and the sun's position at all times, so that they can locate nectar. That's freakin' amazing!
