NPR just had a poisoning expert on who said that in 2012, there were 640 attacks by killer bees. He is in Arizona and he did not say whether he refers only to his own state or to the whole country.

But either way, you know, dang.

Saw an article the other day that reminded me of this thread. "Crazy ants" originated in South America, are invading Texas, are so successful that they are driving out even fire ants, and have a bizarre instinctive drive to swarm all over electric wiring until the machinery shorts electrocuting them in the process. They're like ecological kamikazes.

Swarm Remake: "We've been fighting a losing battle against the insects for fifteen years, but I never thought I'd see the final face-off in my lifetime. And I never dreamed, that it would turn out to be the [s]bees[/s] ants. They've always been our friend."

I'm surprised some wing-nut hasn't decided this would be a great idea to build an electrified fence between us and Mexico. You know, for the ANTS.

:shock: This is a new one on me. I mean, I knew about fire ants (and killer bees), but not about this.

Dr. Andrews: Billions of dollars have been spent to make these nuclear plants safe. Fail-safe! The odds against anything going wrong are astronomical, Doctor!
Dr. Hubbard: I appreciate that, Doctor. But let me ask you. In all your fail-safe techniques, is there a provision for an attack by killer ANTS?

And everyone's aware of the recent Jellyfish invasions, of course. They killed the power in a major city in the Phillippines by piling into the cooling tubes under an electrical station, and then they cleaned out all the livestock in an (Irish?) Salmon farm.

I'm not sure. It may have been pushed off the front pages by the rescue of the Cleveland hostages.

I was spending all my free time worrying about the invasion of hippie, nudist, witches and ACLU lawyers. Now this. I... I just can't.

Rest up and recoup yourself, Vapes. There's more to come.

Didn't the original version of The Incredible Shrinking Man begin kind of like this?

Next thing you know, you're dealing with situations like this.

A bestselling astronomer was the guest this morning on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me: The NPR News Quiz." As the guest was an expert on stars, they asked him all these obscure questions about Axl Rose. When asked what his final score was, Karl Castle said tactfully, "Well, he was consistent..." Yeah, he answered every question wrong.

Then one of the panel volunteered his own question, saying that he's an amateur student of astronomy and he just wondered how hard it was for the guest and his colleagues to blow up the Death Star. The astronomer didn't miss a beat, saying that all you had to do was turn the Hubble Telescope around backwards and use it to focus the sun's rays on the offending satellite, and blam.

I just thought it was funny, especially considering that he knew NOTHING about Axl Rose.
