A friend knowing that I used to keep honey bees and hope to again next spring sent me a link to some remarkable facts about bees.
One that really struck me as funny was this statement.
"While Bees normally fly in a 3 mile radius of the hive, they can find their way back to the hive from up to 8 miles away. Which makes them smarter than the average human with a dead smartphone"

That's hilarious... I run a repair business, I'm not sure how some people get home because they sure can't give directions to where they live.

Maybe bees will be the supreme ruler after the first apocolypse instead of monkeys! :smilewink:

Monkeys throw their fecal matter at you when they get mad. Bees just store it in their combs.

Technically thats no true. They are very efficent house keepers and the waste matter is piled outside the hive.
Honey is really Bee Spit. Eating it is more like Bovine species chewing their cud. Tasy stuff in my opinion.
