Note: To everyone sending me the dinosaur smut novels story I already posted it on Monday. Don't you people read?! "Not at all." I didn't think so.
These are giant hornets. They're like regular hornets, but f***ing giant. And apparently they've been swarming and killing people in central China this year in numbers previously unheard of, possibly due to a population spike as a result of climate change. If there was ever a reason to reevaluate our outlook on climate change, this is it.
Twenty-eight people have died and hundreds have been injured in a wave of attacks by giant hornets in central China, according to reports.
Victims described being chased for hundreds of metres by the creatures and stung as many as 200 times.
The hornet attacks are a recurring problem in the area from May to as late as November. According to Ankang police, 36 people died in the city and 715 were injured by the creatures between 2002 and 2005. But Zhou said the issue had been particularly severe this year, possibly because of weather changes.
Jesus, just look at those things. The stingers alone are-- "Bigger than your penis." Good one, jerk! Here I am trying to talk about real world stuff and all you can think about is my corn dog. It's a blessing and a curse. A special kind of curse when I'm out camping with the guys.
Thanks to john, who agrees Mother Nature must have been really uninspired when she stopped making new things and just started making giant versions of existing creatures.
