Yanked from Nekokage:

"A small but highly efficient killing machine—a hornet two inches long and with a wingspan up to three inches—lurks in the mountains of Japan. The voracious predator has a quarter-inch stinger that pumps out a dose of venom with an enzyme so strong it can dissolve human tissue.
Bees, other hornet species, and larger insects such as praying mantises are no match for the giant hornets, which often stalk their prey in relentless armies. Just one of these hornets can kill 40 European honeybees a minute; a handful of the creatures can slaughter 30,000 European honeybees within hours, leaving a trail of severed insect heads and limbs.
People are not the Japanese giant hornet's usual prey, but those who have felt its sting describe the pain as excruciating. Masato Ono, an entomologist at Tamagawa University, near Tokyo, said it's "like a hot nail through my leg."
Someone who is stung by the hornet and doesn't receive proper treatment soon thereafter can die from the venom, which is powerful enough to disintegrate human flesh. About 40 people die each year after being stung by giant hornets, mainly as a result of an allergic reaction to the venom."

Oh my God! *HUGS* I'm allergic too, but mine seems to be more about not being able to breathe then huge terrifying lumps from the sting. I get swollen and red and like a mini version of that at the site, but deeefinitely not that bad. I just can't breathe which does cause it's own problems.

I'm sorry this scared you!! It scared me too. Neeever going to Japan ever!

The only reason I'd ever go to Vegas would be to see that show. The album is amazing. An incredible remix.

Oh, I think honeycombs are kind of neat, but between the two of us we have quite the bee phobia, between me hating the bees, and you hating thier combs.
