Bees Are For The WEAK 
is this the BEES discussion thread? 
Future Bees 
Bees make up a superfamily known as the Apoidea. Cellophane bees make up the family Colletidae, mining bees make up the family Andrenidae, sweat bees make up the family Halictidae, the leafcutter and mason bees and their relatives make up the family Megachilidae, the digger bees make up the family Anthophoridae, and honey bees and their relatives make up the family Apidae.

There are about 20,000 species of bees worldwide. Some species may not yet have been discovered, and many are either not named or have not been well studied. Bees are found throughout the world except at the highest altitudes, in polar regions, and on some small oceanic islands. The greatest diversity of bee species is found in warm, arid or semiarid areas, especially in the American Southwest and Mexico. Bees range in size from tiny species only 2 mm (0.08 in) in length to rather large insects up to 4 cm (1.6 in) long. Many bees are black or gray, but others are bright yellow, red, or metallic green or blue

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee;
Whiling away all the passing hours
Pinching all the pollen from the cauliflowers.
I'd like to be a busy little bee,
Being as busy as a bee can be.
Flying around the garden brightest ever seen,
Taking back the honey to the dear old queen.

(Chorus): Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don't sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Buzz if you like, but don't sting me!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee.
Toying with the tulips, tasting every type,
Building up the honey-comb that looks like tripe.
I'd like to be a busy little bee,
Being just as busy as a bee can be,
Flying all around in the wild hedgerows,
Stinging all the cows upon the parson's nose!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee,
Visiting the picnics quite a little tease,
Raising little lumps on the maiden's knees.
I'd like to be a busy little bee
Being with the butterfly strong upon the wing.
Whooppee! O death, where is thy sting?

(Chorus): Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don't sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Buzz if you like, but don't sting me!

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A nice obedient busy busy bee,
To be a good bee one must contrive,
For bees in a beehive must behive.
But maybe I wouldn't be a bee,
Bees are allright when alive you see,
But when bees die you really should see 'em
Pinned on a card in a dirty museum.

Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but don't sting me,
Bz bz bz bz, honey bee, honey bee,
Bz if you like but if you sting me I'll wack ye
With this dirty great newspaper!

Covered In Bees! 
Beekeepers, yes ...They've gotta want to be: - I want to be a bekeeper! I wanna keep bees! Don't want them to get away, I wanna keep them! They have too much freedom ...I want bees on elastic, so when they get pulled, they come back here! My father was a beekeeper before me, his father was a beekeeper before him; I wanna walk in their footsteps ...and their footsteps were like this ...eeaarrrkk! I'm covered in bees! Aah! Covered in bees!

'Cause that's your job, isn't it? They must lose it - beekeepers must lose it occasionally. You know, you're there, you've got the netting, you've got 2.000 bees ...bzzzzz ...and essentially you're trying to steal honey:

- Bzzzzz...
- Morning, morning ...hello ...hello, knock-knock, coming in, hello ...Look! There's a Ferrari over there - can you see that Ferrari? [stealing the honey] Yes, it's very fast, isn't it? Well, good morning, thank you!

He must be walking back with all these bees around, and at some point, he must go:

- What the fuck am I doing? I'm covered in bees! Help! I'm covered in bees!

And you don't get the normal perks of a normal job, like people who work in an office; they have other people there, you can flirt, you know? You go:

- Hey! Oh, you're new here, aren't you? How are you getting on? Do you want a coffee? I was gonna go get a coffee - I can get you a coffee ...You know, I like my coffee like I like my women - in a plastic cup!

Beekeepers can't do that! 2.000 bees ...bzzzzz ...

- Hello there, you in the street! You're new, aren't you?
- Huh?
- Do you want a cup of coffee? It's no problem! Bzzzzz ...No real problem ...
- I don't want a cup of coffee from you! You're covered in bees!
- I like my women like I like my coffee ...covered in bees! Now, back off, back off ...eeaarrrkk!

Silly me... 
So, I Was Walking Down The Street 
all of a sudden, FUCK!!! BEES!!

Cold, dark and bitter 
I'm Allergic To Their Stings 
Apparently I used to swell up like a barrage balloon when stung. Last time though, it was just my foot, which turned me off sandals for a while.

But there was this time when I did a tramp in the Haurangis near Cape Palliser, where I just stormed past all these flies. At least, I thought they were flies. Turned out they were native bees, and seriously pissed off native bees as well. Apparently I was lucky not to get stung... 
I Was Snake Bit In The Foot Once 
I'll never step foot in that church again 
Nice to see a moderator, who reguarly (and indeed, very recently) rants about the appropriateness of threads for this board, himself post a retarded ot thread. 
Bees are an integral part of mapping. Only the other day, I was happily sitting in my room, quietly mapping, when a bloody great bee flew in the window, prompting me to pause my mapping activities for a moment in order to chase the aforementioned insect back out from whence it came.

After I had dealt with the mischevious creature, I sat back down to my computer only to realise I had totally forgotten what I was about to do next. Almost immediately, another idea popped into my head (and might I say, an even more exciting one), and I proceeded to resume my mappery with haste. Suffice to say, the exciting new direction that my creative path was taking was entirely the result of my recent bee encounter. So much so, in fact, that I have decided that the bee's contribution to my map is significant enough to warrant a credit in the readme file. 
Lol, Kinn, Now Who Is Being The Big Silly? 
Oh, nonentity,
Scampie posted this topic as a means of showing the need to keep topics relevant to the purpose of the func_board. 
if you're just going to be a trolling douchebag who can't stay on topic in a thread, please post elsewhere. Else I'll sting ya.

So, I Was Walking Down The Street . . . all of a sudden, FUCK!!! BEES!! . . .

. . . my mounting fear became hard to check, but I knew I had one chance. I mustered all my strength, ran down to the hardware store, got a can of that cool "Black Flag" insecticide shit with the pistol-trigger cap - ran back to the bees, and fried their asses from twelve feet (3.658 Meters) away, laughing sadistically, watching them squirm and die (and in some cases, commit aerobatic suicide!), BUT JUST WHEN I THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE . . .

[We have Mud Daubers up here - not bees, wasps I think, but nasty]. 
(to be serious for a moment, yes GrindSpire, I relieze this thread is off topic and is hypocritical for me to be posting it. But we've not had a silly thread for some time, and BEES has been a hot topic in #tf the last few days, so what the fuck.)

Oh, I Guess I Am Not A Mind Reader Afterall 
Then where are those voices in my head coming from?

Oh, bees! 
Words To Live By 
Or what? You'll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark they shoot bees at you?

My dog's name is Scampie and he loved to eat bees...

Yes... Well 
now this thread has delved into the terrifying
