Hornets are capable of melting your skin (see Japan's giant hornet)
Thanks, I really didn't want to know that.
But I think the giant hornets haven't made it to me country yet, so I think I'm somewhat safe for now^^
they live in a lot of places, not just Japan, they're actually a threat to US honeybees (from what I remember)
That so sad, bees are already an endangered species. (Not that I like them or think they look asthetically pleasing, they are insects after all, but from what I remember they are important for the environment.)
I've asked Google, apparently the Giant Hornets are slowly invading Europe too, but they haven't reached Germany for now.
But I guess I shouldn't go for a vacation in some countrys.
not without a flamethrower anyway :)
Oh yeah! Hornets, wasps, yellow-jackets, scorpions, venomous spiders.
Not bees though. I love bees! Plus, bees can only sting you once since the barb on their stinger pulls it out and kills em. Wasps: nice smooth stinger. They can repeatedly poke you till they get bored and move on.
That sounds indeed like an adequate Equipment. ^^
So all venomous animals that can sting or bite?
Bee stingers are such a weird concept, you have weapon, but you will die if you use it. Makes me wonder what the evolutionäre sense behind that is.
I can actually answer that for you! It makes evolutionary sense because they can’t reproduce anyway, so it doesn’t matter to future generations if the die. Only the queen can lay eggs, and the males never leave the hive.
If you get stung, it’s by a non-reproductive female. (In fact, the stinger is what would have been the reproductive, egg-laying part). Furthermore, it makes even more evolutionary sense because the death of the bee means it stung something that is now far less likely to endanger the queen. As long as the queen keeps laying, that’s all that matters.
the more you know
I would have never expected to learn something about bees in a game forum, but that's really interesting, I had no idea that the stinger would have been part of the reproductive system.
Bees are absolutely fascinating! Waggle dance, royal jelly, fanning the hive, capping the honey, on and on. Seriously, look it up, there’s so much to know about them. Loads of websites dedicated to the info. Did you know you could be a beekeeper, legally, in most towns and cities? Small hive on your apartment balcony or roof. Yup! Free honey AND good for the environment!

I don't have a problem with the ocean itself I just get scared being deep underwater surrounded by pitch black darkness
It does sound like a cool idea to do something like that for the Environment, but I'm not sure if that's allowed in my country (and my general phobia for all insects would be a problem too).
So I had an experience back in first grade with a yellow jacket that clung to my ear and stung me several times. I've been freaked out of bees and wasps ever since. I actually have a diagnosed phobia of them. Also spiders...ew.
Yeah oceans for me aswell
happened to me once as well, only it was on my back, I remain unconvinced that wasps aren't specifically designed to cause you as much pain as they feel like
Lol, I gotcha. But...still. That experience traumatized me.
SPIDERS. Their faces are creepy and seeing a picture of a spider face will quite literally makes me throw my phone across the room.
I’m not afraid of the ocean. I love going to the beach but things like shipwrecks and seeing things that shouldn’t be underneath the surface is very spooky. Seeing the wreck of the Titanic or a sunken airplane is very ominous. They’re basically graveyards underwater.
I also have a fear of being in small places and being trapped like a cave or an elevator.
What was it about that movie? that made everyone scared of the darkness again.
