That's a <i>mean</i> cup o' joe!

Last week I saw a documentary on Africanized ("killer") bees, the raving psychopaths of the insect kingdom. Apparently, not only will they chase you for up to a half mile, but if you dive underwater to escape, they'll wait at the surface until you come up for air.

If you're into coffee, it turns out killer bees are good for something. But I don't drink coffee these days, so I'll continue to think of them as pure evil.

  1. They don't say much to make it sound like Killer Bees are any better than regular honeybees, though. They do say that the same regions that have killer bees have larger coffee crops, but that's hardly conclusive.
