Reason why I somewhat agree with this comment   
1. All these facts come from a single site:  www.iflscience.com   
-the "ifl" in iflscience stands for "I ******* love" which lacks professionalism and makes me doubt the credibility of the site   
-the articles from iflscience are less than a page long with about a 4th to a 3rd of the content referencing other articles from the sight.    
-the articles are "dumbed down" into terms a 8th grader could easily follow   
-2/10 would not use as a reference in an essay.   
   
2. Like xecpertx said this is funnyjunk, not factjunk   
-although i believe the last line of his comment was unnecessary, he has a point   
-this post basically amounts to taking eight if the article on the homepage of www.iflscience.com/ then cropping the picture they have for it and placing it above the title.

wasps have pretty good memories

apparently bees remember directions by simply centering on their nest and going back the way they came....however wasps remember the area by environment like we do

fear the wasps,, they'll remember which house is yours

My friends were in this shed blazing it, when these wasps come inside through an opening in the roof. On of my friends said he was going to kill it and I told him not to because more would come. He killed two of them. The other one escaped when it was on the window and my friend kicked out the window.

The following day I head up into the shed while waiting for them and there where a single wasp is just chilling on the ceiling. Just sitting there ******* staring at me. I just calmly open a window and sit down because **** wasps this is my territory and I'm going to blaze it fat. then my friend who killed the wasps came in. The wasp didn't save any time, it ******* darted outside. So we closed the windows and started smoking up. within 30 seconds the window was swarmed by like 10-15 wasps.

We ended up smoking in my car.

Doesn't at all surprise me that they can recognize individual faces. I'm curious if their recognition is colony wide or singular insect style. If it's hive mind we have some serious research ahead of us.

What school do you go to? "Degrees R US"?
Steps to be able to create new organs means that in time we will have ability to build new lungs, hearts, livers etc. from tissue of the sick person, meaning no more waiting for someone to die, no more tissue rejection.
Even a small step in that direction is monumental. especially for a complex tissue like lung.
