WASPS CAN RECOGNISE YOU!?!?!?

SWEET JESUS THEN THEY CAN SEEK REVENGE!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
User avatar #86 to #77 - konradkurze (12/09/2013) [-]
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.

id say its an individual thing and the wasp who hates your friend just released the warning pheromone and the others followed to the place the first one said was trouble

I wish that was its name. Instead they gave it that "HD 106906 b" crap

this is news? my stem cells were converting into lung tissue since before i was born.
#89 - pedobearraper (12/09/2013) [-]
why did you have to show me this op? I pissed off so many wasps and bees when I was ten.

A lot of these things tend to be stretched in terms of how accurate they are.
User avatar #8 - Taliesin (12/09/2013) [-]
Does NO ONE ELSE find it utterly terrifying that paper wasps and honeybees can recognize your face? That scares me ******** , that means there are hundreds of evil flying death needles waiting for me to show my face again.
User avatar #11 to #8 - flemmi (12/09/2013) [-]
but they only can sting you once.
User avatar #13 to #11 - Animefreake (12/09/2013) [-]
Honeybees can sting once, but wasps can do it unlimited.

I'm confused as to how no one had ever noticed a second set of vocal chords in koalas? Like what the **** ? Have they never been dissected before or did some idiot just move the first set out of the way and was like "yo **** jerry, theres another one"?
User avatar #87 to #68 - konradkurze (12/09/2013) [-]
makes you think

where were they sticking the science equipment to make the koala scream in such a way to make them curious about vocal chrods

I love it when people provide the source.

I love Argonians! I actually got butthurt when the Oblivion strategy guide said that Argonians were the most useless race in the game because their racial traits are nothing special.

What a bunch of ******* ass holes.
User avatar #72 - leonhardt (12/09/2013) [-]
Another reason to be ******* terrified of wasps.

Thanks, science!

You ******* asshole.

Scientists didn't invent it they just discovered it ******** .
User avatar #165 to #123 - leonhardt (12/10/2013) [-]
I like the part where I never said that.
User avatar #166 to #165 - sardinez (12/10/2013) [-]
You blame science as if it never existed beforehand. It's always been there now you're just aware.
User avatar #167 to #166 - leonhardt (12/10/2013) [-]
It was also sarcasm, but thanks for being both stupid and unnecessarily hostile.
User avatar #168 to #167 - sardinez (12/11/2013) [-]
Well then my apologies sir.
