I know how you feel, ants. Wasps nearly killed me once.

Fell off a ladder and broke my ankle when I encountered a nest of 'em in the gutter I was working on. All I did was step back. Oh right. Mental note. Do not step back on a ladder. Bastards didn't even sting me; they just laughed at me sprawled out on the ground.

For some reason, wasps LOVE the brick around my front door. They keep trying to make a nest there.

There are few things I'm afraid of, bees are one of them.

No word on where Supernova, Alan Rails, or Crocubot were at the time?
