Today, I saved a honey bee from drowning in our pool. It promptly stung me and died. FML

Nice? O_o They sting you then die

He was referring to OP, not the bee...

why the hell would you save a bee?

Wow 36 it just flew right over your head -_-

80, 'cause one day when you're drowning in a pool, the bee will return the favor.

no good deed goes unpunished

Maybe OP isn't an expert in bee varieties and accidentally mis-classified her little bee buddy.

Honey bees will use their sting if provoked; they have a sting for this reason. Being manhandled would certainly count as provocation to an insect. We did the research for you on this.

you might have saved it from drowning but you can't save it after it stung you :-P

Did you rescue it with your hand? How did you possibly expect to not be stung?

16, one; A honey bee will only sting if roughly handled, an even still very rare. Two; they will also sting if the nest was attacked, that wasn't the case. Third OP; honey Bees don't die after they sting because human skin is not thick enough to dislodge it's stinger. So back to number 8's post, you are right, it probably wasn't a honey bee.

maybe it was a suicidal bee, who wanted a creative death....which you interfered in. So as a result to your interference, it was pissed, and it stung you. Managing to both get revenge, and die....?

46- That sounds terribly boring. Just saying.

48 no it's the study of insects 52 it is but won't be when I finish, because I'll be working with animals, hopefully in australia or new zealand, but I needed this degree first :/

Study insects= work with animals? Treat bug bites or something? I am concerned

52 - Pff, entomology is fascinating. Nature is awesome.

This bee was living a real life edition of Final Destination. If only she could have overcome her nature of stinging she may have survived... until death came up with something else.

1- Ya and Casey Anthony is didn't kill her child.

oops I done stung myself bye world!


does it matter what kind of bee it was?!

1- ya, and Casey Anthony didn't kill her child.

you study insects to work with animals? shouldn't you be taking some animal course then?

my minor is entomology, my major is zoology :)

5, don't put your number on fml. personally, I'd b kind of scared if someone like every1luvsboners or gayboii started texting me.

she could be using textfree on her iPhone so you can block random weirdos. just saying.

A honey bee? I had not known they stung. Shit, back to google.

180- Bumble bees do sting, I've been stung by one in the temple before.

Well they do commit suicide when they sting, i was turned it into a homicide by me before. It tried to sting me but then I caught it, got a hold of it's stinger, and pulled it out.

My boyfriend catches bees so he can put them down my shirt >.> lol I don't see how he does it. But he also can tell which sting and which don't. I don't know that, either, but luckily I haven't been stung yet.

My girlfriend puts leeches on my erection.

I think I'd get rid of that boyfriend... He doesn't sound like a great catch to me.

there's gratitude for u, I'm sorry :( f the bee and fyl
