Local news story here in Minnesota, major car accident breaks open a trailer full of bees, releasing some 4 million bees into the surrounding area. There were fatalities, unfortunately, but the idea of all those bees swarming and attacking everything in the accident aftermath is scary as hell.

MILLIONS of bees? In a truck?

Lazy b*stards don't want to fly anymore. That's what's wrong with this country!

Come on now. That's mass transit, negligible carbon footprint. Imagine if they'd all taken seperate cars.

...Strawman raises an interesting thought. Does this qualify one to use the carpool lane? It IS after all a heavy passenger load.

It does qualify for one thing - me posting the oft viewed (but never viewed enough) 'best scenes from The (Nic Cage version) Wicker Man'

Oops, sorry about the lack of link. I think I have a very focused mental disorder which has the lone effect of causing me to never ever remember to include links or attachments in the original message.

And I'm not real active over here yet, though I've been listening to Drabblecast pretty much around the clock. I think it may be affecting my state of mind. My psychiatrist doesn't think so, but I think I need a second opinion. Giant squid aren't known for their pyschiatric prowess, after all.

No worries, I think this is a re-post anyways, am I right? Thought I remember seeing this in Drabblenews already. Still worth it, because GOBS is Stalin's Wicker Man vid hilarious.
Nobody with a soul can refrain from laughing when the bear costume decks that chick.

I don't think I've heard it on the podcast yet, and my memories still pretty fresh from loading 160-some episodes into my brain over the last couple months. I've still got 2 episodes I haven't listened to yet, so it's possible that it happened to be in one of those.

It's possible that it was already mentioned on the forum here, since I haven't explored much. :)
