glad there, there, and not here. if they were I would have to move to alaska

Me alergic. and I remember when the recruter turned me down because of my alergic reaction, he was telling me about hornets or wasps, that get that size. and he told me they would just do me in if i ever got stung, so I was not allowed in.

Excellent question...there are a number of snakes and insects that have venom that is several more times potent than could ever be necessary...I know a couple of chaps who are actually doing some research on the subject.

I'm a skeptic, so I had to do a little bit of research before I could believe that. I found these two sites with more interesting information.
