    I made up for you.
    Got stung by more flying monsters than I can count- bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitoes, I'm a magnet for stingers.

    The worst case, I was 14, a friend and I were walking in the woods, and I stepped on some twigs and branches. I heard this subterranean buzz, and a whole nest of wasps attacked me (they don't like it when you step on their house). Got some twenty stings on the insides of my legs.
    Believe it or not, my grandmother came up with this magical potion of oatmeal, witch hazel, aloe, and mothballs for all I know. But took the sting out and the swelling went away.

    That same year, our 8th grade science teacher had a working beehive that produced a massive amount of honey. A few brave souls went out to see how these industrious creatures work.
    At one point, I took off my glove and had bees crawling all over my hand.
    Did not get stung. Bees can smell fear, and if you show fear, you're gonna get stung. One classmate wasn't so lucky.

    But bees are stoners too. Give them enough smoke and they just sit around all mellow. Put on some Grateful Dead and make a day out of it.

    Apparently. It takes a lot more for me to go all Hulk over something, lol.

    Now I'm picturing an anthramorphic bee smoking weed with some random pot head with just a cloud of smoke hovering over by.

    This sounds like some kind of Family Guy joke right there.

    Since you brought it up, here's an example of me Hulking out over something from years and years and years ago, when deviantART changed their layout without warning and I didn't like it (and this can count for pretty much anytime YouTube does the same thing):

    Of course, I'm barely active on deviantART anymore, and they've changed their layout a few more times since then, so I'm just "meh" about it all.

    I usually just favorite stuff on DA, and I'll even go as far as saying I've favorited some... Well, pornographic drawings (at least reasonable ones; don't judge me), but I have posted my fair share of drawings, including Muppet ones that I may eventually show off on here at some point.

    I haven't had much of a desire to draw lately, though. :smirk:

    Do you just draw? Or is it more than just that?

    The only reason I got involved with deviantART in the first place (and almost ten years ago, at that), was because I was part of a Chipmunks fan site that hosted fan content such as fan art, ficfics, and what have you; however, the webmistress was always too busy to maintain the site regularly, so most everyone else took to dA to share their stuff and kept urging me to do the same, which I eventually did, and . . . I actually became pretty popular in that fandom with my fan art, lol.

    That was then though. The main reason I'm not even active on dA much anymore is simply because there's hardly anyone there anymore: dA, much like YouTube, seems to be catering more to the members that put money in their pockets and such, and a lot of other people on there have pretty much just moved on to other things like tumblrs or their own art sites, or just lost interest altogether.

    I was surprised bees and wasps would have their nests on the ground. Usually they're under the eaves of roofs, in dead trees, some place where there is some semblance of cover.

    And abandoned houses! Seen a number of videos where vacant buildings become home to swarms of stingers.

    I'm all for bees. They serve a necessary function for pollinating plants, growing flowers and vegetables, and serve a vital use in nature.
    If someone can tell me what good wasps and hornets do, I'm curious to know. Convince me they're not pests.

    Nothing. Even Billy the Exterminator said they're nothing but little bullies.

    Whoops. Do you do more than just drawing?

    Nah, I just sit around like a bum eating chips and going on rule 34.

    So you just draw then?

    Mikaela, I think he was being sarcastic.
    Yeah, pretty much. :p

    I thought so.:p

    Anyway here's another one:

    Am I the only who only likes bananas when they are straight-up green (underripe)?

    So serious question.

    Am I the only one who would go to a furry covention... At least once?

    Well, as with other cons, I'd consider it if someone was going to be there who I would like to meet . . . like, say if Jim Martin and Gary Gnu happened to be there like they evidently were at this Pittburgh furry convention:

    Furries look like fun. When my wife and I were in Disney World on our honeymoon in 2001, I was convinced I wanted to move to Orlando, put on a costume, walk around and get mobbed by fans clamoring for selfies. Sounded like a great gig.
    Didn't exactly work out that way.
    A few years later, I did get to dress up as Blue (was Blue's Clues part of anyone's childhood?) That was fun. For an afternoon.
    Trouble is, those costumes get unbearably hot, and you don't always have the best vision. So if you're the least bit claustrophobic, you'll freak.
    There was a member on here once named Harleena who was totally into cosplay. People dressing up to emulate their favorite characters- cartoon, anime, etc. Even having contests to see who was more authentic.
    Trouble comes from people believing they really were that character.
    Surrendering their own identity to take on somebody else's. It might be okay for a day, but not for a lifetime.

    To be honest,

    I'd probably dress up as Nick from Zootopia if I were to go to one. Or Sonic.
