    The Leslie Ash effect.

    Wasps have the biggest size to fear caused ratio of any animal in an enclosed space with people. Just watch everyone move when a wasp flies in the window!

    I could have given Leslie ash a run for her money!!

    Wasps just seem so psychotic!

    The thing is, unless you've got that thing where you go into a coma when you get stung, its not actually that bad getting stung by a wasp, yet we're scared shitless by them.
    Yeah i know, i got stung by one of the buggers once. When i was defenseless and couldnt do anything about it - I was holding a brick for my dad to put under the trailers tent when he said "go" and it was down hill....when one of the *******s came and landed on my arm. I couldnt do anything cos if i let go of the brick the tent wuda rolled down the hill. So i just sat there in sheer panic, and it stung me and then flew off. It didnt even have a reason to get me!!!

    Saw a documentary once about some ants that killed a few people. They were about 1.5inches long and could carry loads - they preyed on and ate birds (when the bird landed 100s of the would swarm up it's legs and before it had a chance to fly away they'd crawled all over it and bitten it so much that it couldn't get away :eek: . They were a right pest to the locals because they kept attacking the farm animals too and in the past 50 years they'd even killed 2 human people!!!!! They crawled on them when they were asleep and went into the persons nose, mouth and ears and by the morning the person was half eaten. Eeeeeew!! is all I can say.

    Yeah, I hate ants too. And woodlice.
