The 'murder hornet'... nope nope nope



With queens that can grow to 2 inches long, Asian giant hornets can use mandibles shaped like spiked shark fins to wipe out a honeybee hive in a matter of hours, decapitating the bees and flying away with the thoraxes to feed their young. For larger targets, the hornet’s potent venom and stinger — long enough to puncture a beekeeping suit — make for an excruciating combination that victims have likened to hot metal driving into their skin.

For an article with “tracking” as the first word of the title, there isn’t a lot of that going on. I scanned the whole thing quickly and found Washington State, British Columbia and Canada.

Speaking of killer, I have American Psycho in 4K, maybe I'll have to watch that tonight. I've probably only seen it once and it was back when it first came out so I don't remember much other than liking it.
I had takeout from Dorsia tonight. I didn’t even need a reservation, they know me.
