I’m not quite sure I have any phobias, but during one of my many travels through the internets, I came across this picture.


This picture, for whatever reason, just really creeped me the heck out. Look at it: it’s a humungous bee. It probably, like, just FINISHED EATING THAT GUY’S FACE.

So I inquired and apparently this isn’t a photoshop, or a model, or a toy. It is real and is known as the Asian Giant Hornet, and the idea that these exist in the world just sort of gives me the heebie-jeebies. However, I’m intrigued by all things creepy so I looked a little further and found this youtube from National Geographic.

The following is a graphic, true life documentary involving decapitated bee heads and honey bee genocide. View at your own risk.
