I received over 200 stings when dropping a brood box once - I was in shorts and tee-shirt and they got me EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE they could. I keep an anaphaxis kit handy all the time and luckily (although I had to did it out of my trunk where a friend couldn't find it) I was able to get a shot in me about 10 miutes after the stings.
I did feel the symptoms of anaphalaxis, but luckily I was doing bee-sting therapy during those days, so I had a good tolerance to stings. I would NOT want to try for any toxic levels, but of course the answer COULD be ONE STING if the wrong guy got stung - but 800 sure sounds tough to handle. Not really sure what the record might be.
I know our local CHIEF of POLICE very well and he said that SEATBELTS are "PRIMARILLY" designed to KEEP you in your seat BEHIND the wheel during a crash, so that you can continue to drive with some degree of safety to help reduce an even WORSE accident from occuring. He pointed out, getting dislodged from the driver seat in an accident is the major cause of a multi-victim accident where fatalities are involved.
I was in a severe accident involving JUST my car, follows is a link showing the damage the car took - which doesn't look so bad, but I can not even imagine WHAT a major collision involving multiple cars does to the human body. I do know that the young passenger in the car with me would have been through the window and I would have had the steering wheel THROUGH my chest if we weren't wearing seatbelts.
If THAT car had airbags, I think we BOTH would have been much better off - I had tremendous chest and rib pains from the belt catching me as my car plowed into a tree going from 30mph to 0mph in ZERO seconds. That was a serious reality check.
