When the right answer isn't quite right.
« on: February 09, 2010, 04:03:41 PM »
Hi All,

I have been taking some of the online beekeeping courses for the U of F Advanced beekeeping course. One of the correct answers wasn't quite correct. Unless of course where are going to start keeping bees in a whole new place.

It seems to me that the last one is the only correct one, whether the highlight is accidental or purposeful.

You are correct that the last one is the correct answer  the joke is that I really wanted the answer with the spelling error to be the right one.

  Forage fidelity is the key-generalist is not correct
 although the real reason they are such good pollinators is that bees generate electrical charge of static electricity and
the pollen clings to them even if the are foraging for nectar they are passing pollen from flower to flower RDY-B

The last answer in the test is the correct one. The point was the juvenile humor with the misspelling of the word colony. Which is highlighted. The missing of one letter I felt made it funny in a childish Beavis & Butthead kind of way. This was not an in depth post on what is the right answer it is what I wanted to be the right answer because of the spelling error. :)
