I am an avid TedTalks watcher. Good presentation of the reasons for bee loses. I really liked the 3faceted analogy she gives.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

With all the years of growing tomatoes I never knew that about their pollination.
