From something said in another forum;http://beemaster.com/beebbs/viewtopic.php?t=4616
I have to wonder where this kind of info comes from and how sure are "they"? this is what was posted;
"in the Bee Culture article last year they said that one's chances of dying from a bee sting (due to allergic reaction) was about 1 in 555,555,556."
First off is this a world wide number or just here in the USA, or some other country? Because if it is only the USA, there are not that many people in this country in the first place, and I'd be willing to bet that not even half of the people in this country have ever been stung.
Another one is the stats on DNA. You hear that the chances of any one haveing this particular match of DNA combination is somewhere in the trillions. There ain't that many people in the world, but someone had it, so why not some other person?
OK one more.... The number of people whos lives would have been saved if they had only used their seatbelts..... How do you know those people would have lived? Remember people do die even with seatbelts and air bags. So you don't know! And if everybody everywhere wore their seatbelts tomorrow, there would be people dying in car crashes. Would we then declair seatbelts unsafe?
Once upon a time it was said that there were no two snowflakes alike. I always thought that was a stupid idea. Do you know how many snow flakes fall in one year? Or even one day during a big snowstorm?
Yes I did hear somewhere a long time back that this has been disproven. Two identical snowflakes were found. But I guess it wasn't earth shattering news because people still believe the old myth.
Ok I'll shut up.
And wow was this the 22,222 post? Should I win a prize?
