What Hurts More: A Bee Sting, Or the Knowledge That the Sting Caused the Bee to Die And the Bee Population to Drop Ever So Slightly Which in the Long Run Could Cause the Death of All of Humanity?

To our loyal readers, we pose a deep, scientific question. What hurts more: a bee sting, or the knowledge that the sting caused the bee to die and the bee population to drop ever so slightly which in the long run could cause the death of all of humanity?

Let’s break down the arguments. A bee sting hurts. Like hell. Not as bad as a hornet, but still. You might need to put on some ice for a little while and take it easy. Ruins your day. Some people are allergic to bee stings, which causes them to break out into hives. What came first, the bee or the hive, am I right?

The knowledge that the sting caused the bee to die and the bee population to drop ever so slightly which in the long run could cause the death of all of humanity is really just sucky. I mean, the bee chose to die, it wasn’t your fault for backing up into a beehive. Maybe it was the bee’s ultimate “screw you” to the human race. I hurt you AAAAND I die so that you will one day die too. Mmmmm, that might hurt a lot. I know I wouldn’t want that kind of knowledge.

What do you think? We’ve been scratching our heads over this all week.
