Soon, the Palins won't be the only fruits being fertilized in Alaska.

A new SyFy movie based upon it?

First there was the cinematic masterpiece, ICE SPIDERS, now prepare for ICE BEES!

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say as soon as they perfect it someone will go and mate it with Killer Bees, thus finally giving Killer Bees the full range of the world.

Great... Africanized Snow Bees. Fark.

Killer Aficanized Freeze Proof bees means humanity will have no choice but to form an alliance with earth's most fiendishly diabolical inhabitants:

The Cats.

Can you change the caption to 'BEE-LEAVE' ?

Tks.

Interesting. We certainly had our share of various stinging insects growing up. (mostly yellowjackets, bumblebees, and honeybees, well horseflies, deerflies, etc too but nevermind). Never was aware that the honeybees did not survive winter. I'm oddly shocked to hear this.
 
2012-08-12 01:23:38 PM
Ugh bad brain day. Horseflies and deerflies are biting insects so plz ignore.

Those Alaskanized chiller bees are nothing to laugh at. They can turn even a grown husky into mush.

Maybe Alaska is simply the wrong place to be raising bees? Anyone think of that?

Not really. By most accounts, it's a profitable industry and adds pollinating insects into the environment. Just that a hardier honey bee would be quite helpful.

Line two should have read: "What could possilbee go wrong?"

Dogs with frost-hardy bees in their mouths?

And when the dogs bark they shoot frost-hardy bees at you?

St_Francis_P: Soon, the Palins won't be the only fruits being fertilized in Alaska.


FUN FACT: 'Bristol' is slang for 'tits.'

Sarah Palin named her daughter 'tits.' (Daughter then had an illegitimate child before she was even 'legal.')

The slang comes from (Cockney) Rhyming Slang; shortened from Bristol Cities. ( = 'titties') (very interesting read explaining the origination of rhyming slang; stay uneducated, i don't care)

It;s pretty sad when a popular show like 'The Big Bang Theory' loses a cast member to something like this.

Age of consent is 16 in Alaska. It's low in most of the "values voters" states.

If they were smart, they'd genetically modify the bees to be gay so that they'd all die of AIDS by the end of the breeding season.
 
2012-08-12 02:40:01 PM
I propose the state gov hire lots of old women to knit tiny coats and sweaters and mittens for the bees. Maybe use some nice red ermine for the Queen!
 
2012-08-12 02:51:19 PM
They're going about this wrong. I visited Alaska several years back. The proper genetic engineering approach is to adapt those half-pound mosquitoes they have up there to stop sucking all the blood out of the locals and (s)tart pollinating and making honey instead. Send the bees back to Rio and ask Brazil to try that crossbreeding thing again. Don't tell them to change the ladies' swimsuits, though. No problem at all with those.

They have to import every year. Weigh that against having to import against a world-wide killer bee strain.
 
2012-08-12 03:00:49 PM
Here's a novel concept. Why don't they just not take all of their honey at the end of the season. Then the bees wouldn't starve.

i understand that minors can, and do, get pregnant.

The entire reason I even mentioned 'titties' Palin was because her parents named her 'titties.'

/and the Boobies ;)

/wot! i typed Boobies not boobies :-o

Better yet, way it against a ridiculous reply. I meant weigh not having to import against the inevitable killer bee strain.
