Episode-468- Call In Friday 7-2-10 — 11 Comments

  1. Yeah, I had the address right, but I think it was because the server got smashed with everyone entering the contest. My little daemon said “Sorry, the server took too long to respond. I’ve given up.” So apparently my server is not a survivalist. What a quitter. Hehehe.

  2. Does anyone happen to know which episode Jack was referring to when he mentioned building a compost bin in today’s episode? Is it Ep.407?

  3. @Patrick, It isn’t an episode there is a 30 minute instructional video on building a composting system in the Members Brigade.

  4. Okay, it’s bugging me and I’ve got to say it.

    Hornets don’t bite – they sting. And unlike the barbed stinger on a honeybee, a single hornet can sting multiple times. (And they will, because they’re sadistic little bastards that sting you for fun, in my opinion.)

  5. Interestingly enough, hornets both bite and sting.

    Only the sting contains venom, the bite just hurts.

    The more you know!

  6. @Pemmin

    You are correct, fire ants do the same thing, (evil little pricks). Anyone doubting it hold on with forceps and allow the mouth to touch your forearm but not the stinger. You will soon feel the truth behind what Pemmin says.

  7. If you need to kill bees without spraying nasty poisons all around, try the following, which I got from an old-time beekeeper.

    Mix one cup of liquid dishwashing liquid with a gallon of water, put it in a garden sprayer (you know, the kind with an air pump in the top) and spray the bees with it. They will drop from the air like they were shot. I had occassion to try it on some hornets that thought they owned our rear deck, and I was amazed at how well it worked.
