Giant hornet attacks in China leave at least 41 dead

...The Shaanxi provincial government said Wednesday the attacks had plagued not only the city of Ankang, where 19 died as reported by the official Xinhua News Agency, but had killed 22 others in two adjacent cities.

All told, 1,600 people have been injured, and 37 of them are in critical or serious condition in hospitals.

The provincial government says it has mobilized a special medic team and trained more medical personnel to treat victims....

LOOK OUT!!

:( Yeah, I read that. I feel pretty tough with those cans of hornet spray that shoot out about 6 feet. The spray is non-marking and does not smell too much, so I do battle with armies of ants at 2am in the kitchen or bathroom some nights. :budo: Guess I better stay on this side of the planet. :katana:

The Asian Hornet. That sounds like an oriental superhero who goes around solving math problems.

The Calculator of Justice is powered by the ignorance of Americans. It never dies down.
