By my calculations he should have some sort of superpowers now.

It might be a good move for someone to take out a life insurance policy on him. Perferrably one with a big payout.

They weren't very 'killer', were they? Bunch of wanna-bees, if you ask me.

Guy seems cool with the fact he only has five fingers and five toes. Most people would file disability. My hat is off to this man!

I have a tree with a power line running through the middle of it in my backyard. Maybe I should have the landlord give this guy a call. I'm sure a beekeeper will rent me some hive boxes for a few days. I'll set up a webcam and stream it.

/Really, though, good for him getting back up and going back to work.

Back in the 80's I was working on a jobsite with ironworkers. The Superintendant came out of retirement at 73 to run the job. He linped on both legs, was missing 2 fingers on one habd and 3 on the other. 2 weeks before we topped out, he had a stroke and didn't tell anyone, just kept coming to work. The project ended and he went back into retirement. 6 months later while fixing his barn roof, he fell off, breaking both legs, his back and 4 ribs. He crawled across his driveway, climbed into his truck and drove himself to the hospital. Tough ol' bastard.

"Africanized" doesn't have the same ring to it
That or 'roid rage bees works

/has family that are apiarists, no africanized bees this far north (yet) but I know enough of the breed/history and nearly had first hand experience of the bugs
//these are the relatives of the bees that made honey badger not care
