The Olympic creed

The most important thing in the Olympic games is not to win but to take part. Just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential is not to have conquered but to have fought well.

I hope you have been inspired by the creed of the Olympics.

Why does a bee sting you?

If a bee feels provoked or annoyed  it is then alarmed and turns to self defence mode. There is a rule that it can only sting if it is threatened. They barely use this weapon that nature has given them.

The stinger of a bee is a fine sharp barbed tube. If a bee stings it can inject a drop of poison as well. It is the work of the worker bee because they are the ones that sting.

The bee only stings once but when the bee stings, the person usually knocks the bee away this with draws the bee from pulling the stinger out naturally.

A bee can sting as many times as we let it, if we do not whack them from their stinger.
