A total of six people have been killed in northeast China after a truck carrying dozens of beehives overturned, releasing a swarm of bees which stung three to death and later provoked three further fatalities as two lorries collided while attempting to avoid the massed insects. The truck bearing the beehives crashed into a farm …
Whilst this is an interesting story...
I can't quite understand what the buzz is all about.
Thats it !
There goes the chinese economy ...
New sat nav option....
...avoid bee roads.

Dangerous Highways, Safe Cities
Driving on Chinese highways is very dangerous. European people who are new in China who come to work in my office are often a bit terrified at the start due to the risky way cars and lorries overtake each other. High speeds + risky driving behaviour + many overloaded lorries + no-one wearking their seatbelt = lots of deaths.
In the cities themselves, the speeds are pretty slow. Car drivers need to keep a constant eye for people and bikes suddenly cutting across them - and because a car hitting someone often means the car driver having to negotiate a payment to the person they just knocked, the car drivers do act carefully (they still drive in a way that would make Westerners very worried, but they can brake in time each time some emergency comes up which is quite often).
'...as pictures in the Telegraph show.'
Am I the only person who can't see anyone wearing any protective clothing??
I see one guy with a jacket over his head alright but I can't say I would class that as protective hahahaha.
Paris; cause even she wouldn't go out in that with only a jacket over her head for protection!
I wonder what sort of yellow hazardous cargo sign you need when you are carrying swarms of deadly bees on your lorry?
In future I will keep an eye out and make sure I have all my windows up when I see one,.
You could say they need to create a RAID array
Coat, Hat and Gloves are on the left there
Reading too much of el Reg maybe?
But was I the only one hoping that the Telegraph would have a playmobil reconstruction of the accident?
Inquiring minds want to know...
... were these robo-brain-control DARPA bees, by any chance?
Black helicopter, because it's all a CIA black-ops conspiracy. Probably.
So is this...
... where all the British bees have gone? Are the Chinese secretly swiping our bees?
That the only Bee pun I could think of, was already used
Gotta love Globalisation
Not only are we supposed to take notice whenever somewhere in China the good ol' sack'o'rice tips over, no, we also get pictures.

Did you ask Sarah
IT Angle - Sarah
Sarah - got stinging remark?
"Are the Chinese secretly swiping our bees?"
No, the goverment have hived them off.
Doubtless, they'll show it...
On the Bee-Bee-See
The reg needs a contest for bad puns
@ Jason Croghan
From what I've read, Paris has had more pricks than a second-hand dartboard.
Her biggest worry would be if it matched her outfit. Red polka dot frock I should imagine, and some prophylactics for protection
I wonder what the correlation is between the likelihood of pedestrians/cyclists darting out in front of cars; and the likelihood that they could receive cash for being hit?
Just a thought.
to quote Austin Powers and many others "Oh, Beehive"
(Do bees have nectar cards?)
"There had been seven deadly accidents on the same section of road in three months, the newspaper said. "
