      Maybe he should have tried swatting first.

      More Weird But True.....

      A man who attempted to fight bothersome wasps with insect spray and a cigarette lighter burned down his apartment and two neighboring flats in Zurich, Switzerland.
      First, he used a whole can of insect spray on a nest, then tried to fend off the angry wasps with his lighter, sparking a massive blaze that caused more than $350,000 in damages

        This sounds fun

        And heres what you can do in Collage...
        last week dozens of daredevils lined up at Rutgers University, New Jersey to participate in a cricket-spitting contest.
        Contestants had to put brown crickets in their mouths, then spit them out as far as possible.
        The top prize went to Chris O'Donovan of Lawrenceville, who launched his cricket a remarkable 28 feet...
        Now that is a talented guy.

          PETI (People for the Ethical Treatment of Insects) is calling for a boycott of all Ivy League schools in protest of the inhumane treatment of poor, defenseless crickets. On another note, see what $40K a year in tuition gets you?

            August 29, 2003 -- Missouri's rivers have been invaded by crazy carp that jump into boats and attack fisherman. One state biologist boating near Columbia had a filling knocked from a tooth by a high-flying fish that struck him in the head, while another in St. Charles was seriously hurt when he was beaned by a giant carp.
            "This could be an indefinite problem," said state conservationist Brian Todd, who explained that the psycho fish are non-native carp that escaped from private fish hatcheries.

              Weird But True you worm

              September 2, 2003 The next time somebody calls you a worm, take it as a compliment.
              Scientists using genetic analysis have identified a tiny worm that lives in the mud at the bottom of Swedish fjords as mankind's long-lost cousin. The Xenoturbella bocki - "strange flatform" in Latin - is the closest-known invertebrate relative of humans. "It is fascinating to think that whatever long-dead animal this simple worm evolved from, so did we," said British researcher Max Trelford.

                September 3, 2003 -- Lonnie Boyd was knocked unconscious, his hair burned off and his hearing and heart damaged when he was struck by lightning - and now he's paying tribute to his near-death experience.
                To commemorate the near-tragedy in Madeira Beach, Fla., Boyd, 50, is getting a tattoo of a lightning bolt, with the time and date he was struck, on his right arm. "If it blew my ears off my head, I'd still be happy to be alive," he said.

                  September 20, 2003 -- You could call it the fright of the bumblebee.
                  John Nunes of Winston, Ore. was driving and singing along to the Justin Timberlake song "Rock Your Body" on his car radio when a bee flew into his mouth.

                  Nunes, 19, panicked, swerved off the road, plunged down a 15-foot embankment and hit a tree. He suffered minor injuries. The bee's condition is not known.

                      September 21, 2003 -- A 9-year-old Florida girl was burned on her face, neck and arm by an exploding piece of candy. Taquandra Diggs of Starke was holding a large piece of jawbreaker candy in her hand and when she went to put it in her mouth, it popped violently.

                      "It hurt a bunch," said Diggs. The FDA is analyzing the candy.

                          September 24, 2003 -- Oregon State University plans to use a $1.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation to count bugs. Researchers there say that counting insects could help protect the environment and give scientists a better understanding of their ecological role.

                                September 25, 2003 -- Mayor Bloomberg took Russian President Vladimir Putin to Randalls Island yesterday to watch rookie members of New York's Bravest and a squad of 20 Russian firefighters work out at an FDNY training facility. Among the skills they learned was use of the famed "jaws of life" tool, which easily cuts through mangled vehicles where victims are trapped.
                                "In order to save other people you must be very solid inside - as they are," Putin said.
                                Afterward, the mayor gave Putin an FDNY shirt with "V. Putin" on the back and a battalion chief's helmet. Putin returned the favor by handing Bloomberg a silver Russian fire helmet.
