quote:Originally posted by DonnahIt's never too late John. Tell her your story and see if she'll go for it. Of course you may do better with your story if it is accompanied by a rose (to represent the one the wasp sat on just before he attacked you).

quote:Bumble bees can't flyOf course, bumble bees can fly. But if you are like most people, you have heard (and maybe believed) the legend about an engineer that proved it was aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly. Bah, humbug!There are several versions regarding the origin of this myth. The generally accepted version has it that the calculations were speculations overheard by a member of the media during a reception. Once the story was printed, it slipped into our collective memory banks. Unfortunately, less attention has been given to the retraction that was issued almost immediately. The retraction didn't make it into the papers, the damage was done and an urban legend was born.
