Remember the year the bees all but disappeared? Not many were left and beekeepers were beside themselves wondering if their livelihoods had been taken from them forever, only to realize a year later that the bees were back. Where did they go?

Quantum Physics may have part of the answer. Scientists are busy working on a theory that has to do with the bees' keen ability to form perfectly shaped hexagonal chambers in which the queen lays her eggs and in which the bees store their food source, honey. The hexagonal shape is said to be the most efficient of all geometrical shapes as it fills the largest amount of space with the least amount of material; in this case, wax.

The hexagonal shape is a simplistic version of the more complex hexahedron, also consisting of six sides and physicists consistently use the hexahedron shape to explain the existence of more than 3 dimensions.

It is believed that the bees have found a way to take the simpler hexagon and stack it side-by-side instead of within each other. By doing so, say the scientists, the bees may have formed portals from which to fly eagerly from the 3rd dimension to the 4th, completely disappearing from sight, while still remaining in the hive. Thus, everything they had been doing for a year would also be invisible, even though the bees and their offspring are quite healthy and alive in another dimension.

While the scientists are unable to prove their theory due to the fact that they have not been able to unlock the magical key that allows them to build an identical human-size honeycomb prototype with the same hexahedral properties that the bees seem to have invented, they have issued a preliminary report stating, with a bit of humor, that they are busy as bees working on one.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
