Scientists have recently discovered a fact about bees that has been staring us in the face for hundreds of years. Bees are, in fact, really, really thick.
A report for the "Old Scientist" has stated that in tests bees have the IQ of a subnormal neanderthal and cannot reasonably be expected to survive beyond the next 50 years based on their incredible stupidity.
In scientific tests using windows only 1% of bees can escape within 45 minutes even though the window is wide open. Even wafted towards the breezy gap, only 1% of bees will eventually find a way out of their own volition.
As to giving them sugary water, according to scientists bees are too moronic to even sip the stuff that might save their lives and will probably drown themselves by mistake.
The report suggests we shouldn't be surprised to discover that a creature that works tirelessly all its life to make honey that is then stolen and consumed by humans and then comes back year after year to do the same thing is as thick as pig shit.
