I was sitting at the desk in my office the other evening when a small wasp flew down my shirt, stung me in the neck, and then stung me again in the hand as I tried frantically to remove my shirt. Ugh. Came outta nowhere. The stings hurt, but they weren't much compared to the electric-shock pain I've experienced when stung by a larger wasp.
What's the worst insect sting, spider bite, or the like that you've ever experienced? What's the worst kind of insect/spider sting or bite, period? Which do you fear most? And what the devil is the difference between a hornet and a wasp, anyway? Discuss.
