I wouldn't mind having a closer look. Besides, it won't attack Humans for the fun of it. Providing you don't flap your arms at it, there's no reason to be scared. Most species with similar behaviours look pretty big and intimidating. The tarantula hawk wasp for example, which paralyses tarantulas to feed to their larvae. They also tend to be solitary, so you don't need to fear disturbing a colony of them. It's interesting.
Why can't they all be bumblebees, they're the cutest bugs ever in existence :c [video=youtube;Q-HBOTQWZ7E]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-HBOTQWZ7E[/video]
Looks brutal, I want to see one in action.
[QUOTE=BenJammin';35339173]Just go away please. First you quote information without saying the source so it seems like that is what the wasp actually does, then you mention later it's from that fucking terrible book and movie? You don't belong in facepunch.[/QUOTE] "stop liking what I don't like because I represent all of facepunch and I think you should go away." :downs: Anyways, that wasp is horrifying. I mean, it looks pretty cool looking, and then you see it also has giant fucking mandibles.
[QUOTE=mopman999;35345020]I think I've seen one of those things, I was mowing the lawn and it started chasing me Or it was a irradiated bumblebee[/QUOTE] They reside in Japan. Japanese Giant Hornets.
time to breed terrifying spiders to murder all of them.

It's a shame the insects are so small nowadays. Would be quite cool to live 300 million years back when insects could get as big as 70 cm.

Goodbye, Indonesia. We hardly knew you.....
Oh shit, I run away at relativistic speeds when I see a normal, mostly docile bee due to a MASSIVE phobia. If I saw this bastard coming at me, I would run so fast I would make light-speed look like sound-speed.
Burn all of Indonesia.
[QUOTE=KingPariah;35339165]I would be OK with this becoming an endangered species.[/QUOTE] Environmentalists and animal rights activists only care when the animal at risk is physically appealing. See that species of insect over there? Yeah, it's endangered and is really REALLY fucking important for something, but who gives a shit, the cute fuzzy sheep-kitten there is also endangered, and it does nothing, it's so useless that it actually harms the ecosystem, but we gotta save it, because it's cute.

I'd be able to bash my head against a keyboard and create a better story, hell even Twilight has a better story.
Read is as King of the wasps so I thought they meant someone was just able to live with wasps like they are nothing. Got something much worse.

Just what I need, more fuel to feed my phobia of bees/wasps/hornets/stingers...These fuckers better stay in Indonesia.

[QUOTE=Swebonny;35347944]It's a shame the insects are so small nowadays. Would be quite cool to live 300 million years back when insects could get as big as 70 cm.[/QUOTE]Fuck that. Maybe if they were locked up far far away from me sure, but if they were as widespread as bugs today? I'd get a heart attack every time I went outside

Good thing I have no intentions to visit Indonesia. Although I hope that there are no big hurricanes or some shit that could fly the fuckers to other countries.
