Eph, Fly honey doesn't look very appealing, unless you are talking about someone's honey being fly.

#9 But a single sting can kill if the person has an anaphylactic reaction to it. There is a theory that bees have evolved their venom to specifically cause anaphylaxis in humans

I got stung on my middle finger once and my whole hand and forearm swelled up so much I couldn't even bend my fingers. I'm not afraid of bees, though, and don't panic when I see one because I understand nature well enough. Wasps and Hornets? Screw them. Those bastards are out to get you.
