Golf Magazine Calls Bee Study “Frivolous”

A magazine dedicated to knocking a ball into a hole in the ground is calling a bee study frivolous. I can imagine no greater authority on frivolity than a magazine called Golf DigestHere’s a link to their flippancy. While you are there, be sure to watch some of the golf videos that show people knocking their small white balls into holes in the ground.

  2. The link to the golfers “attacked” on a course in France by a swarm is typical hysteria—one of the commenters at least has the insight to note that “they won’t hurt you if you don’t swat at them” As a woman in a family rampant with men obsessed with spherical objects hit, shot, punched, or thrown in all manner of “games” (can you tell I find this activity frivolous?) the notion that Golf Digest would have this take on bee cognition experiments is not surprising!

    I think the study authors were focused on bumblebees playing football, as in soccer. Perhaps they were jealous that their sport wasn’t getting the attention.
