Fun Fact, Cockroaches Can Live In Your Skull And Bees Can Hang Out In Your Eyes

One word: Ew


To the knowledge of most, bees are truly non-harmful, unless feeling threatened by something or someone. In fact, to others, bees are actually considered to be "amazing and adorable." Unfortunately, that was not the case for a recent Taiwanese woman who lived the worst nightmare possible when a doctor found that she had several bees stuck inside her eye.

The incident occurred as the woman was visiting a loved one's grave and doing a mere weed clean-up, when all of a sudden, she felt that something, "flew inside," her left eye.

According to BBC News, these bees are actually not like any other, because they are attracted to one single factor: sweat.

Dr. Hong Chi Ting, who spoke to BBC News, informed that while he was treating the patient and pulling the bugs out of her eye, the bees were actually still alive.

On top of the already horror-filled news knowing that the woman had living bugs stuck inside her eye, there's more still to come — the doctor told BBC News, that she was wearing contact lenses and if she rubbed her eyes, she could have lost her eyesight completely.

But for your information, bees are actually not the only bugs that can make a surprise guest appearance — cockroaches are also found to crawl inside your head!

A cockroach actually went and walked inside the nostrils of a woman reaching all the way up to her sinuses, as reported by National Geographic.

The issue that these two cases have in common, is that yep you guessed it, this cockroach was also found alive just like the bees.

For the sake of humanity and health in general, I have uncovered two simple suggestions on what to do if a bug decides to make an unpleasant pop-up appearance: Do not panic and get a check-up.

I know, if a bug does crawl inside you, the first thing that you want to do is kill it, scream & run. But, that may cause even more harm, instead of helping yourself get out of the situation as fast as possible.

Just try to breathe and keep yourself as calm as possible in order to think clearly.

Secondly, when getting a check-up, your doctor might just be as creeped out as you because you have a living bug stuck inside your body. But, at the end of the day, they are there to help you out and make sure that you are safe! So, if you feel that the situation is getting worse, don't be afraid to call or reach out for help.

And finally, remember to stay safe out there! Become aware of the things surrounding you and keep your bug spray on you.

You truly do not want to be another case of horror that a news platform reports about.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
