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.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
