  4. As if Mother Nature didn't give us enough buzzing, stinging, annoying creatures. On the bright side they're too noisy to spy on anyone.

  9. As cool as this is, I can just picture a swarm of these armed with tazers unleashed on protesters to keep them in line, bye bye civil rights, hello big brother. I guess one good thing is in the future, there may no longer be any hand to hand combat, just remote assaults with multiple casualties.
