We bee amazingly organised, and I quote:
When 10,000 honeybees fly the coop to hunt for a new home, usually a tree cavity, they have a unique method of deciding which site is right: With great efficiency they narrow down the options and minimize bad decisions.
Their technique, says [...] biologist Thomas Seeley, includes coalition building until a quorum develops.
This all by an, ahem, beestie about the size of a match folded in half! Why can’t we proud/thundering/organised/eager great bipeds — weighing perhaps 20,000 to 60,000 times as much apiece and with brains massing maybe 700 times as much as the whole critter — manage similar functions anything like as well? D’oh?
