This Guy Got A Huge Wasp Nest From eBay; Wait Till You See What’s Inside

That’s a big NOPE!

When you spot a wasp nest, it’s already a big nope for you. While most people think it’s one of the scariest discoveries they can make, one guy intentionally bought a giant one from eBay.

It’s amazing just how eBay has everything –even a wasp nest, but this guy actually got one just to show you what’s really inside it. You might start to imagine something from a sci-fi movie featuring alien creatures breaking their way out of a nest. But don’t worry, there’s nothing of that sort.

Wasp nest can vary in size; some can be so small while others can be so gigantic, it’s urgent you need to call an exterminator. The one on the video actually had the same size or even a bit bigger than a basketball. It also belonged to paper wasps, which use plant material mixed with their saliva to construct their nest that resembles paper.

The nests are home to these insects and it is where they lay their eggs and raise their hatchlings, so you should have a pretty good idea of what’s inside.

Paper wasps are not really treated as pests; in fact, they are beneficial since they help with pollination via nectar feeding. They also feed on pest insects by turning them into larvae food. Despite this, they still shouldn’t be allowed to thrive near houses because they sting and they can be extremely painful. For those who are allergic to their venom, things can get ugly and deadly.

The guys from What’s Inside are back and they’re here to let you see what’s hidden inside a wasp nest. If you’re curious and want to check out the inside of a wasp nest, you should just watch the video. It’s actually cool. Also, remember that it’s not recommended for you to remove wasp nests without help from professionals.

Amazing German Machine Trades in Plastic Bottles for Money or Groceries

This system significantly reduces the waste we produce and sure is more fun than simply throwing your bottles in the waste bin!

By

Plastic products are a staple in our daily lives. We use it for PET bottles for beverages, containers for food, bags for groceries, and countless many other common household items. However, our increasing use of plastic bottles also endangers our environment and our ecosystem.

In recent years, communities and countries have been shifting towards using "green" products instead of plastics in order to reduce the waste we generate. Recycling has also become common practice, with many companies and countries taking the initiative in providing innovative and creative ways of encouraging recycling among its consumers. One such example of this is the bottle recycling machine in Germany, where PET bottles can be deposited in the machine in exchange for money.

In Germany, when a person buys a canned or a bottled beverage, they are charged with a few extra cents to encourage consumers to return the bottle. Once empty, the bottles can be deposited in the bottle recycling machines, where different types of bottles have different corresponding amounts. The machine prints out a receipt with the details of how much the recycled bottles amounted to, which the consumer can then exchange for cash or groceries at the counter. Pretty neat, huh?...

Is Bathing Your Feverish Child Helpful or Harmful?

Fever is the body’s way of letting you know it’s fighting off an infection.

For years, people are accustomed to the idea that if someone is feverish, he or she should turn to fever-reducing medications, followed by a tepid sponge bath just so the body’s temperature will be reduced. The common notion is to treat the fever, but according to many medical experts, there is no need to do so because fever in itself is not an illness.

In fact, fever is part of the body’s defense mechanism; it’s a way of telling you that the body is doing something to fight off an infection. For most adults, having a fever can be uncomfortable but most of the time, it shouldn’t be a cause for concern, except when body temperatures exceed 39.4 C.

On the other hand, little children with high temperatures indicate that there may be an underlying infection....
