If anyone has ever wondered what it might feel like to be stung INSIDE THE NOSE by a bee, let me share. It feels like someone is trying to give you a nasal-entry lobotomy with a red-hot ice-pick. My left eye is still watering over an hour later. If this thing swells like my shin did when I was stung last month, I'm going to look like I went 15 rounds with Tyson.
What, did it bite your ear off too? ;<) nmMB1

I got bit by something last winter when I was descending about 25MPH. Some type of insect flew up one of my nostrils and the only way I could get it out was by snorting combined with a lot of yelling as it hurt like the dickens. Those little flying critters can do a lot of damage...

The stupid part is that I'm pretty sure I put the bee up my own nose. I was riding along and thought my nose was running, so I wiped it with the back of my hand. As soon as I did, I felt a stinging sensation in my nose and had no clue what it was. Then I felt something in there and blew out a bee. In hindsight, I'm pretty sure what felt like a runny nose was actually the bee at the base of my nose. When I tried to wipe, I pushed the bee up into my nose with my hand. Oh well.
Sorry about that, but...ACE-

I was rooting around up there one day and I pulled out an old Brooks Swift saddle. The thing must have been stuck up there for a couple of decades. Only thing is it's a woman's model and I kinda wonder what the heck I was doing at the time...
