    To the Death

    Post by Lord Grey II on Sat Dec 05, 2009 1:30 pm

    Alright, important question time: Who would win in a fight between a gigantic but modest bee in an all-wool jumpsuit and a similarly gigantic moth?

    Notable past Answers:

    You'd be surprised how many times I'm asked this question. Normally I'd say the bee, but I the all-wool jumpsuit is an obvious liability. I'm sure it looks nice and probably cost a fortune, but everyone knows that when you're fighting giant moths you need to be fast and that wool will weigh you down. Wasp, hands down. Wait, are you sure it's modest? Maybe the jumpsuit has secret pockets. And maybe the pockets contain gigantic cans of Raid. Can I change my answer?
    You would think that when the moth devours the wool, the bee's modesty will cause it to flee. Didn't happen that way when I saw it, though. The bee had a candle that time, and let me tell you that makes all the difference.
    The bee. Bees are scary, and even modest bees have stingers. But I'm gonna go non-sequitor here too and say that a gigantic bear comes in and owns all.
    Sounds to me like a Godzilla off-shoot starring Mothra. I shall call the giant bee… Giga Pollitator. His powers: modest stun spores, modest all-wool constrictor threads, and a modest rocket-powered stinger. Mothra’s got its usual stuff. They’d take to the air, blasting each other with lasers and stingers, and ultimately Mothra would die and its larvae children would hatch and wrap Giga Pollitator up in a cocoon and drown it in the ocean. The Moth Family wins.
    But this isn’t about them. It about those who truly lose out: the citizens of Tokyo. With ancient dinos, giant bugs, zombies, mechs, demons, and more running around, millions of dollars of damage is caused a year. And I’m not talking about American dollars, but Canadian dollars. With all this going, millions more Japanese people then should be are filing for bankruptcy every year. However, YOU can help. If everyone in the world were to donate one buck to the Were Empire, I’ll be able to conquer Japan, and shut down the source of the problem: JAPANESE MOVIE MAKERS! That is all.
    Tough call, but I've gotta say this is a Tic-Tac-Toe scenario. I think the Moth would loose first, but in the process of defeating the Moth, the Bee would destroy itself. The only real way for either of them to win is to not play the game. I prefer chess anyway.

    If you say Chuck Norris, I promise I will personally go and modedit your answer to something incredibly embarrassing. :3

    I tested this in Pokemon Diamond with a Venomoth vs. a Beedrill. Naturally Venomoth won.

    But were they in the all-wool jumpsuits?

    That was actually the first thing that came to mind when I saw this. And no, they weren't wearing all-wool jumpsuits, though one was holding a power brace.

    Since they weren't wearing the all-wool jumpsuits, the experiment is invalid.

    the moth would win for 2 reasons.
    #1 Mothra could stand up to godzilla, I don't recall seeing a bee monster do the same.
    #2 Bee stings Moth, Bee dies..Moth possibly survives.
    thus the Moth wins.

    Damnit, the Realistic and Boring parts of my brain kicked in to fast, and all I can see is two giant, flying insects lying on the ground like two stranded whales unable to move because of their own body mass. So I say it would be a draw. They would both die due to their own weight (and suffocation, due to insects less efficient breathing apparatus).

    The moth would win cause the bee can only sting once and if the moth does not die from it the bee dies then the fight is over. Bee can only do this once and with a wool jumpsuit on would more the likly be slower and it would have to am for a vital organ to do some damage. So ya moth wins.

    You're talking about insect book-lungs, and they are efficient in a highly oxygenated atmosphere, just look at the size of some of the fozzilised Dragonflies, (some of them were 6 FEET long!!) and other invertebrates (there's a type of prehistoric centipede that reached 12 feet in length, and a prehistoric wasp that was 3 feet in length!!!). But our atmosphere's oxygen content has reduced by a significant amount, forcing the insect/invertebrate life with book-lungs to reduce their overall size to survive.

    What is this? Some sort of Socialist Cult debating team? Giant Land evolved jellyfish wins hands down. It lacks flight but makes up for it with a simpler biology and tendrisl. stinging tendrils.

    Bee always wins. if you kill one it releases stuffs that makes more come, thus moth loses eventually.
