when two scorpions meet...

they usually fight until one is dead.

they then celebrate by eating 1/3 of their body weight

you can't kill them by freezing them, for fun try freezing them in a block of ice for a week, then thaw them out with a blow torch, nope, nothing...

nor can you even kill them with an atom bomb (they have been found roaming nuclear test sites only hours afterward)

good news if you live in Mexico, there is a new anti-venom that safely, and almost instantly works to neutralize the venom of the scorpion, the Red Cross has been utilizing it for quite some time now; however, bad news if you live in the heavily scorpion-populated state of Arizona, where it's forbidden to purchase/administor the anti-venom because the United States Food & Drug Administration continues to drag its heels in the approval of this tested and proven resource [moral: if you get stung by a scorpion, make sure you're in Mexico not the United States]

But if I just let it melt in the sun, will the slowly melting ice liquify and drown the damned things?

Mocool, my friend, do not fret! As an ape, I have a feeling that you shall not be stung.

I hate Scorpions. And yes, I was almost stung by a scorpion in Mexico, had it not been for my auntie's insane screaming and pointing. I was too stupid to see what she meant, but my uncle got up and repeatedly stamp the thing to death - it took five huge stamps to kill it off, and he's a big guy.

Since I've been "stung," which song does everyone like better: "(Here I Am) Rocky You Like A Hurricane" or "The Winds of Change"?
