Like most rational people, I do not like to have my superstitions tampered
with ineptly.  Until such time as a better explanation is offered, I suggest
the practice be continued.

		- John F. Adams, "Beekeeping: The Gentle Craft", speaking of
		  the practice of "telling the bees," in which someone goes
		  to the beehives to tell the bees of the death of the
		  beekeeper or other nearby humans.
