DAY 15

This is the mountain of training manuals that I have received (so far). I think it's safe to say that I'll be experiencing some weight limit issues at the airport (again) when it's time to go home.

Classes were great again today, but are getting more and more challenging. Most important thing I learned today: Never eat a banana around bees. Isopentyl acetate is (also in beer) what's responsible for the scent of bananas. Apparently, bees release ~1 microgram of it when they sting, in order to attract other bees to join in the attack. Now I have to go figure out how many carbon atoms are present in a typical bee sting.
