I wouldn't mind watching, just to get an idea about it's effectiveness.  But if the video is just a guy shooting a hornets nest and not being attacked, it wouldn't be interesting enough to go viral.
Hence the "waiting".

I have a friend who uses a shotgun on hornet's nests.  So far he hasn't been stung, and he claims it's highly effective.  I'm not convinced, however.

Well, it would certainly work from a distance.  And a distance is what I would want from hornets!

Possible equation for shooting a hornet nest:  D (damage to hornet nest) x S (speed of hornet travel) - T (travel time of shooter to inside of house).  So D*S-T equals likelihood of being stung mildly or fatally.  Minor variables would include species of hornet, clumsiness of shooter, and IQ of shooter (this being a double variable as the higher the IQ the less likely the event to occur AND the lower the IQ, the more likely the shooter will stand there stupidly and watch the hornets go crazy).

Hell, just take off and nuke 'em from orbit - it's the only way to be sure...

Yeah, only way to be sure...

Isn't it amazing how many movie plots would be stopped in their tracks with a little logic?  I'm finding it harder to watch sci-fi movies these days because the characters have to make Bad Decisions. 

Can you just imagine the Alien movies starting out.  "Wow, eggs, BURN 'EM, BURN 'EM ALL"!  LOL!  And thanks folks for comin to the show, buy some popcorn on the way out!
