OUCH!  Take some Benadryl.  I've stirred up three yellow jacket nests so 
far this year, two different species, one of them is kind of black.  I 
only got stung six times, it was enough to throw me for several days.  
Usually I only have paper wasps but they seem to be down this year, 
possibly because of the yellow jacket competition. (?)

BTW the more you get stung in your life the more sensitive you will 
become.  I'm starting to get type one reactions (shortness of breath, 
one step closer to death...).  Watch for those, you might need to keep 
an Epi-pen on hand.

Six or so came in the house with me. I had a few more stings before I killed them. I stayed inside for awhile and watched out the window. The air was full of them. My right eye is still about half closed. I do not remember yellow jacket stings bothering me that much. These must be some hybrid version.

Windows, OSX, or Linux is the same choice as:
McDonald's, Burger King, or a (real) Co-Op.
