Coal is really a great energy source especially if it is properly refinde first, because then it becomes a really clean fuel.

My guess is the the poison sac was pulled off and the sting, which has tiny barbs on, was left in the foot. Always be very careful when trying to get a bee sting out.

Not a good feel when you react bad to a sting.

Thanks mate. That last link of yours actually gives a recommendation for the e-book that I was asking about. So that's even better still.
