I have a problem with the 'bumblebee' question

Ignoring the fact that bumblebees couldn't fly 1000 mph..
This question is also assuming that the time it takes the bee to actually change direction is zero, which is really stupid and flies in the face (no pun intended) of everything I know about physics as the bee would be experiencing tremendous G loads on every change in direction...

Unless of course the bee has zero mass... thereby making it a 'non-bee' ..

Bee or non-bee, that is the question. :-)
