This weekend at Yaoi Con we had a couple of leftover SDCC exclusives saved for some of our most awesome fans~ 

And as a bonus, our tip jar from Yaoi Con which went to our friends at Misadventure Central (creators of SpaceJinx) to celebrate their Nic Cage Activity Fun Book. (Get it in their store. Seriously, it’s only $5.)

Syngenta, a massive pesticide company has just petitioned the U.S. government to increase the legal limit for its bee-killing pesticides by 40,000%.

That’s right. Fourty. Thousand. Percent.

Bees are already facing a massive global die-off. This could be a death sentence for millions more bees.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is accepting public input on the decision for the next 27 days. We need to use that time to organize beekeepers and the public to speak out against this devastating bee-killing proposal. Can you chip in to help fight for the bees?

Please, share and donate. Without bees we’re doomed.

Homemade Lip Balm

Lips are extremely susceptible to drying out-much more so than other parts of our body, as they are always exposed to the elements, and really have only a thin layer of skin to protect them. This is why we turn to lip balm.

By now you’ve probably heard that lip balm dries your lips out, which in turn makes you apply more, and then it turns into an addicting habit that isn’t doing you, or your lips, any favors. That is, to some extent, true. Certain lip balms do contain ingredients that feel good at first, but leave you with the need to put more on just an hour or 2 later as they dry up, and leave your skin even drier.

This homemade balm is designed to help seal in moisture and not just dry up and off, but actually sink into your lips. It also won’t leave a slick, exclusive barrier. Use with a homemade exfoliator to help slough off all the dead, dry, and peeling off skin that comes along with rough chapped lips and reveal the softness underneath

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon grated beeswax or beeswax pastilles
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  • A dash of organic raw honey
  • 2 vitamin e capsules
  • several drops of essential oil (optional)

Process:

  • In a double boiler, melt down the beeswax, adding in the coconut oil and honey when about half of the beeswax is no longer solid. After it’s all melted and blended together, stir in the contents of 2 vitamin E capsules. Pour into container or a tube and let cool. Apply as needed-but not in excess. Resist! There can always be too much of a good thing.

The Kingdom of the Bees

So work the honeybees;
Creatures, that by a rule in nature, teach
The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
They have a king, and officers of sorts:
Where some like magistrates, correct at home;
OThers, like merchants, venture trade abroad;
Others, like soldiers, armed in their stings.
Make boot upon the summer’s velvet buds;
Which pillage they with merry march bring home
To the tent-royal of their emperor:
Who, busied in his majesties, surveys
The singing masons building roofs of gold;
The civil citizens kneading up the honey;
The poor merchanic porters crowding in
Their heavy burthens at his narrow gate;
The sad-ey’d justice, with his surly hum,
Delivering o’er to exectuors pale
The lazy yawning drone.

- William Shakespeare

i am hyperventilating

i just killed a bee with a one inch legspan

i have a BIG FUCKING PHOBIA OF FUCKING BEES THANK YOU VERy MUCH I’M LIKE READY TO CRY


I THOUGHT IT WAS A BEETLE

BUT I KILLED IT


I LITERALLY PRAYED TO LORD JESUS LIKE “GIVE ME STRENGTH TO NOT FUCKING DIE”

AND I’M FUCKING AGNOSTIC 

IT HAD A STINGER THAT WOULD’VE KILLED ME.

I’M ALLERGIC EVEN TO BEESWAX AND I CANT CALM DOWN

IT WAS HUGE

IT WAS SO FUCKING HUGE EVEN MY BROTHER WIMPED THE FUCK OUT

IT LANDED IN MY GRAPHICS CARD BOX AFTER I HIT IT AND I KILLED IT FOR GOOD WITH THE CORNER OF A FLOPPY DISK SO I REFUSE TO HEAR PEOPLE SHITTING ON FLOPPIES

WE HAVE AN INACTIVE BEES NEST IN MY WINDOW WALL

IM TERRIFIED THEYRE GETTING IN

IM ABOUT TO FUCKING CRY

For almost a month now, just about every 3 days, I’ll be walking and I feel something hit my head and, when I take it off my head, it’s a bee. But it never stings me (on the head or hand). Almost every time I have a book out and I’m outside, even if it’s raining a little, a bee or two will come sit on my book. Right now I’m laying in the grass and 3 bees (THREE!!!) came and just sat on my arm for a minute and then left. They land on my hands a lot too & just chill there. What do bees mean spiritually or symbolically??? Someone help me. This is so fucking weird.
