🐝🐝OWW's Bee Tips🐝🐝

Alright I love bees. And honestly I have idiots at my school who kill them. So let’s get some stuff straight.

🐝Bees are Harmless. They won’t sting you randomly. I’ve had a few crawl over my skin out of curiosity. Not a single sting. They will sting, if provoked. Even if it was an accident. (I hit one with my bag at six flags and didn’t know until I got stung.)
🐝Bees work hard for our environment. Please, stop killing them. They pollinate and help plants we need grow and flourish.
🐝If you see a bee struggling to fly or move, its most likely dehydrated and give them some sugar water and wait until they can fly on their own. They may come back for more as they have done that with a few of my drinks before.
🐝If you’re allergic to bees, DONT SWAT OR HIT THEM AWAY! That’s the worst thing you can do. Stay still. Gently push them away if you feel you won’t provoke them, and they won’t freaking sting you. I’m tired of seeing that as an excuse to kill them too. THEY ARE HARMLESS
🐝Bees get curious when they smell something sweet/sugary like perfumes and drinks. They also tend to be attracted to colors. They’re just curious. Looking for things to pollinate and stuff to get nectar. DONT SWAT THEM AWAY.
🐝Find a local BEE KEEPERS NUMBER THAT COLLECTS BEES FROM HOUSES AND PLACES if there are bees at you’re home and you’re worried. DONT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR! You’re just helping them become more extinct.
🐝Bee Keepers know what’s best. Please ask them questions if you are really curious.
🐝"Wait but Bee Keepers where those body suits to protect themselves from bee stings. Doesn’t that mean that bees will jus–“ No. They wear that suit when they’re going in to check on the hive, collect honey, feed them and everything that can be seen as provoking them. When a bees hive is in danger, they swarm. So yes. They have protective gear, but you don’t have to worry because they don’t do that UNLESS PROVOKED!
🐝BEES ARE HARMLESS UNLESS PROVOKED!
🐝STOP PROVOKING THE BEES AND MAYBE YOU WONT GET STUNG
🐝STOP KILLING BEES JUST BECAUSE YOURE SCARED OF THEM OR SIMPLY DONT LIKE THEM
🐝THEY WONT INTENTIONALLY HURT YOU LIKE OTHER STINGING INSECTS
🐝BE NICE TO THE BEES THEY DO SO MUCH FOR US AND YOURE ALL ASSHOLES BY BEING RUDE TO THEM
🐝SAVE THE BEES!!!!

There is no way to exploit an animal and love them at the same time (regarding beekeeping)

Let me tell you a story about two beehives.


We’ve all seen a beehive in the wild, yes? If you have not, it’s a small thing with very limited space for honey and brood. The bees spend days of labor to build this entire hive with not so much space, which leaves less time to collect precious honey for the winter. “We must hurry!” Say the wild bees. “Soon winter will come and we need to stock up on food!!”

Now let’s move on to the beekeeper’s hive. It’s nice and big, with lots of space and a grid that makes it easy to build honeycomb and fill it with nice sweet honey. “We have lots of space and spare time with this nice big new home!” The bees say, and they fill the whole thing up with food storage and nurseries.

“HA!” Laugh the wild bees. “Your hive is full, and now you have nothing to do!”

“No matter” say the honeybees. “Our beekeeper has added a whole new room to our hive! Now we can collect and store even more honey and brood!” The honeybees and wild bees continue to collect pollen and nectar, when suddenly, an epidemic of mites comes to bee meadow!

“These mites are awful!” Says one wild bee to another.

“They sure are!” The honeybee colony agrees.

The wild worker scoffs and says with a smug tone “Where is your beekeeper now? Surely they cannot save you from this terrible sickness!”

“Our beekeeper came by yesterday, and cured us of our mites!” The honeybee happily replied. “And they’re putting up a fence tomorrow because they heard there are predators in the area!”


Spring and summer passed by as usual. All of the bees collected pollen and nectar at their own pace.
Then, one autumn afternoon, the hive of wild bees discovers that the honeybees had been ROBBED! Robbed by their own beekeeper!

“HA HA!” Laughed the wild bees. “Your beekeeper betrayed you! And now you will never survive the winter! All of that protection and safety for naught!”

“Actually, we have plenty of honey.” The honeybees say. “We have even more than you do!”

It was true. The wild bees were stunned to see that their neighboring hive had plenty of honey to get by on, while their own honey stores would just barely get them through the winter.

“Well I’ll be!” the wild bees exclaim. “Maybe this beekeeping business isn’t as bad as I thought!”

In short, if you buy from a kind local beekeeper, the honey that comes to your kitchen is always going to be EXTRA honey. Honey the bees made way too much of because they had the resources to do so. When we take honey, we carefully brush each bee off of each frame and take extra special care that nobody gets hurt.

I hope you can understand what I’m trying to say. Also, commercial beekeepers tend to not be quite so good. They take all the bee’s winter supply and feed them sugar water (still fairly safe!), they have too many hives in one place and exhaust their resources, etc etc.


In the shortest of short; Support local beekeepers. More safe hives means more safe bees. Plant bee flowers. Be kind. (Bee kind, heehee.)


Sorry for the long post, and please enjoy the rest of your day.

Let’s talk about how AWESOME worker bees are.

I’ve been doing some research and discovered some pretty intense stuff.

I’m assuming you know about each bee’s hard-core role in & out of the hive; drones mate, workers collect honey, etc. But, my friends, THAT’S NOT ALL! They have SO many more jobs to do than just that, especially worker bees when they reach certain ages.

Guards

The way that they go about protecting their hive astonishes me, and those who defend the colony are by far my FAVOURITE. Before going to explore the flowers, they have to inspect EVERY SINGLE BEE that comes into the hive. If it doesn’t have a familiar scent, then that means it’s a foreigner. The only time other bees are allowed into the hive is if they bribe the worker bee with nectar.

But- get this- if there ever is a lack of food in the hive during the winter, the worker bees will literally BLOCK the drones from coming into the hive in general. They won’t even let them in. It’s insane.

Cleaners

When a worker bee is first born, they instantly develop the knowledge of cleaning their cell. They do this so that new eggs, nectar, and pollen can be stored. But get this- if they do it wrong, the Queen tells them to do it ALL OVER again!! This is a very human-like characteristic that’s fascinating to see in insects.

Undertakers

The job of the undertaker doesn’t happen until the worker bees have matured a bit. Due to a number of bees in the hive, eventually a few will perish. So, to ensure that there are no possible health threats exposed to the colony, undertakers will remove and dispose of all dead or diseased bees or embryos. It’s sad, but it’s something they have to do to ensure the hive is healthy.

Nurses

These bees really do deserve their names. They take on the task of incubating and caring for the larvae, along with feeding the queen larva royal jelly. According to BBC Earth, they also “prescribe” different types of honey to bees that are sick, as a way of giving them medication.

Builders

Worker bees can start to make wax flakes from consuming plenty of honey & nectar, their food, at the age of 12 days old. This is what ultimately creates the shape of their hives, which truly is an engineering masterpiece as Charles Darwin has said.

These are only a few that I’ve discovered. But the more I research them, the more I realize how intelligent they truly are.

Bees are cool. Let’s save them.

at least maybe the FB C-NN traffic will get more people interested in Hunger Pangs

With any luck :D

I’m not mad about it getting more attention, far from it. I just get irked when my blog gets screen capped and then people don’t bother to include a link. It’s just like, common decency man. Source people.

Especially when you get sites like buzzfuck and huffpo stealing shit on a regular basis and using it to make money for clickbait. 

Now that’s extremely annoying. Especially because they never ask you permission or bother to post credit. They just screen cap it and refer to you as “a blogger” or “tumblr” like we’re a witty collective hive mind.

The huffpo one annoyed me the most because it wasn’t a shitpost it was a deeply personal post about my health and they were using it to talk about the ramifications of how underpaid sick people are in the US and how that affects their health, and I was sourced as “a well known blogger” and then just didn’t link to me or even ask if they could use my words. I had to go fucking toe-toe with the “journalist” for hours, a person with no experience of being chronically ill, or presumably ability to write because she just copy pasted my post verbatim. In the end it was taken down but boy was I pissed.

So far the only place that has linked to me off the bat without me having to prompt them was TOR publishing, and it was because of the Glitter 4 Carrie thing I did on May the 4th that wound up trending. That was surreal. Wonderful, but surreal. 

Date a girl who reproduces asexually on a regular basis for her growing hive mind collective. Date a girl who has, by her current estimate, roughly 7,000 identical bodies that have all blended in with human civilization, doubling every couple years

Technical Praising~

You know, the fact that we end up playing the character now known as Darkiplier and Mark ends up playing the character now known as Wilford Warfstache makes a lot of sense.  How?  Well, let’s see if I can set this up.

For one thing, Mark made Wilford.  He was the one who established his character, quirks, antics, ever since the very beginning.  You could assume that he would be the very first personality he ever “made”.

Originally posted by cinnamon-grump

So to symbolize that, he was the one who played him in the end scene.  He was the one who was the heart and soul of Wilford.  So he would be the one playing his goofy antics in the end.

Meanwhile, on the other side, we the fandom were the one who created Darkiplier.  We made the personality, the appearance, the mannerisms.  We’re the ones who technically “birthed” him.  We’re “embodying” a bit of Mark when we make more lore about him.

Originally posted by glittchiplier

And how much better way to show that off than to have us, the viewer, be the host of the man we’ve all created. The personality that we’ve all started.

As a collective hive mind.  As a man who held such a big mystery to all of us.

As Darkiplier.

Baltic mythology: Austėja

Austėja - ancient Lithuanian bee goddess, protector of bees and blossoms from which they collect honey and material for their honeycombs. Her cult is strongly connected with beekeeping, especially wild-hive apiculture. Austėja‘s first image was also a bee that is why people respect these insects as much as their goddess. They were amazed by how well organized the bees are, how much their life reflects human life and felt fascinated by the mystery of a bee’s death. Trees, in which they settled down, became as sacred as the bees themselves. Out of respect for them, people did not dare to brawl, quarrel, curse or act inappropriate in front of bees and whenever they found a dead bee they would bury it.

During Bičkopis feast (honey collecting from hives) people honored Austėja by showing their respect to verdure from which bees collect honey, collected honey themselves and sacrificed some of it to Austėja. Another tradition is to invite bičiuliai (your closest and the most loyal friends) and share the honey with them; they believed it pleases the goddess and motivates bees to be more hard-working. People also venerated god of drones and mead Bubilas, Austėja’s husband.

Her name itself comes from words audėja (weaver), austi (to weave); just like spiders weave their webs, bees weave their honeycombs. It is believed that Lithuanian words that refer to weaving were originally used to describe bees creating their hives and only later adapted to define the making of fabrics.

There is not much known about Austėja’s human-like appearance yet traditionally she is portrayed as a beautiful young woman with blond hair and yellow or golden clothes, sometimes wearing a flower crown.

theory: trump is a cockroach,  WAIT hear me out

He’s trying to build a wall, right?

You know what likes walls?

Cockroaches. 

You know what could survive a nuclear blast?

Cockroaches. 

Trump is going to build a wall on the Canadian border, hear me out. 

He’s going to box Americans in. 

And then he’s going to lay his little eggs in our homes and wallgreens and kmarts and Dave and Busters’. 

And then we’re all eaten alive, screaming and begging for help but unable to reach anyone cuz Trump fired all the ambassadors and he’s built up walls, political and physical, to trap us in his cockroach hive. 

But the outside world hasn’t heard from America in years, right?

So the day Trump finally tears down the wall and the world, tear-stricken and clutching their hankies, finally about to see the Americans again after all these years of utter radio silence, what happens?

It begins. 

The War. 

The War of the Roaches. 

He’s been preparing his nuclear arsenal. 

Humans never had a chance. 

The roaches are free. 

They are coming. 

They sweep Mexico and South America and Canada and what can we do?

Nothing, our biggest weapons are powerless to the roach hoard. 

We are powerless to their hardened exoskeletons and ability to survive. 

Europe thought it was safe. 

But the roaches are a highly evolved form of roach. 

Those years of hiding have paid off. 

They are coming. 

In drones. 

They fall onto the city and there’s nothing to be done, they have an immunity to bug spray and they’re impossible to smoosh, their skeletons are battle-hardened and prepared from years and years of training in American soil. 

They overtake Western Europe, and begin once more to build walls. 

Humanity is losing. 

Humanity has poisoned its water and food supply, but cockroaches can eat anything. They will survive.

They watch as humanity resorts to fighting one another and murdering each other instead of coming up with a way to preserve the resources they have left.

Meanwhile, roaches begin to collect plastic and create boats out of the Pacific Garbage Heap. 

They begin their tertiary siege.

Soon, they will begin to take over the freezing regions. 

They will create a resistance.

They have assimilated human technology. 

They will adapt.

Humans and their cultural adaptation, well.

Humans are in a disarray ever since Trump came into power.

They are no longer a worthy opposition. 

The roaches will rule. 

They are a hive, a collective, a united front. 

They do not see the differences of their shells, merely their similar form, their DNA, their shared kinship. 

Humans, individuals, are weak and squabbling.

They argue over battle tactics and what is a human life, is it worth losing one, is it right to quel the opinions of dissenters in a time of war?

Are other humans worth saving? 

Meanwhile, the roaches are preparing. 

Swarming. 

They develop bacterial agents designed to turn humans into mega roaches. 

Their DNA will be infused with our own. 

We will lose our human minds and find ourselves with only antennae and the desire to serve the Trump, our queen. 

And still, humans flounder. 

We kill ourselves  from within before our enemies can kill us. 

It’s not even a hostile takeover when they finally breach Asia and begin the process of doing the same thing. 

It’s a plea for swift assimilation, for cockroaches merely want to assimilate and eat us. 

But humans?

Humans will do things cockroaches could never do to one another, to members of the same collective hive.

Within the human consciousness, we were desperate. Hungry. Thirsty. Desiring nothing but survival and willing to doom every other member of our race to extinction if it meant living just another day.

Cockroaches share no such selfish desire.

They are one with the hive, and the hive is one of them. 

The hive will live forever, if the individual does its duty, and thus the individual does its duty with eagerness. 

For the good of the hive, for the good of the hive. 

Humans have no hive.

Humans do not see one another as friends, only enemies. 

Humans shall fall.

For the hive. For the hive. 

And who began the real cracking, the devastation, of human unity and reason?

Of human dignity and cohesion, the strands between all of us, the genetic connection between brother and sister? 

His name is Trump. 

He is the cockroach queen. 

He begins with us. 

He’s coming for the entire human race.

Be ready, brothers and sisters.

It’s us or them. 

anonymous asked:

In Germany we have at least 4 1/2 years of law school before we can take the first bar exam and after another 2 years as a junior lawyer (at least that's what the dictionary translates it to) we can "finally" take the second bar which will (hopefully) makes us lawyers. I think law school is probably hell no matter where you go. Nations, former hobbies, if we like cats or dogs: Doesn't matter anymore. We're all united by selfhatred and caffeine addiction. I think that's beautiful.

This sounds like Austria where they’re like no no no put that down you’re not actually a lawyer yet
