WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING

i’M CRYING

NO

why

Because they are swarming! ^_^
Hello friends, I’m going to tell you some cool stuff about bees and why you shouldn’t be afraid of them!
See, there is a lot of misplaced fear over our fuzzy pollinating buddies. Many folks think they are mean and dangerous, but bees are very good little friends. The little, kind bee should not be mistaken for their evil look a likes, such as Hornets Yellow Jackets and Wasps, which are evil and should be hated like the beasts they are. Bees are docile by nature, and are not a threat to anyone who’s not allergic to them.
These bees are Swarming, which despite it’s scary sounding name, is not a dangerous time to be around bees. This time is the safest time to be around bees because they couldn’t give a hoot about you. These bees are gathering themselves together in order to go as a whole colony to find a new home. The gif is showing how bees don’t mind the outside world at this point in a swarm. The bees probably feel like a tickle on his hand. ^-^
Here’s some cool facts about bees!
-Bees are the BEST pollinators in the world! better than butterflies, or humming birds.
-Bees in a colony are all females. The males of the species look totes different and are called drones.
-Bees are totally different from Yellow Jackets, Hornets, and Wasps. They are not even close relatives in the insect kingdom!
-“Africanized” Bees are of no threat to anyone north of the New Mexico, and they barely pose a risk there! They are more territorial than some other species of bees, but not as bad as wasps.
-Many crops rely on bees.
-Bees will often die after stinging someone. Bees know this, and thus will do much to avoid stinging you. Hate to say it buddy, but you’re not worth their time.
-Honey, in it’s natural state, is a vitamin rich superfood! It can help with everything from icky feelings, to gross hair.
-Bees are threatened in many places by parasites, people, and misinformation. Do your part to help the bees and plant some flowers.

  • Professor :

    You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?

  • Student :

    Yes, sir.

  • Professor:

    So, you believe in GOD?

  • Student :

    Absolutely, sir.

  • Professor :

    Is GOD good?

  • Student :

    Sure.

  • Professor:

    Is GOD all powerful?

  • Student :

    Yes.

  • Professor:

    My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

  • (Student was silent.)

  • Professor:

    You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?

  • Student :

    Yes.

  • Professor:

    Is satan good?

  • Student :

    No.

  • Professor:

    Where does satan come from?

  • Student :

    From … GOD …

  • Professor:

    That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

  • Student :

    Yes.

  • Professor:

    Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

  • Student :

    Yes

  • Professor:

    So who created evil ?

  • (Student did not answer.)

  • Professor:

    Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

  • Student :

    Yes, sir.

  • Professor:

    So, who created them ?

  • (Student had no answer.)

  • Professor:

    Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

  • Student :

    No, sir.

  • Professor:

    Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

  • Student :

    No , sir.

  • Professor:

    Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smell your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

  • Student :

    No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

  • Professor:

    Yet you still believe in Him?

  • Student :

    Yes.

  • Professor :

    According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

  • Student :

    Nothing. I only have my faith.

  • Professor:

    Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

  • Student :

    Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

  • Professor:

    Yes.

  • Student :

    And is there such a thing as cold?

  • Professor:

    Yes.

  • Student :

    No, sir. There isn’t.

  • (The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.)

  • Student :

    Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

  • (There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

  • Student :

    What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

  • Professor:

    Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

  • Student :

    You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

  • Professor:

    So what is the point you are making, young man?

  • Student :

    Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

  • Professor:

    Flawed ? Can you explain how?

  • Student :

    Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

  • Professor:

    If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

  • Student :

    Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

  • (The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

  • Student :

    Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

  • (The class was in uproar.)

  • Student :

    Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

  • (The class broke out into laughter.)

  • Student :

    Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

  • (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

  • Professor:

    I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

  • Student :

    That is it sir… Exactly ! The link between man and GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

  • That student was Albert Einstein.

It’s simple math.

It takes about 50 times more resources to grow grain, feed it to a cow, and then eat the cow than it does to just feed the grain to a human (for example, it takes about 100,000 liters of water to get 1 kilogram of beef, versus about 2,000 liters to get 1 kilogram of soybeans or rice). You lose 90 percent of the calories that grow from the ground if you pass them through a cow first. And don’t shoot the messenger here — I’m no vegetarian. I’ve eaten so much meat that my body is practically made of the stuff. But if you saw somebody routinely take one bite of their food and then toss the rest in the trash, you’d think they were an asshole (“Dude, there’s starving people in the world!”). Well, that’s what you’re doing when you insist on converting your food into steak just to make it taste better. You’re throwing 90 percent of it away, in the form of cow shit.

But then we have global warming — this is almost never brought up as one of the causes, but the reality is that somewhere between 15 and 20 percent of carbon emissions come from meat production, and beef is by far the worst offender.

No but guys, GUYS, we need to talk about how important this scene is.  Because the commonly accepted lore about unicorns is that they are so good and pure that they’ll only appear to young virginal girls.  Because Molly Grue is a middle-aged woman who has been living with bandits for most of her life and is as far from innocent and virginal as you’re likely to get.  Because she’s so angry that this creature, embodying everything that society tells her she’s lost, everything she’s thrown away through her own choices, is here now when all that The Unicorn represents is long since behind her.  Because she knows, in a way that only someone who’s been steeped in an oppressive system her entire life can ever know, that she’s missed her chance and doesn’t deserve to be seeing a unicorn now.

And you know what?  The Unicorn doesn’t give two fucks about her virginity, about her supposed loss of innocence and purity.  She’s not repelled by Molly being older, being experienced, being a full human person.  None of that has ever mattered to unicorns, only to the people telling stories about them.  Not only does she step in to physically comfort her here, but before long this bandit’s wife becomes her friend, closer to her in most ways than Schmendrick.

This story is fucking revolutionary, you guys, and I just have a lot of feelings about it.

I heard Peter S. Beagle speak about this scene at a convention once. He said he just kept writing and writing into the scene and suddenly here was this powerful, moving dialogue which came out very strong and natural, flowing directly from inspiration.

He said it was one of those moments when “the writer just gets really lucky.”
