If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Quick mention of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit group doing a LOT of good work for bees and other pollinators, among others.
Guys, if all the bees died we’d have FOUR YEARS to live.
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
It’s a nice idea and all but no, no it is not this easy and this simple to just up and do what you enjoy doing and survive off it. Even the “making way more money doing what you hate” doesn’t actually make it all that easy to keep a roof over your head.
Unless you live with your parents that “warm home” is gonna be at least $700 a month counting minimal utility usage and food probably another 200 if you’re living off really unhealthy junk.
And if it was so easy to just go start a store or a business there wouldn’t be so many people struggling regardless of their SUPERB fucking talent and skill, namely most of the people I know on the internet.
This is a really sweet comic but a really well meaning person but it’s so unrealistic that it serves more as a painful reminder of reality’s harshness.
This whole ‘do what you want as if money was no object’ is such a privileged point of view. Sorry, but money IS an object.
And that’s also not counting people who literally cannot disobey their parents because they’re unemployed or trying to find work and their parents are the ones supplying their food and the roof over their head. And it’s also not counting college students and graduates who are drowning in relentless debt and facing complete destitution just to pay for their education since you need a fucking degree to get any sort of well-paying job nowadays.
Money may not buy YOUR definition of happiness but god damn, ninety-thousand dollars that I’ll probably never earn in my entire life falling into my lap would solve practically all of my problems and lift a whole ton of stress off my shoulders. Money fucking matters in this society. It really, REALLY fucking matters.didn’t even rly read the comments but this comic is truly the epitome of white people logic
not to mention people whose disabilities prevent them from ~chasing their dreams~
Why can’t I see the person I love more often? I’d sure as hell like to, but it’s a matter of money keeping us apart because we live far apart. And whenever the time came to tie the knot, guess what? We’d have to move to a place that would allow us to marry, and moving also requires money!
I swear, this comic is really kind of disgustingly forgetful of so many minorities and underprivileged folks and people who are utterly unable to get a job that they both love + pays well and wow I could just go on forever here.
this is the most privileged comic i have ever read. this person obviously did not graduate school with a degree in their favorite thing before writing this.
I think instead of “Blindly follow your passions disregarding money and all other objectives and ways society unfortunately works,” a better message would have been “Don’t lose sight of your passions and keep them in your life somehow no matter what shitty things life throws at you” because at least that one is also positive but also possible to do for many more people
chirin no suzo is so good go watch it
"Rather obscure outside of Japan, Chirin no Suzu (The Ringing Bell of Chirin), is one of the most depressing but brutality honest ‘children’s films’ out there. Despite that it is only 47 minutes long, a single viewing of Chirin is sure to stay ingrained in your brain long after being watched due to its extreme mood whiplash and universal themes of revenge and loss of innocence. The film starts out a lot like many other typical family movies. The movie is about a young lamb named Chirin who is very curious but naive about the world. He is given a bell to wear around his neck to ensure that he does not wonder too far from home. Chirin’s mother warns him not to go beyond the pasture gate because a fearsome wolf lives beyond it. However, Chirin barely listens and goes off to play with a rabbit."
