B-but I wanna meet people… PUT A TINY HOLE IN TEXAS AROUND DALLAS COUNTY AND AUSTIN MOST PEOPLE ARE DECENT THERE
A great addition to your garden or back yard. - Bee watering station.
Bees need water just like we do but often times drown in open water. To make a bee watering station you can either do what is shown in the photo above and fill the bowl of a dog/cat watering jug with stones or you can fill a small dish with marbles and add water to that. That way the bees have something to land on!
First post to get this many notes, and I’m so glad it’s this one. ^_^
No fuck bees kill them all
Kill all bees huh? Bees are responsible for pollinating around 80% of agriculture. Bees die, you die. Do research and get over your fears.
bees are so important save the bees
Bees are pretty awesome. I won’t defend yellowjackets, mind.
yellowjackets, i will set on fire. they eat meat and garbage. technically they help by eating crop pests, but they’re so aggressive towards humans and pets that it’s dangerous NOT to kill them when you find a nest near your house.
bees are absolute darlings and essential to human life as well as the environment. they pollinate fruit and vegetables. they make honey — they make more honey than they need, so beekeepers can harvest it without hurting them, it’s like they WANT to share. they can only sting once, it kills them, so they’re very reluctant to do so, and usually you can let them walk on your hands and when you want them to leave just gently blow on them and they’ll go. bees are nothing to be afraid of unless you’re deathly allergic.
you can tell the difference by the presence or absence of fur. if it’s fuzzy, it’s a friend.
bees are fuzzy and they are our friends, help and protect them.
wasps/hornets/yellowjackets are shiny and they hate us, don’t let them nest near your home.
Noo! I get so sad when I see posts like this!
I was ill informed, too when it came to wasps! But darlings I promise they’re important and here’s why:
- Mud Daubers are a sub species of ‘wasp’ that hunt down spiders and feed them to their young. Spiders can range from black windows to a harmless cellar spider, but the point is- you got too many spidders? Start praying for mud daubers.
- Wasps carry yeast in their stomachs! You like wine? Then thank wasps- the babies carry yeast back to grape vines and help boost the grape production!
- They are natures lil’ cleaners. They eat rotting fruit and veggies which can pose health risks to other animals, attract flies and other scavenger pests, and just simply smell bad.
- They’re also pollinators! Just like bees!
Now, this being said- Wasps are very territorial little babies. They want to protect their homes and their life, but wouldn’t you!? Think about it! we’re giant paper-wielding monsters to them that have invisible force fields of death in our giant nest boxes.
By the time we find them they’re already 210% done with every situation, and just wanna be let out!
If you find waspies near your home and you’re allergic, terrified, or have another personal reason they CAN-NOT be there? Then use some all natural repellent, not poison! remember that poison doesn’t just harm the bug you’re directly spraying it at- but birds, other bugs, and sometimes even our neighborhood squirrel, cat, or mouse who comes along to get a tasty (All be it weird) treat!
For example: I’ve heard if you sprinkle cinnamon powder around a nest of bees, wasps or yellow jackets that they DESPISE the smell and will move the nest elsewhere!
Wasps HATE the smell of mint! So get some minty plants going and you’ll be good to go!
Ahh, I didn’t even read the comments, I just automatically reblog the bee watering hole whenever I see it.
Re-reblogging for lilacs comment!
WHY, IT’S A MOTHERFUCKING INTERROBANG.
Not only does it have a sweet-ass name, but it’s a fucking amazing piece of punctuation.
Does your teacher bitch at you for using a “?” and a “!”? Well then, this is the thing for you! YOU JUST PULL THIS BITCH OUT, AND WIPE THE GRIN OFF THAT MOTHER-FUCKER’S FACE. Watch as their mind is blown that you’re using famous punctuation from the NINETEEN SIXTIES.
True. Fucking. Facts. This glorious character was invented by Martin K. Spekter in 1962. That’s right, even its creator had a bad-ass name.
BUT. ALAS. THIS MIND-BLOWING, ELEPHANT ORGASMING PUNCTUATION NEVER GOT TO BE DECLARED “OFFICIAL”. That’s why it doesn’t show up in all your fancy ass computer fonts.
SO YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY‽ I SAY WE BRING BACK THE INTERROBANG. USE IT WHEN YOU CAN. SPREAD THE WORD. RE-BLOG THIS SHIT.
I have been waiting for this since the day I started writing.
I laminated a paper towel
why does this have 31 thousand notes
You made it useless but also prevented it from the end it was predestined for.
But wait this is actually freaking me out though, it raises so many questions about the otherwise incomprehensible meaning of life as a collective whole versus personal sustenance and longevity
Imagine if one day you were given a choice: Become immortal and indestructible for eternity, unable to be harmed by anything ever again, and get to live forever.
However, in order to achieve that you must give up whatever your purpose in life is. Whatever it is that you were always meant to do, what you were supposed to contribute to the overall scheme and future of the life of the universe, your purpose… the whole reason you were even created, even born in the first place. You must give that up. You don’t know what that is. You’ll never know; But, regardless, you say yes.
Perhaps you assume you wouldn’t have made any sort of significant difference anyway. That butterfly effect theory or whatever they call it? Nah, you call bullshit. It doesn’t matter - you don’t matter, at least not to anything outside of your immediate connections - and it’ll all be fine, and you’ll just live forever with minimal (or maybe even no) consequences.
So, yay! You’re now immortal. You’ll never die or get hurt ever again. Wee!
But then, centuries and centuries later (not to mention that by this point you’ve gone through horrible heartbreak and misery and despair because every loved one you ever had, every friend you ever made, ever person you barely got to know, has passed away, died as you lived on long without them, helpless to do anything for them as you watched them perish, unable to ever go with them or ever see them again. But I digress), now, you learn you actually were important in the grand scheme of things. You were supposed to be a key factor in the world’s survival, long ago; but, because of the choice you made (immortality over individual purpose), you were never given the knowledge or awareness or resources or ability to save the world that you were always supposed to obtain, before you unknowingly made the wrongest choice to ever wrong.
Needless to say, you’ve fucked up big time.
The entire universe as we know it is destroyed soon after this horrifying revelation. It implodes, collapses in on itself, essentially forming a massive black hole or something. Stars, nebulae, galaxies, solar systems and planets, worlds and worlds of living people and things, and light-years of time and space and life, all sucked up into absolute, indefinite nothingness.
But you remain.
Just you. Floating amongst, spiraling around, rocketing through, suspended in… nothing. With a feeling of such unbelievable loneliness that your feeble brain can hardly perceive, can’t possibly hope to comprehend. Not only are you the only living thing left, you don’t even have one inanimate object to keep you company. You have literally. Nothing. And you are literally nowhere. I mean, technically, you are now the universe - if it would bring you petty comfort to think about it that way. You. Only you. With nothing, no one, nowhere. Forever. And ever. And ever.
All because you thought you didn’t matter. That you had no real, meaningful purpose. That you could never possibly make a difference.
But you did. And now look what you’ve gotten yourself into, you silly nugget. You’re gonna be pretty bored and lonely for that eternity, huh?
Or maybe it was out of selfishness. Maybe this wasn’t because you felt useless, but because you simply only cared about prolonging your own life and nothing else. Hm.
The moral here? Be selfless, and always know and remember that you matter.
Or else, one day, you might destroy the universe. And be left to suffer, and be tortured horribly and endlessly by the void of nothingness that has consumed you. With no way to escape. Ever.
Other moral because I got sidetracked from my initial point - all things considered, would you choose longevity over purpose? Immortality over meaning?
OR, IDK, MAYBE SOME IDIOT JUST LAMINATED A STUPID PIECE OF PAPER TOWEL FOR NO GOOD REASON
AND MAYBE I SHOULDNT BE LOOKING FOR THE ANSWERS TO THE MEANING OF OUR SHORT, FRAGILE LIVES IN

Write. A. Book.
What if I did write a book
and the pages of that book
were made out of
This fucking website has me thinking about the significance of my life compared to seemingly insignificant household items. I hate this place.
I may talk a big game and I can be the biggest bitch you ever meet and some people I would definitely kick their asses given the chance. But I’ve got a god damned heart of glass. It’s so fucking easy to break and I hate it. That’s probably why I get so bitchy and defensive. But who wouldn’t? When you’ve got fucking glass dust as all that’s left of your heart. Half the time it’s hard to believe people love me. It took over a year to start believing my boyfriend when he told me I was beautiful. I still ignore compliments from most of the population because I don’t think they mean it. I’m so sick of being stepped on that I won’t even talk to people because I can feel it in my heart that they’re just going to end up breaking me more. It doesn’t even end there. My own family likes to take a sledgehammer to my little glass heart now and again. You’re not good enough. You don’t know what you believe in. You’re wrong. You don’t love him. You can’t do that. You can’t have that. You can’t say that. I wish I was the cold hearted bitch that nobody can hurt. But I’m not. I’m the doormat that put armor on but still opens up like an idiot.
No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html
"But womenz are so oppressed! "
You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.
yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy
Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.
quietly scoring out all previous comments because they’re all apparently made by either anti-sj’s/anti-feminists or generally ignorant people
let’s put it this way: this is one of many reasons why we need feminism. We’ll state first that statistically, women are beaten more often than men. But let’s continue. Women are generally considered frailer, weaker, more helpless sex, incapable of doing any sort of damage to a person that isn’t emotional. Meanwhile, men are generally considered dominant in a relationship. If anyone’s to do the beating, it’s expected to be them. It’s even just another masculine thing to do.
when we apply these expectations to a relationship where a woman is domestically assaulting a man, the man isn’t taken seriously because the gender roles we enforce on him dictate that “he should have been able to defend himself”, “he’s a sissy”, “she can’t have hurt him that much” and so on. And then the woman is too often let off because “she can’t have done any real damage”, “female on male violence isn’t serious”, “women can’t be dangerous” and etc.
we need feminism so that all genders can be equal, and equality means that when a man beats a woman, that man should be brought to justice, and vice versa. After 18 assaults, Yasmin Thomas should have been convicted with a significantly harsher sentence and that’s all there really is to it.
‘Any offence at all will be sent back to this court and you will go straight down those steps to prison for at least 12 months.’
SHE SHOULD BE GOING TO PRISON NOW. NOT IF SHE DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. jesus fucking christ.
If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.
But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
Yeah … what up with that?
Maybe if we brought the Supreme Court to one of our protests they would make the cops stop using tear gas.
