    Bee Movie is bad and horrible

    Getting honey from hives kills bees and many commercial beekeepers and honey producers are effectively as bad as factory farmers.

    Smaller, local apiaries are better, but there is still bee death

    Those external flow honey collecting things are a pain to clean and don't work very long, and you're still taking the bee's winter food

    I can see why vegans avoid honey, even if I didn't as a vegan

    I plan to keep bees.

    I want honey and the world needs bees to pollinate so I figured it's a win/win.

    I mean how do you get honey without killing bees?

    There are no challenges that really need help, it's just annoying to forget to be mindful.

    I have post-it notes and stickers. Completely serious.

    On my computer, in my notebooks, anything I see / use regularly (all over my room and Nargirl's room).

    I have no memory, so notes and lists and reminders to myself are imperative.

    Apparently I'm supposed to visit my mom this weekend! Thankfully Nargirl remembers this stuff, because I don't plan more than 4 hours ahead at any given time.

    I'm pretty excited about lunch.

    I also have a post it note

    Jk jk

    Last night I spent 7 hours assembling most of the IKEA furniture we got on our last trip only to find out the mattress we have doesn't actually fit the bed that well so we need a new one

    Luckily I've got DINK money rn but it's still annoying cause I've got to fly to the Carolinas for a wedding next month and two plane tickets are expensive

    Idgaf what you do, but collecting honey necessarily invokes bee death

    the more things i offload to external systems like calendars and task systems and paper the better my brain is

    the problem is that that is a process that takes work and i often don't keep up with it

    Facebook is terrible. I am using it a bit to communicate with the small progressive group I found here in MS I find the interface abhorrent.

    Twitter is addictive. I'm taking a break from news after the media decided to take trump back like an abusive stepdad because he behaved for an hour. It's hard not loading up twitter.

    Because when something happens, you instantly know on twitter. By the time a news site has a headline that shit is old news.

    Paying attention to things while simultaneously not caring?

    I've actually been trying to do mindfulness meditation where you let thoughts come through your head and then just sort of detach and examine the thoughts as thoughts and it makes no fucking sense how this is supposed to work.

    much much much repetition and practice
    guided meditation helps

    is interesting to have tried acid after having practiced meditation a lot because you're like oh that's that state, that makes sense

    I've done acid previously, but not post.

    Hmmm.

    Teleworking on Thursday is weird. I have a teleconference at 10:30 as one of my cool coworkers just came back today from maternity leave. Normally I would be there but I had to go in on Monday because of a dumb all hands.

    Need to call my investing folks because they did my 1099-R wrong it seems from my withdraw. So I can finish my damn taxes. Stupid complications.

    I don't think "vegan stance" is really a thing, though obviously you can find areas of mass agreement. I think there are clusters of behaviors.

    I mean, the normal hive setup is probable the best you'll do, you just have to go slowly and carefully when removing frames, uncapping the comb, and doing the extractions. Most deaths happen when they get crushed as you put frames back or they drown in the honey you extracted

    I have not had good interactions with vegans, especially in my time in Tempe.

    I know it's a prejudiced viewpoint (especially since I've met and am friends with a lot of vegans now), but damn man getting a hamburger smacked out of your hand in a public place really kinda makes you dickish towards the entire idea in general.

    Also if you're concerned about pollination it's important to realize that honey bees only really pollinate our CROPS, and aren't necessary for a functional North American ecosystem. There are legions of other bees that pollinate native plants, along with other insects, and the better way to keep that going is to increase planting of native flora

    Ofc if you are doing small scale agriculture then yeah bees are great because all our food crops are imported just like honey bees

    Shive

    In most modern taxonomy, termites ARE cockroaches. Isoptera doesn't exist, functionally anymore.

    I asked one of the foremost experts of my generation on cockroach taxonomy the following question at the international meeting: " Listen, man, is there any evidence at all that we can recover isoptera, or is Misof off their rocker?" And dude was like "you're really gonna have to get over that one. Isoptera is dead and it isn't coming back."
