It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.
If anyone went, I was the one dressed as Uhura from Episode, Mirror Mirror, walking around with catwoman at Supercon yesterday.
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.
bitches don’t be so full of ourselves and be thankful for people reblogging ur art (and therefore liking it and promoting it) and of course people are entitled to delete the artist comment since it’s their fucking blog and they’ll do the fuck the want with them
LOL I can’t believe how greedy and unthankful some people can be
so since this comment turns out to be real, I’ll say this:
Under your logic, anyone would be “entitled” to punch you in your face if they wanted to and you shouldn’t have a problem with it because it’s their hand and they can do whatever the fuck they want with it. That’s your screwy logic.
Also… Greedy??? Unthankful?????
Who the fuck would be thankful that some asshole decided that their input on their own artwork, that they worked hard on, wasn’t good enough for their blog?????
I don’t want anyone reblogging my art who can’t even respect me enough to leave my commentary where I put it. We put our comments there for it to STAY THERE. REBLOGGING OUR ART DOES NOT MEAN IT NOW BELONGS TO YOU AND YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU PLEASE WITH IT.
What the actual fuck is wrong with you and everyone who reblogged your shitty comment????
Please also note that the length, subject, and relevancy of an artist’s comment do not change this.
Even if you feel the comment is too long— even if you feel the piece can do without it— it is not your place to remove the artist’s comment.
Removing a comment from a piece:
- takes away an artist’s voice
- disembodies an artist from their work
- may abstract needed clarity
- may remove important notes, details, or text that adds to the piece (even if you feel it does not)
- removes an easy link that allows people to find the artist (their username over their comment, that is)
- is straight up disrespectful
Please stop removing comments artists leave on their work.
Canadian cartoonist/illustrator Britt Wilson has gained notice for her wildly imaginative art style, gaining praise from Kate Beaton for her “utter mastery of drawing skill.” With Cat Dad, King of the Goblins she offers a slapstick fantasy about an odd family where two young girls, Miri and Lucy, have a giant lizard as a companion, and a mother with a mysterious job (witch?) has turned their father in a fluffy white cat. When Dad gets rubbed the wrong way, he escapes into a closet inhabited by, it turns out, a race of goblins. When the goblins start worshipping Cat Dad as their king, the kids have to find a way to set things right.
This is brilliant.
