in 2010 this was my motto.
Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!
Reblogging for my bee brethren!

Okay but the add said per 100 calories not per 100 grams. There are less calories in 100 grams of broccoli than in 100 grams of steak. So in reality “100 calories of broiled beef, top sirloin steak has exactly 11.08 grams of protein and 100 calories of chopped, raw broccoli has exactly 8.29.”
just a reminder

I didn’t want to talk about this because it’s so unlike me to bring up subjects like this, I like to keep the peace, but right now I feel like hulk smashing a child’s birthday cake.
I didn’t want to give it any more exposure than it already has, but for people who have watched…
Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium.
How screwed up are people to boo at this?
Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.
how is sport more important than the lives of women?
like honestly baffling
jesus I hate the fuckshit culture that would preserve the fucking sports careers of two no shit athletes than the safety and dignity of a woman
So, I got to go to the Midwest Clinic to hear my high school band perform since I was in the ensemble on the audition tape. Traditionally, if the composer is still alive, they’ll go and listen to their piece be performed. Since the group played Redline Tango, John Mackey went. Before the performance started, I told my friends that we were going to go meet him.
So after they finish, we go up to him. and there’s already a crowd. My friends and I set up a system for taking the picture and having the picture taken. While I was waiting my turn, I gave my iPod to my friend, and he was holding it up, so naturally I made a face. Then, I met Mr. Mackey, fangirled over him, thanked him for the masterpiece that is Aurora Awakes, and took a nice picture. It wasn’t until the next day that I saw the picture (this picture).
Pretty much puts my fangirling into 1 picture. I can’t even right now.
This is by far my favorite picture of John Mackey and a starstruck band student. I was too much of a pansy to even say hi to him when we played Aurora Awakes in region band for UIL, and I didn’t know how big of a deal he was then.
At least I get to meet him next semester! XD

In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”
During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:
The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.
Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career
Eartha Kitt has always been one of my personal heroes.
