EVERY ONE WHO REBLOGS THIS POST BEFORE MIDNIGHT WILL GET 5 ANON QUESTIONS
HOLY CARPET DIEM PLEASE KEEP THIS FROM HAPPENING!!!
This is pretty serious stuff. Bayer might be about to overturn the EC’s decision to ban the pesticides implicated in killing off the bees! If they win this case, it could be truly disastrous for both the bees and our own future. Please share, and please see the SumOfUs link (no affiliation) to make a donation to help the campaign to save the bees.
Early in 2013, the European Food Safety Authority stated that three specific neonicotinoid insecticides (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam) pose an acute risk to honeybees, and the European Commission proposed a two-year ban on them.
This is due to go into effect on Dec 1st – and the ban was introduced because of mounting scientific evidence that these insecticides, produced by Syngenta and Bayer, have been the agents responsible for Colony Collapse Disorder – a major problem threatening both the bees and the safety of our own food supply!
However in a horrifying twist, and despite huge public opposition, Syngenta and Bayer are now suing the European Commission over their “right” to continue to produce the pesticides which have been implicated in the massive die-off of millions of bees. Yes, their “right”. Because as we know, corporations’ sole agenda is to make money. They cannot let a trivial thing like nature get in their way.
These insecticides continue to be produced and used on a vast scale in the USA and in other countries and are huge moneymakers for the chemical corporations…
This threw up a few red flags when some of the links led to wiki pages but I looked up the lawsuit and it seems to be legit. Bayer is trying to lift the ban on pesticides that have been linked to the death of millions of bees in Europe. This is, unquestionably, terrible enough on its own, because bees are amazing little insects and deserve all our love, but if all the bees in the world go extinct, human life as we know it will change drastically. Produce will virtually cease to exist. That is a big freaking deal.
In addition to the donation page listed above, SumOfUs also has a petition going around that is still in need of signatures to help stop this. And it needs to be stopped. We cannot risk losing any more bees.
Bees get a pretty bad rap, but honestly? The scary, stingy things you’re afraid of? Most likely wasps. Bees, particularly honeybees and bumblebees, are just these fluffy little cuddle balls that fly around and pollinate stuff. They won’t sting you unless you’re a direct threat to them, because if they sting you, they’ll die. Don’t be scared of bees. Be scared for bees.
I’ve done as much looking around as I can because I know Tumblr is a cesspool of misinformation, and this looks as legit as it gets. Please tell people, sign the petition, and donate if you can.
And in the meantime, if you’re a gardner, please try to encourage bees to come to your garden. You can use the tips listed here. There’s also some information about different kinds of bees you might run into, in case you’d like to learn more about bees and why they’re wonderful.
Thanks for reading, guys. Please share this.

WHAT EVER YOU DO DONT LOOK AT IT!
I have seen how popular this game has become and I will admit I really don’t know what to say about this game. I have to it right now: I do not hate this game!!!! but I really am tipping on a seesaw weither I should lean towards Capcom or lean towards Keiji Inafune. I didn’t really didn’t get into mega man until after Capcom gained it’s infamous name of Crapcom and after the two mega man games that came out on Wii and Xbox 360 and PS3. The thing is that the game really looks nice and while I won’t criticize the mechanics being familiar toward the original mega man games I want to say that the designs of the main character looks TOO familiar to mega man and and another character who looks familiar to Roll. Really for the most part this game looks awesome and I really like what it’s going for but now I have to say why I’m really conflicted by this game. As we all know Keiji Inafune left Capcom after so many problems and faults and cancelations with Capcom owning Mega man and only doing one good thing with Mega man by putting him in Super Smash Bros U/3DS, the reason I’m conflicted with this game really is that mighty no. 9 may bring the end to Mega Man as Capcom has no reason to continue Mega Man after Mighty No. 9 is released on the consoles and that really worries me that the Mega Man series will be truly be dead because of Mighty No. 9 and if Keiji tries to pick up the pieces it also worries me that Capcom will go after him for trying to bring back his series. Really that’s all that worries me and if I had the money I’d help donate to him to his kickstarter page!
