Day_Old_Dutchie: kid_icarus: I think we should start now figuring out a honey substitute for our breakfast cereals. Just in case.

/cannot have just 'Nut Cheerios'

Most 'honey' and 'maple syrup' these days is HFCS+flavorings.


I read the ingredients on a packet of KFC "honey sauce" last night. High fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, fructose, honey flavor.

Ever notice how bees love mountain dew? I always wondered what honey made from mountain dew tastes like. I bet its pretty great.

Ima4nic8or: Clearly its not A since global warming is a hoax. B, perhaps, but why get your panties in a bunch about it? Its just nature in action. C: my only concern here is the city invading the homeowners property. The hive of bees is a petty concern. There are plenty more where they came from.

The city seems to be talking out both sides of its face: "...the tree is in a public right of way.."...but...."its your tree"...but..."we have the right to fark with your tree".. So much for a clear delineation of rights and responsibilities. I would say if the tree is in the homeowners yard, its theirs. They can chop it down, let it grow as big as they want, or fill it with 5000 bees. Its their business, not mine or anyone else's. If, on the other hand, it is on city property then the city can do as they see fit. Clear and easy.


Clearly A: You live in your mom's basement where it's always the same temperature... B: You have no idea what a pollinator is and don't care because cheese doodles and hot dogs don't need them and C: Are 12.

It's Oregon, and oddly enough, just down the street, here in Hillsboro.

Two givens: The 'public employees" are union democrats, and as such reside on the Left side of the Bell curve, The Other is that they are grossly overpaid.

In sum, we should be glad they didn't hit a pre-school.

It is not the city's place to imply ownership of the tree: it's "the tree". Always use the indefinite article.

I knew a guy with the opposite problem; seems he had a wasp nest in his shed, and wanted to get rid of it. Instead of doing what a normal person would and spraying it with wasp spray from 15 feet away, he decides they're bees. He had heard at some point that smoke pacifies bees, so he makes a smudgepot out of a soup pot and dampish paper. I have no idea what he intended to do after the "bees" were pacified, but I just went indoors. He got his son to place and light the smudgepot as he did other things. After a few moments, I began to hear screams outside, with the guy shouting "is anything happening?" and the son saying "hell yes! They're farking pissed off!" No one could go near the shed for awhile. That wasp nest may still be there.

I've gotten stung by a honeybee once. That was when I was five years old and picked him up in my hand, squeezing him a bit, not knowing any better. Now I love those little guys and gals.

Wasps however go out of their way to mess you up. Instant death for them :) Female mosquitoes too, but I haven't seen them around in a few years.

LL316: JonnyG: Well, to be fair, it's actually all three and more.

Bees should be protected. It should be illegal to kill bees under any circumstances.

I'll kill a wasp or yellow jacket any time I darn well please. And honey bees will be happy I did.


If it flies and looks like it might sting me, it's getting killed.

[www.examiner.com image 400x600]

are your pages of guns and ammo stuck together?

You're absolutely right. The media has NEVER deliberately confused every goddamn semi-automatic rifle with an "assault weapon." He just pulled that right out of his ass.

the fark does that have to do with bees? oh boohoohoo the media gets the name of the gun wrong, let's just like it city workers confuse bees from wasps? those poor guns. I guess i see his point i apologise, i didn't realise that the AK-47 was so sensitive about other people getting to use it's name.

You're an idiot. So a comment can't be about anything not directly related to bees, and because I post a gun image you assume I'm a gun owner? Look out, I'm about to post a picture of Superman, so I must be a super hero.

It's Saturday morning, way too early for you to bring your fist of rage out. Can you even have a relaxing morning?

That is not superman, that is christopher Reeves. Are you part of the anti-comic book cabal? It is people like you that freely accept the media's portrayal of hard working american writers' characters as a shell of what they really are in movie adaptations. I don't think anyone can relax this morning now.

hmm, that was a wreck of a sentence, But someone really should set up some kind of charity fun and have sally struthers come on. "Everyday in America reporters across the nation are offending the AK47 by using it's name for other weapons, Your donation of 10 dollars will get each rifle 2 years of therapy so it can go on to live a normal productive life before its word was shattered when the AR-15 in a novermber 3rd, 2011 AP news article was mistakenly called an AK-47"
Have various shots of guns sitting in the cabinets all dusty, not having the will to be fired knowing that all of their hard work will go to waste when a simple m-16 will get the glory while the ak-47 remains hidden inside a wooden prison. Maybe they can use the same director and writers from those depressing pet ads.

But for now remember farkers.. we can stop the plight of the AK-47 and demand that city workers can tell bees from yellow jackets.
