There have been huge leaps in HIV research in just the last couple years and one new technique for killing the virus is made from bee venom. Researchers have made nanoparticles, laced them with bee poison and unleashed them like a biblical plague on HIV to pretty good effect.
Multi-colored honey might sound interesting, but for French beekeepers living near an M&M plant, it’s a huge disaster. M&M has since said they would better control their rainbow-colored waste products, but hey… blue honey!
The infection is as grim as it sounds: “Zombie bees” have a parasite that causes them to fly at night and lurch around erratically until they die.
It’s now officially summer up here in the Best Hemisphere, and summer means heat and sweat. For urban sweat bees, this heat means a lot of people walking around from which the bees can land, usually unnoticed and lick your salty sweat and maybe even drink your salty tears. You could even have a bee licking you RIGHT NOW.
Life is a bitch, and animals have devised millions of ways to kill each other and an equal number of ways to avoid getting killed. For Japanes honey bees, their method of defense against the much larger and sting proof giant hornets is to surround the predators in an overwhelming bee ball that overheats the hornets.
For years, scientists in both North America have been trying to figure out what has been killing off bees. Environmental changes? Pollution? Aliens? The actual answer however, could be more sinister: Flies that have learned they can attack the bees, turning them into ZOMBEES by laying eggs in their body. The bees then leave the colony, going on a flight of the living dead, where the eggs hatch and look for more bees.
Bees are awesome and honey is fucking amazing, but when you’re in an urban environment, you really don’t have any good place for bees even if you wanted them. Phillips’ urban beehive concept would however give bees a place to spit up their bee spit and give you fresh honey, as long as you don’t fuck it up and release angry bees into your apartment.
When you need to rid your house of bees, you can call a beekeeper, you can scream like a little girl, or you can do what Troy did. Troy made himself an awesome set of anti-bee armor with household items and duct tape and then pounded enough liquid courage to give him the fortitude to walk straight into the bee’s lair with a vacuum cleaner and… no more bees. Troy, you are a man, a beast and a gentleman. Statues should be erected in your honor and hymns should be sung.
So about all those missing bees? According to Wikileaks, the EPA killed them and forgot to tell anyone
So a year or so ago, the environmental story that got every hippie from the Keys to the Aleutians up in arms was the alarming drop in the number of honeybees in the US. Everyone seemed to have a different idea of what might be causing it— electromagnetic radiation, the hole in the ozone layer, global warming. But as it turns out that in a recently leaked Wikileaks document, the culprit was the EPA. Apparently the EPA had approved the widespread use of a pesticide that it knew was highly toxic to bees and was just like “Ah, fuck it.”
