It seems like everyone is getting into relationships or dating or whatever the fuck. I know it’s that time of year, but goddamnit. I haven’t been able to keep a girlfriend for longer than a month in 7 years. YEARS.
So please, knock it off everyone. Go be single for a while, then maybe you will deserve that piece of fuck.
People are so fucked up, and so am I. But at lease I recognize it and try to steer myself in the right direction.
That direction often leads to a lonely place, away from all of you people who treat me like garbage, who don’t listen to a word I say.
I head towards the beacon of light, and find fellow travelers along the way, uniting in our search, leaving you all behind.
THE WORLD I SEE
by L. QUILES
Ohhhhh I’m a piece of shit, yes a terrible piece of shit.
Everything I do is wrong. Unless it’s comics.
It’s no wonder I have so few friends.
Yes, that is a photo of a man’s nake buttocks on my credit card payment.
This September, Finland will release its autumn stamp series which includes the artwork of Touko Laaksonen — better known as pseudonym Tom of Finland — in a release that corresponds with the Postal Museum’s exhibition “Sealed with a Secret — Correspondence of Tom of Finland.”
The drawings chosen for the postage represent Finland’s style in all his iconic glory: homoerotic masculinity, complete with bulging muscles — among other things — bare asses and uniforms. Finland’s service as a second lieutenant in WWII undeniably influenced his use of uniforms in his art work.
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.
Guys, if all the bees died we’d have FOUR YEARS to live.
A few pages from The Fatal Marksman: Act II, just to get you excited. Act II will be finished in May (possibly in time for TCAF, but I’m not making promises!)
