Glitches in the matrix.
I’m freaking out
Random funny things I find and post/reblog.
If you like video-games check out my gaming blog!!
i just reblogged this but like holy shit imagine:
the year is 2049. The world had succumb to war and violence and is now a deserted wasteland, the survivors drifting between howling moors that still get rain, and deserts that replaced cities.
You are stumbling through the wasteland, tattered backpack slung over your shoulder, a purple bandana covering your face. You had just escaped the storm passing through, but the sound of the howling moors was ringing in your ears. They were close. Out there. Somewhere. But you were in the desert.
It was starting to get late as you stumbled across an abandoned shack. It was tilted by the wind, leaning ever so slightly to the left. A large antenna stuck out awkwardly jutting in different directions. Must be a radio wire, you thought. Every once and a while someone would broadcast a message. But mostly, the wires intercepted old messages, played over the sounds of long forgotten instruments.
It appeared whoever inhabited the shack had thrown little boxes, amplifiers to play the radio- you remembered, outside, circling the shack. You stood there, tracing the wires with your eyes. It was getting late. You did not want to be caught in the winds and rain, if it passed through. You could hear it on the horizon, approaching. You would stay here.
As you begin to open the door, you hear it. A small crackle as the old melodic transmission begins. Your eyes fall on a small, degraded radio box, covered in more of this pale sand.
"We’re no strangers to love~"
Not this one again.
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.
HOW IS THIS THE FIRST TIME I’VE SEEN THIS IT’S ALMOST AT 10 MILLION WTF
Yes let’s do it for him.
Holy crap the notes!?
This only happened yesterday and it’s already got over 50K notes…
Finally humans with humanity
A little information for ya’ll, this man fell in between the carriage and platform and was freed less than ten minutes later.
When he fell employees of Transperth (Australia) were meters away and were able to signal the driver so he would not just take off and rip the guys leg off.
The staff motioned everyone on the platform to push the carriage in a tear worthy moment of people power
The guy who fell wasn’t hurt and got on the next fucking train so he could go to work.
And if that isn’t the tightest shit you ever heard get the fuck out of my face.
I love this and I am even happier because I found one girl person contributing to this tear jerker moment.
Sorry for the language above but this is freakin awesome.
