Interesting factoid:

I remember hearing that the honeybee population issue is one of the political issues with the most agreement across the different sides of the political spectrum.

Found the source:( the factoid is true at least in the environmental realm) http://cdn.yougov.com/cumulus_uploads/inlineimage/2014-06-26/BeePartisanship.jpg

Because it's a tremendous bad thing for them to have population declines. Would seriously fuck a lot of agriculture not to mention the environment as a whole. I'm considering starting a hive since I have a pretty sizeable yard and there is a bee keeper that lives a few houses down.

Looks that way, usually boys don't have the attention span to do the systematic destruction like the pictures show. (I could see them busting up one or two then getting bored).

It would very much set in motion a chain of events that would royally fuck humanity as a whole over. Someone would be very dedicated to do such a thing only to never see the long term fruits of their labor. But then again, some people just want to watch the world burn right.

WTF. It happened again in California.

I'm glad they didn't blame it on climate change this time.
