The World's First Influential Bee Is An Activist For The Preservation Of Its SpeciesMeet B, the world’s first insect influencer that’s taking Instagram by storm.

The busy bee posts photos of herself travelling the world, channelling trends, and relaxing by luxury hotel pools. But B is looking for more than just a few “likes,” the tiny, fuzzy social media influencer was created by Fondation de France to help raise funds to save the bees.

“I want to please brands around the world to raise money to save bees, many of which disappear every year,” says B. “I need you: the more followers I have on Instagram, the more interested brands are and the more money I will collect.”

Agriculture is the main cause of the disappearance of bees, with 24% dying in Europe each year. As pollinators, bees play a vital role in our global food system. In fact, they’re to thank for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Without them, food would be scarce, and many ecosystems would begin to die out.

B explains, “Protecting bees means protecting the planet, but also humankind.”

Bees were declared the most important living being on the planet at the 2019 meeting of the Royal Geographical Society of London and we all depend on them.

Let’s protect our bees!!

Not a day goes by without a news story about how waste finds its way into our beautiful oceans. With each such story, however, more and more efforts are dedicated to turning the tide on water pollution.

Today, conservationists estimate that the waste count is in the trillions, amounting to over 260,000 tons of plastic waste alone roaming wild in the oceans. Not only do the different kinds of plastics and paint pollute the waters themselves, but are also hazardous to ocean life that swallows or gets caught in them.

This is, however, a feel-good story that serves as an example (and a reminder!) of how we ought to take care of our ocean life. A video surfaced that shows how scuba divers in Lembeh, Indonesia are convincing a baby veined octopus to switch “homes” from a transparent plastic cup to a couple of seashells.

Millions od years from now, the octopeople will havepassed down the stories of the humans and how they helped one of their ancestors find shelter when needed it most.

Now, this is a rare case when Disney’s live-action version of a beloved animated film is actually better than the original.  While in Bambi, we get the sads when the bastard hunter kills his mom, here we see a happier story.

The deer savior, Chloe Dorsey, told the tale on her Instagram, writing that she was on her morning run in Stone Mountain Park, near Atlanta, GA, when she came across a stuck deer, seen above doing the position I do often.

Chloe stopped everything and immediately went to help. Chloe helped get the deer out, and after running free for a bit, the deer got trapped in another fence.

Chloe, being the modern-day Artemis that she is, decided to help the stuck deer again, and gave us some A+++ commentary while making her way to the doe who do’h’d herself.

“Bitch, you done got stuck again? Oh hell naw. This girl. I swear. This girl here. What is wrong with this girl? You need to learn how to jump, boo. Girl, what is going to happen when I’m not here?! Why didn’t you jump? Girl! And, y’all just sitting around looking, not showing her how to jump. Jesus! Girl, why didn’t you jump? You gonna jump next time.  I’m going to help you one more time.”

I know Chloe said that this is the last time she saves that deer, but I hope not. I need an entire series, because this movie has everything: riveting performances, excellent dialogue, intrigue, comedy, action, magnificent cinematography, and an extremely artistic, G-rated Blair Witch-type ending. Much better than whatever is playing out there.

Although today is Labour Day and some of us worked, nobody worked as hard as Daisy the Golden Retriever who is more annoying and needier than me in a relationship.

Daisy’s human writes that she’s typically as high maintenance and emotionally crazy as my cousin after her third glass of wine at a family gathering, but she really turns it up whenever the pussy of the house gets more attention than her.

“My dog Daisy is extremely high maintenance and needy. When I give too much attention to my cat, this is her reaction. Every single time.”

Never mind that Daisy’s human is cruelly torturing her by not showing her some love too, but maybe something else is going on here. Maybe Daisy knows that the cat is secretly plotting the family’s demise and is trying to warn their asses!

If it’s the latter, it’s obviously not working and Daisy is playing right into that evil cat’s plot. What a diabolical mastermind that pussy is.

manta ray

A well-known, approximately 30-year-old massive Manta Ray in Western Australia’s Ningaloo Reef known as Freckles surprised divers when she approached them and paused, appearing to ask for help.

Divers Jake Wilton and Monty Halls noticed that the ray had fishhooks embedded under one of its eyes. The patient ray seemed to understand that the divers could help remove them. After several tries, they did.

Said Wilton to BBC News: “I went down for a dive [to check up on her] and she stopped and hung around for about 30 seconds above me – it was pretty wild. They have self-awareness and can recognize individual manta rays, so she could have recognized me.”

It’s no secret that humans are a vicious virus that is killing our planet.

However, this video is not only proof that sea creatures feel pain/discomfort from hooks that penetrate their bodies. It shows as well that there is still some humans that care for other living creatures, and therefore our planet.

Since my blog is 20% intellectual and 80% hooker, the title is appropriate. 

This video is from 2017, which is approximately 600 years in internet time, but HuffPo just brought it to my attention, and honestly, the phrase “too old” doesn’t apply to an extremely important sports video like this one.

It’s not known where this is or when it was exactly filmed, but details like that don’t matter, because the only thing that matters is that Ben is the ruler of golf courses everywhere and isn’t about to let your ball drop in the hole on his watch.

Every time the golfer tries to put a ball in the hole, Ben gets on that ball like a thirsty gay in a dark room. A golfer hasn’t been done in by pussy this hard since that cheating mega slut Tiger Woods passed his peen to every poon imaginable, which cost him a chunk of his fortune.

 
Kitties should now be mandatory at all golf courses.

Otherwise SNOREFEST!
