so I was thinking that mark ruffalo sounds a lot like mark buffalo, and then i decided that i obviously wasn’t going to be the only one who thought about this. so i typed ‘ruffalo the buffalo’ into google images and i found these…
i don’t know why but it made me happy
I don’t know why but it makes me happy too.
An extra bonus! Kiyoko probably won’t be printed for sale, but she might make an appearance as a bonus for people who get the whole set. It’s kind of nice to see them all together.
Now come join my prayer circle for Season 2.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
- Provide a home for the bees
- Keep that home warm in the winter
- Keep the bees well fed, negating the need for honey, which the bees would make anyways
- Still do not take all the honey, just in case
- Protect the bees from predators
- Monitor the hives for any signs of the parasites, diseases, etc. that cause colony collapse disorder
- Provide a valuable and reliable source of pollination for plants in the area, both wild and crops
- Help keep the local ecosystem healthy
- Is one of the healthiest things you can eat
- Is able to keep for a EXTREMELY long time (Millennia even), making it more valuable than many perishable foods without being full of preservatives
- Can be used to soothe sore throats, nauseau, etc.
- Has been eaten by humans since at least Ancient Egypt (We’ve found STILL EDIBLE honey in tombs)
- Is a great tool in cooking, adding sweetness without raising the sugar content much
- Is a staple food in many people’s diets
Honey is amazing you can put it on or in pretty much everything I goddamn love it and you should too.
Just another example of vegans putting animal life over humans. Well, unless it has to do with feeding their meat-eating pet. Then they severely fuck up their animal while whining about the bees.
Posting for the great info on bees :)
