European honeybees have no innate defense against the hornets, which can rapidly destroy their colonies. Although a handful of Asian giant hornets can easily defeat the uncoordinated defenses of a honeybee colony, the Japanese honeybee has an effective strategy. When a hornet scout locates and approaches a Japanese honeybee hive, she emits specific pheromonal hunting signals. When the Japanese honeybees detect these pheromones, a hundred or so gather near the entrance of the nest and set up a trap, keeping the entrance open. This permits the hornet to enter the hive. As the hornet enters, a mob of hundreds of bees surrounds it in a ball, completely covering it and preventing it from reacting effectively. The bees violently vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold conditions. This raises the temperature in the ball to the critical temperature of 46 °C (115 °F). In addition, the exertions of the honeybees raise the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the ball. At that concentration of CO2, they can tolerate up to 50 °C (122 °F), but the hornet cannot survive the combination of high a temperature and high carbon dioxide level. Some bees do die along with the intruder, much as happens when they attack other intruders with their stings, but by killing the hornet scout, they prevent it from summoning reinforcements that would wipe out the entire colony.

here it is, the most relatable onion article






















only on tumblr can someone with a human pet fetish give 19th century monarch style political hot takes

hey hi what the fuck does this say i literally can’t understand any of it it’s like you just strung a bunch of random words together

Some innocent statements of mine were taken out of context and widely distributed.

@comcastkills is referencing that fact in a futile gambit to discredit me.

Note the absence of any word “fetish”.

why else would you want a human pet what the f

Their easier to house-train.

They can eat a broader range of foods (not obligate Carnivores like cats and dogs).

They aren’t banned from restaurants.

They don’t shed on the carpet.

Lots of reasons.

#when will this man die….

When the last star falls silent.

When the void is as cold and empty as the hearts of my detractors

When all is dust beneath the uncaring gaze of entropy.

When the lie of existence is laid bare.

When there is nothing at all which dares to pretend that it is real.

When I am truly alone.

perhaps not even then…

It’s okay dude, you can admit it’s a fetish.

I would prefer not to.

I have a traingirl fetish and I’m perfectly open about it. The stigma around unusual fets need to end. People need to stop using our fets against us in arguments!

I don’t mean to be intrusive, but does that extend to older steam trains, or only to modern diesel/electric trains?

Modern trains, but if an anthro steam train girl was well executed I’m sure I’d welcome her with open arms.

Thanks for sharing that.


Yes, you are.

So am I.

So is everyone else.

You aren’t special.

damn human pet dude dropping facts


this is the legendary post. if you look at it directly, you will die instantly. i can confirm, i’m typing this from my grave.

The train trigger guy… trying to help the monarch human pet guy come to terms with having a fetish… I’m. I need a moment

Tumblr: *rolls out “best stuff first”*

My blog:

on the one hand this is a joke post because lol i have never made a good post in my life, but also, if i hadn’t made the connection between this update and my sudden nosedive in activity, i would have been really fucking discouraged about all the shit i’ve been working on lately. i guarantee there are people on tumblr right now who haven’t made that connection, and who are trying to figure out why suddenly no one likes anything they’ve made. and that fucking sucks.

Reminder to go into your settings and turn off ‘Best Stuff First’ because my activity’s tanked a couple days ago for no reason so this stuff IS happening.

You WILL miss content with that setting on.

i ain’t joking when i say that my activity looks JUST like this too and i wasn’t sure why

I can only find the option on the app under Settings > Dashboard Preferences.

To support content creators do us a favour and turn off “Best stuff first”. Open the tumblr app (Android or iOs) and go to “Settings > Dashboard Preferences. And please reblog this post, so that everybody will see this. Thank you very much!

I assumed I just wasn’t writing very well, but maybe it’s not just me.

Am I supposed to pay to get my writing in front of followers now?

We interrupt your regularly-scheduled sci-fi content because this is important for app users, and it sucks. We all follow blogs because we want to see their content, not to have a crappy algorithm decide what’s best.

This blog is down approximately 80%, which doesn’t affect me other than as an annoyance (as this is a hobby and @okayto is small-ish) but the issue undoubtedly hurts others.


Below are instructions for turning it off. You have to do it individually–it doesn’t matter if a blog you follow turns it off, you’ll still be affected unless you do the same.


We don’t normally reblog PSAs, but this is very clearly affecting us, too! If you haven’t been getting your daily dose of RPG humor, this setting is probably why. Turn it off so you can see all the silly shit players say!

This is happening on my blog too, but as I use only desktop I can’t even fix this without installing a completely unnecessary mobile app on my freakin’ iPad.

I wonder if New Xkit might have a workaround that can set this option without needing a mobile app.

support content creators. 

With this on you dont see anyones art, you see shit posts / memes / general stuff with hundreds of thousands of notes, not creators who get a couple hundred or thousand of notes, not people like me who barely get that, who are starting out. 


the adhd friend(tm) experience


  • the only thing you wanna talk about is your current favorite subject (your hyperfixation). everything else is so boring you wanna cry
  • no I WILL pay attention to my friend’s story
  • brain: hyperfixation hyperfixation hyperfixation hyperfixation
  • the story is over. you heard 3 words of it. everyone else is laughing so you do too, nervously
  • friend: ‘here’s how to get to my house. you turn onto Route 28 and–’ *friend’s voice turns into the Charlie Brown Adult noises* ‘–you’re there! Easy, right?’
  • somebody says something that reminds you of a story you wanted to tell. do you:
  • a. stop listening to the conversation so you can remember the story
  • b. interrupt them to tell the story immediately
  • c. interrupt them to ask them to remind you to tell the story later, but forget what the story was when they remind you
  • d. stop listening to the conversation so you can remember the story but then forget the story as you slip off into a train of thought all your own
  • (the answer is yes)
  • ‘so sarah–’ ‘wait, who’s sarah?’ ‘dude she sits next to you at work’
  • names and faces: no correlation
  • it doesn’t matter if you met 5 minutes or 5 years ago. you cannot for the life of you remember that classmate’s name
  • you can’t remember when your friend’s birthday is. after 6 years of friendship
  • being The Late One™ at every gathering
  • relatedly: wait, the birthday party is today!?
  • being The Flake™
  • guess who forgot to paypal money for the group gift/buy decorations/keep an eye on the ticket release dates again? that’s right, it you
  • intense bouts of rejection-sensitive dysphoria (feels like anxiety spirals/depression episodes) because your flakiness caused your friends trouble
  • knowing you will never be good enough for your friends because they’re still your friends despite you being an utter flake
  • it’s your turn to talk. you open your mouth. 12 minutes later you have finished your dissertation, which covered 52 unrelated subjects and never resolved the opening topic
  • bonus points: you don’t remember what the opening topic was
  • when you hang out with friends who are diagnosed with adhd, you never shut up and never pause to breathe but nobody is bothered and everybody has just as much to say as you do on just as many subjects

I literally can’t get myself to sit through movies that don’t have women. I’m like where the fuck are the women? Why are there so many men? This is boring as fuck goodbye

Even if it’s historically accurate?

as everyone knows, women were invented in 1990

today is Nov. 15. the FCC, under chairman Ajit Pai, will not listen to the public despite millions of comments in support of net neutrality. They are going to try their hardest to kill net neutrality, which in turn will kill the internet, which in turn will help eradicate democracy. it won’t just affect Americans, it has the potential to affect the entire internet, something we ALL use daily. you can bet your ass other countries will see america doing this, and use it as an excuse to do it in their own countries.

portugal has no net neutrality. this is what buying a plan looks like there:

you have to pay MORE for features you’re already guaranteed to have under net neutrality. and in america, you already know how expensive everything is.

democrats AND republicans both want net neutrality. advocacy groups in touch with congress have said that if your members of congress receive calls from you, they are more encouraged and more likely to take action to stop Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality. after Nov. 22, it will be MUCH HARDER to convince your member of congress.

please, call them. call them daily.


I 100% agree with this. But one fact is wrong, Portugal does have net neutrality, that image was from a mobile data plan

The comments here prove Portugal has net neutrality



It occurs to me that there are people who weren’t on this website in 2012 and therefore never saw the magical gif that you can actually hear:

It’s been over five years and that still impresses the hell out of me.

drop whatever you’re doing right now and climb a tree

its pitch black outside, and freezing cold. I think ill climb a tree tomorrow

you climb that fuckin tree right now

I’ve literally never seen this post on my dash when it is not after dark and cold as balls. I’m beginning to think this is a conspiracy to get us eaten by some nocturnal tree demon.

everybody put in the tags at what time you saw this

azesdrftghjnkghjd no, you don’t understand, Kojirō is such a sweetie and Haruka is such a sweetie that they could trust each other about their Pokémon needing rest……………..
























James is such a sweetheart it’s ridiculous.

James is the best pokémon trainer ever. He asks if his pokémon WANTS to join him.

I want the pokemon games to have a James option where you can decide  to ask a pokemon if they want to join your party.. it should be an option you can only pick at the start and if they say no you let them go and leave them alone

This is the reason he’s my favourite character. He wasn’t made to be bad he’ll do anything for his Pokémon!





I started high school 7 years ago Jesus

u done yet

I’m trapped in one of the lockers



Dear customers, from a Tim Hortons employee,

- If you come through the drive thru, especially in the morning, and order a take 12, you are personally responsible for at least two of my grey hairs.

- We can hear just about everything you say if you’re speaking loudly and clearly at the drive thru speaker so unless you want your personal conversation to be the topic of the hour for internal discussion then maybe talk about that pretty lady you wooed the other day another time.

- If you drive up to the drive thru speaker and don’t turn off your big truck there is a 100% chance I will hear absolutely nothing you try to tell me. Please turn it off, everything will go much faster thank you.

- If we ask you to hold on a moment over the drive thru speaker, it’s because we’re getting donuts/cold drinks from another order and calling us bullshit and demanding faster service will not make us run back to the order screen with gusto. It just makes us feel bad. I’m sorry I have to grab these two dozen donuts while you wait for a minute to order coffee. 

- There is a 100% chance that at any point during the day, we are understaffed, and therefore your patience is super appreciated and the nicer you are to us, the nicer we will be to you.

- If you’re a regular and you’re an asshole, we will remember your face. But not for the reasons you’d like us to.

- Almost everyone is humming a song at any moment in the day. Some times when we hum the same song we’ll starting singing to each other and dance a little. If you happen to catch us at it and dance along, you instantly become the favorite of the day.

- If we mess up your order or coffee and you politely tell us, we’ll absolutely exchange it for the correct one for free with no worries at all. 

- virtually the entire menu is super customizable. Do you wanna put strawberry cream cheese on a toasted maple french toast bagel and add tomato, cheddar and lettuce to it? we can do that. Wanna add four shots of espresso and a vanilla and caramel shot to your coffee? you got it. All you gotta do it ask.

- Our actual policy is ‘make it right’ so if you want virtually anything all you have to do is ask. It’s not unusual or cumbersome, you don’t have to apologise or call yourself a coffee snob for asking for specific things in your order.
