WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?

I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.

Please read the article before declaring Pluto as a planet again. It’s still not a “planet”, it is a “dwarf planet” for very specific reasons, and it simply doesn’t fit the bill for what we consider to be a planet. But, hey, Pluto even has the word “planet” in its classification.

Anyway, a general audience, made up of everyday non-astronomers, voted that they wanted Pluto to remain a planet. But a vote doesn’t change a planet’s classification, as much as saying the sky is lime green doesn’t make the sky lime green.

Various scores by composer George Crumb. What I find fascinating about these is that they were painstakingly written by hand before computers. The imagination required to come up with these visual as well as aural conceptions for a piece of music is unbelievable. 

Music can visually be anything! When you write, don’t be tied to the staff paper! www.nextnotes.org

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

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

'someone else's life work' white ppl will recognize a fucking bee’s humanity before actual black and brown human beings.
