It's a nice article but it sounds like it wasn't written by someone that has ever dealt with bees. My family doesn't expose our bees to much of anything. We don't feed them junk food. They don't get carted around. No signs of disease or illness. You just go out to your boxes one day and it's silent. No dead bodies. No signs of distress. They're just gone. The bees fly out and disappear.

It's funny because we used to have so many honey bees that they'd make their way into the side paneling of our home and start hives. During the hot days of summer, the whole house would smell like honey. Can barely even hold the box hives together now...

That's both amazing and sad, what's your theory on it Ahriman??

(Maybe you should feed them junk food, the more junk food i eat the less i want to leave the house)

  I really couldn't tell you. I feel like every idea is all hat and no cattle. We've observed instances of radical thought and emotion in other species of life. Bees themselves have complex relationships. A social hierarchy of +30,000 members that's controlled through pheromones. House of cards, yes? History has seen the collapse of many great empires. It just might be their time.
