Economics, shitposting-adjacent Show more
With all the stuff I'm reading about EU article 13 copyright stuff it's been making me think.
The Capitalist Economic systems are in like a total panic right now because they have no idea how to handle a post-scarcity resource.
And so rather than realize their understanding is flawed they just send a legion of lawyers to sit there and whine instead of admitting their economic policies are no longer compatible with 21st century technology.

First of, thanks to everyone who donated, no matter how small the donation.
And thanks to the many people who boosted my status.
With this, the help of friends, and clearing out my (small) savings, we were able to pay the rent, and we should be able to manage from there on.
The donation pages on @TransparencyReports are still open, but back to the normal stuff to have a small something for my full time work here.
Thank you all again. Y'all are awesome.
Bee shitposting, Insect reproduction Show more
Just read this about Drone (male) Honeybees and reproduction.
"Mating occurs in flight, which accounts for drones needing better vision, which is provided by their large eyes. Should a drone succeed in mating, he soon dies because the penis and associated abdominal tissues are ripped from the drone's body after sexual intercourse"
British shitposting, Insects Show more
So last night I spent a few hours reading about colony life inside a Western Honey Bee Hive
And I went to sleep after reading about how Workers make decisions involving the Queen Bee.
And I dreamed where Queen Elizabeth was the Queen Bee and laid eggs that British people hatched out of and the Queen was concerned that since she wasn't laying enough eggs the British Workers may kill her and make a new Queen. They were Bees with British faces.
