Imagine how impossible it would be to not go take a look if the circle of ants started chanting your name. And they're like, you can't leave because we drew a line made of tiny crystals now you have to do us a favor. And you're like, let's just see where this goes "yup, you got me... what's the favor?" and usually the favor is like, "kill this one ant for us" or "give me a pile of sugar and you're like... okay? and you do, because why not, it isn't hard for you and boy is this going to be a fucking story to tell, these fucking ants chanting your name and wanting a spoonful of sugar or whatever. And SOMEtimes you get asked for things you can't really do, one of them, she's like, "l love this ant but she won't pay any attention to me, make me important to her" and you're like... um? how? So you just kill every ant in the colony except the two of them, ta-da! problem solved! and the first ant is like "horrified whisper "what have I done" drackir This is the best explanation for higher powers I've ever really heard.

 And they're like, you can't leave because we drew a line made of tiny crystals

 and you're like... okay? and you do, because why not, it isn't hard for you and
 boy is this going to be a fucking story to tell, these fucking ants chanting your

Asian, Bad, and Facts: Japanese honeybees kill hornets by enclosinig them in a ball of bees, and then shaking so fast and generating so much heat that they cook the hornet at 115°F Photo courtesy of Takahashi/wikipedia @factsweird <p><a href="http://therothwoman.tumblr.com/post/165708334341/mindblowingfactz-european-honeybees-have-no" class="tumblr_blog">therothwoman</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://weird-facts.org/post/165693362252/european-honeybees-have-no-innate-defense-against" class="tumblr_blog">mindblowingfactz</a>:</p><blockquote><p>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.</p></blockquote> <p>Bad and Naughty Hornets will be cooked in the <b><i>Ḅ̖͔͓̤̜̘̀͂ͮ͌͊̂ ͓̥̥̒ͭ̔̒Ẹ͎͎̫̠̞ͩ͒ ̲̥̦̲͒̏Ë̘́̏̾ͮ̒ ͉̬̦̹̳̜͈̋͗̀̇̍̌ ̱͕̱̤̣̟̓̽ͧ ̗̗̲ͮ͒ͧ͂̇ ̯̔͊͑͆̈Ŏ͔̝̔͌͒̓ ̞͈̩V̪͕̲̳̥̖ͩ ̙̺̲̫ͥ̔̽̏̓ͨͬȄ̹͈̦ ̼͓̻͉̫̖́̄̑͌ͣͤ̄N̜̝̖̠̬ͨͮ̾</i></b><br/></p></blockquote>

Empire, Ethiopians, and Memes: Somalians have had to fight the Italians British, French, Cubans, Ethiopians &more because everyone wants control of Somalia BARTAMAHA, COM chakabars Colonialism of Somalia 🇸🇴 : 1840-1960 Between 1840 and 1886, the British East India Company established a series of trade treaties with various Somali chiefs. Italy also had a hand in the early establishment of Somalia and marked out the boundaries of Italian Somaliland in the south between 1897 and 1908. Ethiopia claimed the Ogaden region of western Somaliland in 1897. The first uprising against colonialism occurred when Somalis sought to push the Ethiopians out of the Ogaden region but then expanded to target European colonists as well. The Dervish State, headed Mohammed Abdille Hassan, an Ogaden himself who the British referred to as “Mad Mullah,” conducted a religious-based war of resistance against the Ethiopians and British from 1899 to 1920, resulting in the death of nearly one third of northern Somalia’s population. Great Britain defeated Hassan in 1920. Italy maintained control of Italian Somaliland as a part of its African empire (including Ethiopia and Eritrea) until 1941. During WWII Great Britain also took over these areas and ruled them as military protectorates until 1949, at which time the newly formed United Nations granted Italy a trusteeship over most of present-day Somalia. The British maintained a trusteeship over what is today the self-declared state of Somaliland. While the Italians dedicated significant effort towards developing their colony, Great Britain took a more hands-off approach to governance, leaving more responsibility in the hands of local leaders but also providing less by way of infrastructure. These distinctions are often cited as underpinnings of the incompatibility that would arise between the two areas. This colonial history, in addition to other dynamics, is also seen to play a role in the subsequent, contrasting levels of stability of Somalia and Somaliland. chakabars
