A Funny story about traveling to Russia

According to my family, my story is more scary than funny. Sure, I was scared then, but now I think it’s a riot!

One moment I was in Red Square, the next moment I was in the back of a van, a guy in uniform screaming at me in Russian. He had my passport, which I had relinquished in fear.

My mind raced. Had my group noticed I was missing? Would my family miss me? Did they still have gulags in Russia? How long would I last doing hard labor in Siberia?

Finally, after groping for words, any words, I squeaked out, “Skolko?” This means “how much?”

The Russian official stopped screaming and said in perfect English, “Seventy-five U.S. dollars.”

Lessons Learned

  • Learn a little Russian language. You never know when you will need it!

Why Did Fort Lauderdale Police Arrest an Old Man for Feeding Homeless People?

The haves don’t want to see the have-nots around – so they don’t have to live with their guilty conscience. And we call ourselves a Christian nation? Civil disobedience raises awareness, so I hope this story goes viral and people all over the world can see what hypocrites the US has become. Let’s wake up people, cause u could be next!

♪system of a down – toxicity (live from bdo 2002)

Everlasting moon, and the stars above and the stars below
reflect you in my eyes,
But I love you
I really love you

Conversion, software version 7.0
Looking at life through the eyes of a tire hub
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, of our city

New, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

More wood for the fires, loud neighbours
Flashlight reveries caught in the headlights of a truck
Eating seeds as a pastime activity
The toxicity of our city, our city

New, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder, disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

New, what do you own the world?
How do you own disorder
Now somewhere between the sacred silence
Sacred silence and sleep
Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep
Disorder, disorder, disorder

When I became the sun
I shone life into the man’s hearts
When I became the sun
I shone life into the man’s hearts

10000 years ago in Mesopotamia
A new type of thinking was developed
One that involved totalitarian agriculture
And now
Good bye blue skies
Good bye blue skies
Blue skies goodbye
We are falling as sleep as people as animals on this planet
We are here to nurture our planet
We are here to help garden this fucking place
Not destroy it, for God sake
I am sick and tired of globalism
I am sick and tired of fascism
I am sick and tired of this type of people

Give bees a chance …. they are very important!!

Bees are fascinating creatures, far from being robotic drones they’re sentient beings with “personality”. Very good post! Now all we have to do is stop farmers from spraying deadly pesticides from Monsanto which are killing all the bees! BTW, neonicotinoid class pesticides are banned all over europe… but they still use it here in corporate US. 😦

It Is What It Is

~~April 23, 2014~~

Bees pollinate our crops and give us honey. But there’s so much more to these buzzing insects than that.

1. THEIR STING HAS SOME BENEFITS

A toxin in bee venom called melittin may prevent HIV. Melittin can kill HIV by poking holes into the virus’s protective envelope. (Meanwhile, when mellitin hitches a ride on certain nanoparticles, it will just bounce off normal cells and leave them unharmed.) Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis hope the toxin can be used in preventative gels.

Bee stings may also ease pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers at the University of Sao Paulo found that molecules in bee venom increase your body’s level of glucocorticoid, an anti-inflammatory hormone.

2. THEY WORK HARDER THAN YOU

During chillier seasons, worker bees can live for nine months. But in the summer, they rarely last longer than six weeks—they literally work themselves to death.
