Curly Fu and Peanut slash fic banned in China. Slash writers arrested. This is terrifying.
Let’s forget all the in-fighting and wank for a moment and appreciate that not all fans are creating in safe or accepting circumstances. Maybe we could try being a little more forgiving and generous towards our fellow fans, we don’t know what’s going on in their day.
In the past decade, the US honeybee population has been decreasing at an alarming and unprecedented rate. But why?
Emma Bryce offers some explanations in the TED-Ed Lesson The case of the vanishing honeybees.
One solution? Plant flowers! In Marla Spivak’s TED Talk Why bees are disappearing, she reminds us that when bees have access to good nutrition, we have access to good nutrition through their pollination services.
So get out there, Tumblr - and plant some bee-friendly flowers!

Colours meme: Violet + Red= Magenta for Universal love
(Magenta is a purplish red color and one of the three primary colors of the subtractive CMYK color model. In the meaning of colors, magenta represents universal love at its highest level. A combination of red and violet, magenta contains the passion, power and energy of red, restrained by the introspection and quiet energy of violet. This color is also an instrument of change and transformation; it helps to release old emotional patterns that prevent personal and spiritual development and aids us in moving forward.)
