it was right here the entire time
Found in a 120 year old time capsule.
I’m sorry I might sound like a madwoman for going on a rant about this but man, it’s…
I don’t know how to express it but just the thought of some person, 120 years ago, taking a photo of their cat, which back then wasn’t easy – they didn’t have phones with cameras, each photo required a lot of time and dedication, so not only the person “wasted” a whole photo on their cat, they also did their fricking best to save this photo and carefully put it into an envelope to preserve it so that people in the future will know that there was this cat and it looked like this and it’s owner thought the cat looked lovely that day so much that they decided to take a photo of it and then they loved the photo so much that they went out of their way to preserve it for future generations like “hello people from the future! this is what my cat loos like!” because they loved their cat so much they wanted people from the future to know about it is… crazy to me… and here we are, 120 years later, long after the cat and it’s owners passed away, looking at an old photo of a cat and gushing about it. The cat died so long ago and wouldn’t even know it existed if not for the owner that loved their cat so much that they decided this photo was worth preserving and put it into a time capsule. and seeing now how people dedicate whole blogs to their cats and take countless pictures of them just to show to other people really hits because you realize that in the end, people from today aren’t that much different from people that were 120 years ago. We all just love our cats and want people to look at them.
I bet this woman was imagining the photo may be seen by like… a family some day. But no. It survived till the age of the internet. It has now transcended the original media. It is now being seen by far more eyes in far more places than the media she chose would normally allow.
I hope the taker of this 120 year old photo is PROUD.
The youtube video has a closeup of the negative, so I processed it digitally and:
And the SECOND photo:
please die for me~
Take this with you
to all my white followers who stew in unnecessary guilt trying to come to terms with the privilege you have, watch this
those half-hyur genes, amirite
“Bees in the washing machine” sounds like a horror scene waiting to happen.
what a wonderful video with someone who really cares about bees.￼
Just before I start I just wanted to let y’all know that this information is the latest I have if anything new has happed in the last month or two I don’t know about it. If this is the case please add on to this post.
For anyone who don’t know this is why people don’t like this girl. While she does promote “saving the bees” which is great she’s not an actual be removal specialist she’s just bee keeper. She also promoting the idea to her followers that bees will never hurt you and that they are completely harmless. Which is obviously not true. She works in Texas ￼and the type of bees she is working with are africanized bees (killer bees) which are some on the most dangerous bees out there. She doesn’t wear any sort of protection and most of her videos are staged. She’ll get her husband to do most of the actual removal work and the only thing she does do is what you see in the videos.
Many bee removal specialist have called her out on her unsafe techniques like not wearing a suit to properly protect herself. She only recently started to show herself smoking the bees before she mess with them. When the specialist did call her out other people on the app attack the specialist and said thing like “you only hate her cause she’s pretty” and “she’s making people feel safe around bees and you’re just making them afraid of them”.
With that with all her talk about saving the bees she doesn’t actually do anything to do that. Honey bees are actually an invasive species in America that often kill native bees that are necessary to our ecosystem. She doesn’t give any information about other types of bees or about how she helps them. I don’t think she’s even mentioned that the honeybees she’s saving are a big part of the declining bee population problem. ￼￼So the “another day of saving the bees” line is really just for the good look.
Personally I couldn’t care less about wether or not her videos are staged but she is unconsciously promoting a level of carelessness around bees. People need to be cautious around bees because even if your not allergic to them if enough of them sting you you can get sick. ￼￼
Well damn. That’s disappointing. I knew some people were spooked about her not wearing protective gear, but I figured she was a pro and would know when protective was required or not. For anyone who wants to read more on this situation, here you go.
As a former beekeeper and as an enthusiast of native bees, I cringe every time I see one of this girl’s videos.
you people do realize that unprotected bee moving is like. an actual cultivated skillset thats been around for centuries right. records dating back to the middle fucking ages talk about people whos entire job is ‘knows how to pick up swarms without getting hurt and puts them in the bee bucket’
like just bc yall dont know how to fucking do nor want to know it doesnt mean its some sort of ‘promoting of carelessness’ like girl what. what on earth are yall on. are we really going back to the ‘well what if some dumbass copies you jumping off a building, professional pakourist!! then what!!!!’ type mindset. yall are ADULTS not children.
“ She doesn’t give any information about other types of bees or about how she helps them.”
she literally promotes native bee protections?? shes talked about this. at length. shes also had to deal with mf calling her a trump supporter with no evidence in spite of the fact shes said multiple times she hates the bastard. if yall arent going to to the barest bones of research shut the fuck up??? its EVEN IN THE ARTICLE ONE OF YALL FUCKING LINKED???
“I don’t think she’s even mentioned that the honeybees she’s saving are a big part of the declining bee population problem.”
this just in!! moving pest bees to more productive areas, like the people who got the bees from my mothers yard due to her allergy, are Bad Actually, because they’re not just straight up killing them and dumping 30 pounds of native bees there instead!! i am very intelligent!
@bearly-qualified you’re a beekeeper right do you have a take on this ?
If you’re good at working with bees, comfortable and confident doing it without protection, and understand that there is a risk of being stung, you can go out with as little protection as you like. Honeybees are extremely docile and aren’t going to sting a non-allergic person enough to make them ill unless you majorly fuck up. Honeybee body language is like ridiculously easy to read, and the things that provoke them are pretty easy to avoid. Basically, unless a colony is particularly aggressive, a honeybee won’t sting you unless you give them a reason to. Literally every time I’ve been stung, it was my own fault. You can tell that they’re provoked because they’ll hold their abdomen in the air to show off their stinger, and I didn’t see a single one do that in this video, so she knows what she’s doing. Lastly, while she is in an area with Africanized bees, these are not killer bees lmfao. They’re so aggressive that she probably couldn’t get within 5 feet of that washing machine without a full suit and gloves, and she most certainly, wouldn’t be able to scoop them with her bare hands. And none of this is like, exclusive secret beekeeper knowledge, this is pretty much Honeybees 101 and you could find all of it in less than 5 minutes on Google so I’m not sure where these people got this info from.
ALSO: "She’s not an actual bee removal specialist she’s just a beekeeper” man idk where you’re from but in America, the “bee removal specialists” are just beekeepers. You call a beekeeper and they remove the bees and usually add them to their own apiary. Some of them will even do it for free because they enjoy helping people and they get to keep the colony. I don’t understand why someone would remove the bees and… Not keep them? As I assume this “bee removal specialist” would just get rid of them I guess? Also if you’re a “bee removal specialist,” whatever that is, you’re going to need the exact same tools, knowledge, and skills as a regular beekeeper, so she’s absolutely qualified to remove them. Unless you’re talking about an exterminator, and if you call an exterminator for honeybees, I hope you get stung in the ass.
I’ve been apprenticed and even my mentor was like “oh yeah we’re just wearing the suits because it makes us less nervous and the bees less nervous as a result because we don’t make a bunch of sudden movements. Really determined bees can probably sting through the suit you’re wearing so don’t assume it’s a forcefield or anything.”
The stingers also get stuck in the suit and can sting you later so it can actually be a hindrance rather than a help to experienced beekeepers
