The Daily Word in motel bees, botched executions and RIP Bob Hoskins
By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Apr 30 2014 9:26 AM ]
It's Wednesday, April 30th,
and the Albuquerque Environmental Health Department thinks you should stay inside and keep your windows closed today,
security guards at the abandoned De Anza Motel on Central and Washington have discovered that the historic building's walls are filled with thousands and thousands of bees,
and trailer park residents, animal welfare officers and city crews all worked for hours yesterday to try and rescue a cat that appeared to be stuck in a storm drain, only to discover that the cat had already left by the time they opened the grate.
Meanwhile, the state of Oklahoma failed to painlessly execute a man with an untested drug cocktail; instead, the man writhed and cried out in agony for twenty minutes before finally dying of a "massive heart attack,"
and antibiotic resistant bacteria have now spread to every part of the world, prompting the WHO to declare "a major global threat,"
actor Bob Hoskins, best known for playing the non-cartoon human in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, has died of pneumonia at age 71,
and a man in Maine called the police after two escaped goats refused to get down off the top of his Ford Focus. "I guess goats like climbing on cars," said Police Chief Scott McMaster.
Have a great day!

Webgame Wednesday: Revenge of the the Zombees
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Aug 31 2011 3:50 PM ]
Any game that claims to feature "explicit '80s gore and heavy metal violence" is OK by me. Revenge of the the Zombees is an unapologetic throwback to 16-bit '80s arcade action. The unique gameplay has you controlling a cloud of undead bees seeking to wreak their vengeance on mankind. How? By attacking and destroying everything in creation! Gather up honeycombs, recruit more bees, set yourself on fire--whatever it takes to destroy as much as possible. You get to knock over buildings, swarm cops, take down helicopters, kill superheroes, sting civilians to death. You are bees! You are zombies! You are zombees!

Do It Yourself, Honey
Urban farmers take living well into their own hands
By Christie Chisholm
A colony of 80,000 bees holds enough sting to kill you—actually, it holds enough to kill about 80 of you. But sitting a few feet away from a hive that’s nearly as tall as she is, Chantal Foster is unfazed as yellow-and-black honeybees whiz by on a pollen-fueled highway. Maybe it’s because, with rare exception, the potentially deadly flying insects seem to have no interest in her. The bees are on a mission, and it’s about getting frisky with flowers, not ferocious with humans.

Year in Review: Food
The Year in Food
Farm laws and spilled secrets
By Ari LeVaux
Some will argue that 2010 was the year homemade sausage finally came of age, or the year the school garden movement exploded. Others will remember 2010 as the year KFC's Double Down sandwich made its glorious debut. With so many food preferences and priorities, you can hardly make an end-of-year food list to please everyone, so let’s start with what the people think. Some of them, anyway.
