Are you concerned about the decline of the bee population yet?

The bee population is down by 50% and that is alarming because of how important they are on the food chain. Bees are the main pollinating inscects, and without them plants will not grow, there will not be food, and there will be a major problem. Are you concerned yet? .

Yepp. And I am still not over that silly name, eggplant. I mean, what the fudge?

Side: Yes.

Eggplants are neither oval-shaped like an egg, nor white. So how did it happen that these vegetables were given a name with the word egg in it?

Eggplants came from Asia, and were popular in the Near East long before they reached Europe. Then, in the Middle Ages, traders brought a certain kind of eggplant to Europe, a rare white variety shaped just like a chicken egg. So the vegetable was called eggplant, and the name stuck, even when the familiar purple eggplant reached Europe years

later.

Eggplants were also called mad apples in some places, because people thought that eating an eggplant would make you go insane!

Centuries ago, Chinese women used a dye taken from the eggplant to stain their teeth black!

The fruit of the eggplant used to be white... back in the day. It looked like an egg.

Side: No.

I thought bees just made honey. Now that I know they make coffee, I'm very concerned.

Yes I am veery concerned bout the decline of the bee population. Like Einshtein said: ''If the bee disappeared from the surface of the globe thenn man will only have four years of life left."

And i totally agree with him. As a biologist I will tell you that if the bee go extinct the consequences will be bad for life on Earth as a whole. They are the main pollinators after all.

I went canoeing once when I was eight. I had a bee fly right in-between my eyes, it stung me on my nose, and I promptly fell off the boat.

I don't want any more of those fuckers flying around. I hope they continue to keep doing whatever it is that's making them die off (sting each other perhaps?).

Side: No.

I don't like bees, so, I am not concerned at all about this issue.

Side: No.
