I Know they CAN, buy MAY they?

Morons and Exploiters of Sympathy...

They're a match made in heaven. After all, who knew that costly and pointless grocery store chain Whole Paycheck Whole Foods, was running an online "Film Festival"? Think of all the carbon being expelled heating up those servers and copper wires! ForSHAME!

In any even, they too think that Bees are telling them something.

"Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us?"– A profound, alternative look at the bee crisis from Taggart Siegel, award-winning director of "The Real Dirt on Farmer John." On a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, the film weaves together a story of the heart-felt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world and uncovers the long-term causes that could create one of our most urgent food crises.
Whatever. I can't wait to see if they can remember all of this stuff, or move on to some other banner cause by the time reality comes to pay a visit.

Minutes later, he did.

The man entered the NAB’s Burke Road branch in Camberwell about 10.45am today, armed with a double-barrelled, sawn-off shotgun and demanded $20 and $50 notes from the teller, police said.

Be warned, though. The place never looked that good.
