Can we farm vulture bees. Just start buying meat stock and feeding them to vulture bees.
maybe but they're basically just making regular honey.
domesticating a whole new ass species would take a long long time also
I mean bees werent really domesticated by us I think. Its more of a symbiotic relationship with the beekeeper that the bees chose to not abandon
We basicly emprison theyr Queen in a golden cage until she die and then we buy another one
No. The hive can leave at any time - and WILL LEAVE if the keeper doesn’t provide for them. the beekeeper provides a home, scares away predators that would destroy the home to get the honey, keeps the hive healthy by knowing what a sick bee looks like and removing it. In return, the beekeeper harvests honey every so often. it’s a cooperative partnership.
As I understood it the bees could leave but dont do so because of the protection the beekeeper provides
Yes Hence the golden cage
A golden cage is still a cage, a bee-box is not, they are free to leave
so it's not really a cage because they can leave if they want. there is no emprisoning going on.
it's more like if someone gave you a nice house that was made specifically to suit you that you could move out of anytime you wanted to. but you don't want to move out cause it fulfills all your needs and is better than what you could find elsewhere.
A golden cage is a métaphore meaning : a situation where you are happy and strive but is emprisoning
Imprisoning doesn't just imply they cannot leave though, it makes it explicit.
These bees can leave. They aren't physically restrained. And it's not like the bees are financially dependent upon the keepers, right? Like they can just fly to a tree near some flowers and hive.
They are not imprisoned.
Yeah, if the bee keeper doesn't do their job right the bees can and WILL leave. It's less imprisonment and more then renting out a box, with their rent and utilities paid on the extra honey they make.
the whole meat honey thing is [kinda misinformation](https://bogleech.tumblr.com/post/653825713872502784/aw-it-turns-out-we-were-all-wrong-about-vulture)
Oh thank you! Sadly a bit disappointing but thank you for the truth!
perhaps a little bit. no less unsettling though.
Still pretty rad. And I love that in the comments it's only "we can eat their honey, right?"
So morbid, can devour a small body to bones in only two days!
Meanwhile some dude, sat in his pants eating a whole rotisserie chicken in 1 hour be like
**They make money.**
That is the worst pun I have ever heard. Take my upvote
A: What the fuck is this?!
H: No idea. Mother Nature sure does have a twisted sense of humor, though.
A: what the hell is this?
H: no idea, but now I want to try some meat honey
H2: do you think they might have bacon honey?
H3: I heard it’s edible and really sweet
H4: same way we consume half our bodyweight in caffeine without dying.
How does it taste?
Feed this to a vegan to instantly Make Their Head Explode!™
Vegans don't eat honey either...
Though I don't know how vegetarians will react.
Isn't that proven to be stupid by their own stance? Like, iirc vegans don't like the animal exploitation part.
But bees make way more honey than they need, and if the queen feels like she doesn't vibe with the beekeeper, she just flies away with her workers to make another hive. That doesn't sound like exploitation to me
"Nature will take care about it" or something along those lines.
hey. I'd love to see this.
