Bee's Colony Collapse Disorder: Neonicotinoids

The Mystery of the Disappearing Bees has been solved.  Turns out it wasn't cell phones.

It was a pesticide.

So, once again, we've fucked ourselves over by being dipshits who spray chemicals on everything.

Because heaven forfend that we just leave shit alone.

Go On: Mr. Sunshine 2

It's mostly a new version of Mr. Sunshine.

I'm ok with that, since Matthew Perrry is great.

Humanity: Twilight Lincoln

Fiction often presents us with situations in which the existence of humanity is justified to an alien invasion via an appeal to our inherent nobility, our continued striving towards betterment, our ability to reach beyond ourselves to work together for grand ideals.

Hulu's current trailer section may very well undermine that notion entirely.

For your consideration:

Lincoln:  A film about the 16th President of the United States who led our country through the Civil War, preserved the Union, and ended slavery.

Breaking Dawn Part 2:  A film about how Bella Swanson, who, having changed into a vampire, defends her daughter against the Volturi council through a coalition of other vampire clans, and some werewolves.

If an invading alien race were presented with both of these trailers, as a summary of what humanity can accomplish, then I'm pretty sure the aliens would be justified in ending our species.

And that's before we go into this Gangnam Style horseshit.

One step forward.  5,000 steps back.
