oh no, you called me butthurt! boy that really showed me.

butthurt: use of this is an instant way to let the entire online world that you're a complete idiot. Originally a crass way to make fun of someone who is irrationally upset about something, is now used by total douchebags who don't have a creative or original bone in their body to troll on someone who expresses the slightest displeasure in anything.

You brought the "party politics" into a Snowden discussion, "bro." Nice projection.

Great, you've connected Snowden to MLK in a comparison that says they both risked their lives for what they believed in, and a greater good. Of course, the fact remains that one risked being killed by his own government, and the other was killed by a psycho racist citizen. The original poster claimed "He is not on the same level as Rosa Parks, Susan B Anthony or Martin Luther King Jr." - clearly he risked way more than 2 of those 3. We're getting on a pointless tangent here.

Nice non sequitur. I was referring to your completely off-the-mark claim that pesticides were killing bees. Once I read that claim, it's hard to believe that there's any sort of logic or science behind your other claim.

To be blunt: it appears you might be just pulling stuff out of your ass.

Since the range migration started happening "even before the neonicotinoid pesticides came into play in the 1980s,” both of your theories seem to not be relevant to this particular article. Especially the wacky cellphone tower tinfoil hat guy.

Please at least try to RTFA next time.

Christ, it's like the 5th paragraph in: "One clue to the importance of climate: Bumblebee ranges began shrinking 'even before the neonicotinoid pesticides came into play in the 1980s,' says ecologist and coauthor Alana Pindar, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Guelph in Canada."

I know, no one likes to RTFA. But if you did: "One clue to the importance of climate: Bumblebee ranges began shrinking “even before the neonicotinoid pesticides came into play in the 1980s,” says ecologist and coauthor Alana Pindar, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Guelph in Canada."
