Since you appear to be a true thinking person (this conclusion is drawn from looking through the rash of instructables you have turned out lately) I am going to give you a couple of things to think about. And no I am not meaning to be sarcastic or unkind or anything like that. I am amused, which is really what an author strives for. Anyway.

1. In terms of politics --- In the history of mankind there has never existed a government that has not failed. If there was one it would still be here. So why is it that in spite of that overwhelming evidence that people believe that whatever government they are under is going to exist forever as the greatest government?

2. In every one of these end of the world fiction stories where there are only a few million people left why do they all run around shooting and killing each other and especially violate the most basic rule of survival which is ALWAYS PROTECT THE BREEDING STOCK. You don't kill or harm females that are capable of having offspring. It will doom you to extinction. Nothing matters about them except that they can have children. Gay people become extinct as well as murderer's and factions that cannot cooperate with the survivors. Why doesn't anyone understand that the only path to survival is to build viable communities. That is where the future is, not in idiots running around with guns.

3. Why is it that atheists don't understand that they actually do belong to a religion because atheism is in and of itself a religion?

4. Why is it a surprise to an atheist that they have trouble getting along with others of their faith? When their "faith" has no principles that are common to all then there are no principles and no reason to hold anyone to any kind of standard because by definition they have no common standards or morals. Hence having no common moral standard each can make their own morality which will always put them at odds with everyone else and thus they will never be able to achieve any kind of peace.

Just some things for future discussion.

Keep in mind that since the e mail notifications are not working I may not notice if you comment on any of these.

I aim and generally succeed to get on with everybody from all faiths and creeds. It's just a case of respecting the fact that people have different ideas and celebrating those differences. I'd personally find it incredibly boring if everybody agreed with me, so 'vive la difference' as they say in France. If people disgree, they don't have to be nasty to each other and peace can be maintained fairly easily. It's the 'Be nice' policy. There's not that much religion where I live and this policy seems to work quite well. I know it's different in the USA where religion is much more important and I've seen first hand some really good things that the church is doing there so I would not criticise it too strongly

I don't really know and suspect that I am not a proper atheist myself. I just go on what I have experienced in my life. Some of it has been very strange and most of the meaningful bits I am sure I will never really understand intellectually - I end up running out of words!

Well, if I were the Hollywood script writer, I'd do all that stuff and then might show that eventually everything calms down and we get back to normal life. I guess it's just a bit boring, that's all!

I don't really believe that myself. I think that we, the voters, should take more responsibility about what/who we vote for and stop complaining when we get the regular charlatans, be they left wing, right wing or whoever. It's always easy to point the finger at the government, not so easy to do that to ourselves. Unfortunately, weak people running the country have created a power vacuum into which the corporations have stepped into. A corporation is a faceless zombie that just wants profits and very seldom any thing good for society, although there are some exceptions. If people don't start voting properly, these corporations will get more powerful and democracy will become more and more eroded.

Wow, that looks really good! Definitely an instructable in the making, even if it is a kit you have bought? I think your 'selling' point could be that you are setting it up for optimum colony survival during the severe winter where you live. I can see that you've used nice thick timbers, which will help with the insulation. Other top bar hives just use a plastic oil drum, which would be no good during a cold winter. Well done!

You are a GENIOUS
I KNEW I would get help from you. This was the project, I was trying to thing to do. To raise the 100% death rate to 100%.
i spoke to a few People and looked at a few Hives..

They look flimsy in comparison to the strudy walls .

I will still insulate. The most Experienced Bee Keeper ( 800 Hives)
recommends water heater insulation. Hmmm

I read another one of the Instructables, whichrecommends Some sort of Foam insulation.
I like this Idea, I heard from my neighbor, that it would be extremely
Expensive.

I can start saving up now.
This Is how I am doing it now. I hust learned about
ENTRANCE REDUCERS and
Comb spacers

I got them, 1-2 items a month.

The 3 option was to put the HIVE inside a sturdy green house.
about 400$

I saved all the trees My 16 year old neighbor's Boy hacked down for me

~ Or a variation or all three
