"Honey, leave those bees alone and come to bed!" "Dammit woman, I'm doing this for humanity!" The tagline for the movie about his life will be, "In a world divided by the color of men's skin, one man rose above bigotry to prove that bees could also see color."

"Honey where is my Beekeeper suit?"

From now on I will call "Trial, and Error" as "Roach Approach".

Starring Samuel L Jackson

He also had awesome facial hair.

I read that as “Cockroaches can learn by trial and error that honeybees can see color” and, for a moment, was utterly confused

What have you done?

in 1907.... Yeah its a pretty impressive feat.

As far as I can tell, just shitty internet comments

Do you know bees and dogs can smell fear?

Did you know the human head weighs 8 pounds?

When did they start getting treated like Americans?

I laughed but feel guilty.

Please stop calling all black people african americans. And please stop calling americans who are black african american.. just call them american.
