wehn i was in Arizona, i read an article about a guy making honey from africanized killer bees...he must be a bee whisperer!

if the bees were actually aware of what a whisper was, that is...

You really cannot state that an amoeba is not aware....that an assumption of an unknown.

I understood that African bees that are mixed with the European bees, as far as i understand before they escaped (making them more resilient)is a sweety compared to some of the ...20,000 was it!

As a kid i got stung by about 2000 bees (well my mother stopped counting at a certain point) spent two weeks in a poison-coma and felt really sorry for killing all my fathers bees.
What you consider normal you are not really afraid of.
But still like them.

Self-
Awareness is usually observed by holding up a mirror and giving the animal/baby a dot on the head, and then watching the reaction.

First he is living in northern Minnesota, he is going to need sunlight for his tree and that almost demands a south facing window. Second he is on the north shore of Lake Superior and for that odds are that he would have a south facing window to see the lake, unless he is on some sort of inlet or bay.
Woodtick is in the twin city's I live on the North Shore of Lake Superior year round not him. He spends time in Grand Marais, he said in the winter time but he also said he is currently in the twin city's
And it is winter so who knows. I don't doubt he comes up here but it's not a year round thing.

Did you ever see the world the way an insect with facet-eyes sees it? I'll bet that if it was aware it would by aspirine.

Same thing they did with elephants...

no... that would be self awareness...just because you are not aware of yourself....doesn't imply that you have no awareness.

Ghostbrood is the entire population going to join, 352 people?
Looks idyllic:

The name Hell is deriven not from the fiery furnace, from the Old Norse word hellir, which meant ‘cliff cave’. Strangely enough, nowadays the word ‘hell’ in Norwegian means luck! As you would expect, the town has become a relatively popular tourist destination over the years. Visitors enjoy taking photographs of the local train station, which boasts a sign which reads “Hell: Gods-expedition”. This is actually a clever play on the Norwegian term godsekspedisjon, which means “cargo handling”! Rumor has it that this Hell tends to freeze over annually, believe it or not.

In Danmark and Amerika they also have god expedition nowadays

Yes. Because God created Adam in his own image and he saw that it was good.

God did not create a bacteria called Adam.

So langoliers what are you going to do with the goddess of the same name attested in all cultures around it.
You did not honestly believe that YHWH was the first.
