that is third grade level of understanding. It's like saying horse eats grass, so what. You haven't addressed the question I asked. How did these two different species, a plant and an insect co-evolve? So nothing created bees, they just sprang to life and started pollinating and found their niche. And yet there's nothing special about it. Please, don't give flowers to the woman in your life, because they probably don't mean anything as well. lol

ya someone here thinks bees are stupid they don't know any better, they are not aware of what they're doing just like some men in a bar. They just leave their dirt everywhere but shit happens.

Starting to wonder whether you need to see resp. a good science fiction movie, a counselor, a bee-whisperer, a woman from the sanitation department or sent you to the store to get more toilet-paper.;p
How about a hug... There you go!

Amoeba have senses also...they are not aware. "aware of what they are doing" as the avatar stated, suggests intelligence. insects do not have intelligence.

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.

<quoted text>There are two strong reasons for his front room window to be facing south. 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.
