Colony Collapse Disorder....apparently a whole lot of bees are dropping dead in the United States. If there aren't any bees to pollinate fruit and vegetable plants we are screwed. Much to the surprise of many New Yorkers, we cannot live on diet coke and survive.
Some possible reasons for bees dropping dead - genetic engineering of plants, pesticides, other weird stuff that sucks.
The United States seems to be going to hell in a handbasket.
