America, Fire, and Head: S minutes ago I think that every classroom in America should have a fire extinguisher. Hear me out on my reason why When a school goes into lockdown, each classroom is pretty much a bunch of sitting ducks. If an attacker gets through the door, the teacher needs to engage them. Fighting back is all you can do at that point. Arming staff members opens up a huge can of worms and potentially more harm than good. But, what about fire extinguishers? What if, when a school went into lockdown, every teacher grabbed a fire extinguisher? If you're up against the wall next to the classroom's door, you should have a split second to make a first move. Pull. Aim. If he gets in, squeeze. The attacker is now engulfed in a cloud of white smoke. The white powder (potassiunm bicarbonate and CO2 mix) is now in his eyes ears and lungs. He can't see, and his oxygen has just been replaced with CO2 that is so cold his throat is being freezer burned. At some point, he's going to drop the weapon. If he's not going gone unconscious yet, hit him over the head as hard as you can with the extinguisher. You WILL knock him unconscious. Evacuate and let authorities take over Is this a foolproof method to stop the increasing numbers of attacks in our schools? No, but a freaking $30 fire extinguisher, which will cost even less when bought in bulk, is a start. If we can spend $720,000,000 in Iraq every day, I'm pretty sure we can put a fire extinguisher in every classroom in America it's less than $1 a student.

When the Japanese honeybees detect these pheromones, a hundred or so gather near the entrance of the nest and set up a trap, keeping the entrance open. This permits the hornet to enter the hive. As the hornet enters, a mob of hundreds of bees surrounds it in a ball, completely covering it and preventing it from reacting effectively. The bees violently vibrate their flight muscles in much the same way as they do to heat the hive in cold conditions.

Comparable to corn. and remember, that’s the waste after you’ve harvested for fiber! Just to add, it can be used for paper, concrete, insulation, cloth and rope (both rough like sack cloth and smooth like cotton), bio degradable plastics (oddly same for banana trees I believe) and then of course for things like fishing lines and nets etc. It’s a very versatile and useful plant that has been used for hundreds or maybe even thousands of years for material uses, and with modern advances is becoming even more useful thanks to chemical engineering and similar.

#SaveTheTrees

I feel like an important message is trying to be communicated to me but I have no idea what it is

Our forests are being cut down 3x faster than they can grow! One acre of hemp produces as much cellulose fiber pulp as 4.1 acres of trees!!! This is super useful for so many things, especially paper production! In addition, hemp takes in carbon dioxide 4x as fast as trees do, which makes it especially valuable in the act of reducing CO2 emissions/greenhouse gases! 🌲🌲🌲 source
