Be Kind to Moth
A short comic based on this post that’s been going around.
Please be kind to our tiny friends? Moths are really harmless, and despite the fact that people freak out over them eating holes in your clothes? Only very few species do that, and it’s not even the adults. It’s their little babus who you’ll see munching away XD. Moths are harmless in pretty much every way shape and form, and things like candles and bright lights confuse their internal navigation systems. A moth in your home flying towards a light is literally terrified and confused. So be nice the the little cutie and just bring it ouside? :)
moths pollinate at night and are also food for our ever-valuable and vulnerable friends the bats!
Be nice to moths.
The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.
She is the future
Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?
Brilliant teenage GIRLS, specifically.
—Marie Antoinette (2006)
Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!
