Around 2:45 you say that the workers are basically identical to the queen genetically speaking - but this is not true. Drones, male bees, are identical (as they are made from unfertilized eggs) - but workers receive half their genes from the queen and one half from one of the several drones she has mated with during her maiden flight.
It reminds me of white privilege, the extra attention schools give to "smart" kids, and the way that financially well-off children are able to go to better schools which then gives them higher outcomes. The distribution of "royal jelly" in our society is likewise quite random, and the outcomes are tragic.
This is a tale of destiny
After the death of the leader, a new queen is sought after. Some of the meager children become privileged from birth to take the place of their foremothers
They are fed with the highest quality nourishment to train them and see who, in a fight to the death, will succeed the throne and lead the people
Sounds like a dystopian amiright
For as long as we've been keeping Bee's which is all the way back past Ancient Egypt its pretty amazing how much we don't know still. Pretty funny when you open a really Old book and "Discover" something "new" as well, having a lot of fun with the hobby so far!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
