End Hostilities: The Bug
So their is an entertaining bug going around the closed beta client with End Hostilities that makes it a really really ridiculously good
looking. For those who don’t know, the card usually is pay 3 colorless mana and 2 white, Destroy all creatures and all permanents attached to those creatures.
This bug makes it: pay 3 colorless and 2 white, Destroy all creatures and all permanents attached to those creatures. Your opponent discards their hand. Your opponent puts all creatures from their main deck and all of their sideboard into their graveyard.
This bug was heard about in the recent Brainstorm Brewery podcast.
Capone prided himself as a man with style. If he ever killed someone himself, or one of his henchmen killed an important person, hundreds of dollars worth of flowers was sent to the funeral. In one fight between Capone’s men and another gang, an innocent woman was shot, not fatally, and required hospital treatment. Capone personally paid for all the hospital fees. He also would pay for all children’s hospital bills when he visited.

"You know, Diana’s a princess, so shouldn’t she pay for shit from time to time?"
"Bruce, I contribute something far more valuable to the group than funding"
"And what would that be?"
"The ability to lift the mood every time you try to drag it down"
Bruce: Hey I have fun
What about that game night we had at my place
Diana: Oh Hera…

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
