Why Shouldn't One Kill Flies?



DO NOT KILL FLIES. You may have read that in the ‘about us’ section under my name and been confused. I am going to explain myself and my reasoning. I have a strong belief that flies should not be harmed or killed, they are cute and friendly. Yes I did keep a pet fly. Why should you not kill flies?
    Firstly, they are cute. Have you looked at one closely and observed? They are tiny and delicate. Things people think are cute often include big eyes, and have you seen the size of fly eyes?!? The eye-to-head ratio is more than Baby Dory!!!
     For my next reason, I'm going to look at the opposing side: why should one kill flies? People usually answer one of three ways, 1) they spread disease 2) they contaminate food 3) there's like a million of them.
     Well, guess what? Humans spread disease too! And lots of other animals. Just look at all the sicknesses that came from Europe, brought by people, and affected the persons who lived in the Americas. Far more death than is caused by flies.
     And they contaminate food, huh? So do DOGS and people don't go around shooting dogs. They are forgiven, and flies are killed for doing less. Dogs steal food too, they don't just land on it, and people BRING DOGS INTO THEIR HOMES.
     Finally, there's like a BILLION people and while I am fully aware flies aren't made in the image of God, there's also millions of dogs and other such animals, whose deaths we cry over. Yes, flies have shorter life spans, I don't cry over fly deaths EVERY time, but I will try to prevent their death if it is needless by human cruelty. LONG LIVE FLIES!

Write like a Tudor

Today we make quills. And other cool stuff. *theme tune starts playing*



First of all a crash course in the history of writing implements:

4000 BC - hard tools on moist clay 3000 BC - reed brushes on papyrus (a type of reed woven and flattened) 1300 BC - metal stylus on thin sheets of wax 400 AD - metal stylus on thin sheets of wax, also wrote on parchment 600 - 1800 AD - quill pen on parchment (Pencil leads were invented in Australia and France but not used widely) 1800 - 1850 - steel nibs for quills emerges, metal pen patented 1884 - Fountain pen invented 1940s - Ball point pens (biros) were used widely 1960s - Felt tips invented
So Elizabethans. They included Shakespeare. Want to write like Shakespeare? First things first: you need a pen. And some paper. And ink.
Make a Quill For this you need a goose feather. Take a walk down to somewhere you know there are geese, like a lake. Take care to pick a feather big enough to write with, that's clean enough.
