Useless Information... However Interesting

I was interested to read that they can make rubber out of Goldenrod plants. Apparently Henry Ford gave Thomas Edison a gift of a Model T Ford with tires made from the Goldenrod.

Thread or re-tread??? :smile: Plants, rubber, tires… Think about it. :wink:

Hi @Cowgirl & @Dawn_SD, this thread came from me watching a Michael Palmer video where he said his bees are working the Goldenrod. Curiosity got the better of me, so I googled it.

How about this…Bees sent into space on Challenger in the 80s built perfect comb in zero gravity :slight_smile:

Wow, amazing… I was discussing this very subject with my husband over the weekend. We were both laughing at the concept of bees swarming inside the international space station, and wondering how efficiently they could fly without gravity. :smile:

Little summary of a few experiments here:

Wow, what an interesting documentary:) I love the idea of the wicker honey strainer. I wonder if the old bloke tried to tell the young bloke not to eat too much honey. Maybe in his wisdom he let him go to learn the hard way.

It sounded like he gave him a gentle suggestion that perhaps was not heeded lol
