The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #286 - Waggle Danceathon

02.11.15

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight),
but it is generally not possible. Please plan accordingly.

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- inconvenient passageways
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- disorientation
- reorientation
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- karaoke
- geocaching
- full moon picnics
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-35 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

Waggle Danceathon


There are many theories to explain the decline of bee populations over the past
decade. Pesticides, for one, are a prime suspect. The nasty little Varroa mite is
another possible culprit. It could be a virus or a fungus or some combination
thereof. Selective breeding, which has led to lower genetic diversity, is a likely
contributor. It has even been suggested that electromagnetic radiation may be
at fault.

We here at The Passage would like to propose another theory: bee colonies
aren’t collapsing because the bees are dying off; the bees are just all out
exploring. Because, sure, bees are known for their eponymous “line,” heading
back to their hives along a predictably straight path. But that’s all a bit bit boring,
isn’t it? The bees have probably just given up on that whole hive mentality,
taking their previously communicative waggle dance and expanding it out into
a sort of flying walkabout, if you will. A wiggle, some loops: see the world.

Why shouldn’t bees have a little adventure too, huh?

(~18 miles, with hills and off-roading)
