Today there was a protest/riot in front of the building where I work. Finally! Although, I must admit, I thought I would be the one causing a riot within a 10 block radius of that place. Anyway, this dude on the ground, I assume, got pepper sprayed.
It looked pretty painful, convulsions and whatnot. My brother is in the RCMP and as part of his training he had to get pepper sprayed. He said it was the most painful thing he'd ever experienced. Until he had to get tasered. His words of advise: "If a cop is pointing a taser gun at you, calm down and do what he's telling you." Unless he's a bad cop I guess.
My co-worker seemed to think the cops were being rough, but I did not see any evidence of that. Yes, some dude got pepper faced, but I don't know what happened before that, so it may have been warranted.

So I watch it for awhile because I don't even need to find out that I'm allergic to bee stings. It's wandering around totally bee drunk. It would move a bit, then stop and raise it's wings. Then move a bit, lift it's front feet up and down.
There's a garbage bag at the bottom of the window to prevent a draft, and he was walking along it, then he'd randomly fall off. The window was open, but he did not seem to realize. I called my co-worker in to check out the drunk bee. I was all "Aren't their feet supposed to be sticky, hence being able to stick to walls and whatnot?" When he fell off the bag yet again, I was getting weirded out by it, like it might go crazy on me at any minute.
So my co-worker managed to get the bee to walk onto an envelope and then she tossed it out the window. I thought "Maybe it lost it's stinger and was dying" and chalked it up to that.
About half an hour later I hear a sound. Our office building has mice, so I'm looking around for a mouse and trying to place the sound. It's coming from above.
