    Apparently, being the only tree in that part of the wide-open desert (remember: there wasnít another tree for 250 miles around), wasnít enough to stop a drunk Libyan truck driver from driving his truck into it, knocking it down and killing it!

    Incredible! After watching David Attenborough's "The Secret Lives of Plants" I gained an immense appreciation for plants.
    Brad08 has some insight for people who don't understand... anything.
    This is so ****ing ******ed it's almost beyond belief. So, if you eat 3k, you will automatically gain 3k worth of fat or muscle? Incredible. And here I am eating all this food, yet maintaining my weight. Fascinating.

    You're one of those pussies that counts his almonds I bet.

    I can't even imagine that it's possible to really fathom what those things look like until you actually see it in person.
