If music is the most universal language just think of me as one whole note. Nikki Giovanni

I was walking around the campus where I work the other day, and a couple of trees were cordoned off with yellow police tape. The grounds keepers doing tree maintenance said the trees, which were really tall, had some heavy pine cones that they were cutting down. They gave me one that had been cut down, and it weighed at least 10 pounds and was very dense. The trees were roped off because if one of the cones broke loose and dropped down from about 25 feet on to someone's head, it would probably kill them. So I had to go back to the office & google Bunya tree. This is what I found:
The Huffington Post UK - Giant PineCone Warning: Australian ... www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/03/05/giant-pine-cone...
We have a golf course where my high school team regularly practiced at, awhile back a palm fell off a tree on the first tee and implailed someones leg. As one could imagine, this led to regular maintanence, but we still eyed that tree suspiciously at tee off.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
