Trees are deadly

Not since J.R.R. Tolkien, or Canadian power trio Rush, have trees been seen as anything but leaky oxygen factories.

Environmentalists love them, sometimes chaining themselves to them in solidarity.

But did you know that trees are speculated by some to be stone cold killers?

Some say it's true.

The classic rock station on XM just played "The Trees" by Rush yesterday--the same day as your post. I haven't heard that song in years and then BAM!...two references on the SAME DAY.

And, just for the Geek Record, when the trees starting kicking serious ass in LOTR, and especially when they freed the river...that was, like, one of my top 3 favorite parts in the WHOLE TRILOGY.

Dave, I'm so sorry I'm going to miss you next week! Your gift is nearing completion but I doubt it would've been done by then anyway. I'll mail it and you can express your rapture in a more private setting.
