you know, i was actually discussing on another messageboard whether they would get mad at me for taking a tiny slice and eating. :-/

problem is, i would probably get caught red-handed on the webcam. toby, maybe you can stand in front of the camera while i eat?

also, we should determine if the corpse flower is poisonous first, huh?

oh come on. there's no such thing as a corpse flower guard!

or i guess... maybe. there was that one tree serial killer who poisoned this giant ancient oak tree once and made everyone cry. i guess someone could have similar plans fo rthe corpse flower.

There's usually a skinny bald guy with glasses and a nametag standing near the flower when I check the webcam, so.. look out for him. Hopefully the thing will bloom by tomorrow.

Skinny and bald doesn't sound very imposing, fortunately. Also, it's a greenhouse so his glasses are probably constantly fogged-up and he can't see.
Speaking of fogged up glasses, I bet he has an unhealthy obsession with the corpse fllower, i.e. when no one's looking he puts his hand over the webcam and strokes the giant 6 foot shlonglike stamen repeatedly (glasses fogging up to a greater degree).

i guess some people in indonesia actually eat this flower anyway? (but the berries seem to be poisonous)

i found this:

PHILLIPS: So is there anything that we can take from it, you know, like for example, some plants we can get remedies from for sicknesses, or you know, make -- is there anything that comes from this plant that potentially could be interesting?

TRAGER: Well, that -- potentially. There is a lot of research yet to be done. We do know that many members of this family are edible. So there may be a potential food source there.

PHILLIPS: Really?

TRAGER: Yes.

PHILLIPS: Smelling that badly?

TRAGER: The tuber is edible, as well as parts of the flower.

PHILLIPS: Have you ever tasted it?

TRAGER: No.

PHILLIPS: What does it -- do you know what it tastes like? Has anyone described it to you?

TRAGER: Oh, I understand that the spadic (ph) was cooked up with chilies and chicken in parts of Indonesia, but I haven't tried it.


PHILLIPS: Oh, my goodness. And when you cook it, does the smell go away, does it get worse?

TRAGER: It probably goes away. But I don't know, I haven't tried it.

if Mia suddenly grew six inches, yes, I would find that exceedingly imposing.

notice that:

1. the corpse flower hasn't bloomed yet
2. the skinny, bald, bespectacled corpse flower guard is standing there do you think maybe he gets corpse flower lunch break?

no fucking way, mindspell...I saw a vintage clip of Tex Cobb when he was a boxer, he got the shit pulverized out of him, blood streaming everywhere, but HE WOULD NOT GO DOWN.

dude is seriously tough, and to quote Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, "I can't fight...I'm totally weak."

plus Cobb was in raising arizona, the BEST movie of all time.

I didn't say you'd kick his ass, I said you'd scare the ugly out of him. Cobb got his ass handed to him by Larry Holmes but he never quit, the man could take a punch.
