Riding through the night
Soon every lupin in the land Will be in his mighty hand
He steals them from the rich
And gives them to the poor
Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore


Lupins! I'm sick to bloody death of Lupins!
Lupins to eat, lupins to sleep on, our bloody clothes are made of lupins!

Jedekai: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Is there a reason why you couldn't just take a pic of a tree with your smartphone, and have it identify the species? Much like a QR code or facial recognition software?

IRL I have a hard time figuring out if one leaf is Leafy Spurge and another is Lamb's Ear.

And I was in a Botany class for a year-and-a-half.


Good point. I refuse to use Version 1.0 Mushroom identifying software.

kroonermanblack: Has anyone made the same blind joke 40 times yet?


What, this one:

We were lost, none of us knew where we were. Then Harry starts 'feeling around on all the trees' and he says. "I got it we on Pluto", and I say, 'Harry how can ya tell?", and he says, "From the bark, you dummies!, From the bark"

Or maybe they could umm learn to identify a species of tree by leaf and bark like the rest of us oldsters.

Why use QR codes? Just print the name and let people Wikipedia it if they want to know what it is.

A dozen trees in Lenape Park are being fitted with codes that can be scanned with a smartphone or tablet.

In my day we had to read the words on the sign on the tree. Using our own eyes. With no mechanical aid but glasses. And if you didn't know a language that used the Roman alphabet, you were out of luck.
