Reading that headline felt like getting a tooth pulled without Novocaine.

It should be open and shut once they Seymour evidence.

Fun fact: venus flytraps are native to only one location on the planet, and that is a small, roughly 60-mile radius area in the North/South Carolina region of the United States.

And will probably be extinct soon because people keep digging them up faster than they reproduce.

If you want to get a carnivorous plant, find someone who specializes in them. You'll get a better product. I know someone who will ship them by mail, and I'm really happy with the flytrap he sold me.

I just fact-checked you on that, and have no dispute.  However, I learn that there was a "naturalized" population established in Northern Florida.  Knew they were here, in swampy coastal areas, but didn't know they had become "naturalized."

Sounds pretty sinister, if that means what I think it means.  And by that I mean, a cool premise for a real cheap and cheesy sci/fi horror movie:  "Mega-Python vs. Mega-Plant."

Drop the mega-python and just make a movie about giant carnivorous plants that eat people. I would watch the hell out of that.

I forget when I found that out, but it was kind of surprising when I did.  I figured there was some sort of ideal climate, just didn't know it was  that idea.

Works for me, too.  Ok, so kind of life form was the "Swamp Thing" monster supposed to be, again?

Some species just aren't interested in world domination.

I learned it watching some nature documentary and it was definitely a jaw-dropping revelation.  I figured it was some tropical area like Central America or something.

This headline is so stupid and reaching way, way too far to be clever.. it really isn't amusing and doesn't actually make sense. Its so bad I want to cancel my totalfark and pour acid into my eyes...

I would too; they could have vines that sneak into people's yards, grab them (preferably hot women in bikinis while sunbathing) and then drag them back to the pod, where they are coated in slimy sap for eventual digestion...

There are millions in cultivation, but yeah, not unlikely they'll go extinct in the wild.

Pitcher plants are popular in flower arrangements, and whole populations are getting picked out of existence.

I think I thought the same thing.  What was odder is that I've been there (best friend's mom lives there) and it's not commercialized like you would think something like that could be.
