  •  Redwoods are more than just tall. (0+ / 0-)

    You're changing your argument when you talk about how far away Hawaii is from Minneapolis.

    The vastness of the Great Plains is awe-inspiring.

    Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers, though.

    •  No, it's incredibly boring seeing the same thing (0+ / 0-)

      The "redwoods are more than just tall" is again that annoying Ameri-centrism.  As though the giant eucalyptus species (such as Eucalyptus regnans) are not likewise "more than just tall".  As a random example, these "mountain ash" forests have been determined to have the highest density of carbon sequestration in the world.  I bet you had never even heard of the giant eucalyptus before this post, given how ameri-centric your knowledge comes across.

        I mistakenly assumed you were the person who had been writing previously (the one who called my post "crap"), before I checked the names.  Had I noticed that, I would not have used such a harsh tone.  My apologies.
