    Musical Fertilizer?

    Alright this is for the headbangers...or anyone interested. Heavy metal music BOOSTS the growth and SIZE of PLANTS. Mythbusters did an experiment using peas isolating several groups in separate greenhouses. Each group (minus the control which just had natural greenhouse conditions) had a set sprinkler giving each pot of peas the same ammount of water. What the peas were "listening" to were nice words, insults, and death metal (don't know what song) for 24 hrs a day for several months (if i remember right). The results were that the Headbanging peas produced a larger plant, heavier, healthier, larger crops. The others were no where NEAR as good. Thoughts?

    Yes, i saw this a few years back and I was thinking of doing this for my cps, although I would be using "kind word" heavy metal so my parents dont hear. But i will try that sometime.

    i think they should redo the experiment again...as you remember they did run into a significant hiccup while running the experiment. maybe it was because of the high frequency of beats perhaps? moved the soil around so roots could grow faster? anybody want to experiment using drum and bass?

    what kind of metal would be best? prog? death? thrash/speed? maybe artists? early Metallica(including the later St. Anger album...AWESOME)? Slayer? Cannibal Corpse? Dream Theater? Disturbed?

    the list can go on!

    lets put some John Mayer or GooGoo Dolls on. relaxed chilled out plants? Nirvana maybe? would plants revolt and grow down if we play RATM?

    oh the sleepless nightss of a college student....

    i love Ax7... but their music style is so... unorthodox. metal metal...ballad... metal. just like Death Magnetic from Metallica. strongly do not prefer than album. everyone hates St. Anger... but its probably my favorite album. the passion behind St. Anger, Frantic, Invisible Kid... its epic.
