    schloaty,
    Are you suggesting karate class for my kids or do you mean I need it to protect myself from my kids? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    ** head popping up like a ground hog **

    Someone talking about martial arts?.... Must, speak...

    Oz, Schloaty is right... under the right instructor, the martial arts require much physical and mental discipline. A traditional school will also adhire to etiquette and protocols very tightly. Japanese based arts like Karate, Jiujitsu and Kendo (art of the sword) tend to be the best for teaching discipline.

    Back on topic... this plant sounds cool, but I don't think I'd like to have one. Annoying as heck to replant and work with.... hehehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    I knew somebody was going to take me serious, but as I said before I'm only joking. There's no need for Karate. My kids are not quite that bad yet.
    I do want to thank you for your concern though.
    Thanks guys

    about stinging trees, here's a quote from Fantastic Treesby Edward A. Menninger.
    "F.M.Bailey reported finding specimens with trunks 10 feet in diameter. Bushmen avoid these trees as they would a plague, for the young leaves particularly, and also the branchlets, are covered with stinging silicone hairs that inject formic acid into the skin of anyone who touches them. The result is intensely painful. Dried leaves of the tree causes violent sneezing"
