Also, thanks to the wonderful moderators who tirelessly keep things like this from getting out of hand. 

Really though, the thread should be "Questions about shrubs and grasses" as palm trees aren't really trees.   8)

Oh and don't ever let someone from the Southeastern US try to convince you that "Palmetto bugs" are anything other than cockroaches.   A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but having a cute name for cockroaches is putting lipstick on the pig.

I wonder if we can find anyone on reddit who thinks the Darmstadt convention centre grows in Carcassonne?

Actually they accept gold on reddit.  :)

Oh and internet wisdom says that for every conceivable ridiculous belief there is a clique on tumblr perpetuating it.

Blasphemy! Pigs not only increase the value of your farm, but they can be pretty cute after all.  :@  :@  :@

From a country where ferns are native species, that ain't no fern.
It is a palm all the way.

Now that it's been determined to be a palm tree lets get down to the juicy facts. Palm trees aren't really trees, they're grasses. The "bark" of the palm tree isn't bark, it's dead leaves. And that concludes what I remember from by bio 2 course. Stay tuned next time when we learn how long some tarantulas can live without food.
