Silly geographical comments (or whatever you'd call this)
A thread for stuff like "Meanwhile in Florida" and "Meanwhile in Poland". And anything else anyone wants to add, of course.
Since this doesn't really fit into the IJBMer Updates thread anyway, particularly when there's another conversation going.

so i guess here in Florida you can just be doing your own thing and then suddenly saws start popping out of the ground for no obvious reason
(FYI, saw palmettos don't actually have their "sawblades" until entire leaves have emerged. It's only the leaves' stems that have the serrations. Also they grow slowly. And they're spread by birds and other fauna. They're basically like palm trees with pointy leaves, minus the trunk, because they don't grow any higher than being a big mass of pointy fronds several feet high.)
