Scientists Discover Suicide Palm Plant In Madagascar
A 70ft-tall plant that commits suicide when it blooms has been discovered in a remote region of Madagascar...The palm sprouts a 70ft-long spire of tiny flowers once in its lifetime, dripping with nectar to beckon a host of pollinating insects.After blooming and fruiting, the plant's nutrient resources are completely exhausted, causing it to collapse and die. Although the palm flowers fatally just once, no one knows how long it lives.That's not suicide. That's like a man saving himself until he's old and infirm, marrying an 18 year old lap-dancer and dying from a heart attack on his wedding night at the point of ejaculation. Whatever you call it, it ain't suicide.
