It's not a valueless plant

It's friggen useful. Just because people dont make proper use of it doesn't make it a weed.


I hate you all >.<

Some weeds have that characteristic yes but technically any plant can be a weed. A tomato can be a weed if it's growing in the strawberry patch. There is no particular species that are weeds everywhere. What is a weed in Australia isn't somewhere else. What is a weed in someone's lawn (like a dandelion) isn't in a dandelion patch.

weeellll if were gonna get technical :p what are viruses and bacteria? mis understood molecules? lol

what about thistles? bindy grass? locusts?
by valueless they mean youre not going to go to the shops and by some. can just see the bunnings guy now... "yea i want something that doesnt need watering and will take over my whole garden and lawn. oh and it has to stop other plants from growing as well"

fyi, even tv agrees. the round up ad that was just on shows a nice little yellow flower... then the voice over says "this is a weed, round up kills weeds" sad but true



ps. all vegetables are weeds imo

You got me. I'm going to pull out all the locusts out of my garden when I get home.

Anyway. Here's some fairy skirts

Lensbaby: http://www.lensbaby.com/lenses-controlfreak.php

Long story short: selective focus lens. Looks like a bellows thats had surgery Like photoshop happening before your eyes.

@mixxxy: Got my Lensbaby 3G a few moons ago (around june/july 08 ), from DigitalRev (ebay seller) it was $270AUD + $50 shipping. Since then I've bought the macro and wide angle add on kits. Its awsome for macro , i can get as close as i want and still shift and bend the focus to where i want.

funny looking contraption you use instead of a normal lens. if you like bokeh they its a must have
its kinda like a desk lamp where you can bend it as well to stretch the bokeh in different directions

im sure theres a more technical description out there :p

edit: there you go ;p
