Original message The world's 10 oldest living trees
At 4,841 years old, this ancient bristlecone pine is the oldest known non-clonal organism on Earth. Located in the White Mountains of California, in Inyo National Forest, Methuselah's exact location is kept a close secret in order to protect it from the public. (An older specimen named Prometheus, which was more than 5,000 years old, was cut down by a U.S. Forest Service graduate student in 1964.) MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Where is that YouTube of the Tree Huggers crying and playing a drum? I LOL whenever I see that one. Today you can visit the grove where Methuselah hides, but you'll have to guess at which tree it is. Could this one be it?May the FORCE be with you!

It reminds me of the Tree of the Dead from 'Sleepy Hollow.'
"(An older specimen named Prometheus, which was more than 5,000 years old, was cut down by a U.S. Forest Service graduate student in 1964.) MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Where is that YouTube of the Tree Huggers crying and playing a drum? I LOL whenever I see that one."
I've found a couple awesome parodies of that video.
In this first one, their meeting is secretly watched by a legendary comedy duo, either one of whom would probably have more functional brain cells than all the Tree Huggers put together:
And in this second video, one of the trees gives his own quite astute and amusing observations on them:

I notice they left out the oldest tree in Israel which if I remember correctly is over 4000 years old . . . .Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

God I hate hippies. Hate, hate, hate hippies. Seriously."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

The Scot tree was hilarious!"In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
