Plantophilia

Hence, this year there is special attention paid to underprivileged plants, with the motto:

Respect

So, in celebration, let’s respect our plant brethren. They’re often at least as intelligent as some people you know: have you ever noticed how a sunflower tracks the movement of the sun? Think about it. They’re also quiet and, while generally are not good conversationalists are better behaved than many human children.

  • Memorable: it’s shaped like the AT&T logo.
  • Spherical: which makes it convenient for those “round the world” trips and has a much more pleasing shape than where we came from. Did you ever wonder why we called the previous generation “squares?” Think about it.
  • Great restaurants: and great atmosphere, unlike, for example, the Moon which has great restaurants but no atmosphere.
  • Oxygen-Nitrogen atmosphere: so crucial for those of us who breathe, and better than methane in so many ways.
  • Gravity: which is set at a convenient “one-g,” quite handy for keeping everything in its place.
  • Neighbors: usually far enough away that they don’t bother us much, and those who do are generally more intelligent than average, needing to understand things like calculus, tachyons, and superluminal FTL dynamics for hyperspatial physics.
