Default Moving Up The Food Chain

Many online forums have user titles tied to post count.

We do too. As you begin to contribute, we will be moving you on up our food chain as follows:

carbon 11-25 posts
unicellular fungi 26-50 posts
lungwort 51-100 posts
grub 101-250
salamander 251-500
heron 501-1000
fox 1001-2500
great horned owl 2501-5000
land steward 5001-10,000
earth steward 10,000+

Here are some links to familiarize you with the concept of a food chain:

http://library.thinkquest.org/J0113170/forest/food.html
http://usr-lazio.artov.rm.cnr.it/dar...2_image272.jpg
http://cmore.soest.hawaii.edu/cruise...d_web_full.jpg
http://king.portlandschools.org/file...b/Foodwed.html

So please know that if you end up hanging out as grub for a while, this is all in the spirit of good clean fun and we want you to know that that no part of a food chain can function without the others. The unicellular fungi is equally as important as the raptor.

Hooray, I found out what a lungwort is. At least the one I found is a plant. Don't think they grow around here(?) I do like and appreciate the food chain concept with the posts. Brilliant!

It is pretty cool and fun to evolve...there is also the possibility of a random title change by one of the powers that be.

As for the lungwort, I'm not too familiar with it, but tried posting a link here for you: http://www.wildlifegardeners.org/for...post99594.html There seem to be two plants that go by that common name...the one with spotted leaves looks like something one would buy in a nursery, but the ones pictured here look like they could have a wild distribution (just a guess here) like mosses: lungwort lobaria - Google Search

This is my last post as a grub. I'm moving on up.

Now that is a classy way to enter your salamanderhood!

Congratulations!

May I ask why you are the Hippie Gardener? Was there a hippie related discussion I missed? Flower power? Growing 'weed' in the back yard?

Hey, I am old enough, barely, to remember some of those days of tie-dye shirts, long hair, and 'give it to the man!'

Far out man. You forgot the MAN part! Listen to what the man said.
