    64 points for the first correct answer:

    Loosely translated from Greek, this tree's scientific name means "Food from God". I need to know:

    1. The scientific name of the tree

    2. The common name of the tree

    3. What the tree is used for


    Good luck, lads.......

    That tree surely isnt from the gods, haha. Go find one and smell it, smells like crap not to mention the fact that the tree is quite invasive.

    Dont mind me Im just a horticulture major so I study trees.....

    I refuse to contribute to your delinquincy. How about a nice Canmore t-shirt?

    BTW, your offer to help would be much appreciated. Plus it would give all the other slackers a fighting chance........:rotfl:

    Smoking is bad for you. Therefore you are treating your body deliquintly, or something equally as bad, just in case deliquintly is not a word.

    C'mon, you'd look killer in a Canmore t-shirt with some mountains and a moose on it.......

    Yup. And I'm not, because several Russian researchers have proved that vodka is actually good for you. Those same researchers found that mixing vodka with cigars is even BETTER for your body.

    In my basement, cooking me up a batch of vodka made from Idaho potatoes. They also brought along a couple of Cuban girls who know how to roll a mean cigar.

    It's a good thing I installed all those bunk beds last year, eh?
