We can water the trees with fractal fluid and see how long they live ..........

Congratulations, Marietta, for being a Tree City! I wish I weren't 2500 miles away or I would be right downtown to help observe and celebrate a fabulous city! When I lived there a couple of years ago, I didn't meet one unfriendly person.

Josh, The word "fractal" often has different connotations for laypeople than mathematicians, where the layperson is more likely to be familiar with fractal art than a mathematical conception. The mathematical concept is difficult to formally define even for mathematicians, but key features can be understood with little mathematical background.

So a jerk would get it.

I Like trees also. Josh has a fixation on whatever "Fractal Fluid" is. I think it is something that comes out of a body cavity.

Marietta is a lovely city with beautiful tree lined streets. There are enough parks and green spaces to make Marietta a more livable small city than many others in Ohio, as well as in many other states.

Why the mayor is basking though is beyond me. Has he planted one tree? In fact has he been a proponent of keeping the trees that we have in our parks? He has not. If he had his way, park lands would be sold to developers. He's a nice enough man if you're one of his friends appointed to various positions and boards, but really now, he's no Johnny Appleseed.
