    You know, as a vegan I think PETA is fucking stupid. While their idea is cute and dream like, their execution is terrible and is a total embarrassment to all non bat-shit vegans. Also, how come you guys always stereotype vegans as crazy? The vegans I meet aren't crazy cow loving communists. If you're aloud to be pissy about a vegan telling you meat is murder I get to be pissy when a meat-eater tells me I'm going to die without meat. Which, happens a lot more then it should.

    I know that isn't the topic of this thread but its been brought up a few times.
    So tl;dr : Not all vegans are insane, and not all of us are on board with PETA and the way they handle situations

    I'm really not surprised about this, of course they need to communicate in other ways, plants have been around waaaay before creatures started roaming the planet, there's got to be loads more to them than what we know, they've been evolving longer than anything else.

    It all reminds me of something from when I was in infants school, we were given sunflower seeds in planted in a plastic cup, and I specifically remember a teacher telling me that if you talk to a plant everyday it'll grow faster.. being about 5 years old I believed her and talked to my sunflower everyday.

    My sunflower died :(

    Well, until we learn that earthquakes are actually caused by rock sex.
    I used to have a girl in my class that thought rocks grew and got kids.

    I read this thread shortly before mowing a lawn.

    After it I realized that the smell drenching my feet is liquid fear.

    I can just imagine cutting a cabbage from the ground, all the others around it detach and roll off.

    I must be the only one here who doesn't understand how the plants vibrate to produce the clicks.
    The article talks about soil being a good medium for sound, but never states/details a way for the sound to be produced.

    Think of plants as computer software. They are automated machines that has no intelligence but are programmed to react to certain situation. The software detects a hardware error, it will sends out an error notice. Much like the plants
    Huh, never really thought of plants as software tbh; they seem more like hardware and software together, since they're physical after all.

    I think they'd best be described as relatively simple machines with software dictating how they react to everything

    I don't get the purpose or how.

    How does it know a Herbivore is approaching? Do they see it, smell it? Plants don't have any senses.

    And why do they communicate with each other? "Herbivore is coming!" "Oh, alright thanks let me pick up my roots and run away."

    Plant releases toxins when bitten, other plants notice, release toxin as well.

    Isnt it painfully Ironic that the Mythbusters tested this several years ago and ended up proving it "Busted"?

    This is pretty cool stuff. I'm glad to know plants and animals are still outsmarting us with underestimated abilities.

    But why is everyone so smug about this? It's not as if vegans are doing you harm by not eating animal products, jesus. Besides which, the animals that vegetarians refuse to eat all have at least a central nervous system, if not a brain. Plants release sounds and chemicals when they are physically attacked, not equivocal.
