“Rafflesia arnoldii is the world’s largest flower having a diameter of about one meter and weighing up to ten kilograms. It is a rare flower and not easily located. It grows only once a year and blooms for around five days. According to researches in discovery news, this flower that looks and smells like rotting flesh is related to flimsy flowers like violets, poinsettias and passionflowers. Hence it also called as “meat flower” or “corpse flower”.
The flower is pollinated by flies and carrion beetles attracted by its vile smell. It contains about 27 species and found in Indonesian rain forests of southeastern Asia and Philippines. Rafflesia is an official state flower of Indonesia, Surat Thani Province in Thailand and Sabah state in Malaysia.”
Omg it’s a vileplume!
I’d love to see one sometime, but I’d rather not have to smell it. :-/
So, apparently HTC is now talking about buying the WebOS platform from HP (who has thrown in the towel in the tablet fight). Will this be a good thing? It would be nice to see WebOS used by a company that understands hardware.
