KUDZU BLACKOUT!

Our nation is experiencing numerous blackouts due to the 2014 winter storms. In fact, there are currently severe weather warnings in Atlanta due to an expected ice storm, for which I’ve heard there might be up to 1 1/2 inches of ice which is expected to cause blackouts.

It’s been shown that 9 months after such blackouts there is an increase in the number of babies born.

Winter storm aren’t the only danger causing blackouts in the south. Read on…

Our family lived in Stone Mountain, Georgia (an   Atlanta suburb) for three years in the 1980s. I was sole proprietor of a   craft etc. company and wrote a booklet about a prolific southern plant,   KUDZU, to accompany the craft line. Below are excerpts.

—NEWS   BULLETIN!—

The   southeastern section of the United States must prepare for sudden irregular   population spurts in future years. These spurts will coincide with   unpredictably timed energy blackouts. Women are being forewarned to prepare  for these blackouts so as to prevent mini-population booms, which would occur   predictably nine months following each blackout.

Although   the causes of the projected blackouts might be increased energy demands,   electrical storms, power plant break-downs, etc., the major culprit is   expected to be Puerraria Lobata, AKA the “green menace,” or KUDZU. Kudzu ,   known as the “mile-a-minute” or “foot-a-night” plant, reaches its elongated   stems up to several hundred feet or more, entangling itself in electrical   lines and transformers. Kudzu has become the worst known menace the power   companies must deal with.

Women, be   prepared!

NOTE: Pennsylvanians, be prepared also, as the invasive kudzu takes root on your soil.

NOTE:   Kudzu is a plant native to Japan and southeast Asia to the Himalayas and some   Pacific Islands. It was introduced to the U. S. by Japan in 1876 at the   Japanese pavilion of the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. Its use was   encouraged for ground cover and animal food until it was discovered the vines   took over wherever it was planted and the animals disliked it.

The   question remains: Is the story Jack and   the Beanstalk actually about a boy who became careless with   KUDZU?
