Default Earth Nails: History of the Dandelion

Hi All,

If you have 11 minutes and 38 seconds of your life that you do not
know what to do with, this is a fascinating history of the Dandelion
from the History Guy:

Dandelions and Civilization

Death to Earwigs!
Death to Squash Bugs!
Death to Cheatgrass!
Death to Dandelions!

I kind of like dandelions. But then, I have distain for lawns, so
there may be a connection.

My wife gets stressed about them, so I at least try to pluck the
flowers to keep the plants in stealth mode.

same with Mom, she hates them. i don't really mind
them since they are not sow-thistle or any of the
other thistles or wild grape vines or honeysuckles or
speedwell or ...
