魔芋大道-二景
Kaohsiung

柴山上的魔芋有兩種,一種叫台灣魔芋,高度只有30~40公分。另一種就是如巨人般的密毛魔芋,最高紀錄高達284公分;它們很特別,開花時不長葉,長葉時不開花。密毛魔芋自花芽冒出地面後,約20天左右即盛開,散發出腐臭的氣味,吸引蠅類、小甲蟲等逐臭之蟲來幫它傳粉,為了提昇對蟲兒的吸引力,密毛魔芋的佛燄苞還模擬了鳥糞的顏色和紋路呢!

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
