Huh! Running out of puns already eh! I suppose yew can't cedar wood for the trees. Ash a pity, we do seem to get a treemendous response to a good pun filled thread. Oh well, never mind, it is supposed to be a science forum, so lets get back to matters scientific, like perhaps doing some logarithms!!!

I wouldn't mind sitting petrified, I'll do anything for-rest.

I object to shooting trees. (Nice one LeeE) It goes against the grain for me.

Now this is interesting.  In theory it could be possible for it to germinate, because to germinate a seed doesn't need light.  A plant needs light to create food (photosynthesis) which leads to energy.  All the energy that a plant needs to germinate is stored inside the seed as endosperm.  Which would then therefore mean that it could"grow inside him".  However once its stored energy that it had to start with was gone it would need a light source, and, as there would be none inside a lung, would die.

A pine seed is quite large, I doubt anyone could breath one in without noticing. It would make you cough quite violently. Also those needles are not the leaves of a seedling and the bodies defences would have attacked and destroyed it.

Quite apart from that, I do not think the seed could have found the track here (TRACHEA) ..... Oh my oh my, not another silly pun!!!

I quite agree with you.
