    Perhaps it is like Poison Ivy's army in reverse... from person to plant.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    You know that scene in <em>Wizard of Oz</em> where they pick apples off the tree and the tree gets really mad about it?

    Wow, just wow. I'm with others here who are struck by the fact that this is a real person living a life with a family, etc. I hope they get him the treatments he needs.

    Jut think, with the wonders biotech will unveil in the next couple of decades we could end "Tree Man's" isolation forever by genetically engineering a version of HPV that will produce these symptoms in anyone it infects.

    This is what Brunner had in mind when he coined the term Age of Miracles.

    I heard about this a while back but I never went ahead and looked it up
    That's hilariously and disgustingly fascinating!

    I'm proud I didn't vomit after seeing Tree Man! And, that I live in a nation of medicine.

    I wonder what his supervillains would be like?

    The Groovy Gardener?
    The Angry Logger?
    Unemployed Captain Planet villains?

    I know, he'd make a good urban legend for teenagers.

    meant to mention days ago that there is a man in Romania with what appears to be the same condition, as shown on the WFMU blog. The people who grow horns on their heads also seem to have a similar problem with HPV, but much easier to live with. Different problem with a genetic immunity?

    Really liked making a connection to Ovid and Metamorphosis. Hadn't occurred to me.

    Is it terrible of me to wonder what Tree Man's genitals look like?

    And to wonder if his kids were conceived before he was infected?
