For every stupid move we make at nature, you can bet that she will get some payback in a big way! The one thing that man can do better than nature is show his stupidity! That's a contest man will win, hands down!
David Grundman had two things: A shotgun and a massive need to shoot at things. So one day in 1982, David drove into the desert with his friend, in order to go nuts with his weapon. He opened fire at some small saguaro cacti (large, vaguely man shaped cactus plants), obliterating them with his shotgun shells. However, destroying small saguaros was way too easy: He needed a bigger, more powerful target.
So Grundman focused his attention on a huge, 26-foot (7.92 meter) saguaro they found nearby. He opened fire at it, and with just one shot managed to blast off a whole, massive chunk of the plant’s “arm.” Some accounts report he even started shouting “Timber!” as the cactus fell, although he only got as far as “Tim–” before he was interrupted.
In an impressively instant case of revenge on the part of mother nature, the wounded cactus fell directly on Grundman and crushed him to death.
Does it ever seem to you that mankind is bound and determined to destroy everything around him? It's as though we aren't happy unless we are tearing things apart! Guess this story proves that sometimes it's best to try and play nice...or else!
Coffee back in the kitchen this morning. The rain came back late last night!
