I haven't watched this yet but I'm guessing this is going to be about the stinking corpse lily or some close relative of it.
Old_Zircon
Oh wow, this was so much worse.

-1 because I'm old enough to remember when National Geographic wasn't trashy, TLC style stuff like this.

Cena_mark
It doesn't seem as sophisticated as it used to be, but at least he didn't start talking about aliens.

Potrod
If you think this is TLC-style, you haven't watched TLC recently.

Rodents of Unusual Size
Yeah, TLC has basically become "Let's see what weird family we can exploit this week!" What are we learning? I have no fucking clue. Will I still tune in for the absolute worst aspects of our culture? Sure, why not.

So yeah, National Geographic is a beacon of information even when they send educated morons eager for attention out into the wild.

Cena_mark
I actually don't see the problem with this. Sure it comes off as a Jackass like stunt, but a demonstration gives the audience a far better idea of that plant's toxicity than just a description. He suffered for science.

Dr. Lobotomy
As there been any attempts to weaponize this thing?
The Mothership
get on it. Just remember to never touch it or breathe near it.

kingarthur
Stop zooming. Stop with the fucking zoom. Seriously.

HOLY FUCK WHAT ARE YOU DOING JESUS FUCK

From an Australian Geographic in the Gympie Gympie:

"Cyril also told of an officer shooting himself after using a stinging-tree leaf for “toilet purposes”."

Fuck. That.
Oscar Wildcat
Underbelievable. But what a story!

Robin Kestrel
Fuck that. Plants should not be able to sting you.

(Also, said plants should not look completely innocuous and have cutesy names. This thing should have yellow and black stripes and be called "death-leaf" or some shit like that.)

Just what kind of selective pressure leads to a plant evolving into a fucking nightmare for all creatures possessing skin, lungs, and assorted soft parts?
Sanest Man Alive
Machete-wielding day laborers, maybe? I got nothing. I think the better question is: what the hell is so precious in this plant that it needed to evolve its own glass powder for defense?
