Attack coconut palms

15 Oct

On a recent trek in the northern part of our adopted country we did some pastoral training at a local hotel. As we walked to our meeting room this sign caught our attention. A falling coconut can do some damage to unprotected heads, but we didn’t know that coconut palms in this area were a bit more aggressive. It appears that the palm rears back like a catapult and flings its projectile far beyond the reach of normal gravity’s pull. Or perhaps we may be interpreting the sign wrong?
