    • PALMTALK PERVERT   02/01/2016

      Just a heads up to everybody - there is a "pervert" trying to crash PalmTalk with vulgar language and discussions of having sex with palms. It may be coincidence, but someone also called a palm seller I know and started asking him questions about "having sex with palms."  I have a possible name and location. His IP was from San Diego Cox and it geolocated to around Mesa College. I won't divulge anything else because sometimes this type of information is not accurate. But I do have a name and address. But I just wanted everyone to know, and ask that you inform me if you come across any information, or see anything that should not be on PT.

Snow in those areas can be a rare commodity because of low humidity. But when conditions are right it happens. That same area had snow in 1979. According to reports the locals say it's good for the palms because it kills a lot of the plant pests. Morocco, next door to Algeria, has ski resorts.

It looks more like Norway or Canada than Africa.
