[quote] Arts and humanities are worthless for LSU. It should cut all of those and stick to the meat and potatoes.

haha I definitely won't be doing that. But, that is the kinda thing I'd love to go do with someone who knows what they're doing and can show me the ropes. Now, what real value is there in knowing the age of the trees is a whole different conversation. It's just interesting to me and seems li...
