Re: Bringing plants inside


According to my mother in law plants in a house are really dangerous because
they use oxygen. She became a real threat to all my plants so I had to
convince her that my plants are harmless to her daughter and grandchildren.

So I made a calculation of the bio mass of my plants, the oxygen production
and oxygen consumption of plants and a comparison between the processes in
humans and plants. The result of this complex calculation was that my mother
in law consumes more oxygen in one minute than 100 medium plants in one
year. And I have assumed that 75% of my mother's oxygen consumption was done
by her brains.

Although there is a possibility of a minor mistake in my calculation my
plants are safe now.
