The Bunya was a significant food source for the East coast Aborigines - with the fruiting season being a major event for many tribes, with messengers being sent hundreds of kilometres to announce the time. It is also a significant ceremonial and spiritual icon for those tribal groups.

And, being in Australia, it will try to kill you. Unusually, they require little treatment to be edible, and are (apparently - I've not had the pleasure myself) delicious and not poisonous at all.

So how do they try to kill you? Bunya nuts are the size of a football, and drop from the 30-45m tall trees without warning. Think coconuts on steroids and pointy. It is with good reason that the many of the tribes prohibited camping within the stands of the trees!

Naturally, this being Australia, some european thought it would be a good idea to grow one alongside a major road in one of the central suburbs of Perth - on the West coast.

JMS talks about co-creating the original She-Ra and the berks making a big deal of the reboot.

Yes, you read that right - JMS co-created the original She-Ra with Larry DiTillio.

Unusually, read the comments - some are absolute gold, with discussions of Sensible Armour, speculation about what the original name would have been before Mattel stepped in, and Ivanova.
