I know you've always been told 'stop and smell the flowers.'  I'm here to tell you DON'T DO IT -- IT'S A TRAP.

A rare blooming of a 'corpse flower' is expected next week on the campus of MSU.  The name comes from the flower's intense smell of rotting flesh.

The flower, which last bloomed four years ago, and a full fifteen years prior to that, can be viewed at the Plant Biology Conservatory from 10am to 2pm weekdays and from 1 to 4pm on the weekend.

Not only does the flower bloom very infrequently, it only lasts for a couple days when it does.  So, if you find the scent of death enticing, you may actually want to stop and smell the flower this weekend.
