Pollen
For the past few weeks, you've been sneezing and itching -- and if not, you've probably been downing serious amounts of allergy medication. It's all thanks to the springtime reproductive habits of certain plants. We'll talk about the biology and physics of pollen.

@tsarstepan,
Pollen is so bad here in Louisiana. Vehicles are covered with a layer of yellow. When I sweep the porch I have piles of yellow. Yuck!

@tsarstepan,
I neither sneeze, itch, nor take allergy medication. Should I worry?

@roger,
The science video elicits awes and oohs rather then itchiness and sneezing.

@tsarstepan,
I was going to start a thread on this. I never had problems with allergies until I moved to Florida. The pollen count is so high here I’m having to take allergy medicine almost everyday.

@jcboy,
jc, you might want to get tested. You might only have problems with one type of pollen or tree or whatever. There are shots you can get, at certain times of the year or every couple of months.
Ironically, I have deadly allergies but I'm not affected by the seasonal stuff. Yay me..
