I've seen Brazil nuts growing along the Amazon River just outside of 
Manaus.  At least two hundred feet tall and each 'cannon ball' is packed 
with sixteen nuts.  The large balls are practically impossible to open 
by hand.

Beware the tourist who walks under a tree that drops a nut.

Lets see 32 feet per second squared...
