β(1→4) bonds, which get mechanically sheared when you make the dust.

"β(1→4) bonds"

I thought the leaves drew the sawdust up out of the ground. I did not know it had anything to do with the financial market.

Easy mistake to make.The leaves are air paddles that create the wind, you must have noticed trees brushing the air quite fiercely during strong winds?

Sawdust is held together with prayers. That's why the religious folk are worried when someone joins a different religion. If they get them wrong, all trees everywhere could fall apart. But more importantly, so could all your Ikea furniture.

Is this why every religion seems to want to conker the others?
Is it why we have Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Holly days etc?

What holds sawdust together? I was always told it was the woodworm holding hands - at least it was in my parents' attic. You can tell because when they sneeze they let go to cover their mouth and a little puff of sawdust comes out of their wormhole.*

Oh dear! Should I return my newly purchased plastic and steel office chair then? However, it would explain the constant supply of Office Furniture 2007 for that bloke Ballmer then ;)

Thats different. Metal shavings and plastic atoms are held together with apathy. :wink:
