I remember once in 2nd grade, there was a MASSIVE tumbleweed.. It was probably around 6 feet high and wide. Us being, you know, 2nd graders were amazed by the thing. The wind was blowing pretty hard and pushed it up over the fence, and it began hauling ass toward some of us. I got out of the way, but it took my friend and two other people out before it stopped it`s rampage. Was funny to watch him get all the needles plucked out.

I`m pretty sure this is in Antelope Acres, near Lancaster, CA and near my home. I`ve seen something like this, but not so huge, before. I`ve heard that tumbleweeds come from Russia but once they got started here, they spread rapidly. It`s easy to see why. If I were six years old and watching this, that`s exactly what my reaction would be. Those of you who don`t like it, don`t reproduce and you`ll avoid this kind of annoyance and improve the gene pool.

I would love to have been there watching that with my son (SO cool!), but other people`s children make me glad my computer has a "mute" button.

> Tumbleweeds, as far as I know, are just dried up bushes that dislocate from their roots and get blown around by the wind.

Lol not quite but close. Like everything in nature, there is a purpose/design/whatever. The tumbleweeds retain their seeds - instead of throwing them onto the wind like some plants, they entire bush expands then dries out, rolls all over the prairie, dropping seeds as it does.

Reminds me of one of those old hokey horror movies "Attack of the Killer Tumbleweeds"!! I used to live the mojave desert and we would get lots of tumbleweeds but I never saw them do this...maybe these are aliens??!!

A tumbleweed once rolled onto our playground at recess time in elementary... One boy left theplayground with a chipped tooth after everyone was wrestling for it.

Those kids laughter was so fake and forced. My son does it sometimes and I tell him to knock it off and he stops instantly. I totally felt like telling those kids to shut up while watching that >:|

Also, that is the most bizarre thing I`ve ever seen, what ARE tumbleweeds??

In case anyone outside Australia wondered why the Rabbit Proof Fence was built in the first place, imagine this video, with rabbits instead of tumbleweed. Then imagine it happening every day of the year.

I listened to the whole video, not nearly as annoying as you guys think. Just be glad it`s laughter and not screams.

Also, just what the heck ARE tumbleweeds anyway? Some sort of plant that reproduces by traveling in the wind spreading seeds everywhere? Or is it really just random weeds that get blown around?

Reminds me of parts of east Oregon/Washington.
Certain times of the year when the weather is windy, the tumbleweeds will get stuck in wire fences along the highway and there will be miles and miles of "tumbleweed fence". I bet its a pain to unclog.

I`ve been in sandstorms like thiat before. Best thing to do is pull over like that one car in the video had done. Tumbleweeds can get hung on exhaust pipes or you catalytic converter and burst into flames.

Yep, its the annual migration of the herd. Those bison have sure come back from the brink of extinction since they learned to disguise themselves as plants and roll.

This isn`t nearly as cool to drive through as you might think. Some tumbleweeds might be 4 feet high. The best road trip involved when the trantulas migrate. They "pop" and fly into the air if hit just right...

Just don`t break down.

Yes, don`t you envy where I live? I grew up watching the wall of dirt before a thunderstorm hit my house and shake the entire building.

That`s insane. There were so many of them! I wonder how that many tumbleweeds can join the same army? o.o

The kids, btw, ..yeah, it was sorta funny at first but the obnoxious, forced laughter was irritating. Mute was certainly necessary.
