Run [to say a bracha on the] Forrest!

There is a list going around that has been posted on various corridor walls and bulletin boards across the New York school/synagogue circuit. This long list has many locations where you can say the bracha on blooming (flowering - not just leaves) fruit bearing trees.

The idea here is to promote people to go on a hunt across town in order to track down the proper tree to say such a bracha. To go and find, to seek out, to pursue a source, to say the Bracha Ha'ilanos.

In related news:
Currently, I am compiling a list of all the ugly people I know so that you have the opportunity to run after them and say the bracha on ugly and/or deformed/weird looking people.
