Lucille Pope's red oak tree has baffled tree experts, water specialists and nursery professionals. The knotted, towering tree, more than 100 years old, has become the root of scrutiny in her East Side neighborhood. The tree has gurgled water from its trunk for the past three months. 

Pope, 65, has sought answers from several specialists, calling experts from the Texas Forest Service, the Edwards Aquifer Authority and nurseries for an explanation. They've combed her backyard, probing the gnarled tree that leans away from a parked white 1980s Cadillac. After snapping pictures, doing taste tests and conducting preliminary studies, they're still working to give her a definitive answer.

There is no such thing as magic. But freak accidents do occur.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/19/06 - 6:03:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
That is neat! But I doubt it is magic. Maybe the root hit a spring or something.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/19/06 - 6:04:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I saw this on the local news a few days ago... I believe it was just a broken water pipe.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 8/28/06 - 11:55:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
magic doesnt exist
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 8/28/06 - 12:01:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
It could be.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 7:02:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not magic, just weird.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 7:08:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's not magic, it's just crying.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 7:10:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Magic? No.
Odd? Yes.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/6/06 - 7:13:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
No such thing as magic.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/9/06 - 4:12:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
If you mean magic as in wonderful, cool, etc, yes. If you mean magic as in Harry Potter... no.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/9/06 - 7:25:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Magic doesnt exist.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 1:42:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. There's some sort of scientific explanation. We just don't know what it is yet.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 4:05:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
Magic doesn't exist?


Screw you guys.

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 4:07:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
Something weird is going, it's not magic.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 9:49:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I were a "magic tree" I would do something much cooler than suddenly springing a leak.

So no, it's just weird, not magic.

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 10:12:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't say magic.

I agree.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/27/06 - 5:00:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
LMAO.

No.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 10/20/06 - 11:42:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Woo I want a tree like that!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/23/06 - 8:57:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
This reminds me of the movie "Tuck Everlasting" the Tuck family drank the water and became immortal
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/26/06 - 7:50:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like to think magic exists. I know personally I've seen some things that cannot be explained factually.
Magic could be real.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/25/06 - 9:40:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's odd, for sure... I wouldn't say magical unless it starts spewing out gold.

15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/19/07 - 10:44:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't say magic, but maybe a freak accident. It's still cool, though.
