    Watch this to see how fast a tree lights up. Now, imagine your 6 month old sitting in that chair. Now, imagine you're in the next room making dinner or something. There's no time to save anybody in that situation.

    Just get a plastic tree, and you won't have to worry about rescuing your family in 20 seconds before they are burned to death by the tree.

    Scary. Just plain scary.
