i have that nasty stuff all over my back yard near the lake so i'll be interested in seeing what it is. just to see if yours acts like mine, can you brush the seeds off with your hand? i mean, it's not like stick-tites or beggar lice, right?

You are right; this is Hackelia virginiana, also known as Beggar's Lice or Stickseed
