Re: Whats the deal with bananas? o.0?

There's a big thing about honey as well. There's some sort of plague that's harming bees all over the world and honey may run out in a few decades. Unlike bananas, honeybees are not a monoculture. Because of this, it's highly unlikely that colony collapse disorder will wipe out the entire species. ...

Haha, yes, I always find the "banana" argument to be incredibly funny, since bananas are actually the proof of evolution.

Also, in the words of Jesus&Mo, "Coconuts are satanic"

Re: Whats the deal with bananas? o.0?

bananas are sterile, they are reproduce by artificial means. They are consequence of artificial evolution Wild bananas are weird-looking (not round, but not banana-shaped), green and full of seeds. Through artificial selection, plantains came to be. If I remember correctly ( And Im not sure I do), a...

Cthulhu? ha! That guy parks BHG's car for a living!

Re: Card Counting -- has anyone ever tried it?

A few years ago, I used to compete with two friends: One of us would quickly draw one card after the other, and the other two had two count and guess what the last cards were (for example, "there are 3 cards left, the count is on -2, so there are two -1 cards and one 0 card.")...After some...
