im sure that most of you open bananas from the stem end. you either use a knife or a fingernail to make a slit in the stem, or just kind of yank back and forth until the peel splits open. like this:



well let me tell you, you couldnt be more wrong. dont worry, im not hating. i used to be a poor misled sap like the rest of you until about a week ago. until i took a lesson from monkeys. maybe they like to throw their own feces, but in the case of opening bananas they couldnt be anymore on the money.

you see, monkeys open bananas from the other end. like this:



now you might be saying to yourself that 'ive know about this for years, this isnt new'. well shut up hipster, no one cares. you might also be saying to yourself, 'this is inconsequential and insignificant'. well let me tell you, next time you open a banana try it the monkey way. just barely pinch the brown knob end and it splits open. then pull the peel apart. its all one swift motion. no yanking, no mushing of the banana.

for a better explanation, refer to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBJV56WUDng.

no go forth, and never open bananas incorrectly again!

You also have a nice convenient handle so you can hold it similar to the way posh folk hold a wine glass.


But I knew about this before it was famous *puts on scarf*

I love bananas I used to eat them all the time.....................................then my mom got a job. But thanks for that tidbit.
#14
Like you noted TS, I knew this already.

Problem is, opening it like that gives the bad end to start with. The bit that's all blackened and mushed. I'll continue opening it wrong, thank you very much.

In 5th grade I decided to open a banana the monkey way because, well, I was in 5th grade. My life has been different ever since. It's so much easier.
#17
it's easier to just pull down on the stem, that way you don't get your fingers all banana-gooey.
#18
Wut. I've eaten bananas like that since forever. Who the hell would be stupid enough to try to open them from the tougher, stem side?

It's easier to get into. I don't know why anyone would do it how TS described (using a knife/nail), but from my experience it opens perfectly if you just pull back on the stem, because that causes a split. If you continue pulling, it peels itself.

I use my teeth. It takes probably less than a second, and I don't get any of the mushy black stuff because it gets pinched off.

I don't see how monkeys could open a banana this way, considering bananas don't occur in nature. They were bred by humans, relatively recently. Bananas are the in-viable offspring of two species of plantain.

I've always done it this way, I thought this was the normal way to do it.
