The banana is dying!

It's true! In five to ten years the banana might be all but extinct! I've been in a perpetual state of shock since I found this out yesterday afternoon. Turns out that a new string of the the evil fungus known as the Panama Disease is spreading through Asia, killing off the banana, and it's just a matter of time before it a global banana holocaust is a fact.

This has actually happened before, to the first variant of bananas that was produced and exported worldwide - that banana died in the fifties. It was a larger better tasting banana than the one we know today. The evil banana companies had to conquer more and more land that wasn't contaminated, and the era of repressive Banana Republics began. They eventually started growing the banana we know today, since it was resistant to the disease, however mediocre it was in comparison with it's predecessor.

And now it's happening again. The bananas we eat are all the exact same variant, that's why it's so cheap, all production and cargo ships are the same. And when the disease strikes the whole monoculture dies. There are thousands of varieties of the banana, but they all need different treatment to stay fresh until they reach your little mouth in your non-banana-growing country, and the whole industry is built to fit this one.

So prepare yourself for new banana wars, and a future where you'll have to pay a hefty price for perhaps weird little red or green bananas, or start growing your own.

Hear the story on Scientific American's podcast - Can science save the banana?

Web comics - the uglier the better
I just found another nice and amazingly ugly web comic, to create a harmonious magic little triangle of great and ugly web comic pleasure.

The first one I found was the superbly named XKCD:

Philosophical and scientific nerdiness in stick figure form. Don't forget to hover your mouse over the comic for some bonus material. That goes for the next one as well:

Dinosaur Comics:

This is my absolute favorite, I can't get enough. The drawings always stay the same, the topics are pretty much the same stuff that goes through my mind when I'm trying to fall asleep, or conversation I and Leo might have on a sunday brunch.

And here's my latest little yellow friend - Super Mega:

Escape from New York

Sundays always call for a treat. This one I feasted on John Carpenter's 1981 hit Escape from New York. Things I had forgotten since I last saw it about 10 years ago:

- It starts with terrorists hijacking Airforce One and crashing it into a Manhattan skyscraper
- Isaac Hayes is The Duke
- It has fantastic green wireframe 3D graphics - which were not created with computers, but with models, reflective tape and blacklight
- It had an epic poster, that clearly inspired a little scene in the recent Cloverfield
- The president survives the plane crash in a big orange protective egg

Here's the trailer, including 3D plane crash:

And here's Robert Johnson & Punchdrunks playing the theme in Stockholm 2002:
