Only 300? Those must be paczki lite. They are nasty imo. Especially the (very popular) custard and prune varieties

I miss read the label, probably from the sugar rush, only 100 calories from fat.
You can see from the label they are lovingly crafted from only the finest pure ingredients DuPont and Monsanto can supply.

Bananas generate antimatter.

So we find a big enough banana we can build a brain for Commander Data?

Would a positronic brain be made of cisistors?

If bananas generate antimatter, we can use them for the warp drive engines.

We'd need 30,000 pounds of bananas.

Sam Keane says fifty million bananas eaten would be enough to make you radiation-sick from effects of potassium-argon decay.

Of course, other sickening mechanisms come to mind.

Apparently not everyone can do this.

I'm surprised that isn't universal.

I can easily do it on command, but don't like the sensation. Probably because the muscle doesn't get much use, and so tires quickly, and the sound is annoying. So basically there is no up-side.

Usually I do it involuntarily. I'm going to have to pay attention to why that is. What triggers it.

edit: Or just read the freaking article and learn why I do it involuntarily.

I can't. First weird thing my body can't do. Quite excited by that news when a friend posted it on facebook. This physical freak business gets expensive, especially with age.

The article mentions that people who can't do it directly can do it with a big yawn.
