They tasted better, they lasted longer, they were more resilient and didn’t require artificial ripening. They were — simply put — a better fruit, because they belonged to a different species, or cultivar in banana parlance.
It was called Gros Michel and it remained the world’s export banana until 1965.
That year, it was declared commercially extinct due to the Panama disease, a fungal disease that started out from Central America and quickly spread to most of the world’s commercial banana plantations, leaving no other choice but to burn them down.

Years ago a journalist reported the news. Today... no such animal. Just reporters giving an opinion.
Used to be everything got smaller and smaller. Then they realized... no, people don't really want or need small. So then everything gets bigger and bigger. No where else to go so they decide to make thinner. Why? Sorry, that's beyond me.
But if they make it thinner they can't have a replaceable batt. And it seems more and more companies are pushing the thinner and not really stating you can't replace the batt.
Agreed. On the other hand... what plane can't tolerate a drone strike? Not really up on drones but seems to me the vast majority are smaller and lighter than a lot of birds. Bird strikes obviously aren't good if they hit an engine. But outside of that I'm trying to figger out what the major problem is. So did the drone encroach the planes airspace or did the plane encroach the drones airspace?
Years ago I learned never to trust MS with hardware updates. Don't know how many times a graphic card or lan update from them pretty much disabled the graphics card or lan.
There will come a day when some clown, nut, terrorist, whatever will stand on a bridge over a highway and push a button on his remote. And all cars will speed up and turn left. When there is no left turn. Computerizing creature comforts in a car makes sense. Computerizing, engine, brakes and things that can kill you... well, what are they thinking?
He's the real man behind apple. After all, he's the creator. Jobs only marketed it. (But he did do that well.)
If they didn't win then every newspaper on the planet would be scrambling to print the pics from these events.
There's a reason why linksys, D-link and others do pretty much the same thing.
The problem with ALL game trailers is... none of them give an idea of actual game play. Best thing to do is wait til someone posts some real game play on youtube. Then you'll get an idea if it's worth it or not.
About the only thing I can think of that a 3D printer would be useful for would be to replace a little leg that you might break off of your keyboard. Or maybe even make one that's higher than the original. But 3k for a printer or $30 for a new keyboard? I'm voting for the new keyboard.
5 loonies = 1 Spock? Kewl!
Well, I'm 68 and I got it all down. Just don't know where the hell I put it.
