Your Morning Cereal – A Quick Word on Bananas…Yep…Bananas

Did you know that if you separate bananas when you store them, they last up to 30% longer. It’s true. I tried it! Several websites  confirm that if bananas are pulled apart rather than left in a bunch, they don’t ripen nearly as fast! Besides, who wants to read the morning news about the BP oil ‘kill’ while they’re peeling a brown banana. That would be an appetite killer for sure.

Your Morning Cereal – Man Tries ‘Wile E. Coyote’ Rocket Car Stunt

The Arizona Highway Patrol discovered a pile of smoldering metal embedded in the side of a cliff (I told you this was a ‘Wile E. Coyote’ stunt…and I wasn’t joking.)

The wreckage was first thought to be an airplane crash, but it was in fact, a car. The type of car was unidentifiable at the scene. Later, investigators finally pieced together the cause.

An amateur rocket scientist, and I do mean amatuer, had gotten hold of a JATO unit (Jet Assisted Take Off), military rocket. These are used to give heavy military transport planes extra boost on short runways. He drove his 1967 Chevy Impala out into the desert, to a long stretch of road. He proceeded to attach the JATO unit to the car, and fire it. 

The results were unsuccesful for the driver.

It was determined that the driver ignited the JATO approximately 3.0 miles from the crash site. The distance calculated by the scorched and melted asphalt at that location.

The JATO, reached maximum thrust within 5 seconds, and a top speed of 350 mph, for a duration of 25 seconds. The driver, along for the ride and probably mercifully unconscious when the car hit the cliff in mid air, could only be identified by some scraps of hair and teeth recovered at the crash site.

The automobile did manage to stay on the straight highway for about 2.5 miles before becoming airborne for an additional 1.4 miles and impacting the cliff at a height of 125 feet.

Wile E. Coyote would be proud.

Just a few days back we posted a story about George Carlin and the award he was having bestowed upon him by the Kennedy Center. Unfortunately, Carlin died of a heart attack on Sunday at age 71.
