I'm pretty sure I'm worth atleast SIX goats... 
Let's share all the facts we can about our favourite yellow fruit!

1. If you stare long enough at a banana it still won't transform into Barack Obama.

2. It gets its yellow colour from somewhere.

3. A banana is not a biscuit.

4. Bananas are that shape just because.

5. You can actually eat them.

7. There are more types of bananas other than the regular yellow one. Banana types are called banana cultivars.
8. Kids with good fantasy can imagine bananas as guns.
9. Some people think bananas are overrated.
10. Banana peels left on the ground are dangerous.
11. Eating too many bananas can cause blindness.
12. Fact number 11 is actually made up.

@Skurn:
I'm just dropping in briefly between assorted RL crises. Sigh… I think it will be months before I get back to working on my current dmod and/or being a more active member here or on Discord.

I'm impressed by your additions to this (admittedly somewhat silly) discussion Skurn. You are actually contributing established (but somewhat surprising) scientific facts about bananas! I assumed that you would just blurt out some nonsense about ponies. But I guess you saved that for the other thread in our forum.

15. For some time now a disease that almost wiped out commercial production of the banana in the 1950’s has come back and is seriously threatening the world banana supply. Mostly because of #14 above (lack of genetic diversity), the bananas have no resistance to the disease.

@SlipDink Don't worry friend, take care of yourself and your problems first, we're all patient and we'll still be here whenever you have time.

As for my contribution to banana facts... <ahem>

16. Let it be known that on this day I ate no fewer than 5 bananas! This is not a joke.

Second this. RL comes first.

17. Bananas and rum are jummy. So I mean 'bananas eaten at the same time with rum'. Technically you can't eat rum, but you can ingest it at the same with a slice of banana or mashed banana, and then it's really jummy.
18. Boys seem to have more often bananas than girls do.

O yeah, and:

I'm just dropping in again to see how the gang is doing. At this point, I'm still swamped by SEVERAL things RL. Why does it seem that so much goes wrong all at once? Sigh...

... anyway, this is just to let you know that I'm not gone from the DN for good and still not dead. :-} I really do plan to get back to working on dmods again. But not yet. Sigh...

... I think I can see a light up ahead at the end of the tunnel. I hope it is not an oncoming train.

20. Potassium. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium. Potassium regulates the heartbeat, ensures proper function of the muscles and nerves, and is vital for synthesizing protein and metabolizing carbohydrates.
21. Bananas are high in vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 plays an important role in mood regulation. Maybe I should eat more bananas.

I hope things turn out for the better for you, SlipDink. But yeah, like you said... you should eat more bananas considering the facts you stated. Even if things do go wrong at least your heartbeat will be normal and you won't be stressed out.
