CS, how about a banana fact?
Bananas do not grow on trees. They grow on plants that are giant herbs and are related to the lily and orchid family.


Anyway C, I did something very wrong and very stupid. See, death, especially seeing it happen, is very bad for me as I see these images in my head long (decades!) after. Clear as the heavens.

I watched a "home movie" (cellphones) showing in graphic detail this young girl being tortured, stoned and kicked to death by a mob of angry people. This girl married outside her religion. That's it.

There were a thousand people all having a go at her. Her face was covered in blood as she laid there, totally helpless and knowing this is it. This IS the end.

I watched it, trying to force my eyes away, but I was unable to do so. This also brings to mind all the other bodies I saw in my lifetime. All the pedestrian acidents and taxi crashes I saw. That guy getting his heap popped and splattered by the front wheels of a bus, and those picture perfect legs and bum, only missing the upper half of her perfect body.

What a shamefull waste.

My brother's wife's father also died this morning. I wondered where he was now. Death is scary shit. I only try to make it fun so that I don't fear it as much. Cuase I am scared to death, of death. I do not want to die. Ever.

I understand why you got rather pre-occupied about death, C-Max. Maybe the shift towards Bananas is a positive move ? There should be a bunch of banana jokes
