The perils of Internet shopping. We meant to order 5 bananas and accidentally ordered 5kg. We now have enough bananas to stoke a medium sized elephant.

Someone on the cix conferencing system once complained that if they asked a serious technical question, they might have to wait for a response. But when they asked a question about the Banana Splits, they got about sixty responses in twenty minutes...

You're too young for them, aren't you? Or were they repeated?

Oh, BTDT with flip-chart pads. How many were in a pack was in very tiny writing, he says after receiving them all.

If [ profile] conflux is too young how come I remember them?! Guess they were repeated. Generally they were followed by the Monkees on holiday mornings when I watched them. And sometimes Take Hart. God I loved Take Hart. Why was I never in the gallery? Why?

Ah, ok. I was in the lower playground at primary school when they started here, which would make me 8 or 9, so the year was 1970 or 1971.

I think I can claim the youngness banana and *I* remember the dammed Banana Splits too - although I blame *your* generations retro-fetishisation (is that a word) of cartoons for my exposure to TBS when I would have been better off spending my time on Count Duckula.

Bananas r0XoR. Not only mashed up with milk for comfort food (yes, this is typically fed to infants with some rusks, my eating habits aren't that well evolved) and then chopped up with chocolate sauce or spread on pancakes, or even BAKED bananas! NB I have never tried baked bananas myself but they're recommended by Mr Slater. Mentalist.

And allegedly banana skins can be used to get high, if properly prepared.

(From the time we tried this, I can safely say that frying them is *not* the way to do it...)

Home made attempts to get high. Nothing like it. I remember T's home ground poppy seeds.

"It's opium!!" says he.

"It's bloody disgusting", say we, coughing and hacking and vowing newver to indulge in such nonsense again outside of the confines of an opulent opium den...

Got to mix em with a bit of tobacco and smoke it -

hard to keep light and you have be careful when drying the skins that they dont rot.

For another alternative... Eat SH*T loads (and I do mean Sh*t loads) of Nutmeg :-)


That stuff makes you loopy too.

(killer hangover though!!)

Considered inadvisable - there are some nasty lasting side effects.

The best, safest and most effective way to get drugs out of ordinary household items: sell the items on eBay. Take the money and go to your local reputable dealer, there to exchange them for proper bloody drugs.

*grin* i'm getting the feeling here that you disapprove of people inventing their own drugs. can't think why ;)

um, as a point of randomness, and not because i'm then going to dash out and buy some drugs, but what do you do if you don't actually know anyone who might know anyone who might know a dealer...? i mean, you can't just look them up in the yellow pages or whatever?

(yes, i am this naive...)

you'd be best advised waiting until you do know such a person, since you'll need their advice on the best and safest ways to use them anyway...

This is an urban legend. See erowid:
Banana peel: A sixties con-trick, banana peel and the other con of the period, saffron inspired Donovan's hit record, Mellow Yellow. Neither substance has any psychoactive effects whatsoever

And there I was thinking that it was inspired by Donovan's nasty habit of snorting turmeric inbetween turning out hippy anthems...

I'm 24.
I remember the banansplits somehow.

But for some reason they scare me and spook me out big-styleee. Like some sort of hidden child abuse done to the memory of the Bananasplits.

But I cant watch em.

[munch munch] We now have two fewer bananas.

I may be making banana bread on Saturday!

And even I remember the Banana Splits, which means it was still showing in 1980!

You're all ancient - I have no idea of these programmes of which you old fogies speak ;) *Anticipates many well aimed slaps*
Make chocolate bananas damn it! Melt chocolate (dark of course...), cut nanas in half, skewer with wooden kebab sticks, dip in chocolate and then put on baking parchment in the freezer. They'd be a great thing for your birthday party!
