Try telling that to snakes

Go on, try.

Our garden only gets sun in one tiny corner - definitely not enough sun to have a decent grassy lawn. So if we wanted grass we’d have to get artificial (or win the lottery and have turf replaced every six weeks)

:smiley: banana oil!
This is great

Have a bonus banana article

This is not the banana thread

Oh, that changes EVERYTHING!!!

Is this the “things that taste better to snakes” thread? Well, is it?

Yeah, as always there’s a caveat that sometimes needs must.

My mate with the fake lawn has shares in brewdog and is also a bit of a Tory. Now, I’m not saying you have to be a brewdog-sponsoring Troy to have a fake lawn. I’m just saying that’s what the science is telling us :wink:

:smiley: amazing.
“is not a formally adopted dose measurement.”
Well, it should be IMO.

I am vehemently opposed to fake banana, imo the worst of fake flavours. Now I know it’s some half arsed concoction I hate it even more. Total disgrace. I don’t like fake flavours or colours in food, would rather have a bland, washed out real flavour than some artificial stuff, like strawberry or chocolate flavour milkshake is weird because it’s really easy to make at home with the real stuff.

I love a cheese and onion sandwich, but if someone’s offering crisps round I’ll spurn cheese and onion and go for salt & vinegar

Additional banana fact especially for @ma0sm:.I once did a presentation on this paper in a literature review meeting

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/anie.200803189

Which is basically that a bunch of nerds realised that their packed lunch bananas fluoresce under UV light and that they fluoresce more if they’re riper, so let’s see if we can get a paper out of that.

How did it go down?
