How to Correctly Open a Banana

So, it turns out me and everyone I know have opened a Banana the wrong way our entire lives. I have always thought that banana’s could only be opened that one way and always been rejecting any other way of doing it. But the living learn and me included. When I watched this the first time I thought to myself that this guy has to be joking. What’s the joke in the whole clip…but how wrong I was. It actually turned out to be a much more efficient way of pealing the banana to get to the actual fruit.

Ha! If a banana had been designed by a human, this would be like an example from Norman's Design of Everyday things on improperly making an affordance visible. The stem LOOKS like it should be a tab for opening, but it's the 'wrong' way to open it.

Wow! I've never been able to open a banana, even the normal way, without terrible bruising. You've saved me from a life of banana-opening failure! :-)
