NZ Herald story

My skepticism about a common superstition have been challenged, this was really tempting fate:


On a more serious note, I avoid taking bananas on boats because they release ethylene gas, which makes other fruit ripen fast - so you end up with rotten fruit in the locker where you stored the bananas - at least these guys had them above deck.

One of them was probably also whistling while smuggling his lady-friend on board below deck.  Idiots.  Lol

Matt Watson makes habit of always taking bananas.  There is a myth that if you take bananas you won't catch fish.  He catches plenty and even did an episode where he used a strip of banana skin on a hook as a lure to catch fish.

Was going to say the same thing.  Integration is very good if that's the case.

Their placement also looks rather convenient too.

Man, I really didn't think we could top the "Why does NZ still use 12 hour clocks" but boy was I wrong...

Fishermen/boaties are superstitious, right up there with professional sportspeople and gamblers.

As soon as I read the title of this thread, I thought of your last post and waited for you to drop by, haha!
