I Can't Hear You; There's a Giant Banana Over Texas


The Geostationary Banana Over Texas project proposes placing a giant banana in geosynchronous orbit as an art intervention.
Thanks to Marian the Librarian for this.

I am particularly fond of their "collaborate" section, in which they request help from experts in inertia propulsion, airship engineers, mathematicians and cultural critics.

Well, let me tell you, the eggplant that ate Australia would find it no sweat at all to take care of that banana, giant or otherwise.

The above referenced eggplant is quarried from an I LOVE LUCY show in which Lucy has gone to see a horror movie and then can't fall asleep at night. Her husband Ricky attempts to reassure her by piling up pillows inside their bedroom door, but she looks at them queasily and says, "The eggplant that ate Australia wouldn't have any trouble removing those pillows."

So... let the denizens of the Lone Star State sleep easy (unlike Lucy). Remember, they don't call them deadly nightshades for nothing.
