According to one of my friends at school, bananas will become extinct in the next 10 years due to this mysterious tree disease in Asia. She even '' double checked it with her super-smart older brother and her cousin". She tells this to everybody, and also that they should treasure and /or save their bananas. She also says that she's going to start a banana stockpile.
I told her that she's crazy because, even if, by some odd chance, bananas go extinct, scientists will create some banana hybrid or whatever.
Nobody believes her. So far, I'm winning. =)
