Space Banana

It is happening at last. Through millenia of human history, we have tackled progressively greater challenges, overcome increasingly difficult obstacles. From fire, to the wheel, to water power, to decent hygiene, to the iron horse, to nuclear energy, to electric toothbrushes, nothing has been able to stop our advance as a race.

And now, the pinnacle of our collective existence is finally coming to light: behold, the Geostationary Banana Over Texas, an art project in which a 300 meter lighter than air banana will be floated over the Lone Star state for a period of 2 months. You can bet that I’ll be out in the yard with binoculars in one hand and a banana split in the other, thanking God that I live in such a time as this.
