“When my mother asked, one doctor assured her that although the shunt was short (it wasn’t), it was fine (it wasn’t), it was in the right place (it wasn’t) and it was working (it wasn’t). A second doctor, the one who performed the operation, had the audacity to actually scold my mother.”
Trust me, it’s not going where you think it must.
Jewish Thought of the Day contemplates the banana, with a bunch of lesser known facts. This one we didn’t know:
“Everyone knows that bananas are high in potassium. In fact, they are also high in radioactive potassium 40. That means that when the sun shines on them, they actually glow! Not only the banana itself, but its leaves too. But only when they’re ripe so that birds and animals that don’t ‘see’ in sunlight, only in the ultraviolet range, know when it’s time for a tasty treat.”
The author posted this entry under “Jewish Beliefs & Philosophy.” Maybe he had no category for “Jewish Fruits.”
No, can’t be.
