Anybody remember Cape Bananapeel?

    There's a thread going on just now in the General Physics forum about how a rocket works. Someone mentioned throwing bananas to propel yourself. That took me back to my childhood when I watched "Beany and Cecil" cartoons on TV, which featured a rocket-launching site named "Cape Bananapeel."

    (Thank you, YouTube!)

    Somebody at school actually talked me into squeezing a banana to see if it would "launch" like that. :blushing:
