Slow-Motion Run, Don’t Walk, to the First ‘Baywatch’ Trailer

It has become increasingly apparent that the best thing a revival of a tired ‘80s pop-culture artifact can be is the neo-21 Jump Street, judging by the new trailer for the Dwayne Johnson-fronted Baywatch.

Are Banana’s Going To Be Extinct In 10 Years? The Truth Behind A New Rumor

When I first heard someone suggest that banana's are going to disappear from supermarket shelves in the next ten years, I dismissed it as coming from "someone who didn't know what they were talking about".  Then I encountered another person who shared the same story - that a strain of fungus was attacking banana trees, and they would be extinct within the next decade.  Hmm, I thought.  Then a third person passed the story off to me - and that's when I realized that I needed to do some investigation of my own.
