Eye Glasses and Banana: How do you use your bananas?

My son came home from school yesterday with the bridge of his glasses broken. I looked at it and decided that it could be re-attached and held together with some short, thin pieces of wire and solder.

I needed something to hold the glasses as well as something to hold the wires across the bridge to set the solder and hold the broken bridge together. I tried holding the lens/glasses by pushing them into some clay and hold the broken bridge and wires together with small pieces of scotch tape. My idea was that the solder would burn the tape away. This system wasn’t working. I couldn't keep all the pieces from moving. I needed a better way to hold the broken bridge pieces together with the small wires.

Looking around for something to help hold everything, I saw a banana and came up with an idea.

I peeled the banana. By pushing the glasses into the banana I was able to use it to hold the glasses together at the bridge. I was able to lay the 2 small wires along each side of the bridge and dropped the solder onto the bridge and wires. Solder doesn’t stick to bananas. I was able to smooth out the solder and repair the glasses. They’re fixed and they are functional. He will be getting a new set of glasses anyway in a few weeks.

After repairing the glasses, a question then came to my mind.

What other uses do you know of or have for bananas?

Gixxie, sweetie, your banana-blog attachment appears as a box with a red x in it!

Am going bananas waiting to see what lies behind the little door with a red x?
