Go ahead and try it. Go to google and type in ‘exploding coconuts’. You don’t need to click search, just click on ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button. That’s right, it will take you directly to my post on the subject almost two years ago.
That means either a) people see me and my blog as the definitive source in exploding coconuts, or more likely b) exploding coconuts are such a rare occurrence that my little backwater blog is one of the few spots that actually talks about it.
The reason I bring this subject up again is that as you can see from the comments, there has been another coconut exploding event. We had my original experience in April of 2005, somebody else had one in August of 06, and now we’ve had our first explosion of 2007. Anybody with a lick of math sense can plainly see that the occurrences are speeding up. At this rate, in a few years you won’t be able to walk through your tropical paradise without feeling like you’re under heavy mortar fire.
So, there you have it. If you’re walking down the produce section, and two roads diverge, don’t take the one less traveled by, take the one that goes past the relatively safe bananas, and not the potentially unstable coconuts.
