There Is No Banana

Just the other day, I was on the phone with thndrchld. In the midst of the convo, she told me about a convo she had with a friend of hers, that resulted in a revelation about human behaviour. it boiled down to one simple idea: that these stupid things that people do are born out of some primate dominance hold-over in their brains. It's as if these people are trying to be the first to get the banana, but if they'd all just realize that there is no banana, maybe they'd calm down. Alternatively, maybe if you just give these people a banana, they'd be happy and shut up and get along. (You can read her thoughts on this here.)

Well, the more we talked about it, the more this became less of a funny revelation, and more of a potential movement. By the end of the call, we had plans, baby. So, it is with a certain amount of pride that I announce a new angle to my Master Plan. The movement towards enlightenment is getting a jolt of much-needed energy, dammit.

T.I.N.B. - There Is No Banana

Read our initial manifesto. Join us. Help spread the word, far and wide. I've even thoughtfully provided graphics for your webpages, journals, and other assorted uses (just don't translink the images...I check the logs, and I won't be happy with you, primate). Hell, I'm hoping one day to have some stickers and t-shirts done. We can make this more than just a funny idea, we can make this a serious movement. We can also make this a bit of a far-flung Internet cult thing, if we try hard enough. ;)

Welcome to the Human Race.
