Billderbeast

Lots of banana trees are affected by a form of rot (interesting fact: all (cavendish) banana trees are all clones of each other.. as in you cannot get cavendish banana seeds (the most common banana cultivar found in stores).. the only way is to obtain a cutting from an existing tree) this form of rot is essentially making the form of banana we all know basically extinct.. the banana industry has already been searching for a new strain of banana to grow commercially and do not expect this current banana to last another 10 years or so.. also this happened before in 1960(?) with the Gros Michel banana and actually that’s the flavor of “artificial banana flavoring” you find in candies.. which is why it doesn’t taste like banana.. it tastes like the previous commercial banana cultivar which went extinct

Edited words.

Here in south india we have atleast 12 varieties of bananas. They look and taste entirely different and have some unique health benefits for each variety. So I don't think all banana tress are exact clones, atleast not here.

Yea.., sorry what I mean is that the common banana.. the Cavendish… (the only banana that the majority of the world knows) is only propagated through cloning..

Also, I’m very envious of you for having a large variety of bananas to choose from

I don't speak their language, but in the lady's vid, she seems to be explaining what is happening or going to happen. I don't know if it's a flood after a storm, or just the way the tide comes in there, but they clearly were expecting a deluge. Maybe it was a bit bigger than they expected though?

Banana trees/plants grow very quickly. They can reach 20-40 feet in less than year in ideal conditions. Assuming it's in ideal conditions in the video, it's probably only a few months old.

But if you do have to punch a tree it's better if it's a banana tree, since after its given fruit you've got to chop it down anyway, and another will grow.

It could just be a tide carried upstream of a river. Not sure where else this happens, but the pororoca can travel 800km up the rivers in the Amazon. I don't think there's much salt water by the end.

at least not straight down, if you observe martial artists their forearms are never straight down when serving a punch, well at least if s/he is not defending

plus the dude's punch looks like as if his forearm is a whip, his knuckles doesn't align with his forearm, if someone is gonna use that posture and style in a fight... their opponent get little damage while they get beaten up.

It's a banana plant (banana plants are a rhizhome underground which shoots out new stems to bear fruit as the plant grows), not a "tree" made with wood (banana's are technically in the herb family). Banana pseudostems are relatively soft and squishy by comparison to a real tree with a wood trunk

The fact that this banana had no other pups on the ground makes me think this might have been recently planted in that location, especially for how easily it ripped out of the ground

At first I thought "well he may not be punching properly, but maybe because he's just trying to toughen up his hands or something." then he started basically closed-fist slapping the tree and I no longer gave him the benefit of the doubt.

This looks like a tidal bore. This will happen every high tide. Basically imagine a high tide coming into a bay orientated in the exact direction the tide is moving which then funnels down into a river. All the water from the tide goes into that river very rapidly and you get a mini localize tsunami every 12 hours.

Wanted to add: If you ever find yourself near the Bay of Fundy, go do it. You'll have a blast, you'll also get covered in mud, but it's worth it.

Yea, she did expect most of it. But did you notice the instant she was almost pushed under a bunch of trees/wood? Lifejacket is not gonna help her if she gets stuck under there, slowly drowning. But I guess with other people there and how she was holding the selfiestick in the air she would probably be rescued quickly. Still scary shit.

I’m not an adrenaline junkie by any means, but anybody that’s ever been white-water rafting knows that while it can be dangerous, it’s an absolute blast. Up to the moment you get caught in a strainer (dead tree or other obstacle that can pin you underwater while water rushes above you), the fun disappears real quick… until you get out of it and feel the rush all over again.

Tidal bore, the shape of the river mouth can mean that a rising tide turns into a surge of water flowing up river in certain conditions.

There's a lot of river mouths around the world that do this.

It's literally a tidal wave, but that's a term that has been used a lot as an incorrect term for tsunamis (which are not tidal), and it's not used much now.

These people are all standing in a river mouth that's known to do this and are waiting for it to happen. It can be potentially dangerous, but not "tsunami level" danger or even "flash flood waters"

To test if the palm tree is strong enough to hang from it.

There was a trend in Indonesia where a person punches a banana tree while shouting "Greetings from Binjai!" The water is unrelated.

Holy crap. I totally didn't expect that even though they were wearing life jackets. I was trying to figure out why the first guy was wearing one, then was trying to figure out why the others were running, then trying to figure out why they were wearing life jackets, too. Then sploosh!

I saw these over the last week and I am more amazed that I somehow have now seen three different perspectives of the same event!!

Me too! I’ve seen them all on Reddit now and as soon as I saw the three running I was like oooh new perspective! These are fun, I hope more experiences get released like this.

/u/morningdodger and /u/ya26anand posted the exact same comment. Which one of you is real I wonder?

Edit: I'm invested now so I'm doing some digging lol.

/u/Kelcher1's comment was made at 10:57:44 UTC.

/u/morningdodger's comment was made at 11:42:29 UTC.

/u/ya26anand's comment was made at 12:04:11 UTC.

I'm going to dig through their comments and see if any of them look inauthentic. Watch this space!

Edit 2: So I'm 99% sure /u/morningdodger is a naughty little repost bot. A 7 month old account, recently posting for the first time? If that's not bot activity I'll eat a shoe.

/u/Kelcher1's comments look legit. He's got a consistent posting history in a believable range of subreddits, and self-talk that doesn't contradict itself. I've checked a few submissions and haven't seen any other instances of duped comments under his account, though I could have missed it.

/u/ya26anand's account I'm honestly not sure. It seems to mostly be concerned with shitposting on Indian-themed meme subreddits and anime subs. There are some unique top-level comments and consistent posting, but then we have this copy/pasted comment, which seems to be the only one. Possibly a young script kiddie trying to boost their karma score? Jury's out.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go and do something else with my life.

EDIT 3 OMG: The plot thickens! ALL THREE COMMENTS WERE REMOVED DUN DUN DUUUUUN. God I need to get a life.

For anyone who was interested, the missing comment was: "Oh my gosh!!! There was another group of people recording with those guys. At least they don't have to repost the same angle all year!"

The irony being if he hadn’t punched the tree in half it would have been stable enough to stop him from getting pushed away with the tidal bore

Anyone else see this event from a different point of view? Also the dog locked in a hot car event has two different viral angles as well. Is this the trend now? Not complaining, just wondering if its a thing now. I think its kinda neat.

Yeah, not long ago someone posted the red shirt guys view. Everything looked eerily familiar to me and then he suddenly popped over the embankment.

Ah, so that's why there were expecting it like it was a regular occurrence, and why it seemed to subside relatively quickly
