Bananas - Courtesy Suat Eman, freedigitalphotos.net

Today while shopping at Costco, I had to pause and contemplate how weird us humans really are. It happened when I was grabbing a bag of bananas.

Being a wholesale store, you can get a ton of bananas in bags for $1.32 at Costco. Some bags may have 10 while others may have 12 bananas. Some bananas may have a few spots while others may still have a green streak or two. In the end it really doesn't matter which bag you get. It's just $1.32.

What's amazing is that some people (myself included) seem to spend an eternity searching and hunting for a perfect bunch or perhaps that prized bag with the most bananas. And for what? $1.32.

Weird, people blow $10 on a pack of cigarettes, $5 for a beer at the bar, or $20 dollars playing lotto. We spend money on all kinds of stupid things, but we take all the time in the world to find that perfect $1.32 banana bunch.
