Decomposition-This is a Bit Gross

In our science we had to do a couple of experiments with bananas.

Each experiment had two bags each. 
The first had bananas with nothing, and then bananas with yeast.
After a week the bananas with the yeast were REALLY mushing and well, yucky.
The second had bananas with again nothing and then salt.
The salt acted as a perservative.  The salt sucked the water out of the bananas really fast. 
Brings to mind what it does to our bodies after a bowl of chips.
Pass the tea!!

For home educators, students and researchers: I have put one of the most comprehensive link lists for hundreds of thousands of statistical sources and indicators (economics, demographics, health etc.) on my blog: Statistics Reference List. And what I find most fascinating is how data can be visualised nowadays with the graphical computing power of modern PCs, as in many of the dozens of examples in these Data Visualisation References. If you miss anything that I might be able to find for you or if you yourself want to share a resource, please leave a comment.
