Just look at it.
Mag Lev Banana
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

i like how it whirls, while i look at it.
more banana posts please.
I must say, if there is one thing boingboing does well, it’s interesting headlines. No joke, you guys are almost as good at the Northern Territory News.
They’re no match for Wonkette, though.
My fave NT News front page had both, “Man punches giant croc” and “Darwin’s 50 best dressed blokes”. Mash them together and you have the perfect reality TV game show.
What is the history of the Boing Boing “Just Look At It” Banana posts? Don’t get me wrong, I love them. I just feel like I’m missing an inside joke.
Just keep looking at it; you’ll get it eventually.
NO, goddammit, I’m tired of “just looking”– I’m going to eat the damn thing!
Sounds like a warning.
I think that is a banana subjected to quantum locking, not magnetic levitation.
I think it’s both combined, isn’t it? Known to laypersons as the Meissner effect or to technical people as the “banana float”.
Peanut butter jelly time! Wait, why did I think that?
I find this strangely appealing.
note to those who care: not a real banana (see link). still cool!
I’m starting to think you’re being banana-rolled.
Musically, Never Gonna Give you Up isn’t a bad song. And Rick Astley isn’t a bad vocalist. It’s just that the song abused a lot of popular audio production gimmicks, and ended up insanely overplayed.
I’m just saying, don’t hate the Rick, hate the rickroll ;-]
Living large in Turkey with a 16-foot fishing boat, a handful or two of radishes and a banana.
It’s about time that great Russian inventor, Dimitri Maglev, got his due here on Boing Boing.
Why is it frozen? Are Maglev/quantum locking technologies reliant on freezing temperatures?
