Yup. Little old me. Did it by observing a fact only known to an esoteric group of people within a sub-strata of the community.
Mother's of teen aged boys.
Here's how my research developed.
Last Wednesday we received our usual delivery of goodies from Aussie Farmers Direct. It included some bananas, some green apples. some red apples, some oranges, some pears, a bag of red grapes, some kiwi fruit as well as a whole passel of veggies.
On Thursday night, Lima Bean was over. On Friday night, Els was over.
I watched in amazement as these two teen boys defied scientific debate and actually converted the molecules of fruit and transported them vis some unknown process that has to do with the peculiar smell of teen boy's socks, and the rampaging hormones.
Note: 2 teen aged boys can ingest a bowl of fruit, simply by passing it, in the kitchen.
When I asked Lima if he had eaten all 4 bananas, he replies "I dunno".
And Ells and the oranges... "I dunno"
I went out to our local orchard and got a further 2kg bag of Pink Lady's, some pears and a few more bananas.
All gone within an hour of being placed in the fruit bowl.
And when the fruit did not magically re-appear again, I was hounded into handing over some cash, as the boys were "hungry".
Now, if only I can get them to transport their siblings to and from sport, and their mother to work, and get them to use their powers to spin the washing machine and "beam me up" to a Greek island, I'll be able to retire and live the life of Riley!
Just remember, when science discovers a causal link between teen aged boys and that transporter thingy in Star trek, you heard it here first.
