Maybe it's the weed , maybe it's a case of down syndrome I caught as a child on a McDonald's play ground but the reviews for this cracked me the fuck up . http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0047E0EII/ref=aw_cr_item_title I have served in the US Army for over 12 years. I can say that there is technology being used by the military that is rarely seen in the civilian sector. Once in a while, however, an amazing product is released by the DoD for civilian use. The 571B is one of those products. Although once called the M571B Tactical Banana Slicer (TBS)V1, they have declassified it for public use. I am glad to see this product on the market today but I will warn you now, this is a CIVILIAN model and not designed for field use! I tried the banana slicer and found it unacceptable. As shown in the picture, the slices is curved from left to right. All of my bananas are bent the other way.
