Have you been peeling your bananas wrong? Our relatives in the animal kingdom, namely monkeys, apparently understand the fruit much better than we do. 

YouTube user 'somedirection' gives us helpful tutorial on what we've all been doing wrong, writing, "My whole adult life, I never knew the right way to open a banana." Forget what you learned in grade school and take a lesson from the primates!
