Instant dislike for using Fahrenheit.
Bro, just one thing besides the great video. That is not the Ecuadorian flag, that is Colombian flag. Try to be aware of that next time.
That last banana is so still edible
Good video Polymatter, I wonder could they sneak me a Tesla in a container. 😛
Bananas are gross, anyone else agree
I watched 2:22 of this video and stopped before I went brain dead.
7:40 Panama Canal!

Gotta go buy some bananas
Durr what does TEU mean?
13 degrees celcius!
Bananana? Bananananananana? Why was the start about bananas?
idk why but the sound of his voice makes me feel dumber
amazing. thanks. Please do a video explaining off shoring industry
Tip: If the video title is about container ships, describe them, not how bananas ripen. Even something like "bananas are protected better when shipped in containers because they are not subject to rough manhandling in sacks"
nigga said container ships in the title, but talked about banana the entire video
I have never thought of this when I last ate a banana
Roll period, heave period, yaw period. Period.
This is NOT about how a container ship works, fail ! This is why remotely grown goods like bananas are cheaper than locally grown crop.
There's always a relevant XKCD
i just googled for lbs to kilograms, and Fahrenheit to Celsius
7:55 why 600,000 Americans? why not just 600000 people
Good job thank you.
Anyone who has ever eaten a freshly harvested ripe banana in its home environment has some difficulty eating the "bananas" on offer at Euro and USA supermarkets.
