Pineapples: Their Impact in the Modern Day

By nation Fishayyyyyyyyyyyyy June 4, 2012

The scene: You looking at the webpage. The title: Pineapples. The thought: Wtf? The reason: to inform you all about pineapples and their impact on the world. You may think I'm insane (especially considering my past choice of article topics), but this is where you are wrong. Pineapples may be an abstract topic, perhaps too advanced for some of you to even comprehend as important, but they are. Not only are they important, they are an intriguing thing to learn about.

Pineapples, known as many names including Ananas Comosus and أناناس, are tropical, terrestrial fruits. A major export in many tropical countries, they help fuel the world economy. But you all didn't come here for a lesson in economics. No, you came here for an explanation of how they affect you, and that's what you will get, starting with video games.

Star Wars Republic Commando

Yes, pineapples are in Star Wars Republic Commando. You may not be thinking about it when some random noob is blowing your face off with a rocket launcher, but every trandoshan footstep contains a little bit of foley artist Jana Vance's work with pineapples. Yes, the sound that the trando makes when it takes a step forward is a pineapple hitting a block of wood. Though it doesn't get much thought, it is still a vital part of your gaming experience.


Diablo 3

Players everywhere are enjoying the hit new game to come to the markets, Diablo 3. However, there is actually a sales ban in China. You still manage to see Chinese people in game though. How? By the magic of pineapples! Yes, pineapples. How? See, to dodge the sales ban, people sell it as dà bōluó, which means Big Pineapple in Chinese but sounds very similar to Diablo when spoken. Therefore, officials stay stumped and profits come rolling in.

Although I have only mentioned two uses for pineapples in modern day technology, I believe you get the picture: they are important. Without pineapples and their many uses, our lives would not be as entertaining, and certainly not as delicious.
