(12/29/2011)

Durians. Pungent smelling fruit encompassed by lethal, sharp spikes – the [Durian]  fruit is ubiquitous in Bali at this time of year, sold from the back of pick-ups parked along the side of major roads.

Heavy and hard to carry without doing injury to your hand, if the durian could be secured on the end of a strong rope or chain, it could form a handy replacement for the ancient [flail].

The lethal qualities of the durian was discovered by a 51-year-old Payangan man on Wednesday, December 28, 2011, when he was struck on the head by a falling durian.

As reported by NusaBali, cut and unconscious after his encounter with the durian, I Wayan Geningan was rushed to the Sanjiwani Gianyar Hospital where he was hospitalized for concussive injuries to his head.

There’s a moral to this story: don’t sleep under a durian tree in season.
