How do you keep bananas from ripening too fast?

How do you keep your bananas from ripening too fast? I have never found anything that has worked for me. I wind up making banana bread to use up my over-ripe bananas. I like cutting up 1/2 a banana to put on my oatmeal (with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) every morning. I put the other 1/2 banana in the refrigerator, and it's okay for the next day. However, when I put my bananas on the counter, they ripen within a day. Then I may put them in the refrigerator, but they seem to continue ripening in the refrigerator, and the skins turn black.

Do you have any good solutions?
