Seven uncooked apples, in a single sitting?
Either you have iron guts, or....
... or I'm leaving six of them in the fruitbowl for later.
Did the walk to the shop feel a long way or was that just peanuts in comparision to the distance to (insert place name here)?
\sorry couldn't help it
\will crawl away to geek corner
I had a bet with myself that someone would spot that...
I actually suggested a friend should use that in a college piece about the Cosmic Egg Theory (something about where space can possibly be expanding into) along with the 'if anyone works out what the universe is it will disappear and be replaced with something more confusing, in fact some people thing it already has' (paraphrase)
I really am a h2g2 geek...
I was watching an old repeat of "Mock the Week" yesterday, filmed in a week when some particle physicists had just built a new collider.
Whoever it was said "... and I'm just hoping that if they do discover what protons are made of, our whole universe will collapse and a big sign will come up saying Level Two..."
I haven't had a properly ripe banana for years. These modern Euro-straightened bananas just don't do it.
If you have a gas welder handy, filling their paper bag with acetylene will ripen bananas beautifully in no time (this autocatalytic gas-triggered ripening is why they ripen quicker in bunches inside a bag than they do alone, or hanging in free air).
I'm not surprised they're selling green ones; our bananas are ripening to the point of inedibility in about two days at the moment (you'd probably quite like them, but we're thinking about making banana bread...).
Also, the whole 'five fruit and veg' thing is underpinned by an expectation that you will eat lots of different sorts of fruit and veg. So next time you can't get bananas, you might try lots of different fruit?
Completely with you on the banana issue.
Something Should Be Done.
Ripening bananas is one of my migraine triggers - something to do with the fumes they give off as they ripen apparently, so I for one am happy that supermarkets only seem to sell green ones!
Thats weird. I always feel ill when I smell banana at all. really annoys me when someone leaves a banana skin in the bin after lunch in the office. If they do it in the kitchen fine, but in the office itself!
Buy the bananas anyway, they'll be fine next week.
You mean you've eaten all the ones I left you already? MMMmmmmmmMMMM all that fruity goodness is much better for you than stupid old Dime Bars - stick to the fruit till all the nasty old Dime Bars have evaporated...
I like my bananas 'speckled' too :-p and I would consider eating them when they are even riper (rather than waste them) but that would be on a case by case basis...
