Ok, we had a topic on ID vs ATS, which we brought up the idea of comparing apples and oranges. Well, lets see how easy this would be actually. Apples are easier to eat than oranges as you do not have to peel them. Apples are not as messy as oranges, becuase when you peel the orange, juice can be squirted out Apples come in Yellow, Red, and Green, oranges only come in one color. Apples make a much better pie than apples.... I would take an apple pie with ice cream over an orange pie any day! Oranges are filled with beta carotene, vitamin C, folate, potassium and fibre. While apples are very low in nutrients but contain high amounts of fibre and disease-busting phytochemicals. Both are grown in orchards, have trees that flowers, and can both be turned into juice. They are both considered fruits, are subject to damage by disease, are both prone to rotting, both can have damage from insects, and both are sweet. Their average circumferences are rather close at 25.6cm for the apple and 24.4cm for the orange. Their diameter is also fairly close at 7.9cm for apples and 7.6cm for oranges. Suprisingly, their mean rate is also fairly close at 340grams for the apple and the orange ranked in slightly heavier at 357 grams. Here is a funny comparision.... "Apples are better since they have a red peel. And if under ripe they can be orangish in color. Thus they are superior then oranges, since oranges can't be red!" This was taken from: http://www.oreillynet.com/cs/user/view/cs_msg/25770, but really has nothing to do with real appleas and oranges. But, I had to include it. Obviously, we have just killed the statement that you cannot compare apples and oranges. Just tell spout off these comparisons next time you hear someone say it and you will really WOW them with your knowledge. Any more comparisions?
