It's time we finish this. The age-old question needs answering.

Apples!
If it's juice though...
Oranges.
But that's juice!
If just the fruit, definately apple!

What the--? I'm the ONLY one here who voted for oranges?!?

So just what are we supposed to do on a prolonged sea voyage--watch our teeth fall out from scurvy?

:dozey: Meh. Go suck apples, the lot of ye!

I've always been partial to Ginger Gold apples. They only come around for a few months in late summer, but they're so crisp and delicious: it's worth the wait.

apples are less messy and easier to get into as you don't have to peel.

90SK

You don't?

*puts away peeler, looking disappointed*

If it's green apples, then oranges! If it's red apples, then oranges!

Gabez
11-13-2005, 08:43 PM
I'm probably the opposite to that - I prefer when they're green and mean.

Also, what orange are we talking about here? The really big ones that are impossible to get into and spray painful orange acid into your eye? Or the small and cute oranges that are easy to peel, have no pips and are really juicy?

Appels.

I tried that once. Took weeks getting the yellow paint out of my hair...

The Case for Oranges

The orange, when compared to the apple, is almost perfectly round. Its skin is dimpled for easy grip, and is softer than the hard, unyielding waxiness of apple skin. Granted, there is more effort involved in peeling an orange before eating it--but at least you don't wind up eating the rind! Who want's to eat the peel anyway? The flesh of an orange is higher--as I have previously mentioned--in vitamin C, and it comes handily segmented so you can share some of your delicious citrus treat with friends, without undue mess. In closing, I would point out that the state of Florida, which is famous for producing oranges, is also the repeated target of many disastrous hurricanes. If God's that pissed off at Florida for growing them, there must be something sinfully good about the humble orange...

*Ahem!*

Yes, hurricanes and whatnot because oranges are sinfully good, lets forget the whole Adam and Eve thing when it comes to the apple.

yeah good point.
also:

yeah but apples hurt more when you throw them at people.
The flesh of an orange is higher--as I have previously mentioned--in vitamin C
which, if you eat too much of, can harm your digestive system quite severely
and it comes handily segmented so you can share some of your delicious citrus treat with friends, without undue mess. In closing

let me rephrase that for you. and sadly it comes handily segmented so you can are forced to (i mean you have to be polite..... *cough*) share some of your delicious citrus treat with friends, without large amounts of undue mess. In closing

yeebebe
face it peeps, apples own oranges. theres only ONE bad thing and thats that the skin gets stuk between your teeth

That's just a tasty (if not powerful painful) treat for later.

We have a nice tree with "peasgood" apples outside.
They are delicious, and one of the biggest apples in the world.

All the filthy minded people on this board and no one took advantage of this line? Shame on you all. Especially you Roy, this should have been all you.


Yeah I have a hard time deciding without specifying types of fruit, I mean if it was Granny Smith Apples vs. Clemetine Oranges I don't think I could choose.

Too damn easy. Give us a challenge.
What makes you think we would ever stoop so low to compare eating fruit with erotic activity, anyway?

Besides, what could we ever do with, for instance, the image of you wrapping your lips around a nice, tart, juicy, ripe Granny, your teeth pressing gently but insistingly into the oh so smooth skin, seeking the penetrate into the tender waiting flesh below... or the thought of Clementines sweet, sweet juices gushing forth from between your probing fingers peeling the skin back from the wet inside, until you are left with fluid running off your chin.

See,.. there's just really nowhere you can go from there. :giveup:

I like Cox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Cox) as well... *shrug*

Zoom Rabbit

I would say the whole *cox* joke was one we all thoroughly laughed at in private but were inclined to leave alone because there are CHILDREN aplenty in this forum. :dozey: That sort of thing is better suited to Aresen, or XWA...

See what happens to people when they choose the apple? Neil, you were so right. ;)

Joshi

What? Right about what? The adam and eve thing? (which was sarcasm) or the "You are what you eat" thing? (Which was a Dr Cox Quote)

Hey, did you know that there's more vitamin C in a single blueberry than in an entire orange?

Solution: blueberry wins.

It all depends on what your definition of "kid" is (please, lets not kid ourselves. Most 7 year olds know more sexual slang terms than 87 year olds. Lets not be prejudice :xp: ).

There is much more vitamin C in a polar bear's liver than a blueberry, Gabez. Polar bear eats blueberry. :p

True, because there are plenty of blueberries in the polar regions.

Apples, they come in such a varity of colors. Unlike oranges who only come in one shade of bright tacky orange!

You find green ones on occasion. But those hardly count.

Gabez

There is much more vitamin C in a polar bear's liver than a blueberry, Gabez. Polar bear eats blueberry. :pActually, it's vitamin A, and it's got that in such a high concentration that if you eat the liver you will die. In fact, I heard that as little as one mouthful will be kill you, but I'm not sure as to the specifics.

Zoom Rabbit
11-17-2005, 12:03 PM
Ahum. :D According to this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_C) most helpful website, the calf's liver has 36 mg. of vitamin C per 100 grams of food while the humble blueberry has merely 10 mg. per 100 grams...

Granted, they didn't actually list polar bear liver on that chart, but one may extrapolate.

edlib

Granted, they didn't actually list polar bear liver on that chart, but one may extrapolate.Well, a Calf is a young animal, and the term is mainly used for cattle but never, to my knowledge, for polar bears. ;

All I really know is that polar bears have a lot of vitamin A in them (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_A), and I wouldn't think that there would be any room left for vitamin C... even to beat a blueberry.

How 'bout human liver, then?A human's liver has 575 interntional units of Vitamin A in their liver, whilst a Polar Bear has 24,000-35,000 (from http://members.tripod.com/~Prof_Anil_Aggrawal/poiso032.html)

At least the luke warm tap water was good...

I had two...count em, two, chicken and mushroom pies. 3 for 99p at Netto, and as I'm a poor student, you can't really go wrong there (tasted pretty good too).

I still go for apples though, they taste better in a pie.

Ray Jones
11-18-2005, 07:42 AM
I had chicken sweet and sour with a pinapple, chicken, sweet and sour in it. And rice aplenty.

And I had a turkey pie once, only thing worse was canned spaghetti on canned toast with wooden sausages (canned) and canned mashed potatoes PLUS hairs of four kitties. ONLY available in the UK, without doubt.
