The Big Chart Fruit Fight

I've taken to eating rather a lot of fruit lately. Aside from an ongoing effort to improve my overall diet (red meat and caffeine really aren't a good basis for a happy healthy life - take my word for it...) or emulate my latest telly box heroes, I've found that I rather like it.

And the more I eat, the more I like.

Apples are good. They're crunchy and flavoursome. Apparently there are compounds in the skin that make you feel full up, and their juice can help alleviate cognitive decline.

Oranges are also good. They're sweet and juicy. They can lower cholesterol, reduce your blood pressure and even help to stop your nose running.

But which is better?

There used to be only one way to find out.

Now there's another: The Big Chart®.

It's twenty minutes, but it'll change the way you look at every thing. I personally found illumination at 05:40. I hope you do too. (Especially if you're an engineer.)

Just on the offchance you've stumbled upon this blog - and if you haven't, I can't quite imagine how you'd be reading this in the first place - may I offer my apologies for the notable absence of content to date.

For the record, the bees of thingishness are busy doing... well, bee-ish things. They're also proving a little shy, never having flown in the wild and gusty environs of this world-wide wonderland. They'll be ready soon, I'm assured.

"A little patience goes a long way."
"Yes. And too much patience goes absolutely nowhere."
- Andrew Smith, "Full Circle"

Come on you bees.
