    They both taste pretty good, too.

    Apples make better wine. My Orange wine, which I call “Navel Juice”, turned out rather bland. The Apple-Blackberry really turned out the best. But that has nothing to do with this; its apples and blackberries.

    Wait, what apples and oranges *aren’t* “fist-sized fruit….”?

    • Wesoteric says:

      She’s saying that being fist sized is one commonality between apples and oranges. There’s other stuff that makes them different (obviously), which is why they have their own circle.

    The essence of compromise – the ability to find common ground without giving any ground. Well done, Jessica…again!

  7. Erika says:

    Comparing [comparing incomparable things] to [comparing apples and oranges] is a bad comparison. Therefore it is a good comparison, because bad comparisons are what it’s an analogy for.

  8. Erica says:

    Shouldn’t it be a union of fist sized fruits with two sets, one oranges and one apples?

  9. acm says:

    Yeah, what Erica said — there isn’t actually an intersection of actual apples with actual oranges, only a set that they both fall into (at least, the fist-sized ones)…
