Comparing Apples To Oranges

Whenever you try to compare two things that people consider similar they say "That's like comparing apples to oranges!" They say this to get you to stop trying to compare the two things like it's completely pointless, but this saying is stupid bullshit because there are actually a lot of very important differences between apples and oranges:

Oranges are way more acidic and contain WAY MORE Vitamin C than apples. They're softer to eat and are naturally segmented. Apples have a waxy skin with an inedible core and a stem. Apples are associated with education and classrooms for some reason, they are the subject of the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" when really that saying should be about oranges because of the Vitamin C. Apples have nearly no nutritional value compared to oranges. Then again to make up for that you can eat them with peanut butter. You can't eat oranges with peanut butter, it tastes weird.

 Comparing apples to oranges isn't a useless task, it's actually a very interesting argument that's worth taking a look at. For my money I think oranges are the superior fruit. You might have a different opinion, that's why we compare them because maybe enough evidence can be found one day to arrive at a definitive result. That's the purpose of comparing two things...
