“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

A Tale of Two Pineapples

The grapefruit turns out to be sitting in a rather moldy basket. The pineapple by contrast grows in a grove of pineapple trees. So it's the pineapple.

But another pineapple had shown up. It's larger but less juicy than pineapple 1.

Which pineapple in the grove should it be? 1 or 2?

If it's a question of the size of a pineapple, you might ask whether your children are getting larger or smaller over time.

The more juicy pineapple provides better hydration. Besides the actual pineapple is a product of where it grew. What grew the less juicy pineapple that made it less juicy? Can its juice be enhanced?

Don't larger pineapples require more cooling to keep from spoiling? (I think I made myself sick with that troping.)
