The best fruit

Links: links.html

So during my hibernation i've been finding lots of websites cool websites and also not so cool websites not many but it's still something. I've been getting the energy to come back and write everything i have here and fix things.

It also got me thinking having my bookmarks here would be pretty dope, after i switched to ungoogled firefox it has not been my thing to bookmark websites. In fact the only ones in there are the default ones because i'm using browsers like it's the 90s or something now, idk. Probably making a proper blog later cuz it's bloating this main page. - 2021-07-09


I made this card/logo you're seeing on top of the page. I think it looked kinda cool, but could benefit from improvements (i'm not too good at doing this).


I honestly have no idea what to do here besides the link page


Although I only have vague childhood memories of me tasting one of these, I remember it was very good but have forgotten the taste :(


When looking for grapefruit images I found this site from 2010, and a review about grapefruit:

One does not simply -like- grapefruit. Like? Just like?! You don’t just ‘like’ grapefruit. Grapefruit isn’t ‘just okay’—it’s a really special fruit, alright? Don’t talk about it like that. It’s got this super-fresh, sensual aroma, those colors… and then the tart, yet sweet tangy taste… amazing. Feel it over your skin as a lotion. Labor for hours, scraping the rind and boiling it down, dipping it in warm melted chocolate for home-made candy everyone loves. Take a shower in it, ho my God… Grapefruit! Nobody loves grapefruit like me! Whenever someone doesn’t express an equal, well, reverence for grapefruit, I hear that obsessive Genghis Kahn-like voice in my head as I recall all my most fun experiences with some of the most tantalizing grapefruit products I’ve discovered and secretly luxuriated in over the years, and I just feel, well, jealous. Out of sight, out mind sometimes, maybe, but, still… Nobody loves grapefruit the way I do. We have a kind of hot and cold, passionate affair that only Miike Snow would understand… Source

Funny

This is an abbr, and that is a blockquote which i got from somewhere in Wikipedia:

The Trunk, Leaves, and Flowers of this Tree, very much resemble
those of the Orange-tree.
The Fruit, when ripe, is something longer and larger than the largest
Orange; and exceeds, in the Delicacy of its Taste, the Fruit of every
Tree in this or any of our neighbouring Islands.
It hath somewhat of the Taste of a Shaddock; but far exceeds that, as
well as the best Orange, in its delicious Taste and Flavour.

—Description from Hughes' 1750 Natural History of Barbados
