egg…plant?

I never realised until this morning why Americans call it eggplant.

i honestly had never seen this before and was just putting it together in my head!


#1207

Apparently they grow longer and darker until they become good to eat. I had no idea that they started off looking like eggs.

good innit :slight_smile:


#1209

Holy piss! I never knew this!


#1210

Saw on FB earlier that apparently it is called metal because it is harder than rock - is this true?


#1211

I could be wrong here, but I really don’t think this is true. Purple aubergines start off purple. What that is is a white aubergine, which starts and stays white (and which is the origin of the term eggplant).


#1212

Don’t think so.

Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf: “Heavy metal thunder…”?

Spaghetti Westerns are so called because they were (mostly?) directed by Italians

A quick double-tap of the button that isn’t Home or Back on an Android phone does what Alt+Tab does on a Windows PC

that is mildly surprising!

(perhaps more mild than an exclamation mark would suggest)

(it looks like a little sword now!)

#1217

What does the little sword mean?


#1218

I don’t know yet!

!!!

chk chk chk but they have swords


#1219

(I crossed out the exclamation mark because your Android revelation was only mildly surprising and maybe didn’t need exclaiming)
