hi hello this is avocado. tyvm for asking. Avocado is a fruit. It tweets. At first for about 10,000 years avocado was just a fruit and didn't tweet, and tbh that was fine too, but now it tweets and plays with other human technology at a shockingly amateurish level that people still seem to enjoy; for example, avocado's Twine game, the time it made guacamole with Michel Foucault, and breathing.website, which just launched to several retweets' worth of acclaim tyvm.

Avocado's Number?

Trader Joe's makes a guacamole under the brand name "Avocado's Number". It's good.

If avocado is a fruit, is guacamole a smoothie?

Came for the Oglaf reference, stayed for the guacamole.

If there's one thing to remember, it's that avocados used to be dispersed in the poop of giant mammals but now there's Twitter and globalized capitalism.

So great. Appreciate the Oglaf reference too.

Possibly the only thing to which value can be added by smashing it.

I've followed @RealAvocadoFact on Twitter for quite some time. Interesting to finally see them interviewed.

The correct way to eat avocado:

1) smash it
2) put salt on it
3) slather it over your marraqueta. Or in your chicken sandwich. Or over your churrasco.
4) repeat, every single day.

"Avocado," from the Aztec "ahuácatl," meaning testicles.

Avocado originally tarted herself up for North American megafauna that no longer exists. Fortunately the hairless apes responsible for the extinction stepped in to fill the gap...

Okay, so it's been two decades since I've taken physics, but I could SWEAR it was 6.023*10^23.
I remember the successive 23s helping me remember it...has this changed, or am I just totally out of my mind? Or maybe I didn't deserve a 3.7 in high school physics.

aloiv2: Back in high school, some 30-odd years ago, my chem textbook used one & the physics textbook used the other.

And just now googling "Avogadro's number", Google tells me "Avogadro's constant" is 6.023 × 1023. But if I google "Avogadro's constant", Google tells me it's 6.022 × 1023.

(Thankfully, I learnt at uni that it's 6.02214 [+- something that varies depending on who's teaching the subject] × 1023…)

Myself, I spit out the pits, but to each their own.
