Apples to Apples

When making comparisons we hear expressions like “apples to oranges” when a comparison is with something dissimilar. Instead people want “apples to apples”.

The thing to keep in mind is even apples to apples frequently isn’t fair. Comparing Macintosh’s to Granny Smith’s isn’t a fair comparison. Golden Delicious and Honeycrisps are quite different.

It’s very difficult to get a fair comparison of things so maybe we should stop comparing items and instead take them all on their own merit.

Just a thought.

Have a great day!
