I never really eat oranges, but I do tend to suck the sweet, sweet citrus-y juices out of them... mmm... Orange Juice...

Oranges are awesome. Agent Orange is not awesome. My dad had a firsthand encounter with it in Vietnam.

One of the best descriptions in writing I've ever seen was "‘Okay,’ said the Bellman, whose head was in danger of falling apart like a chocolate orange".

I hate fruit, but I love fruit juice. As such, I can't start a day without Orange juice. It's my coffee.

Except if you are in the Mafia, and then you are killed whenever you eat an orange.

Megumi Hayashibara seems to hold oranges in high regard. (http://www.nnanime.com/megumi-toon/mgbk020.html)

I'd say it's a textbook example of using science incorrectly.

Wow, where's that from?

Also: when I used to eat at the dining commons with people who lived on my floor during freshman year of college, one girl would take about 20 minutes just peeling her orange. 20 minutes! After getting through the thick peel she would spend even more time meticulously scraping away at that white part-whatever you call it.

It was maddening.

That's why I don't eat oranges too often unless I have a knife or something to cut it apart with. The peel is aggravating.

An inquiry such as this deserves a pithy answer.

The white part of the rind, called the pericarp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pericarp) or albedo...

Me too! I think I've had a glass of Orange Juice almost everyday for something like the last 7 years. I love Orange Juice.

Oranges are overrated, grapefruit is the superior citrus.

Fine, I'll say it, since I know we're all thinking it: whatever happened to Orange Julius?

I still see those places in malls sometimes, often as half of a two-some also consisting of a Dairy Queen.

What do you mean 'What happened to Orange Julius?' They are still around, despite their lack of quality.

Grapefruit is actually a hybrid of a orange and a pomelo.

this is what i've been calling fuckgrass because of its propensity to jam the bell case assembly of my grandpa's weed eater

it is the opposite of oranges (and by extension, grapefruits which are indeed superior)

We had an orange tree in our backyard. It produced a couple dozen great juice oranges each year! I forget exactly why we chopped it. Perhaps it overlapped a neighbor's yard too much.
