Apparently there is a huge furor over Sobeys selling avocado’s cut-in-half, destoned, and packaged in plastic. This is no longer convenience… this verges on the brink of saying “humans are just stupid. Bad enough that apples come cut and prepackaged. There was a time when humans actually ate apples whole – the ultimate in nature-packaged snacks… similar to the perfect usability offered by the orange, or say, the banana. All this does is decrease human skills – even more than they are now.
In fact it may take more effort to remove the avocado from the packaging than actually preparing a real one. It takes about a minute to learn how to do do it from a YouTube video:
Admittedly, I get why stores sell pomegranate seeds pre-separated from the fruit, but pomegranates have a low level of usability. But avocado’s? It’s almost as bad as those devices to slice bananas. Between AI and pre-packaged fruit is there any hope for humans?
