I wanted to compare the common fruits. However, "apple" and "orange" were out because Apple Inc. and the color orange would distort the results too much. So I replaced them by "cranberry" and "strawberry." No big surprise, bananas are the most popular of the group, followed by strawberries. The latter are more seasonal though. Very seasonal then are cranberries as they are associated with esp. Thanksgiving and to a lesser extent with Christmas. I am puzzled by the recent and sudden surge of pineapples: maybe something to do with trade issues?
"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction... The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation." — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
