Mmmmm... Grilled pineapple & Iowa Chops (A 1.25 - 1.5" thick, fresh center cut pork chop, weighing in at 10-15 ounces. The term was coined by the Iowa Pork Producers Association in 1976 because of the high quality and quantity of pork produced in Iowa).

The fruitlets of a pineapple are arranged in two interlocking spirals, eight spirals in one direction, thirteen in the other; each being a Fibonacci number (sequence of numbers where the next number is the sum of the two previous). This is one of many examples of Fibonacci numbers appearing in nature.

Since about 2000, the most common fresh pineapple fruit found in U.S. supermarkets is a low-acid hybrid that was developed in Hawaii in the early 1970s. Fresh pineapple is often somewhat expensive as the tropical fruit is delicate and difficult to ship. Pineapples can ripen after harvest, but require certain temperatures for this process to occur. The ripening of pineapples can be rather difficult as they will not ripen for some time and in a day or two become over-ripe, therefore, pineapples are most widely available canned. To tell if a pineapple is ripe at a grocery store, make sure the "eyes," or markings on the fruit, are uniform in size from top to bottom.

Colin is just trying to downplay the nerdy reputation he's built up through previous comments ;)

Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I' d like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
