how to tell whether a watermelon is ripe 🍉
It’s really easy to tell if a watermelon is ripe! First off: thumping doesn’t help, and weight isn’t really a good indicator. But that’s okay because the easiest way to tell is by color. Look for a spot on the melon that’s lighter in color than the rest of the rind: this is the spot that was touching the ground while the melon was growing! If that spot is white, the melon isn’t good yet. When that spot turns yellow, the watermelon is ripe!
how to tell if a pear is ripe, this will change your relationship to pears
None of you know how to ripen a pear and that’s okay! I am here to help. A perfectly ripe pear is one of life’s great joys but most folks don’t know how to identify one! So they get a bad rap.
The thing is, pears ripen from the core outward, so by the time the flesh is soft on the outside it’s too late! What you want to do is feel the flesh right around the stem, when it's soft the pear is ripe. Try it! 🍐
hello just a reminder that the idea that extra curricular stuff being attached as part of improving your chances for getting into high quality universities was created only because POC were starting to meet pace with white kids when it came to academic ability and they needed a new gate for them to pass :)
Also a reminder that university rankings are fake marketing bullshit and that if you used legit systems you’d see that multiple hbcus rank *higher* than lots of ivy leagues :) :)
