Beets me! Less than three hundred years ago in rural Idaho a group of explorers discovered a flock of wild clydsdales living on a radish farm after the owners had mysteriously disappeared. Several days later never-before-seen plants started sprouting from the large mounds of horse feces that later were shown to contain a bitter root, which the new owners of the farm named horseradishes.

In 1957, the first of the major languages appeared in the form of FORTRAN. Its name stands for FORmula TRANslating system. The language was designed at IBM for scientific computing. The components were very simple, and provided the programmer with low-level access to the computers innards.

hey it’s ur boi here to fuck with your culinary-based perception of fruits

“where do strawberries fit in” WELL strawberries aren’t true fruits. Their seeds are the fruit (achenes) but the flesh is derived from other parts of the flower base. Blackberries and raspberries also aren’t berries - they’re clusters of individual drupes. Pineapples and mulberries aren’t simple fruits either - they’re both formed from many separate flowers whose fruits grow together. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This isn’t 100% comprehensive but covers most classifications. No ref links this time as all the content came from my NYBG Plant Morphology coursework.
