Strange Life Ambitions

I was eating a Granny Smith earlier and having arrived at the core I put it in the bin.
One day I would love to pluck up the courage and eat the entire apple, core and all as I have seen others do.
What odd unfulfilled life ambitions do you have?

Cox's Pippin takes on a whole new meaning!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Strange Life Ambitions

I'd prefer not to eat apple cores (may contain pips). Apple pips are a source of cyanide?

It is in small amounts, but then you don’t need much!

Didn`t your mummy tell you that you should not eat the apple core, as an apple tree will grow inside you....... Roll eyes

Re: Strange Life Ambitions

My lifes ambition? To change the world somehow. No idea how but I always wanted to make a difference somehow. Lets face it though, that ain't gonna happen so it makes me wonder what the point of it all is anyway  Roll eyes
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Strange Life Ambitions

Years ago, I used to always eat complete apples.
Then one day I found a resident poking out of the core.  Shocked
I have erased form my memory any recollection of the resident being complete or not.

Re: Strange Life Ambitions

But to return to OP Strats' question; I have a silly ambition, to visit the London Planetarium at least once more in my life. I have seen the "show" several times and found it one of the most relaxing hour's or so imaginable.
But I never seem to be able to find the time these days.

That's one up on catching, cooking, and eating a mackerel on Chesil beach. Don't get so many opportunities to do that now.
So many people have no idea how good a really fresh fish tastes.

I've had enough contact with cyanide during my years maintaining a silver plating plant in Sheffield using silver cyanide so I will probably pass on the whole apple experience.
