Warning: Don't eat apples!

Stop it! It's NOT an apple! You know the myth that the Adam's apple was named like so because Adam ate of the 'apple' in the garden of Eden? Who said it was an apple to begin with?! *rawr* See, that's how the Bible gets distorted over time, through myths and the like. (And if it really was an apple, why are we still eating is so happily??)

Read (or listen) carefully now:

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?" The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. (Genesis 3:1-6, NIV)
So, how did it become an apple?? *puzzled* But it's amazing how many people actually think that apples caused humanity's downfall...

Thinking about apples, I can't help but think about the iPhone.
I know, I know, I'm becoming really mainstream
and annoying of late. I actually am thinking of becoming an Apple convert! *gasps* But the reason why I've been thinking of Apple a lot recently is really because of the event I'm in the midst of organizing - It's constantly on my mind these days.

A little bit of shameless advertising: SMUS (also known as StartMeUp@Stockholm) will be a 2 day 1 night camp for youth to learn about entrepreneurship, then go out and be actual entrepreneurs for the duration of the camp.

We're hoping to get smartphone product loan sponsors (well they can give it to us if they like! :P), which will be used to film and livestream what the participants are doing throughout the camp. (Think: Live paparazzi!) So if you know anyone who has phones to spare/is working in a telco company/is working in Apple/Sony Ericsson/Nokia, drop me a mail at followSMUS at gmail dot com! :D
