It’s the year 2010. We wake up, go to work, come home to sleep and in a few hours, go through the whole process again. We consider ourselves part of this modern society, and as we go through our day to day lives, we adapt to change and adjust not only ourselves but our daily regimen. Gone were the days when we relied on horses to pull our load and take us from one destination to another; these days, we rev up the engines in our fuel-burning cars to get to wherever it is we want to go. Everywhere you look, there are fast food chains offering quick fixes for anyone who starts to feel their stomach grumbling. These days, you will most likely be able to find any type of food inside a supermarket. You can get practically anything from different cuts of meat to rice and bread, vegetables of all shapes and sizes and of course, fruits. Fruits these days come in a number of packages; you can get them fresh by the piece or the pound; you can get them in boxes and crates; you can get them peeled or unpeeled; you can get them in a basket mixed in with a number of other fruits; you can get them in cans or in jars; you can even get them dried and enjoy them as snacks similar to potato chips and peanuts.
