OIK: what's my rule?
This week's OIK Tickler is from Neal, who watched closely as I sorted a set of apples. We had already sorted by color and by size; "what's my rule for sorting this time?"
Pointing, Neal said, "Those are the sticking-up-things, and
are the not-sticking-up-things."
He was right: one group of apples had stems and the other didn't. What can we make of his general-yet-specific description? Post your responses in the comments!
