One of my least favorite things people say is, "You can't really compare those two things. That's like comparing apples to oranges."

For instance, apples and oranges have a lot more in common than, say, apples and Norm Chomsky [editor's note: Noam Chomsky. In my defense the "A" and "R" keys are right next to each other].
And with that, please enjoy comparing and contrasting this apple riding fast down a loose, steep track:
