I think about odd things. Like, the variability of the taste of fruit.
Imagine for a moment the SIN curve of the taste of an apple. Apples are fairly even keeled in my experience. A bad apple isn’t that bad, and the best apple isn’t that good. It’s sorta mid-range.
Now think of a pear. WAY more variable. The best pears are outlandishly delicious. So ridiculously good. And the worst pears are so bad that you can barely hold them.
Most fruit land somewhere in between apple and pear to me. I think plums may be more variable than pears, however I’m open to debate that.
So why does fruit variability matter? I’m not sure, I can definitely tie it together with venture capital, but I just find it an interesting way to measure the taste of fruit.
