    The food SME of the family suggests putting it in the window - preferably one with sunlight some of the day.

    How to Ripen Avocados Fast
    Avocados do not ripen on the tree; they ripen or “soften” after they have been harvested. To speed up the avocado ripening process we recommend placing unripe avocados in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana for two to three days until they are ripe.

    We do not recommend any other method of ripening avocados.

    I don't want guacamole I want to cut up a damn avocado and put it in my cucumber and tomato salad or on my eggs in the morning. Damn things are like weapons, Daniel could have used one to beat Goliath!

    as some of you know, i have been riding a scooter/motorbike and the subway for many years. now i have a miata, which i like. but i am not an expert on car maintenance. my understandoign is that synthetic oil is superior. it costs more, but who cares when engines cost 10 grand or whatever.

    should i buy and use synthetic oil at all times? seems like i should. shouldnt everyone?

    walmart has guacamole in a sealed tube and its fantastic. normall guac goes bad in roughly 12 seconds when exposed to air. but the tube does the job and its fancy tacos for days with fresh looking guac

    the 3000 mile thing is a marketing scam in the US. stick with what the manual calls for. probably full synthetic. change it every 7500 miles or 6 months.
