rinse. The word of the day is rinse. Got it?

A binary operator is one that requires two operands. In this case there are two classes of operands, the binary operator requires one item from either class. The result of the operation can be assigned to a third variable, like so:

banana_in_pieces = knife <cutting> banana

Here the operator is <cutting>, the two operands being respectively knife and banana. The result is stored in banana_in_pieces. The general form is shown below.

variable = [common culinary device] <operation> {fruit, vegetable}

Now you may ask "why is this interesting?" and understandably "how is this related to the word of the day?". I will keep you in suspense no longer. You see, after you perform a culinary operation on an object of the class which contains fruits and vegetables, thou shalt not leave the above mentioned common culinary device for later cleaning, thou shalt rinse it and leave it to dry. That way, tiny bits of fruit will not dry on a knife which has to be washed with detergent later.

Seinfeld trivia. "Never mind who I am, I know who I am, do you know who you are?" Who said it and when?

    In most "introduction to programming" kind of books, you will get that kind of instruction on how to add two numbers.

    No, it's from the episode where George fought Mike Moffet over the parking space they both felt entitled to. Finally Sid comes along and Mike says "who are you?". Sid responds with the quote above.
