Rachel found an article on yams that makes Time Cube seem almost comprehensible in comparison:
“Ñame veggie might amaze you that it’s not a sweet potato. Sweet potato is completely different from Ńame. Although, In the united states, the two terms are used interchangeably regardless of their nature, taste, and appearance.
(Wait, What My whole life was a lie?)
So, What is it then?
Well. not really, As it’s still a mystery. Some count yam in several varieties of sweet potato while others call it a completely separate vegetable.
Fun Fact: In Asia, we find many carts selling yams as sweet potatoes, boiled and cut in finger-chips shape with a variety of local seasonings. That makes a simple yam a YUM!
Its Ńame, also known as Yam in Africa (from the word name) and Greater Yam in Asia. And it’s because the Dioscorea genus has a variety of plant species with a common name and that is Yam. This species of plant forms edible tubers.
The Ńame is grown in tropical and highly humid regions as a major cultivar. Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean are the major home of Ńame. All continents have different scientific names for species of this family, Dioscorea Rotundata, Dioscorea alata, and Dioscorea trifida.”
Some of the writing is completely bizarre:
“The Ńame is a tuber that is shaped like a bark itself. It has rough skin as compared to sweet potatoes. And yam is pointed like tipped from both edges. “
“Here are some counted steps to personalize a yam plant.”
“Another shock to your throat, it’s not a fattening veggie. Besides the rumor often attributed to Yams that they are sweet potatoes and are full of calories and fatten up the body a lot.”
It’s hard to find useful information on the web anymore. It’s all broken.
I think it’s only going to get worse as AI takes over and copies nonsense.
On Thursday I’ll share what happened when I asked an AI to write an article comparing yams and sweet potatoes. I think you’ll find it amusing.
