Dear 100 Hour Board,
How can I eat a grapefruit without getting squirted in the eye? No matter what technique I use, the stupid fruit always spits at me.

A: Dear Amethyst,

I always peel mine and eat it like an orange. The segment membranes are pretty tough though, so I usually peel them off and just eat the juicy pulp stuff. Good luck!

-Blood oranges are better
