How to break an apple into four slices

It's not that hard to break an apple into quarters
The human hand can do it without any trick or help. And don't let anyone tell you a green apple is easier to break than a red one. Colour doesn't matter. You just need to practise. Start with an apple that is easy to break like a golden delicious (green).  Then work yourself up the chain until you manage to break a granny smith (also green). If it is too hard for you, use your leg to support your hands.

The attached vid or the pics show you exactly how to do it.

Maybe you ask yourself why people break their apples apart....
1) It's way cool
2) It's even cooler when someone sees you break one apart as if it is the most natural thing in the world
3) you will instantly see if the core is okay.
4) if the seeds are not existent or if they are way to small or if they look unhealthy, think about pesticides and bury that poor thing.

Anyway, enjoy!!

Chuck Norris can do this with one finger.
Who is Chuck Norris?
look him up on Wikipedia, but he's a big internet meme. btw, a meme is something that became really famous on the internet, but there's a bunch of little things saying stuff about him, normally saying he's a superhuman that can do amazing feats.
What are feats, and is it possible they could fail me now?
Too many questions about obvious things!
feats are many things. They can test strength, endurance, flexibility, diet, and many others.
In summary, a feat is a trick that everyone doubts it is possible, yet it is possible by that person's ability to do things.
I hope EVERYONE understands.
What are obvious things?
I got a better question. What are apples. And what are magnets, and how to they work?

I tried a bunch with a whole bag of apples and failed, but tried a different one today and succeeded. So don't give up!

Note, when I did it, I used no twisting force, so not like rotating the two halves opposite directions. Instead, you pull it directly apart. That was a question I had when I was trying.

You say
"And don't let anyone tell you a green apple is easier to break than a red one. Colour doesn't matter."

Then you say

."Start with an apple that is easy to break like a golden delicious (green). "

So which is it?

nclarke gave a good explanation
Golden Delicious are easy to break and green, but Granny Smiths are hard to break and also green. It depends on the species, Golden Delicious just happens to be green.

Yes, that's right.
Sometimes GD's can also be yellow ...

i see some people are having a hard time with this. I learned a different way to do it that seems to be a little easier. If you stick your thumb in the top where the stem was and push on your thumb then it splits right in half really easy. Your way works too, just a tip for people who cant seem to do it.

There are also some youtube vids that show this method.
