Hi all,
I've been studying javascript for about a week and wrote the following code just to test my knowledge...but I have a question: Why when the user types in "Bananas" in the prompt box with a capital B instead of "bananas" does it run the last condition instead of the first condition?

Code:
var $fruit = prompt('What fruit do monkeys like the most?', '');

if ($fruit == 'bananas') {
   document.write('That\'s right!');
}
 else if ($fruit == 'meat') {
  document.write('They are not carnivores, idiot!');
}
  else ($fruit != 'meat' && $fruit != 'bananas') {
   document.write('Your answer sucks!');
}
Of course, I could do it the lazy way and use the logical AND operator (&&) as:
Code:
if ($fruit == 'bananas' && $fruit == 'Bananas' )
but, is there a better way?

Thanks!
