scorpion,

You are in America. Eat with a freakin fork.

are you a troll, or is this a level, or do you really believe this? if you do, i'm sad for you -- the range of human culture (including the different eating tools we've developed) is so fascinating. too bad you don't appreciate it.


some fraction and/or ordinal numberFalcon,

i have never used the toilet apparatus pictured, but i do know how to use it: drop, squat, and roll (approximately).


surprisingly large contingent of spoon-users,

wow, i had no idea. i can't recall ever being given a spoon at a chinese restaraunt that wasn't either a large serving spoon or a soup spoon presented with soup. actually i guess i've eaten dessert with a spoon (that mango custard stuff with condensed milk, e.g. mmmmmm.)

i again ask all of you: are you asking the waiter to bring you a spoon? are you using the serving spoon? failing a spoon, are you asking for a bowl to put the fried rice in?


el d,

i'm surprised you won't expend a little imagination on the scenario i've proposed. it's like a scene out of _better off dead_: exchange student comes down to breakfast, whitebread mom sets out chopsticks for exchange student, exchange student attempts to spear Cheerios like rings in a ring toss, hilarity ensues. this is but one of many examples; adsman posted another.

besides, doesn't it strike you as a little noteworthy that this give-white-guy-the-fork scenario is so common but complementary scenarios seem so unusual? i have been asked many times by waiters if this is my first time eating ethiopian food, but i've never been brought a fork nor have i been instructed in what to do with the injera[**].


[**] as a cosmopolitan bay area resident, i assume you are familiar with the ins and outs of ethiopian cuisine. on your side of the bay, i particularly enjoy Cafe Axum, though there is at least one restaraunt near the berkeley/oakland border that might be better. i am again open to recommendations if anyone has them -- especially for ethiopian places in vegas!

tc,

"i'm surprised you won't expend a little imagination on the scenario i've proposed."

As a slightly amusing Candid Camera type situation, sure, whatever. But in the context of doing something that parallels your fork experience, no, it's a ridiculous comparison.

"doesn't it strike you as a little noteworthy that this give-white-guy-the-fork scenario is so common but complementary scenarios seem so unusual?"

No, not at all.

"i assume you are familiar with the ins and outs of ethiopian cuisine."

Yeah, no wonder Ethiopians are starving w/ that crap for food.

My mom used to take me to Blue Nile in Berkeley when I was a kid. God it was so good.

This is because chopsticks are a stupidly designed implement for eating food. Can you eat steak with chopsticks? Bread? Spaghetti? The best designed would be a spork and knife.

lol at the person who invented chop sticks. seriously, two sticks, thats all you can think of? probably the worst idea ever. Even 2 round ovals would be better than sticks.

Fried rice is a dish made for white Americans.
It should be served with a fork.

i eat just about everything with chopsticks since i've been married with the obvious exception of steak.

i love it and they are a hell of a lot easier to wash.
