I can't use chop sticks. Can you?
>>18618709Yes. Because I learnt how to use pencils when I was 5 with those gay ass squishy things
>>18618709Yeah, I'm actually really deft with them too
>>18618714>those gay ass squishy thingsPenises?
>>18618758I was born in 1964.I have never seen, nor heard of these.But you're right, they look gayer than John Wayne and Clint Eastwood making out.
>>18618709I can. I mean i'm not very good but i've managed to pick shit up with them now. I remember i used to be complete dogshit with them but now i can at least manage.
>>18618709Yes. I use them for noodles and rice. I tried using a fork for noodles recently after a few months of chopsticks. Forks really are awful for noodles.
>>18619309>Forks really are awful for noodles....said some nigger that never heard of a spoon.Get your shit together.
>>18618709Yeah it's easy. I kind of prefer them to forks and knives nowadays
>>18618709no because a fork is superior
>>18618709Of course, I even cook with them
No and I can’t hold a pencil well either. I was left handed in kindergarten but my black teacher ms binberry didn’t like that so she’s hit my hand with a ruler until I switched to the write. Now both hands are just shitty :(
The trick is you need to move only one of the sticks, not both like a thong.
>>18619309Forks are great for noodles if you're not a clumsy bitch.
>>18619536>not both like a thong.????REALLY curious as to what this is supposed to mean.Thong like flip-flops?Thong like underwear?Neither has sticks.What planet are you from?
>>18619536based esl retard
>>18618709use a bowl of popcorn to learn. They are easy enough to grab and help you get the motion down
>>18619547Probably preference, but eating a bowl of soupy noodles with chopsticks is just so comfy. Good bite size control, easier to dunk your bite, and you can kinda lift the noods as you eat them.>>18619328Have you tried eating chips with a spoon also? I hear fellow POCs reccomend it highly.
Yes, but apparently I hold them wrong.
>>18618709OP pic can't use them eitheryou gweilo all have problems because you're trying to do with 2 fingers what you should be doing with 3, in a pencil grip<- this is the proper holdpractice makes perfect
I'm a huge weeb and I can't use them fast enougheven went on a date with an asioid. it was so embarassing. actually makes me buthurt.I would probably give up and bring fork with me everywhere.they are also stupid and retarded and yes I learned how to use them. it is dumb to eat with sticks
>>18620005>use 3 fingers gweilo>image shows all 5 fingers in use>>18619748Idk my man
>>18620053>use 3 fingers gweiloah rightI meant on the upper stickthat's the difference between OP and my pic>pictongsno "h"
>>18620005I have nerve damage in my hand from playing sports and/or jerking off way too much, my ring finger don't work like that no more.
>>18620167>no "h"I prefer them with a h to be honest
>>18620005This is how I always used chopsticks and always had the suspicion I was doing it wrong lol
>>18620188You have two hands
>>18620467I ain't fuckin' Inigo Montoya.
>>18618709I can use them to a certain degree, but I fumble and drop them a lot.
Learned from the many trips during childhood to Dad's favourite cheap Chinese restaurant. Moved bacl down to the city, temporarily lived in a room with large Chinese family, communal meals every day. All of them were about middle age or elderly. For a month they laid out a fork for me, I asked for the sticks.All through dinner asking me questions, how I learned. I asked what the surprise was about, they said they hadn't seen a white guy use chopsticks better than their children.
I get really triggered when I go to an asian restaurant and there's all these ypeepo eating with chopsticks like it's nothing. it's like they all must be pretending. asians practice them when they're little and at school etc.
>>18618709Incorrectly, yes.I can eat with them just fine, no difficulty. But I look at guides on how to hold them and it's obvious I'm holding them wrong.
>>18619387Same here but my teacher was white.
>>18620005fucking southern pig. only jungle trash use chop sticks that way.
Technically no, and I'm Asian. Apparently the "proper" way to use them is to use the middle finger as the pivot point like in OP's pic, but I use my index finger instead.
>>18621481You'll know when you're out of middle school
>>18619763>Have you tried eating chips with a spoon also????
>>18621453>>18621491If it works, you're not doing it wrong.
>>18621637Thanks, anon. I actually needed to hear that.
>>18621724>>18621637>>18618709im chinese and I cant do it "right" either, my sticks don't have the separation. Wasn't taught by properly when young and it stuck. but yeah who cares, it works and i use them daily
For some reason there’s another chopsticks thread and there are a lot of different ways to hold them, although some look like jokes to me.
>>18622005I'm probably closest to Idle Thumb>dating a Taiwanese girl as a gweilo>Father says he's going to grade my chopstick skills based on how I pick up a fish ball>he's serious>Grab a fish ball and eat it>"...C minus"
>>18618709yes but I also don't see the pointknowing how to use chopsticks is like knowing how to ride a unicycle
I can't eat a steak with chopsticks or a brisket or fried chicken why the fuck would I want these useless tools?
eat this with chopstickskek
Can you eat these with chopsticks?
>>18619763>and you can kinda lift the noods as you eat them.yeah thats generally how you eat stuff
>>18620005That isn't a pencil grip. If you hold a pencil with the base of your middle finger and not the side then you're actually retarded.
>>18622072>>18622087>poke meat with chopstick>cut off a piece
>>18618778they're for kids with motor issues or poor muscle tone who can't grip like normies (basically drooling retards, like >>18618714)
>>18622033did you ram the chopsticks through his little slit eyes?
>>18622157Nah, I said xie xie like a good boy
>>18621459>billions of years of evolution to develop hands>use your incredibly complex hand and fingers to grab 2 sticks to hold your foodfor what? just grab the food directly
>>18622087Yes. By serving it cut up to bite size pieces. Or because you are not supposed to eat alone with 4 chopsticks or more you can eat it like that by helping each other to hold and tear pieces off.
>>18618709Yes, I can actually. Apparently I do it wrong though, since I don't do it the way that is shown in your picture. I put the tip of my middle finger directly on the upper stick rather than putting the stick on the side of my finger like your pic shows. That's so awkward and barbaric if you ask me, but apparently that's how asians do it. I taught myself as a very young child and I can use chopsticks with comparable precision to any asian I've ever met, but I guess my way is a little different.
>>18622243You can eat steak with chopsticks, I assure you.
>>18622244Come on man they are inferior and you know it even if you can do it or not , you know eating a steak or pork chop is alot easier with fork and knifechopsticks are good for noodles
>>18622005Righthand rule is how I hold them. No one ever really taught me the 'proper' way or whatever
>>18622005Ah, very cool the "Vulcan" is what I was referring to in this post. >>18622242
>>18622261True. I just look at the ability to use chopsticks as a useful little skill to have. Believe it or not, I sometimes even use chopsticks as a tool for various tasks outside of eating. Sometimes you need to manipulate something, but don't want to use your fingers, don't want to damage it with a fork, and needle nose pliers aren't delicate enough, chopsticks are what you need.
>>18622033Don't forget, you were being judged not only on performance, but also conformity.
>>18622290>that jacketEnglish cuisine is disgusting.>just eat this monkey mate>put a dab of Colman's and some pey wet on it mate>monkeylicious innit
>>18621589He didn't say fork and spoon.>>18622101Nono. I mean when half of them are in your mouth already you can nicely lift the rest and help them up to your mouth.
>>18622353You can do that with a fork. There are multiple tines. Strands of food naturally weave between them.
>>18618709Sure. Took about 15 mins to learn to use the standard grip here in >>18622005.
>>18622353Or just spin the noodles on a fork and you don't look like a slobbering pig
>>18618778Damn nigga you old as fuck
>>18622353>He didn't say fork and spoon.He seemed confused/uninformed about the use of a spoon with a fork to twirl noodles.I'm really not sure _what_ he meant by "Have you tried eating chips with a spoon also?".Just seems incoherent.
>>18622396>you old as fuckhttps://youtu.be/cZUxDcza4dM?t=10
>>18618709Yeah I can. Although I'm not great at eating rice with them.
>>18618758Oh shit, I remember these things. I think my memories of them are exclusively from middle school.>>18622150They also helped with preventing pain when you're writing constantly for hours. Or maybe those were something very similar.
>>18619387Were lefties the original trannies?
>>18622005Righthand rule is me.
>>18622164Why is this a reply to me getting beaten as a child for being left-handed?
>>18618709Yes and I'm actually very good with them. My wife and I have eaten sushi at the same place once a week for like 6 years now
>>18622390>>18622356NOODLETS.>>18622591Eating long ass noodles with just a spoon is as retarded as eating big ass chips with a spoon. It is not thst difficult. My fellow POC.
how do asians eat a steak in restaurant? anyone have video footage?
it seems like for steak they slice them into thin strips or chop up the meat before serving like for a little babybut then a lot of the juice leaks out of the meat and it cools faster
>>18622859>long ass noodles with just a spoon is as retarded asWow, you REALLY are confused.Jesus, just look at the pic:>>18621589It's really a shame you don't fucking know how to eat god-damned noodles, for fuck's sake.Get your shit together.https://youtu.be/4J4zA9OYIco
>>18622884>how do asians eat a steak in restaurant?They've got these places now, called "Japanese Steak Houses".You should check one out, really good stuff.
>>18622884Chef pre-cuts the steak for them.
>>18623047>not knowing what the word "just" means, or having any ability to contextualize anything.NGMI.
>>18623077I do know what "just" means.It means you somehow thought:>>18622859>Eating long ass noodles with just a spoon...that I was recommending eating noodles with JUST a spoon, despite posting a pic with both knife and spoon involved.Not sure what your damage is, but I'd suggest you either put the crack pipe down, or "just" stop posting.
>>18623098Oops: "both FORK and spoon".Maybe I need to stop drinking whiskey so early in the day.
>>18618709Yes. I challenged myself to eat with chopsticks for every meal for a few years. I can use chopsticks to transfer a glass full of marbles to another glass without making a clink.
Yes, I'm asian
>>18623104>>18623098Classic freudian slip. You chop your noodles into bits small enough to only need a spoon, you filthy animal.
>>18618709Yeah, they're pretty useful for getting pickles out of jars without poking them
>>18623119>You chop your noodles into bits small enough to only need a spoonWOW, you just refuse to understand this, don't you?Starting to suspect you're just a troll.On the long shot you genuinely don't understand how to eat noodles with a fork and spoon, here's something WAY to clear for you to pretend you still don't get it:https://youtu.be/VXWT5MXRs_8?t=50https://youtu.be/q4wegP6fz5k?t=37...ok, so Eye-Ties (allegedly) don't like this method, but what the fuck do they know?When's the last time they won a war?Have they been to the moon?etc...
>>18623137Obviously I know how to do the twisty twirly with a fork and spoon. It's stupid, annoying, and inefficient especially when compared with just using chopsticks on noods. Also who in their right mind would do the twisty twirly with ramen noodles? Are you a troll?
>>18623149>Obviously I know how to do the twisty twirly with a fork and spoon.Not so obvious since you keep pretending I'm advocating for spoon-only eating.Last response you'll get from me, Mr. Sea-Lion.
>>18623156>Thinking sea lions could write English or type on a computer. NGMI.
>>18622087>3-2-1 baby back ribs.jpgAbsolutely. They are so overcooked at that point you could pick the meat right off no problem.
