Speaking of chopsticks...

...they are impossible.  Really.  And unless you've built up extra muscles in the meaty part of your palm and you can pop your shoulder out of its socket I wouldn't even bother trying to eat with them.

Wow, Stace, that's a pretty random topic.

Not so.  I just managed to finish off a plate of rice, using chopsticks, 8 grains at a time.  It took me so long, the first few bites have already been digested and the last few were cold.

So, although I have a great deal of respect for those who can eat their meals with chopsticks in under an hour, I am now forever grateful for the invention of the fork; the tool that neither teaches me patience nor encourages a healthy rate of consumption.
