(04-26-2016 04:50 AM)H1N1 Wrote:  The knife and fork are wonderfully illustrative of some of the best qualities of civilized refinement. They represent patience and self-control - refusal to give into gluttony or be overtaken by vice - whilst recognising that eating is a fundamentally practical affair that must be accomplished in the most efficient manner (preserving the virtues already mentioned). This measured, methodical approach in the face of temptation, which recognizes delayed gratification as one of the great goods, is perhaps the primary reason that we in the west have shaped the world and made it what it is today.

The use of a spoon, or the hands, is illustrative of the cultural deficiencies of other nations that have not achieved the same kind of progress as we in the west have. It shows a lack of self control, and a willingness to be overcome by the prospect of immediate satisfaction - a lack of discipline.

Equally, the Asian method of eating with chopsticks shows an excessive, contrived refinement that fails to recognise the fundamentally practical process of eating for nourishment. It is an ostentatious show of wealth and leisure. It is almost an attempt to deny the fundamental utility of eating.

That was a lot of nicely typed broscience.

Using your own logic, using chopsticks shows more control (more difficult, requires more precision), and more delated gratification due to using chopsticks being more difficult.

As for chopsticks being a show of wealth ..they are made out of sticks. And can be made with a rusty knife.

Im surprised (actually, not really) to see people on this forum heavily like/rep a post just because it makes them feel good about being from the west, without actually appraising what's being written.

RE: Why do Westerners/Anglos eat with a knife and fork(instead of a fork and spoon)?
Knives are just more handy. I always have a knife on me. I use it to cut cheese and a stick of meat of some sort for lunch, with a loaf of bread I tear pieces off of. I use it for everything else throughout the day too. Anything else is unnecessary weight.
For dinner, if it's not soup, I use a fork and a knife I don't put down. I use the knife to move food to the fork if need be, but always have the knife in hand. I never thought about t, it's just habit.

RE: Why do Westerners/Anglos eat with a knife and fork(instead of a fork and spoon)?
It's funny how the framing of the question tends to constrain the answers.

Obviously, it's best to use Fork, Spoon, and Knife. All three are necessary. This is why sporks are such an abomination. They are poor at being spoons, and poor at being forks, and obviously both are necessary.

To be fair, Western peasants were probably just as low down the pecking order as the Oriental peasants. Yet they worked out that if you start with a bigger bit of wood Big Grin you can just as easily fashion a wooden spoon or fork.

Personally I enjoy eating off wooden plates.

Re: scissors, they can actually be pretty handy. One of my exes would use my kitchen shears to cut up our homemade pizza, first time I ever saw that done. Works like a charm.

I usually just use a big chef knife to slice up pizza these days. Those rolling pizza cutters are bullshit.

RE: Why do Westerners/Anglos eat with a knife and fork(instead of a fork and spoon)?
I got raised using a fork and knife, but got into the habit of using a form to put the food in the spoon, then bringing the food to my mouth using the spoon. Knife is only used to eat steak.

I still prefer eating with my hands. Nothing better than eating rice with your bare hands. When nobody's looking, that's what happens.

Otherwise I enjoy chopsticks in most situations.

I suspect the fact that there was at least a hint of deliberate absurdity about the whole thing was not lost on at least some of them (actually, they probably all got it).

Beyond that, I am a cheap like-whore - there's no depth too base and despicable for me to plumb for a single 'like'.

Apart for the British Empire thing. That was sincere and noble. I don't joke about that.

RE: Why do Westerners/Anglos eat with a knife and fork(instead of a fork and spoon)?
The average knife and fork are something for r-selected cucked beta wimpish male feminist SJWs who buy appetizers.
Real men at least use a knife like that:

Only allowed if freshly made from the sharks you like to wrestle regularly with your bare hands to stay in shape.

If no sharks are available, a machete is ok too, as long as you personally quenched the blade by ramming it into a wild lion or grizzly bear.

Fork must look like something like this:

[Image: Bear-claws-to-tear-flesh-points-meat-a-b...t-fork.jpg]

Real alpha men use a real bear's claw, obviously.

If ever in the unfortunate situation of needing a spoon, the skull of your slain arch enemy is an acceptable tool.
Can also be used for drinks:

RE: Why do Westerners/Anglos eat with a knife and fork(instead of a fork and spoon)?
Chopsticks are annoying as fuck. They're simply an inferior tool. The only positive is that someone who can use them very well has gained significant dexterity in order to do so.

I actually am a big fan of spoons. I prefer to cut up all my food into bite-size portions and then use a spoon to eat them (or a fork). I don't want to sit there and pick up the knife over and over and cut before each bite. It's more efficient to cut it all up at once and then enjoy each bite without delay.

I don't mind using a fork and do so when it's required, but if it's more efficient to use a spoon, I'd rather use a spoon.

I guess I'm a fan of each tool for it's best purpose.

Hands are the most natural, R-selected and Alpha way to eat.

If you use forks, knives, spoons or chopsticks you're effectively being cuckolded by the utensil. The food's been penetrated multiple times by strange utensils and you still opt to eat it? Have fun eating your Alpha fork's leftovers you cucks.

I'm gonna guess when something gets correlated with cucking it's officially jumped the shark.
