Yeah, and this is something those spoon eaters have to learn. At some point in life, you have to take responsibility for yourself. No safe space where you get chopped food. Some will feel now offended, as victims of the patriarchal knife society that want you to take responsibility for your own food habits. With a spoon you can just spoon and spoon again this food into your mouth without the hard labour of self improvement to cut it.
Some will call it spoon shaming and feel triggert, but in the long run only by our own power we can rise to greatness. This include, nobody will chop your food!

I hate those social spoon warriors!

We will stand tall in the sunshine
With the truth upon our side
And if we have to go alone
We'll go alone with pride


For us, these conflicts can be resolved by appeal to the deeply ingrained higher principle embodied in the law, that individuals have the right (within defined limits) to choose how to live. But this Western notion of individualism and tolerance is by no means a conception in all cultures. - Theodore Dalrymple

Because spoon is for low energy spoon-fed losers. Sad.

Mods please move this >100 post meditation on mastication into the Deep Forum. There's a lot of ins and outs and what have yous concerning food utensils so we should focus the Aleph-class hive mind that is the Deep Forum on optimizing the get in mah belly issue.

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.

Only an Englishman could write something so eloquently about such a mundane thing like forks and knives. The queen would be proud.

H1N1 could you do a post where you compare and contrast other things? I have a few suggestions:

1. Opening a door vs door beads
2. Pants vs a turban
3. Toe-may-toe vs Ta-Mah-Toe
4. Chips vs Fries
5. Left hand driving vs right hand driving

In the end, I ended up just throwing the whole plate of food at him and telling him to go fuck himself. Fucking dickhead with his retarded eating habits.

Ok I didn't, but maybe I should have. If you eat with a spoon and fork you don't eat enough meat. How are you meant to cut a steak with a spoon? A knife and spoon would be better. The spoon and fork are pretty similiar.

God damn I love this country.

God save the Queen!

If only they could have gotten around to inventing dentistry.

That would have been the cherry on the ice cream sundae of success for a little fraction of a tiny little island.
