I can. Although I still find rice a challenge.
but only fairly
My ex-girlfriend gave my lessons before having dinner with her parents, I'm still not very good though.
Your resume just gets better and better
Well, Cambodian to be precise.
Did you make her Khmer run Rouge?
I'll stop now.
is Icelandic people, who are ALL hot because they have a small gene pool
Did you Wreck his avik?
and bombing her carpet
One is cultured innit.
Rice is difficult.
he caught the fly in the first one.
he broke the ice in the second one.
but myagi would only have taught him how to use them if it had some secret karate moves involved.
show me paint a fence....AAAAAAAY!
rice is a bit daft with them though. Its more of a case of just piling on a shit load and holding them together.
I'd like to learn though.
My strategy for chinese food goes something like this...
Fork > Spoon > Hands.
it looks a bit silly to me. if the chinese could invent fireworks and clocks and build that big fucking wall how come they could only come up with little bits of wood to eat with?
that i needed three posts to emphasise.
you've made your point!
It stems from not wanting knives (= agression) on the dinner table. Or something.
it WAS three of your eyelashes?
Even little bits and pieces. Years of practice I suppose. You want to see me with a knife and fork though. That's LOLsome.
i have no desire to learn either. if i ever do go to the orient, i'll just keep a set of cutlery in my pockets.
Mind you, she is 47 and Chinese.
being in China kinda forced my hand and I became quite smug toward all the normals struggling with their rice.
get me with my skillz
i'm better at rice than noodles, because i always spill noodley stuff all over my face. Rice is easy if it's cooked properly, it should stick together.
having 4-year-old children laughing at you for not being able to eat properly is a big incentive to learn to do something well.
Sounds really fun.
"Teach English in Korea", you'll be overwhelmed by choice.
You don't (or didn't) need any TEFL qualifications or anything. It was tough, I only did it for a bit but it was pretty rewarding and some of the kids were brilliant.
Did you learn any Korean or anything? I only have 4 useless languages instead of any cool ones...
otherwise you're using the wrong rice for chop sticks.
I can do other things than eat with them too
stick them into your eye sockets?
pick a lock?
re-enact the blair witch project?
It would surely be 'sticking myself'
I've got a pair I can put in my hair, they're laquered of course so not so good for eating with.
It's on my CV under 'key skills'.
covering the time you worked for a Jamaican locksmith?
Fork > two sticks. Clearly.
to win a bet, can't use them to eat food though. Don't want to appear ethnocentric or anything but knives and forks are clearly superior
It's in the genes.
including arcing pieces of food across tables of people, when really said food should be going in my mouth.
Other things include:
- Minature sword battles
- Describing where you are to someone in relation to a crossroads
pretending you've been speared through the head, right? We've all been bored waiting for the food to arrive.
Micro-dwarfs, perhaps? Either way, it is their God-given right to joust should they want to.
using them to pluck a poisoned dart out of mid-air, fired by an assassin hiding in the shadows.
Although I once ate an enormous crab in Hong Kong and there was food up the walls after that one.
I grew up in Hong Kong
so he taught me well
