As far as porn goes, I've seen some pixellated and some left unadultrated ()

As for the computer games, I've only seen advertisements, which are not pixellated.

They use twice as much (or more) silverware than anyone else, showing their obvious disdain for the common man's hatred of washing silverware.

My European wife uses a fork and knife to eat pizza. Incredibly inefficient.

Europeans spend too much time talking about literature and art. Thats chick stuff. Are they embarassed to admit they don't know anything about sports and cars?

They only speak about literature and art to impress Americans. 70% of real life conversations in Europe are about soccer.

I was at lunch a week ago and my colleague was eating a pizza with a knife and fork too. I could only think of how unfun to eat that pizza must have been. Easpecially since it was damn good pizza

My wife (born and raised in Texas) also does the fork-and-knife thing with pizza. Weirds me out a bit, since she doesn't do that with ribs, which are far messier.

We were in an airport (in Houston) and saw two older european men eating hamburgers with forks and knives. Inefficient, but at the same time they weren't in a hurry to get anywhere and seemed to enjoy their meal, which some of us don't always remember to do. Then again we don't often have beer with our lunch either - that might have helped it a bit.

I eat potato chips with an oyster fork and a cheese knife.

Putting aside merely functional conversation (e.g. "please pass the salt," "do you know where the bathroom is?") I would have thought this figure would have been much, much higher.

I despise people who compulsively follow professional sports and talk all the time about them. It is the most plebian trait one can develop.

Do you know any good hotels in Paris under $400? Ken Pollock wants to know and I think you'd get along with him.


j., do we have a troll smiley?

Really? I would have put burping, farting, and picking your nose in public ahead of talking about professional sports as far as "plebian" traits are concerned. Hmm...

Some pizza is too thin to pick up easily. Some pizza is too loaded with toppings or thick-of-crust to take polite bites. What kind of idiot issues a blanket statement that it's anathema or required to use or not use utensils?

Heaven forfend we act like plebes!
Scorning fun and interesting things because one considers such plebian pleasures to be unworthy of one's exalted status is the most large-piece-of-lumber-up-the-ass traits one can develop.

Some variation of this needs to be an official forum motto.

Blanket statements are always completely stupid. Only an idiot would make a blanket statement.
