Rules for Posting Guides on Our Community

1. Defining a Guide Guides are comprehensive reference materials, how-tos, or comparison tables. A guide must be well-organized both in content and layout. Information should be easily accessible without unnecessary navigation. Guides can include flowcharts, step-by-step instructions, or visual references that compare different elements side by side.

2. Infographic Guidelines Infographics are permitted if they are educational and informative. They should aim to convey complex information visually and clearly. However, infographics that primarily serve as visual essays without structured guidance will be subject to removal.

3. Grey Area Moderators may use discretion when deciding to remove posts. If in doubt, message us or use downvotes for content you find inappropriate.

4. Source Attribution If you know the original source of a guide, share it in the comments to credit the creators.

5. Diverse Content To keep our community engaging, avoid saturating the feed with similar topics. Excessive posts on a single topic may be moderated to maintain diversity.

6. Verify in Comments Always check the comments for additional insights or corrections. Moderators rely on community expertise for accuracy.

Community Guidelines

By following these rules, we can maintain a diverse and informative community. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to the moderators. Thank you for contributing responsibly!

Seriously what’s the point.

How is a salad fork any better than a commoner fork for a salad.

The same for most of these.

That is such an underrated movie.

Whenever I'm trying to get people to do something and they are ambivalent I always use the line "I thought I was teamed up with superheroes but I'm stuck here with Lazy Boy and the Recliner!" No one gets it.

I need that spaghetti fork.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago (1 children)

The list is disappointingly missing many variants, such as:

  1. The Spork (an invention commonly attributed to Samuel W. Francis, but which remains in doubt)
  2. The Knork, from the popular show Knork and Knindy (knanu-knanu)
  3. Neptune's trident (four out of five dentists recommend it)
  4. Cluster fork (as experienced by yours truly at least once per fortnight when production goes down)
  5. The most ancient and purest form of all: the monofork, aka kebap skewer

The knork was invented by Abraham Lincoln and Gandhi.

Hows a crab meant to hold that?

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

Yeah if it's a little one maybe, but if a crab can one-claw a knife then it can one-claw a fork. He's not a little crablet anymore, Charlene.

What if I'm having fish salad for dessert?

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago (2 children)

Table fork and salad fork are the same. Change my mind.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

Salad fork is usually slightly smaller, but that's about it.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

Well yeah, where else would you eat salad? The floor? Everyone knows that's where burgers are served.

Are the extra-thick tines on the fish and pie forks for cutting?

Italians

  • make weird noodles
  • need strange tools to eat them

South east asians

  • use literal sticks that chop
  • make overcomplicated food that just needs to be grabbed
  • breed special rice that sticks

Germans

  • Spoon go brrr
[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

I love sticky rice tho. Just saying.

Those Asians, they had some ideas, let me tell you.

And remember if you see a fork in the road, take it.

fine dining can go fork off

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago (2 children)

When appearances and etiquette become more important than the food ..... I'd rather have a box of KD and watch some Netflix in my underwear.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

Could be worse… could be like the old Japanese fine dining, where you’re just supposed to stare at the food and pretend to eat it.

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago (1 children)

With what kind of fork tho

[–] [email protected] 0 points 1 month ago

Fork? .... I'd use the same spoon I used to make the food and eat it straight from the pot to save myself from doing more dishes than I have to.
