Out of all the eating utensils in the world, who thought it would be a good idea to eat rice with two sticks???
Well, I see yer humor... but it triggered this:

Bamboo is everywhere over there. Stop at any small (less than 3" diameter) bamboo, and bust off a section. Split the piece you busted off lengthwise with a knife or sharp rock.

Split that piece into two equal pieces, and you have a SANITARY eating utensil set. Rice is easily eaten with chopsticks. Even individual grains. TINS

I make them alla time. This guy does a good video of how to do it (and use them):

Just outside of those bamboo stands are hardwood trees. I'll whittle me a nice Teak spoon thank you. A little more complicated than two sticks but I think I can handle it.

The DMV is only horrible in the cities. Out here in the sticks going to get your tags is sort of a social event. Ya have to stand and talk to the other two people getting tags and all the clerks about anything going on at the court house and what new truck did ya get.

chopstix — learn to use 'em.
I've used wooden chopsticks to reach down into live wiring to retrieve a lost nut.
I can pick up a nut or a screw, just outta reach when I'm workin on one of them damned car engines, too.
No expensive claw tool needed.

My DMV is great, I went in the other day and I was out in 5-6 minutes, chatted with a cute young lady too...Almost always very quick.

And how good do they work with brass? Stainless steel? Wood parts? Or anything else non-ferrous?
I have cooking chopstix that are 18 inches long and there are others that are longer than that.
I tell ya, its a handy skill (Thanks go to my wife unit)

While that's true, bro... ya cain't get electrocuted with chopsticks.
Was in a small Asian country one time, not gonna say which one, anyway, I ordered a bowl of what was supposed to be chicken noodle soup. Waiter brought the soup and chopsticks, also brought me a spoon. I selected the spoon and ate my soup, it did taste like chicken noodle. A local man came in, sat at a table next to me, ordered the soup, they didn't bring him a spoon, he ate the soup with the chopsticks, got down to the broth and lifts the bowl to his mouth and drank the broth - what I woulda done at home - guess ya had to be there.

Oh, and I know not to stick a magnet anything into an electrical circuit - not an engine-ears either. Ha!
