You guys use wooden forks? And they only have two tines?

That's pretty standard on any sea-front / beach area doing fast food in the UK.   Chips (aka proper chips, not french fried chips), mussels, ****les, etc all tend to come with those wooden forks in that style.   Also, a lot of fish and chip joints provide them if you're just asking for a bag of chips.

is worth noting that a fork, pretty much by definition, is two tines. fork in a road. military fork.  etc.  a trident has three tines. am not sure o' the etymology o' the word, but wouldn't be shocked if the pitchfork is where things all fell apart. 

even so, back in the day when we first saw those wooden euro fast-food forks, we thought they were something an unapologetic evil doctor might use in their practice. "stick out your tongue and say "ah.""

HA! Good Fun!

GD who do you like the most on this forum? Remember I always support you  on most things like gun control and I often " like "  most of your posts which reflects friendship? And unlike Gromnir I dont disagree with you on Constitutional issues and we both agree on property rights and how you dont  need to rely on the state to fund your lifestyle 

It must be me ...right :teehee:

Went to the dentist for routine cleaning and check-up (no cavities) then took my car in for service (no cavities there, either).

Lucky bastard, I have/had 4 cavities in my teeth when I went to check. Still have one temporary filling to fix.

My car's fine though!

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L.

Reminds me of my "pasta and cheese" days where I would raid the exotic cheese section, grab some butter and garlic, and start shredding.  It was absolutely delicious and then some but those calories were a body destroyer.   Brain and body are quite incompatible most of the time it seems.

I loves me some cheese, the sharper and "funkier" (blue/feta/goat) the better, so Id try curds too. Somehow someway Ive just never crossed paths with a plate of them. 

If you ever want advice on cheese let me know, I have dedicated the last 25 years of my life to the study of cheese and what cheese compliments what food and what is the best way to eat cheese without unintentionally neutralizing its taste with, for example a salty biscuit, certain accompaniments

I eat all cheeses with my overall favorite being 5 year + mature Cheddar  and Roquefort the classic French blue cheese but I do love all cheeses  in different ways. For example I use only Swiss\Austrian\French cheese in the cheese fondues I make 

But in the interests of veracity their is 1 cheese I probably wont eat, its colloquially called Maggot Cheese and is found in  Sicily....but most of us wouldnt eat cheese with live maggots in it even though its apparently delicious

Yeah, that one is prohibited by arms embargo (if not, it should be)

 

Best kind of cheese is deep fried Camembert with blueberry jam

It is illegal in the EU nowadays but its still available on the Sicilian black market, the article I posted even specifically mentions this ...but Gorthfuscious since when do you and I  listen to the unreasonable laws of all these corrupt and Capitalist systems. You know they  just want to perpetuate inequality, us anarchists reject such laws because they represent nothing short of loss of true sovereignty, attempts to undermine culture, continued implementation of neo-colonialism  and the rights of individuals to live in free and fair societies. Maggot cheese forever !!!   

And your cheese love of deep fried Camembert ,and Brie is basically the same , is an example of how those cheeses when baked or deep fried become better and the taste more pronounced. Because normally strong jams like blueberry would negate the relatively mild taste of Camembert but  when you heat it or melt  it then those jams are the perfect accompaniment  🧀

Here is what the link says about the whole illegal nature of Maggot Cheese 

According to some food scientists, it is possible for the larvae to survive the stomach acid and remain in the intestine, leading to a condition called pseudomyiasis. There have been documented cases of pseudomyiasis with P. casei.[13][14]

Because of European Union food hygiene-health regulations, the cheese has been outlawed, and offenders face heavy fines.[12] However, some Sardinians organized themselves in order to make casu martzu available on the black market, where it may be sold for double the price of an ordinary block of pecorino cheese.[10][8] As of 2019, the illegal production of this cheese was estimated as 100 tonnes (98 long tons; 110 short tons) per year, worth 2-3 m€.[15]

Attempts have been made to circumvent the Italian and EU ban by having casu martzu declared a traditional food[8] (it has been made in the same manner for more than 25 years, and it is therefore exempt from ordinary food hygiene regulations). The traditional way of making the cheese is explained by an official paper of the Sardinian government.[16]

Casu martzu is among several cheeses that are not legal in the United States.[17]

I used to get weird looks from the boys at school for my lunch time reveal. They'd have their chunky 80's / 90's lunchboxes with sandwiches in clingfilm, piece of fruit and can of coke.

I'd pull out a slim tupperware box and peel the lid off to reveal selections of mini-cheeses, chicken panyang, onion bhaji, baby octopi in sunflower oil, or some mixture along those lines.

That sounds amazing, you got great lunches

Do you remember what types of mini-cheeses you use to get and how come your folks were so generous with your school lunches, are they gastronomes? I mean who has baby octopi for school lunch ...I am very envious but to honest I didnt use to eat any food like that until I was 26-27 and I moved to JHB

Nothing too amazing. Austrian smoked, various cheddars, brie, old amsterdam, manchego, yorkshire blue, lancashire cheeses, etc. It was a varied assortment over time.

Not necessarily gastronomes, but we'd done a fair bit of traveling and been exposing to a wide variety of food types, and the local supermarket had a really good deli selection. Actually I think getting those pieces was about the same cost as getting all the components for "normal" sandwiches and assorted stuff.

Combine that with parents who were very open to those different food types and didn't always have time or energy to make sandwiches, made it simpler for mom to pick that sort of thing up and just divide it up and pack it in a lunchbox since it didn't actually need any preparation.

Some Eurojank RPG should implement this as a food source that gives various character enhancements/detractors.
