    I use chopsticks in Chinese restaurants (the only real Asian restaurants I've eaten at were Chinese) and at some of my relatives' homes. Part of my family is Chinese through marriage, so I learned to use them properly at a young age.

    Just angle your back at some "in-between" position.
    I'll have to look up my SLERP code for this.

    heheh, chopsticks are fun...I think its funny that they put rubber bands around the chopsticks and a rolled up chopstick wrapper in between them so that clumsy people can use them. ;D

    dont smoke at the table unless ash trays are provided (........)
    This made me LAWL so much. You can smoke, but you can't "wipe" your lips with your napkin? HAHA! I'd rather wipe my lips with a napkin and be considered a slob, then get lung cancer from second-hand smoke. Is that the definition of a "formal" dinner? You might as well pull out a bong and have the President's wife get high. Doesn't make sense to me. Maybe because I can't put my head that far up my ........... It's not aimed toward you Bob, just the ignorance of your "leaders"

    Yeah, I'll be the first to admit, a lot of the stuff we have to do our first year is aimed at how well we can do what we are told as opposed to having it actually serve a purpose. Everything from how we make our beds to how we stack books on our shelves has a rule.

    There is actually a useful purpose for the formal dining thing, however, and that is jobs. It's entirely possible that a midshipmen, upon graduation, will have to attend a dinner hosted by the company he/she is trying to get a job at. Make a good impression, that'll help you get the job. Evidently this happens rather frequently. If it can help me land a job with polar tankers making $100,000 per year right out of college then I'm all for it

    Smoking can be so classy, I don't think you have any idea.

    The first hour goes to trying to pick up the same thing. I used to eat raisins with chopsticks. It was quite fun.

    Seeing as how there are like no girls that attend my school, they've essentially hired people to be our dates when we go to the President's house.
    It looks strange to me. Who will be your date?

    Just make sure you don't put your elbows on the table or scracth some annoying itch on your cheek. Decisions like that may cost you your future.
