Does /ck/ have anything about their culture's food and eating norms that is somewhat particular?
I'm Guyanese, and Guyanese people rarely, if ever like to eat with forks, spoons or knives.
Now don't mistake me, contrary to a reputation we might have, we're NOT uncultured idiots. We simply prefer to use all the utensils as we prepare our food, and then eat it with our bare hands. After we're done REALLY eating the hell out of some curry goat or aloo or what have you, we'll wash our hands and mouths out, carry on our day.
Although in the company of non-Guyanese, Indian and West Indies people, I will eat with utensils for the sake of making them more comfortable around me. If I'm at an Asian's house and served noodles or rice, you can bet to hell I'm using chopsticks or a fork. If a Western man is kind enough to serve me a steak or food of his own kind, I'll be certain to use forks, knives and spoons. I just honestly and truly don't see the point of eating most food with utensils, it seems to be only western and eastern people's who have this preference for eating food with utensils. I can understand it for very hot foods but... we Guyanese just have our own way about food. We generally prepare everything to be eaten with bare hands, in fact it's rather humorous to me watching other people try to eat things our way.
What about your culture, /ck/?

guys, is coffee supposed to make you poop?
I have tim horton's coffee from the store all the time, and don't feel the need. But i bought some of the grocery-store bought tim's beans. When I make it at home, after drinking a cup, after 5 minutes I instantly need to dump, like clockwork.
is this normal? why does it only happen with home-made coffee??
