    That's bad luck leaving your sticks in your food. TAKE THEM OUT BRO! ;)

    AFAIK, it's not bad luck, it's one of the Japanese mourning customs....you give the deceased a bowl of rice with chopsticks stuck in it for some period of time...or something. I've never had it explained by someone who can describe it to me with an accent I can decipher and sufficient English vocabulary....because I'm an American and don't speak anything else passably.

    Also,

    My pocket carry doesn't change much, but I got my full size ultratech back from service.

    I think I've heard the same thing before. The only actually chopstick etiquette I've been aware of was the no pointing at things or people with them, not to pass food items from chopstick to chopstick and to not cross them. I bet our good friend Nekolf could chime in on this one! :)

    Exactly. That is called "Tate bashi". It is only used at Buddhist funerals, but actually, I have never seen that before.

    That is called "Hashi watashi". It is only used at Buddhist funerals as well. After having cremated a dead person, a pair of attendant at a ceremony picks up a bone together with their chopsticks and puts it in an urn.



    There is much more chopsticks etiquette, but I don't know all. I think foreign tourist will not be warned even if they did that, but had better not do in Japan.:)

    Thanks for the info, Nekolf. I've been curious. Those phrases should help.

    Can you rub disposable chopsticks to get rid of splinters? I've heard you can and can't.
