    I always eat with my fork facing upwards, but I see some hoity-toity people use a fork facing down, and I think that's plumb stupid, myself. I would like to see them try to use a spoon that way. :c

    Fork down is primarily for ex-convicts.

    If the fork is facing up the tines just dig into your palm and it's harder to scoop up food with the flat end.

    i do it the old fashioned and apparently stupid way.

    fork in left pointed up or down, knife in right.
    cut
    change hands
    eat
    change hands
    cut
    change hands

    i need to try the saner way but i keep forgetting.

    Do you use a knife to scoop peas onto your fork?

    That's what the tortillas are for dummy
