I'm not sure about 'Rice-grips'.  I use tweezers myself.
Chop sticks?

Those are for eating beer nuts, and catching flies.
I only do what the voices in my wife's head tell her to tell me to do.

I have never understood why it is we do not see more Hecho de mexico products. It seems to me it would kill two birds with one stone. Build Mexico's economy and cutting down on transportation costs. I just do not see the Chinese being smarter than Mexicans.

A factory job at 11.00/ hr is not a living wage.

I don't know.  Our 2010 Ford Fusion was 'hecho en Mexico' and it's been a great car.  They buy my corn, why shouldn't I buy their cars? :shrug:

Good Lord, I just helped derail my own thread! :doh: :shrug: :rofl:

...
"Modern man" showed up in China about 125,000 years ago. How long has Mexico been around?  I don't know about smarter, but they sure had the jump start on culture and manufacturing. ;)

The proof is in the results eh?  Compare Shang hai, China's largest city to mexicos largest city. Or the US for that matter. The Chinese may be a little too smart for all our own good.
...don't go thinking you know me.
