Let me just add a fact...

The reason why Chopsticks were made was because way back, Chinese disliked knives. China had a very bad beginning; It being colonized by the British(if I remember correctly..), Confucius equated knives with acts of aggression, which went against his non-violent teachings. Some experts credit his influence with the widespread adoption of chopsticks throughout China; scholarship had triumphed over the warrior lifestyle.

I guess it is only China, Japan, Korea, and some parts of Thailand/India(in Asia) who use chopsticks. Having known their geographical location, we can kind of conclude that Japan, Korea, Thailand, India and the other parts of Eastern Asia and Southern Asia were influenced by Chinese culture. Thus, creating a reason as to why only few Asians use chopsticks. =)

Hope my explanation made sense, lmao.

I can use chopsticks but it's like so hard to freaking eat with them.
Posted 12/11/11
No, some use forks and spoons just like us. Some also use their hands, some use swords, some use the bones of rebels. Everyone is different even in Asia surprise surprise.

No it`s something you need practice for. My little sister learned how to use the chopsticks when she was 6 but she practiced.
