Re: Negative picking

Part of the problem is probably the word "negative". That seems quite subjective when we're talking really about "tactical" picking. Any negativity can seemingly only be perceived by people other than the picker.

But real Indians eat with their hands, with bread, or if not bread then you most definitely need rice (which surely fits with your "carbs sap my curry hole" point). So you can totally get down without the bread or rice if you're spooning, but bringing up how Indians eat doesn't work for you.
