What is the point of tapping your knife? Is it just to look epic while someone is filming you?
>>16161627>Is it just to look epic while someone is filming you?yes
>>16161627I've heard that people who cut meat in front of the customers do it as a way to get people to watch the knife. I doubt there's any real practical purpose to it.
>>16161627its for 'spatial calibration' or something. its like a reset. someone explained it properly on here before, but I did the same kind of thing working cash at mcdonalds. there was a spot on the screen that everyone would tap inbetween punching in different menu items.
>>16161668Like the 'N' key on a keyboard?
>>16161693not sure what youre referring to, what do you use the 'N' key for?
>>16161693The 'n' key on my keyboard is semi broken, I have to hit it extra hard, probably from over use lmao.
>>16161627I do it for like, a rhythm, timing thing. Chef always bitches that I'm wearing out my knife, I always tell him that it's my fucking knife I fucking bought with my fucking money and he can go fuck himself. I don't know what it is about cooking that turns people into raging autists.
>>16161703I see posts of just>Nall the time. It must be that spatial calibration thing anon was mentioning.
>>16161627>taps knife>micr-edge folds over>need to sharpen knife again
>>16161716as a cook its all about rhythm. like theres certain things i do that dont make practical sense but help set my rhythm. i bob when im doing my prep to help keep a consistent pace and then when im working service on the line its literally dancing. those tong clicks, the quick little pan flip when you pull it onto a burner, those foot spin moves, those dramatic seasoning drags are all apart of the dance its keeping my rhythm.
I usually do it to reaffirm my grip
>>16161740Actually, they just have a learning disability and forgot how to spell "no"
>>16162784>Cunt dances while cookingDo you suck cock? No shame if you do, I just want to know where I can force another man to top me
>>16162836no i meant to type N I G G E R
>>16162846im not literally dancing its a dance. wheres the depth on the spectrum where ur ability to understand abstractions is removed
>>16162858Yeah I havent been banned or range banned for saying nigger outside /b/ for a long, long time. Jannies have thrown in the towel for good.
>>16164322>Yeah I havent been banned or range banned for saying nigger outside /b/ for a long, long timethat's the way it's supposed to be anyway
>>16162846It's not dancingx it's more like tiny little movements or gestures to get yourself ready. Like folks who clap a few times in the middle of playing a sports game, or the leg or foot taps to center oneself. Small little tricks that probably don't matter, but we do them anyway because it's harmless.
I do it to warn knife-kun its time to cut so get ready
>>16161740they're just racist faggot trying to get people to follow along and write the word nigger. Stop trying to pretend it isn't.
>>16164322I have, a few weeks ago.
>>16161627to turn the knife's safety off
To reaffirm your grip and focus on the next cut. It's the truth.
>>16161716>t.unemployed raging autist
>>16165451Not unemployed, can you even read? Can you even dress yourself, you drooling retard?
I don't understand. What do you mean "tapping" the knife?
