what i mean is: do you twirl your pasta clockwise or counterclockwise? do you use a spoon to assist your twirling? maybe you are one of those people who just scoops it up recklessly and shovels it into their mouths?

eating some pesto spaghetti right now with the counterclockwise method. apparently, twirling your pasta counterclockwise is unproper etiquette. i've been doin it all my life, so any other way feels unnatural. and i don't use a spoon when i'm eating long pasta; i jus twirl against the plate.

I use a fork, I twist the fork and then put it in my mouth,chew and swallow. Sometimes I just scoop it up.. depends. I try not to have the sauce splash everywhere but it's impossible with spaghetti.

I usually cut it up. I like to scoop it onto garlic bread, and thats more difficult if the noodles are long.

I don't know how people have the patience to twirl it at full length.

I have to cut it up a few times. I'm left-handed so it feels a little more natural to twirl it counterclockwise

Clockwise, fork, no spoon or cutting assistance. If you cut the noodles might as well just pick a shorter pasta like penne or rotini.

Cutting spaghetti seems like something honey boo boo's mom would do. Apparently she also makes 'sauce' from cooking margarine and ketchup which sounds about right. Multiple counts of blasphemy.

I eat my spaghetti from a bowl and twirl clockwise just as I have done since I started eating with utensils.

If there's nobody around I just shove it in my mouth. If there are people around I try to swirl it.

I guess I just twirl it with a fork clockwise until I get a manageable fork full. Haven't really though about it like that.

 It allows for better control of the twirling motion, on a surface that can be lifted off the plate.

It's not a favorite of mine, but I'll eat. If I'm going to eat pasta, however, I prefer something that's less hassle than spaghetti.

A hassle to make or to eat? Because iif spaghetti is too much of a hassle to make for you, I suggest you just keep eating that microwave food.

Twirl it with a fork.  Once in a while I'll use a spoon as well.  Pro Tip:  Try mixing in a tablespoon or two of ricotta with your spaghetti, changes the flavor profile completely, and is so good (Disclaimer: depending on the sauce you use, your deliciousness mileage may vary)

Eat. Notice in my post I said "if I'm going to eat pasta" not "if I'm going to make pasta". Reading in context helps.

Combination of swirling and shoveling. I take it with a generous amount of tomato sauce and parmesan cheese as well.

Technically it was the sauce not the skets, but sauce splashes didn't sound as catchy to me
