    Indeed, us northerners are savages that only eat with our hands. What cutlery?
    Can confirm. Cutlery is only used by posh Southerners. Us Northerners spend our money on important things - alcohol and more alcohol.

    If we both get an offer, I'll take you to Costa and show you the perfect hot chocolate technique 😊

    Yeah, my dissertation is obviously going to be about the history of hot chocolate 😅
    Sounds like a plan - can't wait!

    You know the funny thing about humans is that we understand how blackholes work, even though we've never even seen one, and about things so small that we can't even comprehend eg electrons but we still don't completely understand the coil pattern formed when you pour honey (or any viscous liquid) into a container

    Nah that observation is probably just based on the areas of England you visited. Up north there's plenty of people who eat with their hands.
    (Original post by Rachel58)
    Depends where you are. At Maccys, everyone eats with their hands but at Gordon Ramsey's restaurants, you'd eat with cutlery.
    I don't think it's to do with the type of restaurant as everyone I ate with ate with forks and knives not using hands at all, even in the small fish and chips shops (they're not quite as fancy as a Gordon Ramsay restaurant :laugh: )

    Yeah maybe it was probably because of the area but even so it's interesting to me

    Throughout my time at university, no matter which one I go to, I'm going to find the best hot chocolate in the city through rigorous testing - but nothing will live up to the banter I have with my local Costa employees 😭😭😭

    That's so weird???? 🤔🤔🤔

    Or watch videos on YouTube about "roadmen". I just recently found out about the "roadman" phenomena and I must say... it is the absolute most annoying thing ever to have to listen to someone who talks "road" :rofl:
    Any comments from you British folk on this matter? 😂

    Just read the d-day posts from last year...

    HAHHAAHAHAHHA why am I still following this thread when 80% of interviewees get rejected?!? As if I would even be in the top 20% apparently black-British rarely get in...

    What are the chances of me being in the 1% of the top 20%? HAHAHA

    Bye bye genius' and future Cambridge students 👋🏾
    Saying "1% of the top 20%" makes it seem a lot worse than it actually is, until you realise that black candidates only make up 2.4% of applicants (this is an issue in itself but not the issue at hand here). Black candidates do have a lower success rate but the disparity isn't as bad as you make out

    Besides, your application isn't just random chance, all that matters is how good you are compared to others.
