Do you ever wonder why はし are called ”chopsticks” ? I mean, they don't chop; they pick up things like sushi and french fries. I they はし should be called "pick-up sticks". That reminds me of a game that I used to play when I was a child called "pick-up sticks". The goal was to pick a stick with a magnet one by one without disturbing the other sticks. It was fun.
