    IMO, paper plates served inside is just lazy and wasteful, but are acceptable to me for hosting an outdoors type gathering like a bbq. Styrofoam plates should be illegal however. To each their own though.

    Nobody willingly drinks beer from a disposable plastic cup though, do they? Even cans and bottles are preferable to that, surely? :eek:

    Computer keyboards are the dinnerware of gamers/IT professionals

    I do use paper plates for pizza - I'd never wear sweatpants out in public. Ever.
    The people I wonder about are those guys you see walking into the supermarket in January - it's snowing, 6" on the ground already, 20 degrees, a miserable day all around. Yet there's always some dude wearing the same nylon shorts he wore all summer and autumn, and sneakers/no socks on his feet. I just know that those shorts haven't been laundered since the last time he visited his mom. Hey man, college was over 15 years ago...

    I learned the hard way not to wear paper plates in high school.

    yeah they are pretty uncomfortable I'd think
    but I am thinking you meant to say sweats, giving "the hard way" extra meaning

    Mostly cotton but there are 2-3 nice sets of linen for special occasions
    Got the cotton ones at a restaurant supply company and Crate & Barrel
    Those paper napkins are worthless.

    I only use them for pizza because that's how pizza is supposed to be eaten.
