I lose sleep thinking about how ****** our society and general way of life is...almost all of our fuel and good part of our materials science is based on pumping ancient hydrocarbons out of subterranean reserves that will run out and will not be refilled, and nobody can be bothered to give anything even closely resembling a ****

We whine about how our gas is a few cents too expensive and about how the iPhone case we got as a gift is cerulean instead of azure, when here we are set up for a civilization-scale collapse within our children's lifetimes

And that's not even bringing to mind overpopulation, our inability to colonize space, mass pollution, resource scarcity...

TL;DR that picture is basically my life

I'm pretty sure plastic (or at least the ingredients to make it) is a byproduct of refining crude oil. So yes it would be really stupid IF we didn't already have loads of it just laying around.

Not, it certainly is not 						*******					 "so true."   
   
Includes entire process of producing plastic spoon because it helps his argument.   
Excludes entire process of producing metal spoon because it would hurt his argument.

It is even more interesting that there isn't one person on this earth who could make that spoon from start to finish

Nobody pays you to go for a ******* **** but I bet you still do it

Well, by OP's logic, the plastic spoon is the least effort

You know, you still have to mine the minerals required to make the spoon, ship it to a refinery to have it refined then forged into stainless steel, then have that shipped off to a factory (if the factory owner also owns the mining company and forge or at least has immediate access to it) where it then gets re-forged into utensils and then shipped off to a store, where it then gets purchased.

But then there's also the process of having water being pulled from the reserves, which had to be filtered and processed (implying your area gives enough **** to do that right).

Annnd then you have to get the dish washing liquid, which, like most detergents is made through a compound of sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonat, which then has to be put into a plastic bottle (we already know half of that jargon, don't we, OP?), shipped to a store, sold, and then brought home on top of the other goods, often on separate occasions.

Solid logic, OP.

do you know how many of those are?

they don't make'em one at a time, itss more like a billion at a time..

just like when you buy it you don't buy just one.

Its all about convenience. Plastic spoons are easily mass produced and can be shipped in great numbers due to how light they are. People use plastic spoons when they do not have metal spoons easily available, like a picnic. Nobody wants to carry around fifty metal spoons for people to eat with, then collect them all up once everybody is done and carry the messy pile of food chunks and spoons back home to wash them all off   
   
tl;dr shut the 						****					 up

Meh. This is a huge oversimplication (obviously)

You could always just flip it the other way and to show how amazing it is that the global markets allow such complicated processes to be performed so easily.

1st, the spoon showed there is mainly used for camping. Its lighter than a metal utensil and wont bend as easily.

2nd, restaurants use plastic utensils because it's cheaper if their stolen like what clavatninenine does.

Well, it's not OP's logic since this argument is many years old. But he does agree with it
