Well breaking the spaghetti is just so it fits in the pot better for the few seconds it takes for the submerged part to soften up and slide into the water. It's just mild laziness I guess.

As for kids, maybe for very young kids but honestly if chinese kindergarteners can learn to eat with chopsticks a 5 year old can learn to wind spaghetti around a fork. Lets give kids some credit. We're making them soft and weak. When the ants arrive from space they're just gonna roll over.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Man, I hate spaghetti. I have to cut it up into tiny pieces (done after it's finished cooking) because I hate how messy it is. Really, it goes for any long thin pasta. Also, milk goes with everything. No such thing as a meal that milk doesn't work for.

I prefer something like penne, but I'm not gonna turn pasta down.  Though for me spaghetti has a similar connotation as like, chicken nuggets or something.  Basic, simple, was served it a lot as a kid because picky eaters aren't gonna turn it down. 
Probably not a Goat, either.

I'm with Inkling. Prefer more manageable pasta shapes, but won't complain about some spaghetti.

I think the connotation is more with "sketti" than spaghetti. Spaghetti with some lame-ass tomato sauce and maybe cheese grated on it. No real flavour or points of interest.

Spaghetti, like any pasta, is really just what you make it. One of my dinnertime favourites at the moment is spaghetti carbonara. Pretty quick and easy to make and soooooooo good.

You can just twirl the spaghetti around your fork. If it is difficult, use a spoon to help keep it all together as you twirl.

I won't tell anyone if you use a spoon. What matters is that you eat. Ratio of sauce/gravy to pasta is also important.

I will tell everyone if you use a spoon, because you are a sick and twisted creature.

KS you're high as hell, how short is your spaghetti that breaking it in half makes it unreasonably difficult to twirl it around a fork?

Your spaghetti doesn't come fresh off a spindle?

What are you, one of those barbaric Germans?

Pff, spaghetti weevils destroyed all the mature trees in the 70s and there hasn't been enough time passed for a new viable crop, you're probably plucking linguini.
