No really. You don't want a bowl (dishes!) you don't want to dump them out, you don't want to crunch and crumble and dig, and make mylar noises (gauche!)
And you wish to be civilized.
Your journey starts now.
Step 1: Open the bag.
I know this is obvious obviousness, but you have acquired a bag of chips, or other mythical snacks from the grocery store vending machine or the unicorn repair shop.
NOW you would like to consume the tasty snacks, so thusly you must open the bag and free the deliciousness from its mylar prison.
The commonly chosen methodology is to pinch the seam on the back of the bag, and the frontspiece similarly and gently but firmly pull the plastic apart. This will open the bag easily and prepare you for step 2.
