Which is the worst opening for white?
I'd argue that 1. f3 is the worst. You don't develop a piece, you prevent your kingside knight from reaching it's best square, and you weaken your kingside. The three you listed are wasteful moves to be sure, but 1. f3 wastes a tempo with flare!
f3 or f4, because when I play these I usually lose
I agree with Probaddie 1.f3 is the worst and h3 a close second since it weakens your kingside pawn structure.
As for Two_Dogs, I use 1.f4 and win regularly but there are a lot of traps to avoid.
