Pigeons of the world

Pigeons of the world

Based on a personal experience. An American friend was very impressed by the pigeons she saw on our trip. When we asked why she pointed at a very dirty and scruffy looking pigeon with one foot and said “That’s what they look like in American cities”

Shoes on shoes off

Shoes on shoes off

We don't usually think of Scandinavia as "shoes off" countries, but then I talked to some Americans who couldn't understand why their Scandinavian friends were always hovering around in the entrance if they only visited to pick something up real quick. The mystery was solved when they explained that it's impolite to walk around people's houses with shoes on in Scandinavia. You either take them off or at least ask if you should. Even if the homeowner don't expect you to take your shoes off they might still get offended if you don't ask, so the rules are a bit more complicated than in Japan.

Everybody everywhere understands why some Americans want to arm teachers NOW because schools shootings are a systemic problem that will take YEARS to fix, but more deadly weapons in schools probably isn't a good idea.

The big question

When I lived in England I thought the washing machine was in the kitchen because we had a tiny shitty house, but turned out that's very normal in England. Where do you keep your washing machine?

Most places in the US people buy a spot for their family member that is supposed to be everlasting.

In Europe however it's common practice to reuse graves. People buy a spot for however long it's expected for a body/urn to decompose. After that they can choose to re-buy the spot for another number of years if they so wish. If they don't want to, another person will be buried there.
