Bedside manners

Bedside manners

I've been on my fair share of road trips with Brits, often as the only woman in the group, and I always thought it was sweet how the men would go out of their way to give me my privacy, even if the only privacy they could offer was letting me have my own bed while the rest of them lumped together on whatever was left.
I never asked for this and quite frankly it confused me the first few times because this isn't something I've experienced with Danish men, but they insisted and, well, it was very sweet.

Respect your elders

Respect your elders

Sogen Kato was believed to be the oldest man in Tokyo up until 2010 when officials finally entered his apartment and realized that he had died at the age of 79 in 1978. His death had been kept a secret by his family who were collecting his pension. This lead to a huge search for all people over 100 years, and it turned out that Japan couldn't document the whereabouts of 234,354 supposed centenarians.

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.

The opera Porgy and Bess is supposed to have an all-black cast, but an Hungarian opera house got around that rule by only hiring white singers who signed a document saying they identified with black culture.

Australia has different problems than the rest of us. Sometimes they get so many centipedes on their train tracks the trains can't run. The centipedes even caused a train crash once.
