Its Different here!

well the main point that was put across at MTS is things arent wrong about countries, they are just "different". Not that we are suggesting that any of the following things are wrong just that we found them to be different, anyways u know what i'm getting at, so here they are......

1> sidewalks are fair game to drive on..... as long as they are sloped and not with a curb
2>toliet paper is not just orange and pink in colour but also scented....orange being self explaintory and pink smelling like rose...oh the jokes i'm holding back!
3>yogurt comes in the following flavours..... strawberry, cherry, pineapple, kiwi and my personal favorite "corn" thats hungarian for grape and wheat
4>when saying hello you say "see ya" and saying goodbye its "hallo"..... interesting to say the least
5>goulash is a way of life

6>a polite hello or simple smile can be met with very strange looks if any at all
7>street signs are ornamental
8>underwear stores outnumber all others by a 2 to 1 ratio
9>build a fence....put a dog iniside the fenced area.....then begin building house
10>the ice cream man visits even in the winter.....ok its the frezzer man, truck and all bellowing out the nicest of melodies.... p.s. this is the dogs favorite target!

so there you go a couple difference we have noticed...but like we say they are not neccesarily wrong just different although i disagree with this point about the toliet paper.... scented toliet paper.....thats just wrong!

I read warning about that scented tp.
Such things as it causes rashes etc. Careful!

Do their Q-tips smell too? Any chance the gasoline is flavored? That would be different!

...for one I havent put a q-tip in my nose and two i have no plans in tasteing the gasoline.....and yes things have already became normal, like the strange tasteing water no longer tastes strange put just like water
