I thought of this topic after stuff I saw in Toronto a week ago.

WE had a cold snap and it had snowed close to the end of April.  A lot of guys were outside wearing winter coats and shorts.  I'm pretty sure any other country in the world the men would cover up their legs before putting on a parka.

Please, if people reply could we NOT have a race for the bottom.

ie.  Another wierd thing about Canada is that we buy milk in bags.

Wait, is that strange? Here's the same.

- Anyway, when you buy something in Colombia one usually starts with "Regálame" (Trans. as "give me for free") however we're actually paying for it. Or at the very least, most of the time.
- On the coast side fucking donkeys is a common thing.

Well, one non-political thing I've noticed with China; there is a uniforn written language that represents several different spoken languages that can't understand one another.

Are you asking that every response have an attached photo?  I have spent a half-hour trying to deliver anything related to the U.S. -- pic or no pic -- and I am shooting blanks.  What a pity the donkey pics would be against the site Rules.   Crazy?

This is a more difficult topic than it first appears.   Blinking

I didn't think it would be that difficult.

I used to live in Germany - their highways don't have speed limits.
People in the USA eat hamburgers made of donuts.
Japan has penis parades.
Spain has a festival where you can run with bulls.

Fine.  If I can stretch the topic parameters just a bit, I spent a sabbatical in England, and they have Swan Uppers, who I have seen at work and are said to be unique to the country.

With some help from Google, I learned that Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, and Oxfordshire still have this swan upping tradition, although who knows how much longer it will continue to exist.  Simply put, these people count the number of local swans. They report that number, and whether any of the swans have injuries.

That sounds like trainspotting.  Is there a requirement to dress like Gilligan?

How about the U.S. as the only country with an annual horse race where the women spectators traditionally prance around in all manner of eccentric hats while swigging vile mint juleps?

That was the Kentucky Derby, held today!

That would be too much, indeed for the bestiality. But I was asking for that written language vs the regional dialects. How much different can they be?

I remember it being talked here about last year.

But back on topic, in Colombia we put cheese into hot agua de panela (Unrefined sugar drink) just like oreos in milk.
