  12. 12. you get off the plane in Tibet, expecting a nice relaxing vacation, and a Tibetan native makes this face at you. What the heck? You’re being Punk’d. You got in the middle of a spitting fight. You are being greeted. You’ve met the village idiot.In some parts of Tibet, sticking your tongue out is a friendly greeting! I think I like TibetYou are in Kenya, and an old woman spits on the top of your head. What’s goingon?She just saved your life! There was a malaria mosquito on your head and she drowned it.She was giving you a blessing.The spit is part of the curse she just placed on you.It is part of a marriage ceremony.In the Maasai tribe of Kenya, spitting on the head is a form of blessing (this is an old custom that is fading away). What is still common though, is the older person of two meeting spitting on their hand before shaking hands -thereby transferringthe goodness of their spirit in saliva as a blessing to the other. Eew.
  13. 13. Take the quiz to find out how much you know about body language, gestures and foreign customs. What does this symbol mean? all right zero money unmentionable orifice This is a trick question, as this symbol means all of these things. In the U.S. (and other places), it means “all right,” in Japan it means “money,” in France it means “zero,” and in Brazil it means the “unmentionable orifice”, literally. Ok, how about this symbol? Does it mean: “I love you” in sign language, silly. “Goat” in sign language. The sign of the devil, man, aren’t we at a Black Sabbath concert? A sign to ward off evil spirits. This is a trick question. The symbol, called the corna, is both a heavy metal symbol and a way to ward off bad luck.Ronnie James Dio is credited as making this symbol popular among heavy metal fans. Growing up in an Italian family, he saw his gramma making this symbol to ward off the evil eye. When Dio replaced Ozzy Osbourne, (who used the peacesymbol in concert) in Black Sabbath, he wanted his own symbol, so he started using the corna. This symbol also means “bullsh*t” in American Sign Language!
  14. 14. You are eating a meal in the Middle East, and your host asks how you like your food. Your mouth is full, so you give him a “thumbs up.” He stalks away from the table. What happened? You didn’t answer fast enough. He’s going to get you more food. You did the equivalent of «flipping him the bird», meaning you want to have sex with him/her. His mother was calling. Although “thumbs up” symbol means “ok,” or “good,” in the U.S. in parts of the Middle East, it means you want to have sexual relations with the person you’re giving the thumbs up to. I guess someone had better tell all the soldiers giving the thumbs up all over Iraq, huh?You flag down a cab in Australia, and hop in the back. You try to make pleasantchat with the driver, but he seems angry. What’s going on?Don’t take it personally, cabbies are known to be gruff in Australia.He’s not really a cabbie, you’ve just been picked up by a serial killer posing as a cabbie.Run!You insulted him by getting in the back.You’re not supposed to talk to the cabbies In the United States, people hop in the back of the cab. But Australians pride themselves on everyone being equals, so you’ve just insulted the cabbie by hopping in the back instead of getting in the front with him!

This man is exposing his foot to those around him, and is pointing his foot at the person to his right.You are eating dinner in Pakistan, and use your left hand to reach for another piece of bread.Your host looks offended! What have you done wrong?You’ve served yourself, you should always wait and be asked if you want more.You wanted seconds, you greedy pig!You used your left hand.You are wearing nail polish which offends them. It’s not that you went to get more food, but that you used your left hand. In many middle-eastern countries, the left hand is seen as “unclean” as it is used to wash your private areas (instead of toilet paper). As you might guess, “lefties” have a hard time over there.
