    So you are telling us we shouldnt eat COD!!!!
    What about friday nights???:eek:
    Lets face it, just about every food has some potential for making us ill.
    I say eat what you like and enjoy it, for tomorow you may be run over by a bus!

    As for what not to do in Korea. If you are a young child do NOT do anthing to your appearance that makes your gender at all unsure. Apparently, feeling between a young childs legs is a perfectly acceptable way to discover their gender!
    What is wrong with just asking them I wonder?
    The mind boggles....

    Are you suggesting that the peninsula west of Japan is a nation of child molesters? :eek: :confused: :eek:

    Nooooo. I can't say I have ever exerienced or seen such activity. However, it was on the list of cultural differences we were given when we went on the 2005 trip to Korea with KSW.
    So I thought it worth mentioning, given the question asked by this thread.
    But you have a point UK. I wonder how many innocent (in their culutre) east asians have been arrested for child molestation in the West after being introduced to someones offspring!:eek:
    PS have they moved Korea? Last time I looked it was WEST of Japan!

    Stop making fun of my dyslexia! :cry:

    It's a special form that instead of mixing up left/right, it confuses east/west. :p

    I'm so proud of you, Pugil. You figured out how to access the special characters in unicode. :happy:

    Only problem is not which arrow to use, but that a double headed arrow is thrown into the mix. (E or W ??)

    Or due to the confusion, maybe this arrow image would be better suited? ()

    And of course, we could always go in circles...
    ↶ ↪ ↺

    or get trapped in a corner...

    or get all crossed up...

    but I think you get the picture, so I'll stop now. :)

    BTW, you forgot these:
    NE ↗
    SE ↘
    SW ↙
    NW ↖

    SO UK, if you can work all that out without errors........how come you thought Korea was EAST of Japan in the first place!!!!
    Are you sure you can make it to Canada in August or should we take a detour and pick you up on the way?:evil:

    BTW...that reminds me...do we need list of what NOT to do in CANADA? Saja Nim?

    No excuse really... just too quick to post, without proofreading first. :bang:

    And shouldn't that be:
    "When in Canada, what not to do, eh?"

    And speaking of not proofreading...
    Seems our friend, Demdike, edited his post below (#49) to add "DON'T DRINK THE BEER" a couple of extra times (I'll assume by doing a copy/paste). And while doing so, he completely missed the fact that "DRINK" is missing an 'I'. :D

    From my experience, I would offer that those Canadians tend to be rather fond of their Snake Bite Medicine, so perhaps a good thing TO DO would be to grab a bottle at a duty free shop, as surefire way to smooth over any accidental 'faux pas' do nots :cool:

    Noooooo! I never figured anything out UK. As I use a Mac, I simply clicked 'Edit' and then 'Special Chartacters' — but I didn't find you there though!

    How do I tell who is french if I musn't speak to them first?
    And do French-Canadians speak "proper" French or do they speak French like the Yanks speak English? If so I have absolutely NO chance!

    You know what... there are far more types of Beer in the world than there are different types of wine... you'd think that they'd import just a few... even if they can't brew it themselves! :evil:

    Porter, bitter, ale, stout, pilsner, lager... take your pick, in Canuckistan we have it all...

    French is a patois over there... old country/farmer dialects and spoken at a different speed than in France ....maybe a fair comparison to the UK english to yankish relationship....

    Frankly speaking english here is not the problem as much as understanding what the words mean... i went to my daughters concert here in the UK the other week.. there was a choice of concession charge, adult and family... in CDA concessions means refreshments so I offered money for one adult and concessions....did I ever get a blank look!!!

    You can speak to anyone in Canada.. if they are french you have a good chance of being ignored.. which might in some peoples minds might not be such a bad thing or you could get a plate of their favourite snack..pontine(gravy and cheese curds) on chips....
