Random advice from traylordean

When walking through a church and being followed by a nun in Russia do not say "blah blah blah blah!" Apparently it sounds a lot like "Fuck fuck fuck fuck" in Russian and cause the nun great distress as she calls you a devil child.

If you are wearing shorts, you don't have to worry - they'll kick you out of the church anyway :-P

If it is summer, everyone.

Continental climate - hot winters, cold summers.

Kind of a more extreme Ohio - yuk!

Year's ago in college an English prof told the story of an American couple visiting him in London. They went to a fancy restaurant.

The waiter offers the large-ish lady a seat.

She says "I'm not sure my big ol' fanny will fit in that chair!"

The waiter turns beet red.

In England, "fanny" is slang for "pussy".

In Polish, jeb is a really rude word. Watching newsreaders talking about the governor of Florida is always fun.
