    In Spain we eat rabbit and no one has a problem with it (except vegetarians and vegans), even people who keep rabbits as pets usually eat rabbit themselves. We also eat horse meat. When I was living in the UK people found it disgusting. Same with seafood.

    3:49 is actually wrong. Red in Asia is thought to be sacred color and only king and his family could write their name with red and wear red cloth. This means if someone else uses red ink to write their name, they are planning treason. Usually ended up dead. Thats why red became the death color when writing names.

    In the phillipines we cant point with our index fingers because we might get "usog" or "manuno" because there is a creature named "dwende" roaming around the phillipines and they are frendly but when you disturb them your in for a treat, cause you will get punished! And pointing at them seems to make them angy thats why we point with our lips..... and yes i live in the phillipines..

    Eating everything on the plate is considered polite in India, dude. People who eat up their food are served more because that’s really polite as well. Indians treat their guests really well.

    Children in Madagascar aren't allowed to call their fathers by their name is not a taboo lol. I mean in Asia, if you do that you'll be seen as rude and extremely disrespectful. I'm not sure if everyone else does it but I've seen films and read books where children call their parents by their names and were allowed by society to do so.

    Isn't it that in China, if you clean your plate but don't want more, you set your chopsticks in a certain way as a signal?
    similar to the farting one, if you burp in certain cultures at a meal, they consider it a compliment. Figured that one by accident when I had one of those sudden burps that you can't stop... I was so embarrassed.. hostess told my classmate that it's a compliment, and he passed that to me (unlike me, he was fluent in Spanish. I think he said something to her first about what just happened and she laughed before saying it was fine).

    Even dating someone is considered taboo by many (old) Indians. There are even reports of murdering their own children for dating in some rural areas . In some cases they simply seperate them from the family. The Indian parents mostly prefer "arranged marriage"

    In a lot of asian countries it’s normal to marry your cousin. So please don’t be disrespectful and act like youre superior. Also Eating dog is usually for lower class and people living in poverty. You eat cow what’s the difference?? It’s cruel but it’s not difference

    Dear Dotards, please ensure that you complete all aspects of your 'research' before publishing videos which comment upon other countries 'Taboos'. Your story line for the reason as to why two fingers with the palm facing one is correct, however we don't use 'gun' fingers as you've shown. Please correct your infographic to a hand with two fingers in a v (palm facing you) with thumb and other fingers put away. Thanks, 10 Downing Street.

      Ok, i just searched on the Internet and found out on the countryside some very strange farmers eat some dogs. But less than 100 People in Switzerland ever ate a Dog. Some very strange do it, but its definitifely a taboo.
