    In Canada it is taboo to discuss politics, religion or generally express an opposing opinion. It is considered insulting to have an opinion outside of specific settings in other words: don't talk about religion, politics or anything else controversial in "polite" company. Oh, and make sure to apologize for your opinions too! Sorry, but this is how freedom of speech and critical thinking are stifled. Pretty odd, eh?

    Honestly the reason we Europeans and Americans don’t eat dog while those in Asia do, and the reason we find it so wrong, is because we evolved with the dog, we breed the wolf into today’s dog and so our society and ancestors had dogs as part of the family and as partners for surviving with, but in Asia that’s not true and so it’s like cows are to most of us in America, just cattle, maybe cattle that you like.

    I am Filipino and I must admit that majority of Filipinos are ignorant as hell. Look at the way you people drive and you ignorance of the law, smart shaming fools, those who cry out "fake news!" and crab mentality stricken countrymen. Why do you think we have so much OFWs? Filipinos don't even know how to provide jobs for themselves and opt to leave our country for better opportunities. Poor, poor Filipinos, I am ashamed my countrymen cannot see the truth, therefor you shall never be free.

    In China,you are only allowed to make that slurp sound when eating noodles,other than that,if you make any sound when eating,some Chinese people might mock you as a pig,but seems like many young people simply don't give a damn anymore,they make horrible sounds even when eating in the public,back in the old days in China,you can't make any sound during eating,no talking,no slurp,no nothing,even accidentally hit your bowl or plate with your chopsticks or spoon is considered as an act of disrespectful.

    Mellinnia ago the primates on the Eurasian steppes that became the Indo-Europeans preyed on the herds of wild horses much like the North Americans preyed on buffalo. Initially some horses were kept in captivity for sacrifice to the creator goddess. From this beginning, domesticating horses for food then inventing riding and dray horses allowed the spread of Indo-European civilization. Horse is therefore the natural food for Europeans, the meat makes especially tasty sausage. Wild cattle cannot live on the open steppes. Unlike horse they do not know to dig through snow for nourishment.

    I cannot speak for the other Asian countries, however, I would like to clear up the fact that South Korea does not eat household dogs like the video portrayed. Yes, we have dog soup but the dogs are closer to wolves than any dog that people own as pets. Infographics, do more research before doing this kind of video please.

    In Sweden at the grocery store not putting the stick at the cash register that separates your groceries from the groceries of the person behind you is seen as a taboo. You just have to do it. In addition, writing with any form of ink pen (fountain pen, rollerball, ball point etc) is seen as very odd, at least for grades 1-9, and people will think you're a besserwisser. It's better to do like everyone else: to write you tests and exams using pencils.

    We have this new thing in our country where the most inept, untruthful, uneducated, impolite, hateful man is found, spray painted orange, is given an absurd hairpiece made of camel ass-crack hair and is made to use social media, specifically Twitter, in the same fashion, frequency and fervor as a 14 year old girl with epilepsy & Down syndrome. This thing is sent forward into the United States to assemble certain demographic groups. This creature was named Darth Cheetoh in certain circles. So, this lab created monstrosity started attracting butt hurt bitches. Men and women who felt as if there very existence was threatened by anyone of color, anyone with an education, anyone with compassion for their fellow man, anyone who needed some help (the elderly, the sick, Puerto Rican’s, etc) Yea, so that’s the new taboo in the US. Please send aide or an assassin immediately.

    Yes to the Chinese the sound emitting from your mouth is a sign of how much you appreciate the food but this only happens in the ancient times when there's still emperors and kingdoms are in use, nowadays people who emit sounds from your mouth are showing bad etiquettes, at least, in my perspective. And eating dog meat in China is only in Guilin city and other hometowns, they eat dog meat because they believe that you can live longer or expand your lifespan, other Chinese who doesn't live in Guilin doesn't eat dog meats especially in financial cities like Hong Kong and Shanghai.
