    The practice of wives addressing their husbands by pronouns instead of their given names is now (usually) considered romantic much like the western counterparts being "dear" and "honey" and now I have developed a fetish for my future wife to address me that way because of all the romantic sappy media I consume.

    Just watched this vid for a class i am taking, glad to know most of the information is inaccurate. So what can I take away from this, other than every culture has different taboos? Oh yea, what's up with the display of "thugs" shown in regards to speaking ill of one's parents. If most cultures accept this, why not display different races? Just my thoughts...

    the thing about chinese people putting food on your plate because they think you are a glutton is completely wrong. in western countries if you give someone a present they will accept it with a thank you but in china you have to pretty much force them to take it. and that sort of carries over to inviting someone over to eat. in china a lot of people will eat the bare minimum to save more food for you so in order to prevent that you have to put the food onto their plates and its considered good hospitality

  • S

    Incorrect. It is not the Chinese that slurps to show how much they love the food. It is the Japanese. And in Asia, like Thailand, it is polite to clean the plate because it shows that you are not wasteful. This notion that Americans must clean the plate is completely made up and taken from Asian culture.

    1:05 For most people tabu simply means something is not recomended to do in society, mostly acceptable in private life. Having sex with your daughter is both f..ked up in society as it is in private life; so no matter what tribe innitialy put the definition, by saying taboo , you guys shoul exemplify things that are taboo by the actual common meaning

    Here's a taboo for you:
    Most westerners bringing their shoes inside the house.
    If you do that in Asia, you'll be frowned upon. Even worst, if you do it in a Filipino household, they will smack you with a giant wooden spoon hanging from their wall. Lol
    No seriously, don't walk around in my house with the same shoes you used outside. No, not even if you wiped it off the welcome mat before stepping in.

    In Saudi Arabia, it’s rude and non respectful to give someone anything by your left hand and this may get you into troubles. Moreover, you cannot set in a place higher than the place that one of your parents setting at that consider as a sign of non respect. In addition, when you meet your friends or any group of people you have to start shaking hand from the right hand side. And don’t you ever !! Raise your feet into someone or even give him your back .
