In Tokyo I get a variation on this, the Maaaaaaaaaaddd people who come up and start yelling "hellooooo helllloooo do you like rock and roll are you American helllloooo hellllooooo".

Pretty much self explanatory, but occasionally I will walk into a subway car and be overcome with wave upon wave of a rotten garlic odor emanating from every pore of some dude like radiation from a fuel rod. Stale piss smell I can handle... even shit to an extent. But that mofoing garlic smell is the absolute worst.

Is he related to the Brazilian dude who bathed in cheap cologne? He tends to be common in Western Japan.

They're called Americans. If not speaking English probably Germans. To my lovely American friends, why do you have to yell at the person standing right next to you?

Take your trousers off before you get in the taxi, problem solved.

This chinese wikipedia article is much more informative than the english one

The english one is completely lacking the deep throat photo example.

I have a funny story that happened on Friday. I got onto the train with my girlfriend and she is the layer queen. Doesn't really have a coat, just layers stuff together. Now my girlfriend is thin, but her weird drapey layers made it look like she was hiding a big belly. Anyway, we get on the train and a guy immediately jumps up and offers her his seat. She smiles and says she is ok and looks at me and says that it was the second time today. I looked at the guy and I said, thanks, but shes not pregnant she's just fat. Girls looked horrified and guys got a good laugh. The poor nice-guy offender looked incredibly emabrassed.
