Dining Etiquette From Around The World

July 28, 2014 | 6 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

Slurp your food.

In Japan, most commonly when eating noodles and soups, slurping shows your appreciation of the food to the chef. The louder the better! You may also drink directly from the soup bowl — spoons are uncommon. Furthermore, never cross your chopsticks, lick your chopsticks, or stick your chopsticks vertically into a bowl of rice. It’s considered very rude in Japan and many other Asian countries, including China.

 

Eat only with your right hand.

In India, the Middle East, and some parts of Africa, it is considered unclean to eat with your left hand.

Inside The World Of Japanese Love Hotels

July 22, 2014 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Interesting |

japanese love hotels

From rooms kitted out like medical clinics where couples can play "doctors and nurses" to grottos where it is permanently Christmas, Japan’s "Love Hotels" cater to almost every taste, offering a few hours of reasonably-priced privacy in a crowded country. Given that approximately 40,000 of them exist throughout the country, the chances of you coming across a Love Hotel are pretty high should you ever visit Japan on your travels. Their reason for being is simple: Love Hotels offer Japanese couples, particularly those who live at home with family and therefore lack privacy, a discreet place to stay when feeling amorous; be it for an hour or a night. Booking a stay almost-anonymously is possible due to a lack of public-facing staff; all bookings being made by way of automated reception desks. Of course, many of these hotels, in an effort to both stand out from the crowd and cater for those couples with a particular kink, are themed. Here are some of the most intriguing.

Russian Prison Tattoos And Their Meaning

July 21, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

This convicts apparently random tattoos denote his rank within the criminal world. They embody a thief’s complete ‘service record’, his entire biography, detailing all of his achievements and failures, his promotions and demotions, his ‘secondments’ to jail and his ‘transfers’ to different types of ‘work’. A thief’s tattoos are his ‘passport’, ‘case file’, ‘awards record’, ‘diplomas’ and ‘epitaphs’. In this world a man with no tattoos has no social status whatsoever. Across the chest ‘Death is not vengeance / the dead don’t suffer’. On the arms ‘I live in sin / I die laughing’.

The dagger through the neck shows that the prisoner committed murder while in prison, and that he is available to ‘hire’ for further murders. The bells on the feet indicate that he served his time in full (‘to the bell’), the manacles on the ankles mean that the sentences were over five years. ‘Ring’ tattoos on the fingers show the status of the criminal when the rest of his body is covered. The ‘thieves’ stars’ on the knees carry the symbolic meaning ‘I will not kneel before the police’.

How To Be As Big And Badass As The Rock

July 18, 2014 | 10 Comments » | Topics: Awesomeness, Interesting |

the rock training regime

The Rock says he had one look in mind when preparing for his role in Hercules “big and mean”. And it required a diet of herculean proportions to do it. The actor undertook an eating regime which he calls the “12 Labours” diet in reference to the 12 difficult feats the mythical son of Zeus had to undertake. Johnson uploaded a picture of his diet on Instagram today which detailed each of his seven daily meals.

“Generally, I eat six or seven times a day,” he told bodybuilding.com. “It’s about getting enough protein to aid lean muscle growth, and everything is very precisely measured depending on what targets I’m looking to hit for that day. Lots of protein, good carbs, and veggies. Nutrition is so important, it can’t be stressed enough.

“For Hercules, it was a 22-week diet, full on. I’d eat a bunch of egg whites, filet mignon, chicken, fish, oatmeal, broccoli, asparagus, a baked potato, cream of rice, salad and complex carbs. All of this measured and weighed.”

Our training is key, but diet is crucial. Here’s my diet I did every day for 6 months while shooting #HERCULESMovie A ton of calories, cause I had to support my 2xs a day training and 12hr shooting days. Plus I only had one crack at making HERCULES EPIC so I committed. Adjust the diet to your personal goals and have fun. Nemean Lion blood is optional. #TeamHercules #ItAllStartsInTheKitchen #FOCUS
