TikToker @turtleimpaler had a video go viral, where he's shown explaining the process behind him accidentally learning how to speak English. Basically, one of the biggest takeaways from this video should be that cartoons can be wildly educational. Time for all those high school language classes to step their game up.

Twitter Thread: What Every State Is Famous For, According to a Brit

It can be a real wakeup call to hear what a total stranger thinks of the place you and your family have lived their whole lives. For all you know, every person you live with, work with, know and love could be summed up in someone's brain as "the place with all the corn." Depending on where you live, your culture might measure space and time differently than someone else. Here are some non-americans' biggest culture shocks they felt when visiting.

Tumblr Thread: Cultural Cuisines Compared

Every culture's cuisine has one enduring thing in common. You must accept that you will never make it as well as your grandma did. With that out of the way, cooking becomes a game of how much you're willing to make your house smell like garlic in order to impress your uncle. Trying to compare every cultural cuisine on the same scale is like comparing apples and oranges, particularly because, well, they're literally different foods. Live in any environment long enough and it becomes clear that your family's Sunday dinner might have an absolutely shocking amount of onions compared to your neighbors next door. Not only can cultures collide over something as basic as what lemonade is, but different places even have varied understandings of how one should measure space and time. So deal with the dal, love the lime and accept the aspic. We all bring something different to the table.

We love a good old fashioned Twitter that manages to culture us a little bit on some of the strange things that occur over in a foreign land like the U.K. For instance, apparently British people call their fanciest private schools public schools, which kind of makes zero sense. But hey, to each their own. For some more worldly content check out this AskReddit thread about Americans' biggest culture shocks when visiting Europe

Seems like the jets could've been too much for Stephen Fry. You've also got to take into consideration that the lad attended a college football game in the South. The South doesn't mess around with their football. Nope, not one bit.
