If you are trying to make a left turn where there is no traffic signal, bring a book to read because you may be at the intersection awhile. 4) When you're a pedestrian, walk really slow through the crosswalks. When you're driving, get really pissed at the people walking really slow through the crosswalks. 5) When it rains, people run inside, because rain is scary. 6) Appropriate clothing is a T-shirt and Shorts. Even in winter. 7) If you wear a tie, people will think you're a Mormon missionary. Even the FBI agents and insurance salesmen don't wear ties here. 8) "Sushi" means "cold raw fish to eat". 9) Instead of church, people attend Yoga, combining their spirituality with their workout, saving time. 10) Don't assume someone's gender based solely on their appearance - think of people here like a big box of chocolates - you don't know what you've got till you bite into one! — Andy Somers 2003
