Hurts Good

In the USA, saunas have hot rocks. In Japan, spas are naked baths. In Sweden, you swim in ice water before saunas. In Russia spas you hit each other with tree branches, called banya

It's called banya and it looks super painful...in a good way.

Unreal Words

In English we use words that aren't words, like mmm-hmm and a'ight. But they also do in other languages


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A'ight yo, coo'.

Not Not Negative Not

Afrikaans has a weird double negative nie rule

According to Itchy Feet fan, Afrikaans learner and co-author of this comic, Dave MacLeod, in Afrikaans any negative statement ("not" = nie) must at the end of the sentence feature yet another nie...or Afrikaans speakers will think you're not done speaking yet. Not.

Comprehension Bias

Everyone says 'I understand more than I can speak', but that's obvious. Nobody ever says 'I speak more than I understand'

You know you want to.

Beany Baby

I'm having a baby, and it's the size of a bean! Just like the Itchy Feet guy

That's right, soon we're going to be hearing the pitter-patter of itchy feet around the house! :O

We're on the twelfth week now - that ultrasound was done on the eighth week, which was two days before we left for a ten-day trip to Japan and Abu Dhabi! Naturally, I just had to make a passport for the little guy. So that's exactly what I did, out of one of my old German passports (I'm a dual citizen):


Used the early ultrasound as a passport photo:


We even got it stamped:


The Japanese one was just a tourist stamp, but the Emirates one is a real passport stamp! My wife asked the guy and he didn't understand English, so shrugged and stamped the tiny passport ^_^

How crazy flags from Friesland, Benin Empire, North Caucasian Emirate, Antarctica, Sicily and Volga German Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic most likely were conceived
