Things I would not know unless I Youtubed

Supersizers eat the 70's.. I was born in the late 70's. I know how 70's were like through my parent's pictures.

Whoa, can you imagine the whole earth's population on stilts platforms?

Do you know that Americans don't teach their 5 and 6 year olds to eat with fork and knife? That British schools do?

I learn how to use fork and knife when I was 5. I was a pro at the fork at 4. What the hell?

How do I know this? I YouTubed for Jamie Oliver and watched two epis of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and found out.

When Jamie asked the 'lunch ladies' (School cook) whether they know what are the ingredients in chicken nuggets, the first thing they said was :

'Chicken breasts are the first ingredient.'

There were sodium and MSG among other preservatives in the list, and they don't care about these things. I doubt that there are even 20% real chicken in the nuggets.

I also got to know that Americans's do not know where KFC comes from, despite the fact that it stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken.

(Sarcy thinks Americans are bizarre) ---> OH YES... she is being nice.

But I also know that somehow, people tend to stereotype, a lot. I am just thankful that I am friends with Americans who know what the hell they are doing or saying.


  1. One thing I know most Americans have no idea where Malaysia is. When we tell them where we're from, they'll probably say "Oh, you're from the other side of the world." Which is quite true.
    I got this everytime I introduced myself to an American when I was there a few years ago.
    They learn world history in school, not sure whether Geography is part of their curricular.

  2. I don't think they learn their own geography... very sad indeed.
