Ping pong show

It's like regular ping pong, but instead of paddles, they use vagenes, and instead going back and forth, they just send the balls to the audience.

I saw only one match, i wasn't able to say who won, i don't even know how they count points.

Definitely not that weird, but for some reason the first thing that came to mind: I saw in a market in Thailand, I'm guessing they're like funyuns, but why would they be wrapped in stored like this?

Thai pork cracklings. Absolutely fucking delicious. They're probably wrapped like that to keep them crispy or keep flies off or something.

>>
>>2117627
Most have become less widespread now, but a year or two back in China, tons of weird flavours of snickers started to appear. There was white chocolate, chilli pepper, mango, peach (actually pretty good), and the worst of all, sweet potato, which is also one of the most popular ice cream flavours here because Chinese people are godless savages.

That's the Carrefour in central Tbilisi, right? Funny place, it's stocked with lots of food from intended for Belgium.

Also, the toilet paper by the roll is amusing - and also excellent for hiking because it has no roll in the middle so it saves lots of space.

I live in Canada. We have ketchup-flavored chips. It's a weird local quirk, and it's almost a point of pride for many Canadians. To us, it's about as iconic as hockey, maple syrup, and Tim Hortons coffee. Like you've said, they're absolutely disgusting. If anything, I think it might be even worse.

That's awfully generous of you, actually. Ketchup-flavored chips are just absolutely revolting, so if we can have this struck off the record, that would simply be marvelous. From now on, I am calling them an American creation, no matter what the truth is.

Protip: NEVER eat livestock brain overseas. Insanely, stupidly risky. It is one of the most delicate organs that spoils the fastest, and also loaded with unique bacteria and viruses. Stay the fuck away if you value your health and your life.

One time, my hotel room had a phone in the bathroom. I thought it was a silly place to put a phone, then it rang while I was taking a shit. Now I understand completely. Saw this only once in my life.

How the fuck do you expect us to understand this?

>>2122975
In a normal hotel room, if you were busy taking a shit, you wouldn't be able to answer the phone; it would be all the way on the nightstand, usually next to the bed. If you have a phone in the bathroom, you can. Was that so hard?

you can still buy bulk, just in pre-packed 50 lb bags that hasn't had people sneeze into it.

It's funny what you see sold in bulk and what you don't in different countries. In the US flour sold in bulk isn't very unusual. Cat litter is a new one to me but in some 3rd world countries I've been to I've seen a lot more stuff sold in bulk to consumers that don't have the purchasing power to buy a lot at a time.

Some of the things I've seen sold in bulk include dog food, breakfast cereal, chicken feed and powdered laundry soap.

I don't have a pic, but in Mexico I saw a weird decoration. It was a skull covered in silver glitter that was wearing a firefighter's helmet covered in red glitter.
