Canada vs USA - morfizm


Jun. 3rd, 2013 08:24 pm Canada vs USA

Do you need a few inches longer hands to reach for the toilet paper? :)

"The bathroom is called the “washroom” in Canada. Taking euphemisms to new heights.

Canadians put the toilet paper on the roll so the paper hangs closest to the wall, instead of closest to the toilet. That is to say, the wrong way. How does it feel to be so wrong, Canada?"

P.S. Btw, found some things that I am doing in a "truly Canadian way" (e.g. kettles), and also some language constructs that I am using are "Canadian". But why the hell do they put the toilet paper wrong way? :)

Actually I tried microwaving liquids, it's a terrible experience, and microwave sometimes automatically shuts down because of steam.
