Anyone who has traveled internationally has experienced first-hand how different certain things can be done in other countries.
From government-issued "baby boxes" in Scotland to very specific bathroom practices in Japan, there are so many things that are wildly different in different countries.
The Dangerously Cold Temperatures In Antarctica
You may have heard how cold it is in Antarctica but it's hard to truly imagine unless you have experienced it.

The "Cool Style!" Of Peeing In Japan
In Japan, it's socially acceptable and even common for men to sit down to pee in an effort to maintain peak sanitary conditions in public bathrooms.

Japan Takes Using The Bathroom Very Seriously
Japan is not messing around when it comes to sanitary bathrooms. It's one way that their public spaces constantly excel.
Signs like this one reminding bathroom-goers to "urinate with precision and elegance" are common.
Some English Translations Are Quite Literal
However, the Japanese-to-English translation system is definitely not always foolproof.
Sometimes, phrases get lost in translation, and businesses like this grocery store end up with a sign that says "Please do not finger the peaches." To be fair, it's a good rule.
Scotland's Government Provides Newborns With A Baby Box
The Scottish government provides each family with a newborn a "baby box" that is filled with essential products to help give a newborn the best start possible.

On the other hand, wandering livestock taking over the winding roads is a very real problem and these sheep appear to have no intention of moving any time soon.
The Most Popular Brand Of Washerfluid In Finland
Most general stores and gas stations in Finland carry a brand of washer fluid called "Superpiss."
If someone's urine was really that color, there would be something "super" concerning going on with them.
A Bathroom Designed For Tall People In The Netherlands
The caption on this photo says "The struggle of being a Southeast Asian in the Netherlands" and shows a tiny hand reaching up to flash a peace sign in the bathroom mirror.
The struggle they are referring to is the fact that the average height for men in the Netherlands is 6ft, and the buildings are all designed for tall people.
A Stairwell Designed For Shorter People In China
The opposite is also true when people from the Netherlands travel to places that have a much lower average height.
This picture shows a Dutch teenager navigating a normal stairwell in China with considerably low clearance.

English Orange Juice Labels
England has eliminated any confusion over the word "pulp" and rebranded their orange juice to say "Smooth (Orange with No Bits)" or "Original (Orange with Juicy Bits)."
