Thirteen Reasons Why People Are Obsessed With Australians And Their Culture

I don't know about you, but I don't really know anybody who doesn't like Australia (except for maybe Kiwis from New Zealand). Yes, this is 100% a generalization, but the people seem so unproblematic compared to Americans. What's not to like about Australian culture either? You may find that many people have very strong opinions on Vegemite, but personally, it doesn't get in the way of my appreciation for the land down under. So, Australia, keep doing what you're doing, Americans seem to be loving each and every bit of it. 

And if you don't give a sh*t about how American's feel about you that's cool too, you can just laugh at these Tweets.

People Disclose Their Not So Traditional Cultural Traditions

Every culture is rich with unique traditions. It is amazing to be able to hear how somebody else was brought up completely different from you. All cultures should be celebrated and loved. But let's be honest, whatever culture you grew up with: Western, Eastern-European, Asian, Middle-Eastern, etc, there are some questionable traditions that you never found weird until you grew up and realized not everyone could relate. Some just seem downright silly, but hey, a part of loving your culture is laughing at your culture!

We never believed them of course, but it seems to be a rite of passage of sorts for most Asian Americans. 105 Give Award Share Report Save

Photographer Takes Pictures Of Famous Landmarks Facing The Wrong Direction

Whenever anyone visits a famous landmark, the first thing they do is take a picture of themselves standing in front of it or just of the site itself. Imagine how many pictures there are out there of the same places, from slightly different angles, but all showing the same thing. But what happens if you have a different perspective, and choose to do something a little, well... backward? Photographer Oliver Curtis decided to mix things up when he visited famous places and took his photos from the wrong direction. He wanted to "turn around, and see a new aspect of the over-photographed sites of the world - to gaze elsewhere and to favor the incidental over the monumental." His collection of pictures seeks to draw attention to the fact that "It is easy to forget that these attractions are also places of work, staffed by janitors, security guards, cleaners and office guards who have a lack of awe born from daily exposure. Yet, despite not being present, the images are still suffused with their aura."

Check out the incredible pictures below, and see how many you would recognize if the names weren't written in!

'Very British Problems' Making Life Awkward For Brits Everywhere

I am British and I know that my fellow Brits and I have a special way of making everything awkward. I know, that statement sounds like I'm in some sort of 'Brits Anonymous' meeting, but I think it's important to acknowledge and embrace who we are at the core of our culture. Is it ridiculous that we insist on being so polite all the time? Yes. but would I change anything about it? No, because when you start pointing out the situations we put ourselves in every day, they are pretty hilarious. Twitter page Very British Problems articulates all the awkward nuances of what it means to be "so very British", and they're brilliantly accurate. So get comfy, make yourself a cup of good old British tea, and have a laugh at our expense.

Tumblr Users Share What Recipes Are Like In Different Cultures

In America, we sprinkle bacon everywhere. Even in places you're not expecting, such as chapstick. Seriously? Why does that exist? And we also sprinkle bacon in places one should never sprinkle bacon. 

Use your imagination, we will not elaborate.

When Artists Use Sex Dolls To Explore The Place Of Women In Our Culture

With her book Play with Me: Dolls, Women and Art, journalist Grace Banks has decided to document how artists use these sex dolls to explore the place of women in our culture. Between objectification, gender and caricature of the female body, these dolls for adults trigger a real ethical and political debate, which contemporary artists seek to dissect. In her book, Grace Banks gathers the work and interviews of 40 artists, centered on the use of these dolls but also on the representation of women in the visual culture. Via: Ufunk

Pink for girls, blue for boys. A girl must be pretty, a boy must be strong. Pink and Blue is a powerful short film that illustrates the cultural differences between girls and boys, the image they have to represent and how to educate them. An awesome video directed by Jake Dypka and Hollie McNish.
