From the curious to the downright bizarre, here are ten peculiar habits people actually have, but you may not be aware of. You might think most people simply pull down their pants to their ankles to take a dump but holy moly!

This is mainly done through the culture and the norms in the United States. There are many things that the United States does differently, whether they be small things or things that will change how people view America altogether. America has made a lot of friends and enemies across the world and all of them usually share the same sentiment about the United States. The land of the free is a great place, but a weird one at that. The day to day life in America isn't the same in every part of the country, but much of the country does share these smaller quirks that make America what it is. There are many more things than the 25 quirks listed here that make America standout in the grand scheme of things, but these are the ones that need to be addressed the most. As many may already know the term 'soccer' isn't used many other places in the world to describe the game of football. Instead of using the term football, the United States gave the term to another genre of sport. Stripping the name football from the sport where you kick a ball, they had to give it another name. This is how the term soccer came about.

We all have weird quirks that are fairly uncommon, to say the least. For the fear of being judged we keep them to ourselves, however, that doesn't stop us from being curious about what others have to hide. So, to indulge in this secret knowledge, Twitter user drakesbrother started a thread asking people to share their weird confessions. The thread was quickly flooded with the strangest habits. Some confessed to measuring how long something will take in songs, others said that each time they get in their car, they make sure no one is sitting in the back seat. While some of these things do sound a little bit odd, let's not pretend that you don't relate. Scroll below for the list of confessions and don't forget to share your's in the comments.
While I usually blog about language learning , I know a lot of you enjoy my travel and cultural updates as much or more. I've been travelling the world since , but even forgetting the time involved, I have lived in twenty three countries and counting ; that's lived as in, spent at least a month usually three, and over a year in some in the country where I invested serious time into speaking its language or already spoke its language on arrival and tried to investigate its culture and made local friends. In that, I have acquired a lot of personal habits which to some might seem weird, annoying or strange. This post summarizes them all. I can point you to travelers who have been to many more countries than I have most of whom have been travelling way less than I have, so it really shows the different speeds we travel at , but my style of travel and theirs is very different and I feel like I have gotten to know the modern cultures of each of these countries much more than the majority of passers-through ever do. The thing about living in a country and truly attempting to understand its culture and language, is that you have to pick up a lot of their customs to stand out less and make them feel more comfortable. Some of these I have done only in passing and stopped almost immediately after leaving the country, but quite a few as you'll see here have stuck with me for life. This strange custom is one that I picked up from spending an entire year in Brazil. I travelled a lot in the country, and had my own home some of the time, but the rest of the time would stay with friends.
