D-D-Go : "Is it safe to travel to USA considering gun violence?"

 

'Mental Floss'  thread from 2016 ... 

 

https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/68276/25-unusual-foreign-travel-warn...

 

25 Foreign Travel Warnings for Visiting the U.S.

 

What do foreign tourists worry about when they visit the U.S.? Expensive emergency healthcare, overly sensitive attitudes towards nude sunbathing, and gross tap water, apparently. That's according to travel warnings for potential U.S. tourists from around the world. These government-issued advisories can seem like common sense for Americans, but they also reveal significant cultural differences between the U.S. and other countries.

 

1.  DON’T GET RIPPED OFF AT AN ORLANDO GAS STATION (UK)

2. TAKE CARE OF THE FLOWERS (CHINA)

  The Chinese government suggests several common rules of etiquette for the U.S., including the following suggestion: “Take good care of flowers and trees, etc.”

 

4. DO NOT STALK ANYONE (GERMANY)

5. WATCH OUT FOR GUNS AT NIGHTTIME (CANADA)

6. STAY AWAY FROM THE EAST COAST (CHINA

 The Chinese government says that the West Coast of the U.S. is safer than the East Coast: “Overall, the western United States is safer than the eastern portion, and a city is relatively safe during the day compared to at night.”

"... Oakland & Richmond in Bay area ... in particular."

 

7. REALLY, WATCH OUT FOR GUNS (GERMANY)

Seriously, foreign travelers get an earful about America’s love affair with firearms. Here’s what the German government says: “In the USA, it is comparatively easy to obtain possession of guns. If you are the victim of an armed attack, do not try to fight back!” 

8. DOORS MIGHT BE CLOSED (RUSSIA)

9. DO NOT INSPIRE ROAD RAGE (CHINA)

11. DON'T PEE IN THE STREET (SWITZERLAND

13. TRY TO AVOID BEING NAKED (GERMANY)

" ... zeee germans ... "

15. DON’T CUT IN LINE (CHINA

" ... 'cause you might catch a bullet in the Super ..."

18. THE TAP WATER TASTES GROSS (AUSTRIA

19. THE AMERICAN DREAM ISN’T REAL (RUSSIA)

surprise

24. TAXI DRIVERS KNOW NOTHING (RUSSIA

angel

25. PAY YOUR TRAFFIC TICKETS (GERMANY)

United States is reporting already on the first person contaminated with the "mysterious" SARS-like Coronavirus -how imperial it sounds!-. They also call it "the mysterious virus" and it went from animal-to-humans and now from humans-to-humans.

Chinese people pride to spit everywhere. It is a cultural trait to show off and inconsiderately about anyone around, every one of them spits. That is why it went viral. There should be a sieze of consciousness coming from them and stop from travelling around the world, no matter the plans they had for their China New Year.

Coincidently, this virus it broke up from animals right by the time of the "Rat Year". It couldn't be any more symbolic than that since this is an animal of many evils, responsible, once, centuries ago of the Black Death, which had e-rat-icated Europe's population up to 200 million people. It originated, in China, along the Road silk around 1343.

Nah, it's a mere coincidence, and accidentally, an alignment of the planets. Or, just the way Chinese think to believe: "you're thinking too much."

Welcome to the Rat Year!

New York has 1000 cases now. Washington and California have also many cases. I think it won’t be safe to travel now and USA government blocked many foreigners to enter USA.so even you want to travel , it might not be possible for many foreigners.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
