I sympathize with you concern and truely feel proud that you raised the issue (I would think the forum is not the right place to do it as it is a forum where students from all across the world participate .... ) which is quite personal and something that is new and different.

When I came to the US, I thought this was something awkward and the practise is not really clean per se. I later realised that this is not that bad afterall its usage model is to clean oneself which is what you are really doing with toilet paper.

Anyway, hang in there as more surprises are on the way -- but in short you will realise that America is a different place and a place where things are done differently and methodically.

BTW, which part of India are u from!!! Quite curious that you were not told about it before coming over here. FYI, I hope you know the difference between "biscuts" and "cookies"... I went into a store as asked for biscuts and bought it home to be returned back as biscuts are food for animals and "cookies" are the ones humans eat.... there are many more that u will learn the hard and embarrasing way!!!!

Later.

Since we're on the topic,

Toilets of the World
We've all been there. Nature calls and the only answer is a toilet with more levers, switches, and buttons than Wily E. Coyote's latest invention. What to do? If you're Bob Cromwell, the answer is obvious: You take a picture. Dedicated to the man and the latrines he's dared to use, Toilets of the World features photos and captions from Bob's many encounters with the cryptic, the seatless, and the downright weird. During his travels through Russia, East Asia, and South America, Bob never met a commode he didn't want to remember. From an Ottoman-era throne of a more modest variety to a hole-in-the-ground kind enough to offer tips on feet placement, you're bound to gain a quick appreciation for Bob, the Indiana Jones (and Ansel Adams) of latrines.

By all means, stay away from dog biscuits. However biscuits are also people food. People biscuits differ from cookies in that they are generally unsweetened and are also more fluffy than cookies due to the addition of baking powder and baking soda into the biscuit batter. One favorite way to eat people biscuits in the USA is hot from the oven with a healthy portion of melted butter spread on the inside. Sometimes sugar is added to the biscuit mix if one chooses to use the biscuit in a desert such as strawberry shortcake.

Its not your bum thats all crusty, laloo its your brain thats full of it!! and no amount of water can get rid of that :laugh:

Honestly why did you come to this forum? to pick fights, start anal topics about toilet paper? Most of us were pretty happy here till you arrived, grow up or crawl back to where you came from!! If you want some serious help, everyone on this forum will be more than glad to help you, but if you've come here to create trouble, then please leave. Oh and while your washing that crusty stuff of your brain, use it on your mouth too, maybe your next post will come out sounding a little nicer.

The last thing one would expect in this forum is a slanging match on culture and which one is better.
Now that everyone has expressed thier opinions, how about closing this thread.

We must respect other people's opinions and interests. If we are not interested in those things, then we can keep quiet. If you disagree, then you can voice it politely keeping in mind the other persons freedom of expression. Getting angry or insulting achieves absolutely nothing.
These are Mrinalini`s words in her earlier post... seems she forgot about them !!!!

Thanks for reminding me nondentist:) . My biggest mistake was reacting to trolls. I wont do it anymore. I think the best punishment for attention seeking individuals is to not give them what they want most,"attention".

Kishn :

Hold on budy , I have just seen this post . (I MYSELF ) use water ,but since you started your thread by saying ( Advice for a somewhat delicate issue ) ,then you should RESPECT this delicacy .

feels disgusting
better than walking around with ur bum all crusty keynesisback
You think you'r tough dude ????? if you have the guts , try to post these 2 sentances on the Dental or pre-Dental forums where American students post .I bet they will knock your head down & make you a joke .Try it & let me know what happined .

OR how about this ; Try to say those 2 sentances to a US immigration officer.............maybe he will pack you and ship you back on the same plane you came on .

If you are coming to a new(western ) country ,you should at least respect there cultur, in case you want them to respect your culture .

i'm not the one picking fights bh.and by the way i've not come here to make trouble but if you want some you'll get some.
I do not think so hunny .you are a new member and you started your 1st thread fighting with everyone .Read the whole thread from the biginig & tell me who is really starting the fight here ????

u cant get a fresher feeling than that
If you still wanna fight with everyone ,I guess I have other alternatives to refresh your BBBBBBBu.............rain .


THINK WISE BEFOR YOU RESPOND TO OTHER MEMBERS .
