What is your most memorable cultural shock?

My answer to What is your most memorable cultural shock?

Answer by Desmond Last:

I was in the Northern Territory Australia. On my way to a new job working in a Gold Mine at Pine Creek and a workshop in Katherine.

I was waiting in the queue for the shower near Mataranka. It had been a four day drive from Sydney. I had only been in Australia for 12 months.

All the blokes were built like piles of bricks, tough looking, My turn came. I walked into the shower cubicle.

Arrggggh. It was alive. You name it and it was in there. A snake, spiders, cockroaches – a real zoo. I clamped my mouth shut and resisted the urge to run out screaming .

I walked out calmly. The next big bloke walked in, he looked as tough as nails.

Loved it. He ran out yelling. No way I am having a shower in there he yelled plus a few colorful expressions.

I could not stop laughing.

My work includes an outline of my New Perspective on Counter Terrorism. I have also written about and warned Governments on the developing threat from the use of Bio-Technologies (Brain2Computer) and Energy Weapons being used by Criminal and Terrorist Organisations. I have developed a reform of the United Nations and written a New System for Climate Change Policy and Disaster Management. My New System of Economics does not support Aid to end Third World Poverty instead it utilizes economic empowerment of Communities to do so. I seek freedom through a Bill of Rights for Creatures Gr8 & Small. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the CIA and MI5/6 have never acknowledged my writing neither have the BBC, CCN and any Australian Media.
