Where does your tongue stay when you’re not speaking? If you’re an English-speaker, it’s behind the top front teeth. If you’re a Russian-speaker, it’s on the bottom of your mouth, lying flat.

#what #for real

I JUST FREAKING CONSCIOUSLY CHECKED AND TRIED TO MAKE IT LAY FLAT BUT NO, IT’S SERIOUSLY AT THE TOP OF MY MOUTH. I DON’T LIKE THIS

 

I’m guessing it’s because most English words start with a downward motion from the tongue, and the opposite for Russian.

Monument to last Japanese wolf.
Wolves in Japan became extinct during the Meiji restoration period, an extermination known as ōkami no kujo. The wolf was deemed a threat to ranching which the Meiji government promoted at the time, and targeted via a bounty system and a direct chemical extermination campaign inspired by the similar contemporary American campaign. The last Japanese wolf was a male killed on the 23 January 1905 near Washikaguchi (now called Higashi Yoshiro) Honshū Wolf monument in Nara Prefecture, Japan. This monument inscribed with a haiku was erected in the village of Higashi-Yoshino. The haiku by Toshio Mihashi says: 
I walk
 With that wolf
 That is no more.
