In the West, don’t mention religion. Catholic/protestant causes more fights than anything else. Even saying you follow Celtic/Rangers can be enough.
In the North, any mention of sheep-shagging will get you punched.(Dette er visst fordi de blir mobbet en del for det av alle andre)
In Edinburgh, if you say you like Glasgow or the West, you will immediately be hated.
And basically in all of Scotland, if you praise England or suggest we are one country, you will not be welcome.
The US Committee for Safety of Foreign Exchange Students had reported that over 18 months, 33 foreign exchange students living in the US had declared having been raped or abused by members of their host families. Mr. Gould also found that from 2000 cases of abuse of children placed in homestays in 1998, only 1% had been reported to law enforcement agencies; the rest had been reported to tour operators, teachers or adults. No further action could, therefore, be taken and, consequently, there was a situation of under-reporting on this problem and very little information on the offenders.
