Sturtle on what he, as
"New York is so hip to walking, they've made it okay to eat en route. Most of America is kinda funny about eating away from the table. We'll consume lunch in the car if we've just hit the Burger King drive-through, and we'll even eat on our feet at carnivals and such, but other than that, there seems to be an aversion to eating on the go. In Europe it's even worse; there, if you're not actually seated at a goddamn table in the beer garden and you so much as pop an M&M in your mouth, they'll extradite your ass and put you on the next plane headed west."
That's definitely the kinda thing I noticed after living here a while (here's another: the ubiquity of Goya. I don't know whether they even had it in Kansas, but it's all over the damned place here). What sorts of idiosyncratically mundane stuff have you noticed that's unique about where you live or places you've stayed for a spell?
