president obama says ‘six’ in chinese

i’d much rather trust someone as chill as him than someone who gives the shocker on camera. Although, after further research, it turns out that the ‘shaka’ has different interpretations than just ‘hang loose’:

  • in britain and northern europe, the symbol is used as a signal for owners of older model volkswagen vans when passing on roads
  • in new zealand, it signifies smoking meth in a glass pipe
  • in india and venezuela, it symbolizes sexual intercourse

be careful who you give hang loose hand sign to because you might unwittingly be inviting six vw-owning chinese people to hit the meth pipe with you. i mean, just theoretically.
