narnia: What should I absolutely not do when visiting the USA?

I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor mistake disobeying a traffic sign. Back home in Australia it's considered polite to get out of your car and walk over to the police officer's car and hand him your license so he doesn't have to get out of his seat.

 I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI
 had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor
 mistake disobeying a traffic sign. Back home in Australia it's considered polite to
 get out of your car and walk over to the police officer's car and hand him your
 license so he doesn't have to get out of his seat. I wanted to be extra polite so I
 immediately jumped out of my car and walked towards his car while reaching
 into my back pocket.
 I'm lucky to be alive.
 If you come from a gun-free country like the UK or Australia you don't have any
 natural instinct for gun culture. You don't realize that police assume that
 everyone is armed.
 Things got immediately serious. The police officer's hand went to his weapon
 and I responded by dropping to my knees with my hands up. He yelled a bunch
 of things at me but my memory is vague because my heartbeat was suddenly
 pulsing in my ears blotting out all sound. I don't know if he drew his weapon or
 not. I was staring intently at the ground, shaking and trying to project non-
 threatening vibes. My next memory is that there were three police cars around
 me and a bunch of cops who'd been called for backup. They were all keeping

No but take the time to actually read it because I lost like 15 minutes.

I have a friend who is really good at this type of thing.  He once found an old globe at a garage sale and he was able to pin the date of it’s making down to like a 6 month window, because it only would’ve been correct during a specific point in WWII.  
I was mad impressed, because I have no mind for geography.  I can barely remember my own state’s capitol.

 typical english behaviour
 adventures-in-asexuality
 I think what's more creepily imperialistic is the reaction of everyone in Narnia to
 the Pevensies
 Like, the Pevensies end up the royal family in large part because everyone's like
 it has been prophesied that you will come and rule us and everything will be
 great!' and, well, in-universe l can't really fault them on that, if I were a young
 teen or pre-teen in a completely foreign country, I too would probably just go
 along with whatever seem to make people friendly to me
 But the reaction of the Narnians, in almost ubiquitously welcoming these
 foreigners as obviously destined to rule them even though they know nothing of
 the country and the culture... now that is some creepily imperialist writing

 This is the only good reblog of this post in it's entire 3 year hellscape existence

 I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI
 had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor
