Thumbs down on thumbs up
It's no wonder the Fonz is shunned in Sardinia and Greece (of course), as well as in less-travelled countries like Nigeria, Iran and Afghanistan. In these cultures, the thumbs-up sign is the foulest of gesticular insults, roughly meaning "Up yours!" (Try watching "Happy Days" on TV using this meaning for the gesture. It's a good time.) In Thailand, it's not so much offensive as silly or mocking, like a child sticking out his tongue. Either way, it can make things awkward when hitch-hiking or reviewing movies.

More Researchers have only recently found the longest large mammal migration in the continental United States: Mule deer migrate 150 miles (241 kilometers) in western Wyoming each year. And it's no easy task for them—barriers include highways, fences, tough terrain, and bodies of water. In this video by Joe Riis, a National Geographic grantee and regular contributor, see the modern-day obstacles mule deer overcome to make the migratory trek that they likely have been making for generations.
