* '''Straight''': Singing at night is an indication that you are a priest, even if you don't want to be one. Few want to be a priest because everyone listens to you. Having others listen to you is considered to be very wrong. If you are a priest, everyone will respect you while also ridiculing you for doing wrong things. Doing wrong things may make you lose your title as priest, but you can easily have it reinstated by singing at night. Publicly getting into fistfights is normal, but only bullies kick each other. Insulting a stranger is fine and dandy, but only behind their back. If you insult someone to their face, you're considered an utter jerk who nobody would ever want to be friends with. [[TrendAesop It is illegal to live behind the times]]. Divorce is very common, but voluntary termination of friendship is extremely rare; friendships nearly always end with either the death of one party or an accidental loss of touch. Betraying a friend is considered to be ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor worse than murder]]''. Eating in public is generally frowned on, with the obvious exception of restaurants. Tipping in a restaurant is regarded as an insult to the quality of the food. Skipping any meal is illegal, unless for medical reasons. Weight loss does not count as a "medical reason"; it must be a matter of life and death.
