好啦給大家看一下要怎麼做音效


垃圾桶


防水的GoPro


準備好了嗎


O~K 大家好 我是元元


我們今天的主題啊


很美很香


就是我們要講到的是


大便


還有整個


上廁所的經驗


法國跟台灣的差別


今天要分享一下我的經驗的發覺


希望你還沒吃飯


不然的話喔你可能要心理準備一下


好第一


就是公開講到


「大便」


法國人好像不管怎麼樣真的不會講到那個


(咳咳)「大便」(咳咳) 這個字


好像是一種禁忌


像那個 Harry Potter 的什麼


佛地魔對不對


就是一個不可以說的字


不管跟同事朋友還是家人


我們還是不會講到就是長大之後


真的很少會聽到那個


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


那個字


就是


我們會用別的方法為了不要說那個字


台灣


常常會聽到有人公開說 就是


我跟你說


我剛剛去大便


很爽


你好嗎


嗯我還不錯還不錯


我剛剛去拉屎


真的很舒服喔


對


或者可能是


喔今天拉肚子


但是其實我最驚訝的部分


是


這樣不只是男生


男生女生都有


我猜啊 我猜很多人會可能留言說


ㄟ其實我們不是全部都這樣子


我 我大概知道啦


但是我相信你也


知道我在講什麼就是


好像台灣人比較會公開


就是比較不害羞


講到這個 這件事情


好 第二點 就是


上廁所聊天或講電話


所以這個我沒有


去過女生的廁所


所以我只能講到男生的部分


我發現男生


上廁所還會講話


講電話或跟朋友聊天


我發現男生


去小便斗


還會常常是


有一隻手控制雞雞


一隻手控制手機


然後會講電話


但是有時候


去上廁所(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


也會講電話


我真的覺得不可思議


如果是我的話


我會非常非常的害怕


那個對方


因為那個房間的回音


會了解我在上廁所


這樣的話我會覺得超級丟臉


所以真的


就是上廁所接電話


所以法國人好像比較安靜


就是上廁所是一個


不可以講話的地方


至少這個是我的經驗


不只是講電話 也是


如果我要上廁所然後旁邊


也有一個朋友一個同事


我也完全不會跟他聊天


就是上廁所是一個不可以講話的地方


對法國人來說


好 第三個就是上廁所的地方


我發現台灣人


好像比較不挑剔


要上什麼樣的廁所


我的意思是


不管是便利商店


餐廳


可能捷運的廁所


台灣人還是會用這些廁所去那個


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


法國人我感覺到


如果要上那個大號


那


先回家再做


喔突然要提到一件事情


就是世界上我最討厭的廁所


你知道是什麼嗎


是美國的隔斷板廁所


就是美國的廁所


那個廁所的下面


會有一個超大的空間


就是你可以看到


旁邊的人的腳


好噁心喔


我這個真的沒辦法


我之前去美國出差


我真的最討厭


在那邊上廁所


我覺得超級不舒服


而且那個門也有一個縫隙


你可以看到外面


外面的人也可以看到你


我真的不懂美國的廁所


台灣


幸好不是那麼誇張


不過台灣也有那個隔斷板


可能公司


還是


捷運的廁所


百貨公司的廁所也是那個隔斷板


沒有很喜歡ㄟ


不過剛剛提到的可能跟第四點有關係就是


上廁所的控制


我感覺到法國人真的有


上廁所的


時間習慣


可能是


早上在家裡還沒去 就是上班的時候


可能是剛到公司


可能是


吃完午餐


每一個人都不一樣


但是每一個人有自己


喜歡上廁所的時間


然後就是非常的固定


一天一次之類的


台灣的話我不確定為什麼但是


感覺到什麼時候


都可以


而且


不只


一天一次喔


常常好像是蠻突然的


我記得我之前


很久以前


還是去夜店的時候


有時候我去洗手間


然後我發現


很多男生


還在那個夜店的廁所


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


我那個時候在想怎麼會


已經是半夜 可能半夜一兩點


還要上廁所


怎麼會不是你今天早上做的嗎


我那個時候真的蠻驚訝


我沒想到就是我


從來沒有


需要這樣


半夜在


這種夜店或餐廳或酒吧的地方


需要上廁所大號


還是有時候


可能我會在捷運站等朋友


然後朋友說啊我等一下要去


去上廁所然後


可能上廁所


超過十分鐘我大概知道


不是尿尿


我覺得怎麼會有這麼突然的


想上廁所


好啦可能我有一點幸運


因為我覺得我的胃很厲害


我是算是


鐵胃


不會 那麼


很突然的想去


上廁所


我不確定為什麼


可能跟食物有關係嗎


對 有時候我真的會聽到


旁邊的廁所


我真的不想知道裡面在發生什麼


因為超級大聲


看起來很可怕


不過這個也是可能我剛剛提到的


就是


法國人喜歡上廁所


要非常的安靜


所以就算


拉肚子 就算


有點狀況


還是會盡量


不要出聲音


不要出任何的噪音


台灣人可能因為比較


不害羞


比較公開 所以


就算


出了很大的聲音


還是不在乎


我不確定


我跟你說一個法國人的秘密


因為法國我們可以把那個衛生紙


丟在馬桶


所以通常很多人會先丟一些


衛生紙


再上大號


這樣不會


出那個聲音


好啦好啦法國人的秘密


好今天的


很香很美的主題


結論是什麼


我感覺到法國人關於上廁所


真的是比較害羞


比較低調


真的很不想讓其他人知道


剛剛上廁所做了什麼


台灣人好像


比較沒有那個禁忌


所以比較會公開


比較不害羞講出來


所以對我來說


有時候我在台灣上廁所真的有點驚訝


聽到旁邊的台灣人


的 那些


上廁所的習慣


因為跟法國差很多


好今天的主題可能是一個


我們通常不會特別講到的


一個文化差別的部分


我還是想分享一下


已經想了很久這個主題


今天終於跟大家分享一下


你如果喜歡這個影片


請你給我一個讚


還有訂閱我的頻道


好 謝謝大家收看


然後跟大家說 下次見


掰掰


喂


喂 哈囉


你好你好


喔對


那個專案


好 那我就是


我等一下要過去


因為我現在在大便


所以我等一下可以過去找你


然後我們一起處理好不好


好


謝謝

OK let me show you how to make the sound effect of pooping


A trash can


A waterproof GoPro


Ready?


O~K Hello everyone this is Yuanyuan


The topic for today


is something beautiful and scented


which is


poo


and also


some experience related to it


and the differences between France and Taiwan


Today I want to share some discovery during these years


I hope you haven't eaten yet


Otherwise you might need to prepare yourself first


OK, firstly,


Taiwanese can always mention about


"poo" publicly


No matter what French people will never talk about


the word "poo"


It's like a taboo,


like Voldemort


in Harry Potter


the word you can never say


No matter to colleagues, friends or families,


we never talk about it, especially after we grow up,


it's really rare for us to hear


"poo"


that forbidden word


And,


we will use other ways to avoid that word


But in Taiwan,


we can hear people talking about it publicly


"Do you know that


I just went to poop


and feels so good now"


"Hi, how are you?


Yeah I am alright


Just finished my pooping


Quite nice


Yeah"


Or people might say he or she


had a diarrhea today


But the most surprised part to me


is that


not only male


but both male and female are like this


I guess many people might leave their messages saying that


we're not all like this


I get it but


I believe you can


understand what I mean


It seems that Taiwanese are more open


and less shy


about this topic


OK, the second point is


chatting or talking on the phone when you are in the restroom


I've never been to


girl's restroom so


I will only share my male experience


I notice that men


can still talk when they are in the restroom


either talking on the phone or chatting with their friends


And I find out that


when Taiwanese men uses the toilet,


they usually can


hold the penis with one hand


and control their phone with another


and might be talking on the phone


And sometimes


when they are pooping,


they can still talking on the phone!


Unbelievable!


If I were them,


I would be very scared


that the person at the other side of the phone call


could realise that I am in a toilet


because of the echo


If so I'd be so embarrassed


So, really,


I totally cannot accept to


talk on the phone when I am in a restroom


French people seem more quiet


For them, the restroom is


somewhere you cannot talk inside


At least this is my experience


Not just talking on the phone,


if I am in a restroom, and


my friend or colleague is next door to me,


I will never chat with him


Restroom is not a place for me to talk


or to French people


The third one is the location


I notice that Taiwanese


are less picky


about where the restrooms are when they are pooping.


I mean,


no matter it's a restroom in a convenient store,


a restaurant,


or in an MRT station,


they can use these restrooms to


poop


For French people,


if they are doing that,


well,


they will go home and do that.


Oh I want to mention something here


Do you know


what's the worst restroom in the world to me?


It's the public restrooms in the US


There are always a huge space


at the bottom of the


restrooms in the US


You can literally see


the foot of the person next to your door


It's soooooo gross!


I really cannot accept this


Before when I had business trips to the US,


the worst thing to me


is really using the restrooms there


It's sooooo uncomfortable


Also there are always a gap on the door


You can see the outside


and the people from the outside can see you as well


I really cannot understand that!


It's so blessed that


the public restrooms in Taiwan are not like that


But they also have that kind of partition


It might be used on the restrooms in the offices,


or


in the MRT stations;


sometimes restrooms in the department stores use that kind of partition


I don't like it


The fourth point is related to what we mentioned, which is


the regularity of pooping


French people have


a routine


when pooping


It might happen


when you are still at home in the morning, before going to work,


or when you just arrive at the office,


or


after lunch


Everyone is different of course


but everyone has his own


routine to do it


And it's very disciplined,


like one time a day or something.


But to Taiwanese, I'm not sure why but


it seems that


they can do it anytime


and


not


only once a day


It often seems quite sudden


I remember


long time ago


when I went to a night club,


I went to the restroom,


and found out that


many people


were in the restroom


pooping


I was thinking, how come,


it's midnight, around 1 or 2 o'clock,


how come they do it at that time


Why didn't they do it in the morning?


I was really surprised at that time


I cannot imagine that


I never


have to


use a restroom during midnight


at a place like a night club, a restaurant, or a bar


to do it


And sometimes,


when I am waiting for my friends in an MRT station,


if he says he needs to use the restroom,


and


it might take


more than 10 minutes, then I realise that


he is not peeing


How come there are such a sudden need


to poop


OK maybe I am a bit luckier


because I think


I have a very strong


stomach


I never have that kind of urge


that I have to go to the toilet


in a rush


I'm not sure why


Maybe it's because of the food we eat?


In addition, sometimes I can here


the restroom next to me


I really don't want to know what's happening in there


because it's super loud


and sounds horrible


This is also what I mentioned earlier


that


French people like to use the restroom


extremely quietly


Even if


they have a diarrhea, or


other kinds of situations,


they will do their best to


not to make any noise


not any tiny little noise


Taiwanese might be


less shy


and more open, so


even if


they make loud noise in a restroom,


they don't really care


I'm not sure


Let me tell you a secret about French people


In Frence we can throw the toilet paper


in the toilet,


so many people will throw some


toilet paper


before they do it


In this way,


there will be no sound when pooping


OK OK it's some little secret of French people


So this is the


beautiful and scented topic


What's the conclusion?


I feel that regarding pooping,


French people are really more shy


and staying low key


They really don't want others to know that


what they did in a toilet


On the contrary, Taiwanese people are


with less taboos


Therefore they are more open


and not shy to speak up


So to me,


sometimes I am surprised when using a restroom


like when hearing the person next to me


or other


pooping habits


because these are really different from what people do in France


OK the topic today might be


a cluture difference or culture shock


we don't usually talk about


But I still want to share my thoughts with you


I have planned for this for a long time


Finally I can share it with you today


If you like this video,


please Like it,


and subscribe to my channel


Thanks for watching


See you next time


Bye bye~


Hello?


Hello?


Hi hi


Yes


About that project


OK, I'll...


I will be there later


I am pooping now


I can meet you later


And then we deal with it together, OK?


OK


Thanks


Bye bye



simplified characters

好啦给大家看一下要怎么做音效


垃圾桶


防水的GoPro


准备好了吗


O~K 大家好 我是元元


我们今天的主题啊


很美很香


就是我们要讲到的是


大便


还有整个


上厕所的经验


法国跟台湾的差别


今天要分享一下我的经验的发觉


希望你还没吃饭


不然的话喔你可能要心理准备一下


好第一


就是公开讲到


「大便」


法国人好像不管怎么样真的不会讲到那个


(咳咳)「大便」(咳咳) 这个字


好像是一种禁忌


像那个 Harry Potter 的什么


佛地魔对不对


就是一个不可以说的字


不管跟同事朋友还是家人


我们还是不会讲到就是长大之后


真的很少会听到那个


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


那个字


就是


我们会用别的方法为了不要说那个字


台湾


常常会听到有人公开说 就是


我跟你说


我刚刚去大便


很爽


你好吗


嗯我还不错还不错


我刚刚去拉屎


真的很舒服喔


对


或者可能是


喔今天拉肚子


但是其实我最惊讶的部分


是


这样不只是男生


男生女生都有


我猜啊 我猜很多人会可能留言说


ㄟ其实我们不是全部都这样子


我 我大概知道啦


但是我相信你也


知道我在讲什么就是


好像台湾人比较会公开


就是比较不害羞


讲到这个 这件事情


好 第二点 就是


上厕所聊天或讲电话


所以这个我没有


去过女生的厕所


所以我只能讲到男生的部分


我发现男生


上厕所还会讲话


讲电话或跟朋友聊天


我发现男生


去小便斗


还会常常是


有一只手控制鸡鸡


一只手控制手机


然后会讲电话


但是有时候


去上厕所(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


也会讲电话


我真的觉得不可思议


如果是我的话


我会非常非常的害怕


那个对方


因为那个房间的回音


会了解我在上厕所


这样的话我会觉得超级丢脸


所以真的


就是上厕所接电话


所以法国人好像比较安静


就是上厕所是一个


不可以讲话的地方


至少这个是我的经验


不只是讲电话 也是


如果我要上厕所然后旁边


也有一个朋友一个同事


我也完全不会跟他聊天


就是上厕所是一个不可以讲话的地方


对法国人来说


好 第三个就是上厕所的地方


我发现台湾人


好像比较不挑剔


要上什么样的厕所


我的意思是


不管是便利商店


餐厅


可能捷运的厕所


台湾人还是会用这些厕所去那个


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


法国人我感觉到


如果要上那个大号


那


先回家再做


喔突然要提到一件事情


就是世界上我最讨厌的厕所


你知道是什么吗


是美国的隔断板厕所


就是美国的厕所


那个厕所的下面


会有一个超大的空间


就是你可以看到


旁边的人的脚


好恶心喔


我这个真的没办法


我之前去美国出差


我真的最讨厌


在那边上厕所


我觉得超级不舒服


而且那个门也有一个缝隙


你可以看到外面


外面的人也可以看到你


我真的不懂美国的厕所


台湾


幸好不是那么夸张


不过台湾也有那个隔断板


可能公司


还是


捷运的厕所


百货公司的厕所也是那个隔断板


没有很喜欢ㄟ


不过刚刚提到的可能跟第四点有关系就是


上厕所的控制


我感觉到法国人真的有


上厕所的


时间习惯


可能是


早上在家里还没去 就是上班的时候


可能是刚到公司


可能是


吃完午餐


每一个人都不一样


但是每一个人有自己


喜欢上厕所的时间


然后就是非常的固定


一天一次之类的


台湾的话我不确定为什么但是


感觉到什么时候


都可以


而且


不只


一天一次喔


常常好像是蛮突然的


我记得我之前


很久以前


还是去夜店的时候


有时候我去洗手间


然后我发现


很多男生


还在那个夜店的厕所


(咳咳)大便(咳咳)


我那个时候在想怎么会


已经是半夜 可能半夜一两点


还要上厕所


怎么会不是你今天早上做的吗


我那个时候真的蛮惊讶


我没想到就是我


从来没有


需要这样


半夜在


这种夜店或餐厅或酒吧的地方


需要上厕所大号


还是有时候


可能我会在捷运站等朋友


然后朋友说啊我等一下要去


去上厕所然后


可能上厕所


超过十分钟我大概知道


不是尿尿


我觉得怎么会有这么突然的


想上厕所


好啦可能我有一点幸运


因为我觉得我的胃很厉害


我是算是


铁胃


不会 那么


很突然的想去


上厕所


我不确定为什么


可能跟食物有关系吗


对 有时候我真的会听到


旁边的厕所


我真的不想知道里面在发生什么


因为超级大声


看起来很可怕


不过这个也是可能我刚刚提到的


就是


法国人喜欢上厕所


要非常的安静


所以就算


拉肚子 就算


有点状况


还是会尽量


不要出声音


不要出任何的噪音


台湾人可能因为比较


不害羞


比较公开 所以


就算


出了很大的声音


还是不在乎


我不确定


我跟你说一个法国人的秘密


因为法国我们可以把那个卫生纸


丢在马桶


所以通常很多人会先丢一些


卫生纸


再上大号


这样不会


出那个声音


好啦好啦法国人的秘密


好今天的


很香很美的主题


结论是什么


我感觉到法国人关于上厕所


真的是比较害羞


比较低调


真的很不想让其他人知道


刚刚上厕所做了什么


台湾人好像


比较没有那个禁忌


所以比较会公开


比较不害羞讲出来


所以对我来说


有时候我在台湾上厕所真的有点惊讶


听到旁边的台湾人


的 那些


上厕所的习惯


因为跟法国差很多


好今天的主题可能是一个


我们通常不会特别讲到的
