How is independence day usually spent in other countries (that have them)? Like, any traditions or ceremonies?
well it's rather lively I think.There's like a lot of sh*t about the war and shizzle.But I wouldn't know what people actually do since I completely remove myself from society on these days.
One must sacrifice a lot to become a higher being

Best local food?

Well, in here, everyone just kinda chills out for the whole day or something. It's just another holiday, really.

As for the food, we have, from the top of my mind...
-Feijoada
-Pastel
-Brigadeiro & Beijinho

and a lot of other delicious foods that I just recently heard simply don't happen anywhere else in the world. Feel free to google these~

How much extra spending can someone with an average income afford?

That depends on what you mean by "average."

If you're talking about the average filipino salary, then that's like $1 an hour. And that's for a relatively mid-high level job. Most of the working class in the country live on $.60 an hour.

If you're talking average american salary (which would be about $10-15 per hour), hell, that'd be enough to buy a mansion if you plan right.

That average is disputable but it's not going to buy you a mansion unless you win the lottery or come into some nice cashies lmao You have living costs, emergency funds, and the growing desire of a human heart.

In England most people only get paid minimum wage £6.31($10.83, €7.96) because there are three million(10% if everybody at working age) unemployed that will take the job if nobody else wants if for that money.

I don't think I'd want a mansion there.

Really, in America, it's more about how you spend your money than It is about how much you make. My family does not make a lot, but becuase of our smart spending, many people view us as upper-middle to lower-rich class.

College or university is so damn expensive in USA though. A 3 year bachelor degree here in Belgium costs about 2-3k. Master is 5-10k at most.

US government should fix that asap.

Our colleges do tend to be a lot larger though, therefore require more expenses. Plus scholarships are quite common so most of the time, people don't pay the full tuition rates. I'm going into a $20K college for free because of scholarships

In the UK we can pay up to £9000 a year, and a minimum of £6000 a year, so Belgium is dirt cheap.
"The Browne Review was published on 12 October 2010 and contained proposals to remove the cap on tuition fees. The resulting debate on the proposals sparked protests from students opposed to any rise in tuition fees. Despite these protests the government won a vote in the House of Commons which would result in universities eventually being able to charge students up to £9,000 a year for the annual tuition costs of students. 64 universities announced their intention to charge the full £9,000 allowed by the government from 2012, with the remaining 59 all charging at least £6,000."

Most(private) to all(public) college/university expenses are covered by the government here. University students often get scholarships too.

£9,000 a year

I've found most of Western Europe to be pretty much the same.

Also $20k is not going to cover everything.. There's lodging, food, books, etc. Most scholarships pay for only the class.
Also, a lot of my friends are paying $20k just for one semester ._. I don't need no fucking big college to get the same basic edumacation I could get somewhere else for a cheaper price.

I was curious.

Most people here have black hair.And I think I've seen brown in rare cases.But never redheads or blondes.

Wait seriously?
I thought black hair was the majority in almost all countries.I didn't know it could actually be that low anywhere in any country.

Black Hair is not a majority anywhere. Dark Brown and Blonde are usually the majority
