Things you didn’t know about Hawaii 


Things you didn’t know about Hawaii 

Things you didn’t know about Hawaii or maybe you did know, either way, let’s get on with this shall we.

Things you didn’t know about Hawaii

# Not allowed to be double handed (double fisted) at a bar. What does this mean? You can have in your possession a shot and a beer at a bar but you can’t have two drinks in your clutches, like 2 Mai Tai’s or 2 beers. I guess as to establish some sort a 1 Drink per 1 Person Policy or something.

# Here in da Islands, We love SPAM! Any kine SPAM! … canned mystery meat… but, YUM, YUM, YUM !!! 

# This one’s not actually a law or rule as much as it might be a warning to any travelers. Beware of SPAM. You might already know to avoid the canned meat section at the market (because, gross), but in Hawaii, they love some canned potted meat. Hawaiians are actually the country’s biggest consumers of SPAM. Bottom line, da buggah tastes ono (good), maybe not da most healty, but you only live once…. so, CHEEEEEE Huuuuuuuu!!!!! CHANCE UMMmmmm \m/

# Fish, Again? That’s right! What were you expecting!!! Where else on this planet are you going to get such a fresh and ultimate variety of seafood cuisine? You’re in Hawaii! Poke Bowls come in all shapes, flavors & sizes these days… Get experimental and let your taste buds enjoy a savory, flavor bonanza of Goodness. 

# Don’t Feed the Sharks

In Hawaii, it’s illegal to feed sharks, though it shouldn’t be, because anyone foolish enough to actually kick off the hunger instinct of a shark deserves what’s coming to them. It’s also illegal to be in possession of shark fin in Hawaii and for good reason. There is no reason to contribute to vast amounts of sharks being slaughtered daily for nothing more then the use of the fins on their body.  They are the ocean part of natures perfect balance and her ultimate cleaning machines. No matter what bad sea tales may loom in their shadows, sharks are still freaking awesome & magnificent.

# Riding in the back of a pickup-truck

Being that there are a lot of big families with large family numbers in the State, for economical purposes, In Hawaii, it is totally fine for someone to sit in the back of a moving pickup truck without wearing any kind of safety equipment.

I bet that’s one of the Things you didn’t know about Hawaii .

# Pidgin – “Language of Emotions” declared a language

English and Hawaiian are the official languages of the state, but there’s also a mash-up of these two tongues that’s been evolving ever since the 1800s as a result of the influx of new people to the state. This hybrid pidgin/creole is considered the “language of emotions” and it’s spoken by a large portion of the state’s population (though they’re also English speakers).

# Billboards Are 100% Illegal

Here’s a rule that more states in the U.S. could benefit from. In Hawaii, it’s illegal to put up a billboard. Of course, that kind of makes sense. After all, when you’ve got ridiculously gorgeous natural splendor stretching out on all sides, why in the heck would you want to pollute that experience with some unnecessary advertising?

# One of the world’s largest (and, coincidentally, the most active) volcano is the Kilauea volcano — it’s been going strong for 600,000 years.

  The Big Island is getting bigger by about 42 acres each year due to the continuous eruption of the Kīlauea Volcano.
