The Tintin series has taught me many a great thing in life... one such example is:

- Never, under any circumstances, get hit on the head so many times. Urgh, concussions.

I'm small enough as it is, I don't need gangsters hitting me on the head with clubs or guns! XD

While we're on the subject of America... Tintin has taught me never to eat a hot dog as long as I live...I could be eating someone's little Fritzy.

(If you have no idea what I mean, I invite you to the "Bad News about Tintin in America" thread.)

Most important lesson that I've learned from Tintin comes from the Picaros when Tintin has been dosed with Calculus' anti-alcohol treatment and spits out the whisky he is offered.

Ridgewell says 'Young idiot! D'you want to get yourself murdered'.

This advice came in very useful when I was living in China and was offered the local beer which tasted like cat urine and now that I'm living in Japan and am often offered things that more closely resemble slime than food. As Ridgewell says 'it's important not to offend them'.

Tintin has taught me that not actually writing or submitting articles is no barrier to a career in journalism

Rather ironically, considering the opprobrium that Herge has received in recent years, I like to think that reading the books as a child helped me to develop a respect for other cultures and races. But then Tintin in the Congo hadn't been published in English when I was a child.....:)

The sailors worst enemy is not a heavy fog through icebergs, huge tides, no. The sailors worst enemy is a DRINK...of water of course.

Thug, I echo and salute your first comment. Tintin's behavior toward new cultures and environments were a textbook lesson for me in racial acceptance. He sets a great example.
