Is it true that some Eastern cultures don't find bodily functions rude?

Asked by ScottyMcGeester (968 points ) September 12th, 2012

I always hear things like “In the Middle East, India, China and/or Japan it’s okay to burp or fart because it means you enjoyed the meal.” But I’m never sure if that’s actually true or some myth that people always pass around.
