    That the icon for tea is a teabag.

    I always saw a weird mouth with its tongue sticking out.

    I saw that too, at first. It might have taken me a few hundred hours of playing to realize otherwise....

    It’s the sheep icon that one struggles with, that back face is invisible when small.
    Because one is a New Zealander one would imagine better visibility, or maybe it’s because it is not accurate enough it looks foreign.

    Only found out a few days ago, after 1200 hours playing that mods work in multiplayer..

    Personally I'd prefer if they used this character as a symbol for cha: 茶

    It's funny, when I play online, I always tell people that I have the tongue luxury when I get tea, so yeah, I hear ya dawg. Apparently Norwegians can't see the obvious tongue... :p

    One moment in my life I will never forget was walking down the stairs in the morning tired and my autistic son looked up at me and suddenly said ‘I want to teabag your grandad’. Such moments are without response.

    For some reason, for the longest time, I saw them as Red Cross Backpacks or even tents. Don’t ask me why. Maybe it was that they have that red spot at the bottom. :D

    You know what? As a child, when I played civ 1, I always thought the icon for the settler was a kind of "bee". Only later I realized that is should be some kind of wagon.

    Oh, God.. I thought I was the only one. I didn't realize that until around Civ III.
