    Thanks for that. I enjoy cross-cultural glimpses like that.

    I also really enjoyed the russian/american version.

    Even if it does paint a rather cliche picture of the russians.

    1. Nope, it is for eating too... unless you are having a party ... or something.

    2. Hipsters... enough said. But you can tell where the bad neighborhoods are once you get accustomed to the area... or actually ask people that live there.

    3. HA HA HA HA -________________________________________-

    4. ........................... wut?

    5. "Free"

    6. This one is a yes.

    7. ehhhhh, depends on how you are laughing. You know, you don't want to laugh at a quiet place.

    8. NO. check-out times tend to be banal talk.

    9. You can tell the difference between carbonated and sugar-ladened-orange "juice"

    10. :\

    Number 3 got me, lol. The place I live isn't that big of an issue when it comes to traffic... but if I were to go to S.F. I'd get honked at for days.

    In Japan, meals at home are for eating, because your stomach is vacant. At an American’s dinner, there is food, decorations on the table and tableware, and music to produce a fun atmosphere. It is a time for maintaining rich human relationships. Therefore, the meal is as long as 40 minutes.
    I highly prefer Japan's way

    The Japanese don't use sarcasm.

    However, they toe the line of politeness to the point of frequently not telling the truth, even though it's expected that you get the gist. I guess it's because people there have an aching sense of what failure means to them. Meanwhile, in the U.S., you can get away with being a proud fuck up, making it easier to speak plainly about your faults. Sometimes it's seen as valid justification not to excel since there is a stronger sense of individual identity here.
