    Not a question, but the concept of a guest being obliged to pay to attend a wedding completely boggles my mind. I'd never attend another wedding if that were a universal custom.

    I genuinely enjoy reading Maciamo's observations about Japan and the Japanese, but i'd just make one observation: he does live in Tokyo, and i wonder if that colors his perceptions at all.

    I have OCD, and I have yet to meet a Japanese person who knew what that was, really. When I've explained it to them, almost invariably i've gotten "Why don't you just think positively, forget about...

    This will also not help China if it hopes to be a first world superpower:



    Gotta love the honesty of the Chinese government. I'd post the link to this article, but it doesn't work anymore.

    I trim there regularly with scissors. It's just part of normal hygiene for me. Shaving is not recommended as the hair can become *****ly. I also trim underarms with scissors as it really does help to...

    Except that I would disagree that it looks pre-pubescent. It's really reaching to equate the two concepts. It looks like an adult that has used scissors or a razor.

    And yes, it would not be rude...

    I would echo some of kirei's ideas, but there are some exceptions. I'm only somewhat hairy on my chest and stomach (nowhere else thanks <_<), but none of the Japanese women i've known hated it and...
