It's a pretty vague question, to be honest.

People are people pretty much. But of course, there are various cultural differences.

But if you aren't more specific it's pretty hard to answer.

Well, basically just like I said before. Japanese people are usually very shy toward people they don't already know. From an American's perspective, it can seem as though they are being quite rude. But it isn't that at all. If you can simply break the ice, suddenly they are all smiles, and extremely friendly. It is just a cultural thing, and nothing less.

Another anecdote, one thing which in fact bugs the hell out of me, but when there is some food or some snacks or something to go around, Japanese people will pass it all around, and ask every person, "would you not like to eat this? will you not have some?"

In the US, we'd just say "hey, there's some chips and dip over here, help yourself."

But what I've come to realize, is that in Japan it is rude to take. Hence the offerings.

For me, this is an annoying and tedious situation. But, having come to an understanding of the reasoning behind it, it makes it less so.

Here's a recent talk by David Harvey. I was just watching it, but thought I'd post it.

Do yourself a favor and skip to 8:30 or 9:00. The introducer is abysmal, and the beginning of the presentation is just playing to the crowd, and not relevant or interesting for the youtube viewer.

My first girl was Lebanese..

5 8, long legs and thin waste but she had a humongous ass and the most powerful eyes I ever seen. To this day I'm still in love with her.
