    You have good eyes.

    People will probably brush it off as a stereotype, but... well, I don't know. I'm just going by experience, like I usually do. It's funny how the Japanese aren't the smartest people around, but they aim for perfection a lot of the time... which is why a lot of stuff in Japan tends to be well-made. I think the Chinese are smarter than the Japanese, but they don't pay so much attention to the quality of their stuff. All they want is money, and everyone knows Chinese businessmen are extremely shrewd. Of course, that's not necessarily a bad thing, depending on how you see it.

    Exactly two weeks I made it. Asians are stereotyped as being more boring because they study more than everyone else. Not necessarily more hardoworking. A chinese student who can't do a lick of field work is considered a woman no matter how hard he studies. What I mean by that statement is manual labor is considered harder.

    That's one of the most racist and unfounded things I've ever heard anyone say on this website ^^;

    If the Chinese are incapable of manual labor, who the heck built Chinese civilization? (which predates our own by several hundreds of years)

    Re: Japanese Students

    Just a funny tip about the Students, they stay in there uniforms ALL day and night. It's weird because it would be 10pm and you would see the girls and guys walking and hanging out in the allies at the same time in their uniforms still. And grated the teenage girls look really cute and old enough! I wish that I went to highschool in Japan. If you have ever seen an anime...it's exactly like it!!

    They even wear the outfit on days when they don't even have class. Probably just trying to get the males to drool.
