    no what i meant was hell this is not about keeping score like kids (like those, "well they did it, why can us") wth right?

    anyways, china is on the rise but compare to japan there are still 15-20 years to go

    You must remember that alot of things in Japan and Japanese culture and life, originated from China. Kyoto was modelled on the captial city of China during the 9th century, studying Chinese was the part of the basic eductation for the higher classes during the Heian period (10th century), and even the modern Japanese writing system also uses alot of Chinese characters (Kanji) in it.
    The two countries are very similar... I don't like one better than the other.

    It's like asking which is better America or England.

    And as for the darker side of China, don't forget that Japan doesn't exactly have a very clean history either.
    But while we're comparing, what about Korea? Yes Korea, the forgoten Asian nation. I find all three countries to be very interesting. I want to visit all three one day. All through I can see myself spending more time in Japan, since it is the country I know more about, and the only one where I can somewhat speak the language.

    Hey now, "forgotten"?! A little harsh there. Personally, I think the ranking of Asian nations goes like this:
    (Really now, people, don't even BOTHER to take offense at this. Don't waste my time and YOUR time arguing)
    Korea>Japan>China>All the other countries.

    Oh, yeah. India deserves a spot near China, maybe runner-up .

    So thus, by my little list, Japan is better. Simply for the fact that any country that doesn't have 25 people for every sq. inch FAILS.
    Maybe I'll come up eith a sig soon... until then, be patient.

    This is a ridiculous thread. Japan is no better than China and vice versa.

    ranking asian nations really has to be more specific, otherwise it's insulting to even have this discussion, which seems to be based on superficial banter at this point. it's not f*/kn fantasy football. you're talking about two countries with histories older than the US which in all accounts is a thread of its own, and they deserve more respect than that. at least back up your statements with better historical accounts.

    so seriously what are we even comparing notes on here? entertainment? sports? business? or some kid's poor concept of asia?

    If we talk about religion it's almost similar w/ its amount of cult

    Japan had that one that released bio weapon/gas in the subway station
    China has the Falun Dafai that tries to spread anti-government sentiments

    Well, OK, you have something of a point, based on the AMAZING 8-word description of the topic. This entire thread kinda went towards an opinionated slant, so that's what the "point" of this thread is.

    BTW, in the 8-word description, one thing is painfully obvious: the PRESENT tense. "IS", not "WAS".

    I can understand your want of respect for the nations. I guess that's what we're doing, in our own twisted way. BUT, I don't understand your comment about how they should have a thread of their own... isn't that what THIS IS?!

    'sides, if we really start arguing, then this would be a debate topic. Clearly, this is in "Plush Room" (IE the free talk area), so we're just stating our opinions.

    And with your comment on neither of them being better than the other, I think a "few" people would disagree.
    Maybe I'll come up eith a sig soon... until then, be patient.
