i'm sorry once more if my impression has offended anyone. indeed, i have
never meant for it to be a detail and truthful analysis of japan's culture
(to do so would be very off-topic and a few thousands words at the very
least). what i did was to highlight the part about the H-culture in context
with what Patrick was talking about then (Patrick was reading "reference
pictorial books"). Yes, i agree that it is not complete and it sounds
rather naive and stereotyped, i apologize for any distress but from this, i
think i learn alot. thanks.
