OK, that's it! I usually try to stay away from the ye olde "why the **** do Japanese people..." ...but I can't take it anymore, so:
Why the **** do Japanese people get squeemish about raw peas, greenbeans, and carrots (u like a rabbit! silly crazy-a foo...), when they will eat the **** out of some raw fish, sea urchin, sea cucumber, shrimp, shellfish, deer, and HORSE!?!?!?!?! Come on... isn't this one cultural difference that could be looked at objectively? Raw meat vs. raw veggies, hmm...
That's all for now.
