I like Japan because they gave birth to a lot of well known and respected companies, they have wacky game/prank shows and TV commercials, and that's all I can think of.

I don't like Japan for being the target of worship from anime-obsessed failures.

I'm going to make a thread called "What do you like the most about America" now.

Lots of things, but just to say something different, their education and politeness.

QFT. I don't much care for anime/hentai, et al. And I'm Asian too.

Cheap manga, and the fact that noone will sit next to me on the bus so I get alot of space.

Also the cops won't harass me if I'm drunk.

Japan manufactured the greatest car of all time, the Nissan Skyline. Skylines can easily handle more than 1,000 horsepower without any damage to the powertrain. The current Skyline, the R35 is now available in the US.

Personally I would take a Skyline over a Supra any day.
