Advice the Japanese give their own countrymen on how to handle the peculiarities of American culture.
Gosh, it’s always so discomfiting to see ourselves as others see us.
How is this discomforting? Most of these are just pointing out cultural differences and are actually saying POSITIVE things about American culture.
I like what a lot of it said. It’s nice to hear something about Americans that doesn’t make us all sound purely fat and lazy. I would also like to point out that they make a point about the vending machines. We need cooler vending machines…
This is actually really fascinating!!
HE BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF
I actually found this pretty depressing because when Happy asks her if she’s boxed before, she looks so proud of herself when she says she has, and then he just kind of demeans her response by suggesting that she wasn’t a real boxer, and you see her face just drop.
Natasha Romanoff: professional to an extent.
She’s professional the whole way through — Happy is the one who isn’t just stupefyingly unprofessional but vicious in his attempt to punch her when her back was turned.
Literally. He tried to punch a woman he’d just met, before she’d gotten any gloves, before he’d explained anything else to her. Fuck anybody who thinks that Natasha’s treatment of him (which is so obviously instinct and training, not a desire to humiliate him, unlike his violence toward her) is unprofessional.
