    Another thing: RAMEN.
    yes I've heard of bento, never had one though... I saw a shop near my house actually selling bento boxes a while back... And the guy owning the shop had a domo-kun tshirt :F

    P.s 5:25 AM... What am I doing with my life...

    But this is really fun. We might just have to excuse ourselves for a while. Which reminds me I am a student - and I still have a load of floor plans to draw. My drafting table's staring back at me. Sheesh

    Even miser has finally realized he has to sleep now. Finally.

    Canada.
    Supposedly migrated to that country before but it failed. Wonder what could've become of me if that was ever pushed through.

    Culturally- Australia
    Politically- Germany
    No offense but I'm pretty sure Australian culture is just English culture with a cheap accent, sunburnt skin, and a surfboard.

    I can't really argue with your picking Germany for politics because I don't know much about that. In Canada, where I'm from the only aspect of German politics we're educated on is the Nazi Party.

    They seem to merge the natural, traditional and super modern in a way that nobody else does. I guess its the harmony thing that brought about a favoring of styles of architecture and design that didn't clash with the pre existing.
    I agree. They're so good in balancing things. Even the minimalist inspired designs usually follow the rules of the Japanese. We've been hit by the japanese bullet.

    Canada interests me the most but as someone who was born and raised here I can say it's not that interesting, I only care because there are some things I would like to change and maintain.

    For travel, at the moment Scotland, just because I haven't been there and I've heard some things, but I suspect I'll hate it if I get there.

    Ireland. I know I'm kinda obsessed with this country but I can't help it as I find it fascinating. I've been there at least once a year since I was 12 and yet there are loads of things left to see and do so I'd love to go a road trip around the country. I find its history really interesting as well and somewhat similar to the Spanish history so theres loads of books I wanna read about it but I'm afraid I dont have time now. Basically I'd like to know every single thing about Ireland and I'd like to be Irish myself :rolleyes: haha

    Have you seen the movie PS I Love You? The one with Gerard Butler? That movie featured Ireland I was blown away by the landscapes. And the movie's based on Cecilia Ahern's novel! (She's an Irish novelist)

    Yes I have! My obssesion got to the point where I even search for Irish films so I can feel closer to the island :rolleyes: Thanks for the advice though, I didn't know it was based on a novel so I might have to read that as well I'm glad you liked the ladscapes, it's a beautiful place to visit to be honest!

    I went through the same thing too, though I cant really call it an 'obsession'. But Ireland's included on my list due to it's lush vegetation and due to me - becoming a very 'nature' person.

    Why is everyone so interested in Finland? My interests lie with Russia and the increasingly socialist inclined states within Latin America: Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and even Brazil along with others.

    Greece interests me a lot, a country that's brooding with knowledge, secrets and history.
    That was long ago. Now it's only poor, really.

    THIS! You forgot cheap beer and BBQ on the beach though. I'd even go as far as saying that Australia has less/worse culture than Britain; it strikes me as a very superficial, hedonistic, and materialistic nation.

    Well that's sad to hear. But I keep hearing of Santorini - and it looks too good.

    It's still a good place to spend your vacation and look at ruins (unless you're German like me, for some unfathomable reason we're not welcome there any more). But as 'the cradle of modern civilization' it's just over-rated.

    But you've been there already? Well did any rude things happen that made you feel unwell 'bout the country? I presume the 'historic' feeling is still there.

    Russia. I've often thought about starting to learn the language, I read a lot of Russian literature. I think it's got an interesting history - going from almost feudalism to communism and a dictatorship so quickly and so recently, and how this and the massive scale of the country affected its population is really interesting to read about.
