It is a given cliche, a true one of course, that all of us are more similar than not. It is certainly true in a purely physiological or biological sense, but that is certainly not the case when it comes to our cultures and the little rituals and games we play.
I just thought of that after reading the blog of a black man teaching English to really crazy kids in Japan. I just had to post a link to his blog. It will make you laugh:)!!!!
