Because, everything wierd that happens, either comes from japan or china, but mostly japan >_>

Well, it depends what you class as weird. There are many other weird shenanigans in other countries but Asia has more than its fair share of them, I go along with that.

American and Japan are like Ying and Yang, It may be a simplistic way of looking at it but I strongly suspect the two cultures are both attracted to and repulsed by that "Oppisitness" of the other.

As to weirdos...you ever been to a British soccer match?

I think this is a way of explaining yourself, rather than a simple sense of curiosity that exists in normal people.

That, or weird is normal and normal is weird.

Foreign weirdoes as in Wapanese (Western kids over-admiring Japan)?

Why does America attract so many people?

There may be some similarities found between the two.

America attracting so many people? bcuz IMO people think that AMerica is some sort of... amazing place with freedom and all kinds of people so people are all like "WOW! Look at that! *points to certain thing*"

If someone from America came to Japan as a foreign exchange student, ya think they would be crowded with attention like in America? probably. It would be the same when someone from Japan came to America. Heck, it's just how people act around the world. (That's my opinion)

Prolly just a type of rebellion. Kids do that every generation.

No. I'm content with my way.

That's really what matters isn't it? If you spend your whole life trying to please others by being something your not, what are you?.
