    Still more at home with violence than partial nudity, huh? :D Anyhow, I find the use of racing swimwear by severely obese people just as ironic as it is unsightly. Blame the people with poor self-concept, not the apparel. ;)

    Interesting here in America, where we are so puritan about the human body and being exposed to it ( nothing to do with pornography, that's different). Also interesting we seem to have no problem with gratuitous violence in entertainment, while European does. However, when it comes to a graphic photo of some sort of accident, news outlets here won't show it where in most countries they do.

    Your comment about poor self- concept is spot on. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Ankle bracelets and ankle tattoos are a thing here. Amazing to me the women who have elephant ankles, choose to draw attention to, and accentuate this 'feature'.

    seems to contradict with this:
    Though it's important to note that with the USA, we're generalising a huge country that's not as culturally homogeneous as most, but still doesn't carry as many inherent differences as an entire continent. I would still assume Germany, France, Britain, and Scandinavia, among others, are more lax with nudity and risqué clothing. Both Finland and Austria have nude saunas, and while it's not for everyone, I believe most see it as having a healthy relationship with the human body, rather than the participation being dirty. In other countries, nude beaches are more common than I imagine they are in most American states. That's not to say you won't find countries in Europe where these liberal thoughts seem alien, so there's a bit of both.
    Yes, but there's a difference between censorship and cultural acceptance. As a European, I can feel fairly alienated when some of our American users passionately discuss weapons and military equipment. :D I don't mean that as an insult, as it's not like having an interest of that variety translates to irresponsibility or improper use, but I think casual chatter about that topic would raise more eyebrows this side of the pond.

    Censorship of graphic entertainment does not apply to Europe as a whole, though we may be stricter about age restrictions. Germany is the example that springs to mind when speaking about video game censorship, and that's also the country killkenny1 has understandably mentioned here on these forums. A very controversial game, Manhunt 2, saw debate on both sides of the pond, and was ultimately banned in Britain due to a misconceived link the prequel had to a murder.
    Yes, those tattoos are rather distasteful, and I don't think they are entirely limited to America, but thankfully, it's not the biggest eyesore to be surrounded by. :p

    What is it with you and feet?
    Do you have some Tarantino foot fetish or something?

    When I go for dim sum, I'll never forget an order of chicken feet.

    Not a fetish in any way. Only when people don't take care or them I find this disgusting.

    Last night, I bought 2 new pairs of pants at JCPenney and a pair of gym shorts at Macy's. A week ago, I bought 2 new coats at Sears and a new belt at Macy's.

    Having to buy new all new clothes is the ONE issue about losing weight.

    Couldn't bear one more tight draw ruining yet another would-be sublime experience.
