What's the problem? At least his pants aren't around his ankles. The guy in the picture isn't even particularly big. There are a lot more big bellies on display in the U.S.

This is a problem? When guys are walking around with their pants below their ass and underwear hanging out? Yeah, no....

There must be something about Asians that make them so unembarrassed about their behavior. There mostly the ones I see picking their noses in public with abandon. At least I have to give to them that they don't roll up the boogers they get and just flick them at someone.


The other thing is them spitting everywhere, a few times inside of a building.

Not all Asians. Mostly the Chinese. You do know that practically all the teachers and intellectuals in China were rounded up and killed right? That uneducated peasants became the ideal Chinese citizen? This is why China has been trying so hard in recent years to educate the populace that spitting, pissing in the street, letting your kids defecate in the street, picking your nose etc etc is not polite.

I have to leave for a few hours. When I return, I expect the power of Fark to have transformed this thread into the tribute to the fit and trim female torso that we all know it should be.

I just wanted to say good luck - we're all counting on you.

Voiceofreason01: YES! Where is the oppressive communist government when you really need it?

The communist government has long promoted the idea that being polite and well mannered was the mark of bourgeois scum. When the Olympics rolled around, they had to tell the citizens to clean up their acts so they wouldn't offend anyone. Especially the taxi drivers.

I've heard of Chinese doctors who emigrated having to be told that if your patient is obese, you just don't say "You are sick because you are so fat. Stop eating so much, fatty. This all your fault," while poking the patient in the belly.

It is hot & humid in Beijing. Right now it's 23:39 (military time) 68 degrees F, 88% humidity, dew point 64 degrees F.

That's pretty sticky for being close to midnight.

The bellies I can deal with, but someone needs to explain to me why Chinese men allow their mole hair to grow. That's just nasty.

"They're known as bang ye, or 'exposing grandfathers'(despite their age range)."

I'd like to have a t-shirt that says "Bang Ye!" I'm not exposing my Oly Ball in public, however; except at the beach.

i found the most disgusting belly picture, and even though I've seen it here before, I'm afraid to post it. So whatever, take this......I just want to be popular.

Boy did I miss the boat. I fully expected this thread to be full of hot Asian girls in various stages of undress and a bunch of middle aged white guys drooling ...

I think part of it is the sheer population density. In most dense urban centers around the world, the odd effect of so many people is that you start to ignore them around you. Where I am, even someone trying to go for some crazy punk outfit or skanky look hardly gets any attention.

The other part of it was already mentioned above -- these were peasant societies (for the most part) only a decade or two ago, and their habits will follow from that.

Anyway, those bellies are better than what Americans have to view every day at Walmart (new window)

Yeah, anything to do with the nose in Japan is deeply shameful. Sneezing? Shame. Booger? Oh the shame. Blowing your nose? It's like having severe diarrhea, best done in the bathroom where no one can see and then you wait a while to be sure no one can connect you with the awfulness of what you have done.
