I don't know what Wes could offer, given that he's brown.

You should just contract albee to do the grand scheme of your modding.

lol

i also have many japanese culture and literature books
and i have no hate or anger toward japanese people
yes, historically, japan has been naughty and as a nation it should admit and apologize for what it has done
(still refuses acknowledge a lot of the WWII atrocities like the kidnapping of women and forcing them to be sex slaves ... official stand is that they were volunteers )
but on a personal level, i have many japanese friends and i loved the time i spent in japan

Well, from the impression I've gotten from japanese anime, they love chopping up and raping themselves just as much as other asians.

I had a chinese coworker once that had hate for the japanese. Was pretty funny. He wouldn't buy japanese cars because of the war crimes the japanese never apologized for. So he drove a BMW 7-series.

lol, main reason is too short of a focal length. Makes the center of your face look really big almost like if you was up in my grill. You are officially part of the team. Welcome aboard. Your admission is paid for and I'll at least get you a dinner or lunch for my personal thanks being helping.
