    the child is how children are the center of attention in chinese families while in german families children are a part of the family.
    new things just shows that german are a bit more conservative.

    "the child is how children are the center of attention in chinese families while in german families children are a part of the family."

    And that the child is looked after equally by mum, dad, grandma, grandpa in chinese families, whereas this responsibility falls mainly on the mum and dad in German families.

    You want 5 mins of your life back, yet you`re on a boredom site? Riiiight.

    And yeah, the children one is the centre of attention versus general family member.

    The new things one is that the Chinese embrace and look at new things, wheras the Germans are cautious and back away from new things.

    Im like the Chinese because I like sun and rain :)

    I`m german and most of this is so true I can`t believe it :)

    the family thing is probably wrong because in chinese culture these generations all live in one house while in german culture they have own households, but the grandparents are still there and watch for the kids.

    Natalie.. the one with the cinese symbols on the top might be the chinese culture..

    and that tokio hotel girl.. oww yeah you are so wrong.. tokio hotel is hated all over germany so they tried to translate their songs to english and infect other countries before they see how stupid it is.. and Bill.. well he`s just a friggin transvestite looking for attention.. I wouldn`t be surprised if he had sex with his 8-12 year old fans..

    so much for that

    the waiting in queue thing is way off for germany. it`s usually more like a cluster than a straight line, and people trying to get in before everyone. :] at least in the part of germany i lived in, most of the time it was like that.

    "I didn`t get the definition of beauty

    and the restaurants.. there are more restaurants in China ??"

    Western culture generally is attracted to tan girls, whereas if you go to China, all you see is advertisements for skin whitening cream and girls with umbrellas when the sun is out.

    I think having familiarity with at least one of these cultures is required to appreciate it.

    I love deanmalenko for his statement about tokio hotel, since it`s SO true...

    the restaurant pic is about the sound intensity but doubt that this is really true...

    it`s so empty on the street sunday`s because shops and stores are closed in germany

    so, you are saying that all people in germany dont dance around in lederhosing playing the polka and chugging beer?

    I like fudgy`s explanation above (and the figure on the German side has larger breasts.)


    "and the restaurants.. there are more restaurants in China ??"

    That one probably means the restaurants in Germany are quieter.
