How The New Yorker Fell Into the ?Weird Japan? Trap

quote [ I don?t doubt the veracity of these stories, but I am deeply skeptical of the way they are often framed: to maximize the inherent strangeness of the Japanese. Americans, after all, are also having less sex and committing suicide at a higher rate and dying alone and doing kinky cosplay, yet I don?t get the sense reading these stories that these trends are indicative of the fathomless mysteries of the American soul but rather the product of identifiable material and social circumstances. ]

Every time there's a WaCKy JApaN story in the news, I get fifty million links from friends and relatives about it. From now on I'm replying with a link to this article.

CAPTCHAs don’t prove you’re human – they prove you’re American

quote [ Will Google?s self driving cars simply not recognise London?s Black Cabs? Will any yellow car in the UK be classified as a taxi by the infallible algorithm? Will Google refuse to believe I?m human simply because I don?t know what a Twinkie is? ]

Anybody recall how hard it was to prove being a middle-aged US adult in the 80s for Leisure Suit Larry copy protection?
