Dear 0x64 Hour Board,
If you could change one aspect of our culture, what would it be and why?
People would drive faster. WAY FASTER.

Dear Arnold Sideways,
Scooter boxes! OK, that's not necessarily considered "culture," but it would make driving way cooler. I tried finding a picture for you on the Googles, but no such luck. Also, alas, but it's dark and cold outside, so I'm not going to go ride my bike around the block to take a picture of what a scooter box looks like. Let me just tell you, though, that I prefer the way driving works in Taiwan to that of the States. It's much more exciting and kind of like playing Mario Kart (or something similar) all the time.
Another "cultural" thing I wouldn't mind changing about the States has to do with friendships. I feel like, sometimes at home, being friends doesn't necessarily equate to much. But where I'm currently living, if someone actually refers to you as a friend, it is a great honor, and that relationship is really valued.
Sometimes I actually think I was born into the wrong culture...
