Why does Japan hate chairs?
>>
They sat on chairs during the planning of the Manhattan Project
>>
It would look pretty ugly to have a table right in the middle of your room. Japan has some pretty good aesthetics.
>>
this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair! this chair!

Why do people advise against sleeping on the floor anyway? It's cooling.

If you had chairs, more heat would escape under of your heated table.

I have. It's rare though.

>>102067123
People in American sitcoms wear shoes indoors because sitcoms are filmed in studios and stuff and this leads to gullible people believing all Americans do that.
>>
>>102067152
Tell that to my aching back and joints. Hell when I sleep belly down my chest hurts like no tomorrow. I rather sleep standing up but laying on the floor is comfy.
>>
>>102067233
Ever thought of not lying on your back? Like maybe your sides?
>>
>>102067233
lose some weight and take the strain off said sore joints.

I can try that maybe not for long or sleeping on my arm.

I rather keep my muscles.

Then keep them in a fashion that isn't retarded enough to put that much strain on your joints.

people in freedomland don't or prefer not to wear shoes in their house. like, the whole country. I can confirm this

You mean without shoes or without socks? Because I've heard that Japanese consider walking in the home without anything on your feet to be as rude as wiping your ass on the curtains.
>>
>>102067455
Well then don't do that.
>>

Who the fuck takes their socks off?

My sides.

I do. When I'm home, it's either barefoot or slippers. Never socks.

Say fucking what?

>>102067164

When I'm in other people's houses, I insist on taking my shoes off even if they say to keep them on. Other than an office, I don't know any household that regularly wears shoes indoors.

A lot of houses (modern/recently built) have an entrance way where you can take your shoes off sort of like Japan. Don't know why this is such a mystery to some.
>>
>>102067520
I'd understand if you were a guest not planning to stay for long, but why wouldn't you be barefooted in your own house?
>>
>>102067489

Makes sense. Also explains why socks/pantyhose are amongst the sexiest pieces of clothing.
>>
>>102067489

>>102067520
Any sane person.

>>102067573
I'm gonna start doing this.
>>
>>102067553
If they say to keep them on, you really should you know. Who knows what sorts of diseases their dirty shoes have brought in previously. Or maybe legos.
>>
>>102067607

They're usually in socks when they tell me to keep shoes on. I'm more of a prick that will sacrifice a pair of socks to indirectly tell people to wash their floors if they don't want people to take their shoes off.
>>
>>102067553

If someone tells you to keep your shoes on in their own home, keep your fucking shoes on.
>>
>>102067766
What if someone tells you to wipe ass on their own curtains?
>>

>>102067489
>>102067520
not all of asia is japan, in my place it doesn't matter all that much as long as it's clean. we clean the floor often.

I also wash my ass with water after I poop, if that is relevant to this thread.
>>
>>102067127
The only time I see anyone keep their shoes on when going in a house is if they are just stopping in because they forgot something or wanted to say hi.
>>
>>102067903

In America we clean our ass with curtains.
>>
>>102067190
Wait, you mean everything I see in my chinese cartoons doesn't necessarily happen in real life?
>>
ive never been in a house in america where people removed their shoes. everyone wears their shoes in the house in every house.

i live in the south if that makes a difference.
>>
Chairs take up space and they live in small houses. That's why they have futons that you can put away during the day too, so you make the most of small space.

I sleep on a futon on the floor but I don't put it away since I have a lot of space. I also wear socks and slippers in my home.

This. Besides my apartment, I don't know of any other households besides one where guests are expected to remove their shoes. Also, most people I know wear shoes in their own house. I live in Southern California.

Apparently, some of the floors in Japan get damaged if you're wearing shoes. What's the fucking point of floors if they can't handle shoes?

I don't get it. Why would you risk having dog shit in your house by taking what you wear outside into the house?

Take those fucking things off. Seriously.

And then perhaps you'll have a clean house.
>>
>>102069598
Why would you design floors to handle shoes when you wouldn't wear shoes inside the house in the first place?
>>
>>102066971
yes
>>
I take my shoes off when I go inside to be comfortable and so that my shoes are always in the same place.
>>
>>102069698
There's no such thing as stray dog shit in civilized countries.
