> Chinese person: Why don’t you like fish?
> Me: I like fish, it’s just hard to eat it with all these tiny bones in it.
> Chinese person: Don’t fish in America have bones in them too?
> Me: Yes, but the chef removes them. That’s his job.
Question: Do Westerners not eat a lot of (otherwise tasty) fish simply because they have too many bones?

> Chinese person: Oh, your home is by the ocean. You must eat a lot of fish there.
> Me: No, not really.
> Chinese person: Why not?
> Me: Ummm… I don’t know, we just don’t.
Question: Yeah, why don’t we? Simple economics?
