Is there a name for obsessing about other people's obsessions?
The OP might have this.

Did you really bother to read all that C & P

I just glanced over it. Something about being more concerned about every little spec on the hands
but not caring about sliding down a muddy hill.. or something like that.
I guess that's why restaurants require the employees to wash their hands after using the WC but do
not require a full shower.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

1. To clarify why chinese spending so much time in devouring food is that we usually have large family and food are pricy and insufficient throughout the history. We tolerate zero waste especially in food in our culture and it's a way for us to enjoy food by taking time to clean it up properly.

2. As u know, we have several generations live under the same roof. Toodler would pick up whatever they find on the floor and eat it. So to prevent choking and swallowing poisons we do particular take care of the floor in the house precisely outside is so dirty.

3. Most Chinese doesn't explore the nature as much as the westerns does. Because we take our life seriously. Anything that's endangering our life is not as encouraging. Concerning dirts on hands are just a way of expressing caring for our kids.

4. Chinese doesn't like to beat around the bush too. We are just not as bold as the West in expressing and straight right to the point of hurting others feeling.

5. Root are very important for the Chinese. Perhaps back in 200 years ago, they go back to the old town to settle down because that old town does make them prosperous(feng shui) and the good old place mentality.
