Japanese TV and humor is unique in the world.  I spent some time in Yokahama and Tokyo teaching surgical technique to doctors there.  I remember watching game shows like one where  babys in walkers race through a maze but if they hit the sides their dad gets an electric shock.  This video is so fun because I remember being told “there are 50 ways to offend before you even begin your meal.” 

I also published with Japanese collegues the largest series of women ever undergoing repair of blocked tubes with tiny angioplasty catheters from the inside out.   (Hey I needed a medgadget hook for the post).   It was an honor to work with Professors Osada and Satoh from Nihon University School of Medicine in Tokyo.
