    Default Physical variability

    Out of curiosity if those sailor suits actually look good on real people I googled Japanese class photos and got the following as examples.





    Well, first of all I don't think the outfits are flattering at all.


    But what really surprised me was that the girls looked ridiculously similar. At least to American eyes. I don't mean their clothes I mean their hair is all the same color. They're nearly all the same hight to a couple inches, very similar body proportions, probably all within 20 pounds of each other, same skin tone.

    Almost a little creepy.

    So is this some internet oddity or is the genetic diversity over there just not very high?

    Also is it not that things are odd over there but that America and some of the other western nations are the oddballs due to cultural mixing and immigration. And in many countries the kids look very similar and don't differentiate until they get older?

    Thats one hell of an image you got there, any possible chance of resizing it or using it as an attachment.
    Mmm not so sure on this one, I guess its dominant genes?
    Someone can be mixed with any kind of race and still look white/another race, I guess its kind of like that, my aunt married an American, and she's Korean, her kids look more Korean than they do white.

    Resizified for your viewing pleasure.

    That good?

    So you think maybe there are some dominant "this is how tall you'll be at this age" genes present that trump variation? I suppose that's possible.

    Actually maybe more possible with hair and eye color. I know I've heard dark eyes are dominant so if you blend in blue eyes you still are left with dark more or less.

    It's harder to tell the difference because in countries like the USA or the UK there are more noticeable differences between people. Plus, someone who lived in Japan could easily tell the difference between those girls because they're used to distinguishing between people of their own race/culture.
    Just like the way anyone could tell the difference between a number of brown haired kids, even with similar hair cuts.

    I could tell them apart by face too.

    Though I wonder if even the Japanese could tell them apart from the sides or rear from say 50 meters. This because not only does their hair have the same shade and texture they aren't exactly experimenting with a variety of styles here.

    It's the other way around. The genetic diversity in America is unusually high, since it's basically composed of people from all around the world. The genetic diversity in Europe is slightly lower than that of north America, but still unusually high for various historical and geographical reasons.

    Also, I have it on good authority that Asians are robots from space.

    actually, the reason for the high level of homogeny in japanese DNA is because japan has been an isolated, closed culture for most of it's existence. that isolation started to gradually fade after World War II ended with the U.S. occupying japan and helping to rebuild it, writing the country a consititution similar to the U.S. own that would open japan to the world and transform it into an open, capitalist country. this all happened a scant fifty years ago, which is tantamount to happening just an hour ago in the scope of the history of the world. as such, japanese blood is some of the purest, most homogenized in the world. ergo; a very high degree of physical and mental similarity in the japanese people. they are actually a very lucky people. think about it; the U.S. is one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world. as such, there is a high degree of civil unrest in the country as a result of just culture clash alone. compare that to japan, which has the lowest crime rate in the world, and you can go just about anywhere there, day or night, and feel as safe as you would in your own home. japan DOES have it's problems, but on the whole, i'd say Japan is just about the most wonderful place to live in the entire world. BTW, i happen to think that japanese schoolgirl uniforms are very flattering indeed, much more so than the trashy fashions american girls tend to wear...

    Well, I'll give them "not trashy".

    Believe it or not, but japanese people can't tell the difference between you and your sister either. All gaijins look the same to them.

    I thought this video was hilarious. Especially the sign that said, "We do not accept foreign customers. However, we accept foreign customers that are accompanied by Japanese." Maybe that's why those little girls look the same, because Japanese don't like "interbreeding" (couldn't find a better word) with anyone who's not Japanese.

    By the way, I don't like those school uniforms. However, it does make me wonder why anime girls do look better in those uniforms.
    If Minecraft had a Japanese intro.

    Asians reproduce via fission. When an old Asian reaches the end of their life, they stab them with a katana. The elderly person explodes, and highly trained birthing ninjas catch the resulting 4-6 infants, each of which are genetically identical to the parent.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    It's true. That's how me and my other 3 brothers came into this world.

    But what really surprised me was that the girls looked ridiculously similar. At least to American eyes. I don't mean their clothes I mean their hair is all the same color. They're nearly all the same hight to a couple inches, very similar body proportions, probably all within 20 pounds of each other, same skin tone.

    Almost a little creepy.

    So is this some internet oddity or is the genetic diversity over there just not very high?

    Also is it not that things are odd over there but that America and some of the other western nations are the oddballs due to cultural mixing and immigration. And in many countries the kids look very similar and don't differentiate until they get older?
    Well...the girls you see in the picture looks very similar but you shouldn't use the word "ridiculously". Yes, maybe to American eyes, that is awkward. However, their hair plays the big part of their dress codes. Their hair should not go longer pass the shoulders. And a lot of people would like to follow the little "hidden" trend, just like most of the Asian kids back in my high school, girls starts having hairs like that long, then put it all up and make a lose miny buns, then other girls does the same thing, which makes them all look the same. Again, sorry to use this word but "FOBS" is what I mainly see that is similar to those photos above. Most girls just does the same thing to look cool. Now if you go to Tokyo, you'll see almost 90% of teenage girls are having the same hair styles and same hair colours. Trust me, you will! =]

    To respond on your very last sentence. It could be true that people look similar until they get older having their own appearance, but when they are still teenagers, they would always like to go with the majority. Like majority of teenagers like a typical style, they follows it to not feel left out. You can search for more photos from other Asian countries, and look at those photos with your American eyes and see if you notice their similarities and their few differences.

    It's true, Japanese don't like to mix with others. I was thinking the same thing when i saw the pictures. Scary. Down here is where there is absolutely no pure bloods. Jamaican are just the result of mixed up breeding. We have a little african, chinese, indian, caucasion, just about a little of everyone in our blood all as a result of slavery and later indentured workers. I can't seem to remember if the japanese came here to work as indentured workers but i'm sure that the chinese did though. The chinese are taking over. On almost every street corner there is a either a chinese shop or wholesale.

    Props to the Japanese for not mixing with others. There is such diversity down here probabely even more so than in America. The culture is great don't get me wrong but to be like the Japanese where we all look alike and no one can say that because i'm brown i'm better and can get better jobs, would be sweeeeet!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah for the Japanese.
    The fool sees the bend but doesn't look beyond it.

    Um. For lack of a better way to say it, I think the anime girls look better in those outfits because they can fill them out. Also anime girls have visible eyeballs. Looking at the difference between Japanese acress photos and impromptu photos like these leads me to believe that either Japanese acresses have a different eye structure or they're deliberately opening their eyes wide for photos.

    What is FOBS?

    Unless they all dye their hair to be the same color and texture that's genetic. But yeah they do style it the same. I find it hard to believe that hair is styled however. I guess they could have gotten together and arranged that they won't put up with the crap American girls often go through styling their hair.
