    A friend of mine was recently on a plane, flying from the United States to Japan, sitting next to a Mormon and a fundamentalist Protestant, who kept trying to convert each other all the way there.

    Not that religion peddlers are common here, but the local tactic is more insidious. Most often they pair up a young and pretty girl with a chaperon. Guess who first address the victim, before the handler steps in for the kill of the supposedly weakened victim.

    [Always reminds me of the cheap but clean hotel in Rio I moved to after the generally known and expensive one turned out to be less than sanitary. The reason for them having the luxurious and meticulously clean bath rooms I found out when I was awaken from my after-beach siesta by the porter peddling one of his fancy dressed female, um, “friends”. Selling practices are really universal, even if the definition of “room service” isn’t. :-)]

    Fortunately there are lots of pretty girls around here, so you are naturally inoculated against the sinful practices of religious fanatics. :-P
