A cool guy
I think some Japanese elderly men are very unique and interesting. I usually think Asian-aged men lack a sense of humor compared to Western-aged men. I think they do not only lack a sense of humor, but they are a bit male chauvinist and conservative, so to speak old fuddy-duddies (I’m sorry if you are offended). However everytime Japanese Nobel winner is announced I’m surprised. beccause they are always very unique, interesting, creative and innovative. It seems that they don’t care about what other people think of them. They move forward following their ideas and beliefs.
This year’s Japanese Nobel winner Satoshi Omura is such a person. He doesn’t look 80 years old and doesn’t seem to be an old man. He is a very cool and excellent biologist.
