To share another one of my quirks, I will tell you that I was watching a Japanese news channel while working today. I needed some background noise while I concentrated on work. If I put on anything I can understand, it can become very distracting, and listening to music has the opposite effect for me. If I listen to classical music, I end up giving it my undivided attention. The other reason for putting on a live Japanese news channel is that I admire Asian culture in general and Japanese culture in particular. Their work ethic is legendary, and needed some inspiration on that front.
