Well, but it was a *foreign thing.* Anything weird and above all FOREIGN just *has* to have hidden secrets that makes it difficult to learn, because if it were obvious and attractive then the local culture would already have it, right? And would have mastered it long, long ago, and then they'd be muffling laughter behind their hands at the Foreign Devils and their Simplistic Foreign Guns. (This holds true for every freakin' culture in the world about every *other* freakin' culture in the world, from Anglo-Saxon to Zulu; it just does.)
BTW, I absolutely love Ancient Japan's and Ancient Portugal's outfits. Very nice.
