    Anthrozoology would be your closest bet, I think. Not my area so I can't really comment.

    you should probably ask Snax since he's currently in Korea and has even done time in the Korean Army

    Can confirm #1 and #3, and I'm only Canadian. But Imperial's right; population density and crazy density have a mathematical correlation.

    As for everyone going to hell, I've seen less of that, more, "Repent, for the end of days is upon us!"
    Strangely, we're all still breathing. Presumably.

    Actually, while I can't confirm 2, when I was in New York once, some guy screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" and tackled me, straddled me, wrested my iPod from my hands and cut my headphones with heavy duty wire clippers. The kind you would see at Home Depot. Did he think my highly mainstream MP3 player was a bomb or something? I never figured it out. And when I tried to stand up, he just screamed again and pushed me back down. He didn't take the iPod either. After a while, he finally got off of me, and just sort of ran off. It sounds hilarious now that I'm writing about it but at the time it was honestly terrifying.

    Same. Also extremely passive aggressive Mormons and crazy evangelicals with huge signs in obnoxious fonts about how we're all going to Hell for not murdering every gay person.

    3. You can find girls and boys of all shapes and sizes all over the world, dear.

    These are really things you'll find in any city in the world to varying degrees, to be honest. In NYC I mostly found people trying to sell tours and stuff of famous landmarks for extortionate prices. In Istanbul, it was all about expensive carpets. Singapore must be a truly bizarre place not to have busty ladies and phone stealing...
    Our definition of busty is, like, B cup

    Apparently these were some ginormous tits that they were making fun of one guy for because he literally could not look away

    Also, dude, hobos are nonexistent in singapore, so hobos chasing you for your phone is literally unheard of

    All true

    Though cities with a higher population density like NYC also make for a higher crazy density.

    #1 varies. I've had so many mixtape forced into my hands for no price but I've heard of people who do it and try to charge.

    Tits are illegal in Singapore?

    In contrast, all 3 of these are illegal in Singapore

    Wow, America sounds like a terrifying place.

    I'd still go just for point #3 though...

    Basically this.

    Also, I have a feeling the price point was not their choice. Pretty sure Sony would've been most unhappy if their $60 version was being undercut by a $30 PC one.
