Erm, it's a bit of an in-joke... the whole 'When I see a spade I call it a spade' (Oscar Wilde). Basically it's a quote from an advert for a company that says they don't use technical jargon, they use the simple stuff to explain it to people :)

I did my Dissertation on The Last Samurai, and I'm a bit into Japan and Japanese Culture. I have a few more Last Samurai icons if you're interested. By a few more I mean 195 in total

Oh I see XD We don't have that advert here so yeah XD

I'm not the biggest Last Samurai fan, don't like Tom Cruise much. But Japan is interesting. I like the manga and all. And I study Chinese XD So I was drawn to your icon XD

Haha TC is a bit of a love him, hate him person for most people. He's not my favourite or anything, but I love the film, because its just all about Japan. Actually pretty historically accurate as well, though somewhat stereotypical, however, if you want to look into it, there are things you can easily research to know more about Japan. The music used in the film is less Japanese though. /geek

There are some great Japan shots in the film though, even if you remove all the TC ones!

You study Chinese? Oh so very cool! I love the look of the characters... wish I knew how to write some etc! The Eastern world is an interesting place to me though, I like looking into things like that, especially in History.
